Thank you!

I like that small layout a lot!
Lots of space and also lots of switching activity possible.
Also the fiddle yard providing a variety of trains... must be great to see it at work.
Success at the shows and come back with plenty of photos to share here, please!

I know about Paul Windle and his work.
Is he still working?
I would love to get an 1/32 scale 0-4-0 & T Couillet if that is still possible!!!
Do you know how could I contact him?

Thank you again.

Thanks, chaps!

Paul is still around but I don't believe he is doing commissions any longer, though I don't have his details I just see him at shows (or at least used to!)...

Daniel: I have some other photos of it as well as the CM article but then I dabbled in TTe for a while, however I'm back into H0e, based around the same part of the world (Central Europe) but now in the imaginary country of Ostrovia, in fact the layout is getting it's first outings in Crewe next Saturday and then Wombourne in October, though a bit far for you! The Px48 is a handbuilt loco by a chap called Paul Windle in plasticard on a Bachmann chassis, he used to do "specials" like this one, though you can now get a 3D printed body of the loco from Shapeways which uses the Farish 8f chassis.

This is the current layout, Ostrovia:
