I came back from the recent Wycrail show with the motorised chassis from a Dapol "Terrier", in working order but in need of a clean up and oil around. This is going to be a long-term projec ...

Nice idea, Bob. Will the siding next to the loco shed become the company's wagon repair shop - seeing you anticipate both goods and passenger vehicles using it? Now you've just got to find a new home ...

An O gauge figure (probably 1:48 scale) on the tractor seat fits perfectly, giving a hint to the scale.

I should like the tractor to represent a Ford 9N, which was current at the end of the 1940s a ...

I've been on the look-out for a suitable road vehicle for Tallahatchie without much success as most of the available models are from the period 1910-20. Then I saw this at Wycrail yesterday; it turns ...
