The short coaches are really putting your steamers "in period". Keep up the good work, doesn't matter how long it takes, if you are enjoying it the longer it takes, the more enjoyment.

There is something 'Happy' about the scenes you create.
Always a pleasure to look in.

Thanks, Geoff. I try to do little scenes of life with a train passing by. :)

Thank you, Bufferstop for your kind words. The little Hornby four wheelers were handy for the grandchildren to handle. Now they prefer the running of diesels I am left with the steam locomotives. Changing the carriages to the generic 4-6 wheelers has made a difference. Now I am taking it easy just running trains and doing a little modelling now and again. :D

Looking at the photographs and the time period they relate to, it comes across very well with the actual effect of the photographs.

As a supporter of Medway Queen Preservation Society, two new wagons they have had produced to raise funds, have arrived. Seen here at Clarence Dock.

Saw this building in my local model shop. Purchase made and will be placed in a new street scene I am in the process of building.

Seeing 'Gillingham' printed on the sides of those wagons brings back happy memories of time spent visiting my sister when she lived there. :)

Thank you manna. I am discarding a few old (worn and damaged) buildings. They have served me well, but now a little upgrading is being done.

'Harwood' about to do a little shunting. The platform at the rear was built for the Goods Yard workmen; now the local people use it bringing extra revenue to the Company.
