Nice! Is that Iron Ore ballast? Nice locos too - is that the Glass Box in the back? :)

Brian,

Are those coaches kits, or RTR models?

The coaches are Roco 'Abteilungs', with standard Roco couplings the adjoining buffers are a mere 1mm apart., but the buffers are sprung and the couplings have a sort of swiveling sprung compensator. These coaches are only about 5.5" long ( sorry that should certainly be metric :( )

Yes it is the Glass Box in the background.

Ballast haven't got a clue it was some I had left over.

Thanks for the positive reception. I'll go and look for another snap or two.

Thank you, it's feels right being back. As long as everyone understands that nothing I say is to be given any weight or credence whatsoever :lol:

Another snap. This time part of the Southern region which was overan by the might of the DR and has been relegated to the garage.
