Cool, i'm hoping to go into my local model railway shop and buy some more scatter to go on my newly made mountain. but just can never find the time, but school has finished for 6 weeks now, so hoping to get down to some modeling. :P YAY. looking forward to seeing those hedges.

This should be arriving sometime this week.

It was a lucky find actually, as I recently found out that at some point in 1963, 3 members of the class were shedded at St Blazey with 75005 herself being recorded as working the North Cornwall line at some point in '64. (75005 was a Yeovil Town loco from '65, so it will be interesting to see whether or not it has the 83E shed code).

Well my 1975 Airfix Prarie has just come back from a heavy general at Swindon Works (A.K.A Tennants Trains in Halesowen) and what can I say, it's looks spectacular.

Yes, that is real coal.

Seriously, I recommend this place to anyone that's even remotely interested.
