My Christmas Present finally arriving - Graham Farish Blue Tornado.

Beautifully made and detailed, shame that part of the running gear fell off when it came out of the box before opening the tender to fit the chip. Anyway pushed plastic piece back and all seems to be well now.

Magnificent show piece for my beginners layout. The only steam loco I intend to run on my otherwise modern diesel themed layout.

I finally managed to post a photograph here so I may now manage to show more of my layout shortly.

Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you find everything you hoped for in your stockings  :D

Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Looks magnificent George. I'm looking forward to getting Sir Nigel Gresley for my Christmas pressie, but I don't want to see him in stockings.  :D

Merry Xmas.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Hmmm seems to be a common factor appearing here... We had a review model (Well BEN A did) and the more we ran it around Horseley Fields, the more parts of the running gear fell off before it eventually jammed up on one side!...

Happy Christmas all. Well I was very lucky this week my wife toke me on a surprise 4 day break to Berlin for my 30th Birthday.

Amazing city full of history and so much todo, on my last day I found a model shop of a side street and wow how good was it. Full of all gauge locos, rolling stock, buildings, trees you name it they had it 80% was second hand and the rest new.

They had draws that you pull out to view all the second hand goods I was in heaven
this is a link to there website http://www.michas-bahnhof.de

I found a couple of nice bits but as most rolling stock was german I thought it may look a little out of place on my layout.

I paid €24 for both of these.

First was a steel wagon.


And the second was a power supply wagon.

Never been into Micha's but I've ordered stuff online from them a couple of times - very good service.
