What a FANTASTIC collection you have.
I there is not a single item I have seen that I don't want for myself.
I Model Southern region but also really like anything London Transport so your stock is right up me street.
I see you have Sarah Siddons and it is really nice, do you have anything else London Transport as I would love to see them.
Keep up the great modelling and photos.

Hi OliverSR,Thankyou for your nice comment.I am not the best modeller by far but have a go anyway It gives me enjoyment.As you can probably see my layout is #Busy#Alot of EFE buses on routes such as 21A 229;182;177;241(RF)227 ;705;725 and also EFE L.T. vehicles plus the Corgi treelopper.You will probably know of Kingsway models who make L.T. bus garage kits with card>damn good too and again ,very helpful to the enquiring mind? :D Being an ex-Sidcup laddo you can see the connection with the chosen bus routes I am still looking to squeeze in a model of either Abbey Wood or Plumstead depot Somewhere on the layout.It might mean removing the cold water tank in the loft :roll: As i think i mentioned I sold my Northern Line EFE motorised and rewheeled underground unit to Rails of Sheffield quite a while ago.If only I had known.I do not have any other rail LT vehicles but being an ex juvenile bus and train spotter (When elf and safety were not known and you could wander around sheds and bus garages) I used to pedal off to various depot,s taking picci,s (in B/W) also locos in the 50,s I will try to download them onto the comp.it will be trial and error as you can see it took long enough for me to get this far Thanks again Ron

Hi Matt,sorry about that.A standard DJh to build ,the onle tricky bit is making sure the trailing axle is not under or over sprung as this can cause one of the driving axles to be clear of the rail.If your ever round seaford way my missus does a good kate and sid(Steak and kidney) pie or curry
