Hi.Ste
Wow your photographs have improved and I like the scenery work... nice to see how much you have added in past year... p.s. i'm still loving the class 66 i bought even though it's out of place.

Cheers,
Ste.

I need to sort myself out a new 66. Mine sounds like an old washing machine and the lighting was ditched in favour of DCC
cheers, Mark.

Hi Jamwrx, welcome to the Forum :)
Thanks for the comments, the signal box is the Graham Farish Scenecraft offering, lovely model and looks great with modern stock trundling past.

Hope that helps,
Ste :)
