This is the most recent purchase is intended to work with my DMU set and was a bit of an impulse buy. It was on offer at about half its full retail price. It is a Heljan model and when I opened the bo ...

I must admit to having a liking for rail cars and DMUís. This goes back to I think to when I was a lad and we regularly travelled from Watford Junction to St Albans Abbey on a Sunday. At first we were ...

As well as the two steam locos I was given came this home made Bubble car.
I have added passengers and a driver at each end one standing and one sitting.
The under frame detail on this old Lima mode ...

We come now to what is probably my favourite class of diesel, the English Electric class 37. I would think probably one of the most successful locomotives of the 1955 BTC Modernisation Plan built in t ...

I have long admired the GWR railcar powered by two under floor AEC diesel engines, the fore runner of the DMU.
The Lima model I bought second hand when doing an exhibition with Two Sisterís Farm. I ...

Here we see the 04 no 11222 shunting a CCT wagon in the yard and then some wooden mineral wagons at Willin Ford station.

Another pair of locos I have long been rather fond of are the BR class 03 and 04ís
I have an example of each, both of which I bought second hand. Although small I think they both ooze character and c ...

In reality the 26 was on offer at a silly price and I liked the look of it so bought one. It is a Heljan model and runs superbly being very heavy. All the details on the buffer beams though make shunt ...

Now you are probably all wondering what a Scottish 26 is doing in the border counties.
The fiction is it is on test working some of the stone trains as the class 26ís had smaller wheels and were lowe ...
