Hi there,

All my components ( resistors, capacitors, circuitry, type of stuff ) I get off eBay, My track I got most from Roxley Models Although they didn't have all the points I needed I ended up going to Invicta Model Rail and Addlestone Models. I generally buy 80% of my trains/wagons/coaches from Roxley. I buy the rest off ebay or eHattons.

I guess all those places are a sensible distance from you in New Malden. A well resourced area! Keep up the good work.

Your attention to detail and a bravery with new loco's is superb - mine tend to sit for a few weeks as I (a) save the cash for a sound chip and (b) pluck up the bravery to dismantle a model!

Mine is mainly (a) lol

I have got 2 x 21-Pin chips sitting there. I dont know which one to do next. I got a far wake available to me to do though. Sleeping above about 20 trains waiting for modification.

I would do a vote but doubt there is much interest.

Class 57 done, although I wished I had more functions.

Haven't taken any pictures of it yet though.

Here are some pictures of my Class 08 Freightliner

Lighting is a great touch, very neat work too.
