  1. It's always nice when a repair turns out successfully. A visiting King Arthur Class loco suffered an apparent disaster when the crosshead and slidebar assembly came loose and bent the connecting rod at an alarming angle. Fine scale TLC and relocating the dislocated parts seems to have done the trick, and this morning 30737 "King Uther" celebrated a swift return to the rails, hauling 11 coaches with ease, including the SR bogie utility van I bought at yesterday's excellent Crawley club exhibition in Horsham.
  2. There have always been plans for expanding the railway - for the past four years! Meanwhile, David H came round yesterday with some more of his German rolling stock. A 2-10-0 makes light work of this rural passenger service 2-10-0 showing its rear end A pair of 2-6-2s with an express passenger train at Fuchsdale am Rhein Who'd be a banker?! Blossom time in the Rhineland
  3. We then took a quick trip to Germany where we saw this 2-8-2T on a local train somewhere in the Black Forest... After that, it was just Bulleid Bliss, as Ottery St Mary made light work of an 11 coach train: And then Clan Line joined in the fun and we had the delight of double-headed Bulleid power. What a way to spend the afternoon!
