From these people on ebay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/graingeandhodder-online?_trksid=p2047675.l2559. It is on a portable laptop tray with wheels.

Hi Peter,

I thought We'd 'lost you' it's been sooo long !!
Sort of fills the room, quite extensive when seen all together.

I've kept an eye in here from time to time but haven't been very vocal! Not had much to say, as things are now getting momentum I should be about a bit more hopefully!

PeterH's Great Central themed layout.

Postby PeterH » Wed Dec 30, 2020 1:58 pm

How has it been 4 years since I last updated this! To be honest there hasn’t been as much progress at all, I have finally got track all down and have started on the scenery. I’ve mainly been focusing on building 1980s steam railtour for our clubs DCC layout, the first train is the SLOA set which is pretty much complete. The second set is the Intercity Executive charter set. The idea being to recreate ‘The Shakespeare Limited’ and other tours from the late 80s period. The locos for it are 4468, 4498, 4472, 5305 and 46229 (with 4771 and 777 on the way).

This last photo of the excellent Dapol 43xx shows the corner I’m currently working on. Hillside forming, tunnel building and soon ballasting and other scenery.

Hi PeterH,

At least you remembered how to get back in here - 4 years, wow.
I'm tempted by the new Dapol 43XX, but really can't justify buying any more locos.
My old Bachmann split chassis version will have to soldier on.

Doesn’t time fly! Had to create a Flickr account though as Photobucket I used originally is no longer free. The Dapol 43xx is a truly fine model, one of the best I’ve ever bought actually. I’ve got a video of it running at the club:
