Hey Ben, would love to hear how the Fowler 4p is going on your layout as it sure is missed on mine :(
Regards, Jed

Hi LMSrail,

It's getting on alright, I need to give the wheels a good clean soon, as it has been stuttering a bit of late :( But hopefully I'll get it running real good again :D

Just to say I've done some more filming of my Black 5 and made up this little rig to film some of it :P

Also I had to take some pictures of my 08 for this weeks 'Photographic phoolery', so this is one of the pictures I got

Nice to see the 92099 fit's well on it's chassis(I was surprised how well it did on one of mine).Look forward to see how you get on with the tender.That Jacobs Cream Crackers AEC RT "widebody" bus looks familiar(good value at a couple of quid folks-No catch next time you see the offer in a magazine,I'd go for it!).I did notice the Pullman,but that seems to have vanished.Hope it's okay BTW!

Right then, today I decided to have a break from revision and such, I made a quick mock up of my new photographic scene that'll be (eventually) replacing current one (which I've been trying to get rid of, and may have just found a buyer for)

The model is complete, still needs inspection pits, crane attachment, observation pier completion, colour and the end wall details right then, "Pictures" I hear you cry!

Hi Ben,

i like the idea of using works as a photographic scene. Something i haven't seen before. Keep us updated on this one! Very nice graphics btw.

Merry Christmas!

The L1s days are numbered! I have come to a decision to sell it as and when the new Hornby GWR Tanks are released. I'm not over the moon about the 42xx though...as I have been secretly (for the past few months) been kit bashing a 42xx and it has been coming close to completition...just requires a small section to be cut out painting and a chassis (a modified old Hornby 28xx one)

Which Tank I get is another question though, one I will think through carefully. a 42 would probably stay on my track better than a 72, but I've already got a 42....so the choices will be weighed up ;) also expect a Blue King :P

Oh and I got a new model today, pictures soon!
