New Years Day saw the completion of a little project that I have been working on for a few months now - shiftingsands.fotopic.revisited ​- the resurrection of the pages and images from my old Shifting Sands fotopic site to my blog at http://o9modeller.blogspot.co.uk/. These detail the construction of the layout and some of the rolling stock and locomotives.



This has only proved possible through the thoughtfulness of fellow narrow gauge modeller (and 009 Society 'Roving Reporter') Mick Thornton in creating copies of the index pages of the site back in 2009. From these I have salvaged the text and gone back and recreated the images from my original files. Something of a labour of love!

The pages can be found on the right hand menu of the site. If using the mobile version of Blogger, they can be found by tapping on the 'Home' banner towards the top of the page and selecting from the list of pages.

Enjoy!

Colin

I have see 'The Sands' in the flesh and can confirm the excellence of Colin's modelling.

Great to read through this again Colin.. pretty much followed the build from the start and I'm glad the picture of Jay on the running plate is there. (That was a nice day out Smile )
