Had a running session this morning and thought I'd record a little of it.

Something of a record for me, 3 locos running at the same time.

Hope you enjoy it :wink:

Hi Jim - Love the parcels train, perfect depiction of a 1960s working!

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

Thanks very much Dan for your comment, glad you like it.

Thanks again Jim, I really like parcel stock, more so than passenger coaches really, in fact
my most recent purchase can be seen briefly (well the roof anyway) behind
the 08, a stove 6 wheeler, too clean though, needs weathering :wink:

Remarkable sights and sounds. All you need to do is add some coal smoke and diesel fumes!

Yep, another great one Jim. I must get mine running soon, but this b###y model boat in my Christmas stocking is taking up all my spare time at the moment!
