I caught up with my French Schneider loco at a show recently. Its new owner has reworked it as a Portuguese engine, and very good it looks, too. Unluckily, I didn't have a camera with me to record its ...

I came across this picture some time ago. It shows Schools class "Repton", somewhat modified for foreign service, although the setting appears to be British. Can anyone provide the "Why ...

You're right about the walking, Bob. I took a tall stool, but hardly used it. The coaches are a mixed bunch, as you say, made a bit more so by the use of a tramway coach from Shellsea, which was stan ...

I was on my own, operating Great Sutton, so did not have much time to see the show, and indeed missed two or three layouts altogether. I did like these two exhibits, starting with some Belgian Vicinal ...
