I have enjoyed seeing others layouts from your emails for years. I have just complete my two level O-scale layout taking about 3 years on and off.
My layout is not a single place and time but more so a collection of memories or places/buildings I really liked.
Over the past three 3 years I have acquired road names engines and rolling stock the ran through Saint Louis, Missouri USA.
not got round to finishing my platforms area yet, but been out and about filming some real steam, looking for ideas as well, but this was up on NYMR yesterday with there Steam Gala ..though some of the members would enjoy it.
I know what Dave means – sometime it’s a nice change to look at some real steam. I get sent all sorts. Here’s one from Desmond:
I’m a long time subscriber first time poster, I was recently in British Columbia and had the pleasure of taking a short trip on board the spirit of Kamloops whilst there.
I’m attaching a few pics that I took it was a beautifully restored engine and the last 2141 in her class.
It had been converted from a coal fired boiler to an oil fired during her working life. I think this was to help reduce the amount of forest fires that the area was prone to.
Please do leave a comment below on whether you’d like to see more of what lands in my inbox.
That’s all for this time folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
