Perhaps you would like to see our latest efforts with our analogue OO gauge model railway.
It all started just under two years ago in the model railway wilderness of France.
With lots of thought and little planning mistakes were plenty and we are still seeing where improvements can be made but seem to have run out of room!
The setup would be of most interest to people who “want to watch trains going round” rather than the experts who seek perfection but we have done our best.
Thank you for all the information and videos you have sent, they have been of great use and are a wealth of great ideas.

I thought you and your readers might enjoy some of these. This 80 year old, coal fired J Class (the 611) from the Norfolk and Southern made three runs this weekend between Manassas, Virginia and Front Royal, Virginia (west of Washington DC). I was able to photograph it all six times (outbound and inbound). I do process my images to look for like illustrations. Feel free to distribute any way you wish.
And lastly, here’s something I couldn’t resist.
Rob – who has featured a fair bit on the site – has very kindly sent in the below. So please, please leave a comment below. I’d love to see what Rob comes up with. His last post was stunning.
I have a question for you. I am more than happy to provide custom videos on any subject you think is appropriate. After 5 full time years of modeling, I feel, I have a good bit of knowledge in the subject matter.

Next… another vid. I don’t like to publish two vids on the same post normally, and apols if you’ve seen this before, but it’s new to me and I loved it. Watch the look on the kid’s face when he works out his dad’s the driver:
That’s all this time folks – except one last thing. I’ve finally pulled my finger out and created a store. It took me a while to get my head around it, but here you go – it’s here.
Please let me know what you think about it, good or bad. If there’s more good than bad, I’ll add all the other buildings to it.
