In another life where loco s are overhauled we aren't Rail connected just like the picture previous
So this is how after years of toil undercover we move them back to the 4'. 8 1/2"

Nice choice - a real southern loco :clap::clap::clap:

One slight hitch - the interest free loan for restoration came from Tarmac - later renamed Carillion :devil::devil:

One really useful 64 litre box containing an Rhb Re4/4 and a few big vans lying next to a lawn mower box with 4 Rhb coaches and a luggage van.

Its tough when your trains are packed away.

From the big and powerful to a little goose keeping a railway alive. Goose courtesy of Mike beavercreek quite some time ago, handcart from e-bay and hopper from Top Slots yesterday!

What's my kind of train ? Pretty much anything with steel wheels riding on rails.

Hi Tim
It's YP based on a Bachmann Annie chassis for most of the runnning gear
The boiler/cab/superstructure is of my own concoction using mainly plasticard, some sheet metal and part of an old plans tube as the start point for the boiler
I think main line Indian metre gauge steam offers a whole mine of opportunities !
At the moment I've a MAWD 2-8-2 I'm working on

Ps the picture here / above is of an Indian G2 class built a while back on another Annie chassis
