Recently infected by narrow gauge US train after a trip on Durango and Silverton RR (2105), I built (quite) from scratch, from Bachman parts and blue prints made from pictures or master class.
They are made to run on a garden track for the litlle (and older) child.

An other one is waiting on the "factory yard": a 1/20 Mason Bogie - quite difficult and with a lot of improvisation: the motor is from a Bachman 030.

bienvenue!
your english is ok (for me, as a non Brit)
and your pictures are perfectly understandably - just to few...
a really cool loco you made there!

Ah, if only more of the British were as fluent in English as foreigners.

I was not fishing for compliments, I'am very confused. it's too much.

Some of you want more pictures of the 460 : she was made during the fisrt self containment in France, just with things in the boxes or available by internet.

Many thanks to the huge documentation on internet and to whose who publish their realisation for the pleasure of all.

The project at the very beginning: we had been scared by the ideas of bear during our journey in the NP of USA.

Bell, stack, lantern, air compressor, electric generator and her tender with a dog house: all these for a 1870's NG wood burning loco on a poor forest line.
