I delivered 6 coaches the other day and took some pictures of them running on his layout.

He has very kindly given me permission to post them on this forum with the condition that i appeal to you all for pictures of the LT&S loco's that are pulling the train. pictures are extreamly rare and if you have any information at all it would be a great help.

The layout is mainly london underground based with tube stock and overground stock running on a double track mainline. with the option of going off onto a T shaped extension. each sie of the T being about 30 feet.

I made the bodyshells and the bogies for the carriages and painted the shells.

The coaches look good Peter, and the layout looks interesting. I have some stuff on the LT&SR but it would help if I knew what class of locomotive we are talking about.

Oh and congratulations on your elevation to the "peerage"

Excellent - I can't make any promises though.

As a slight deviation and reading friends layout as another exhibitors layout I spent a little time playing, and I mean Playing, with Great Awdry on Sunday afternoon. Were you aware it is alive and well and living in Broadstairs? It is a fun layout to watch, although I think that running a Bigboy pulling 7 Pullmans was just a tadge silly. Excellent fun.

WOW

I popped to gloucester for Rod pickering funeral and it was sat in the middle of the new layout dissassembled. it was looking in a bit of a state and covered with cobwebs.

I spend many happy hours in my youth playing with that layout. i ran literally evrything on it from LNER to my first kit built loco to american diesels buy the dozen. its so wonderfully simple.

I am so very glad it has found a good home.

I never saw a big boy going round but a centennial with a load of doublestacks was a regular sight!!

A dear old friend of mind built the thatched buildings for the layout and also did some for pendon. The revd awdry actually died the day i joined the gloucester club but i saw him many times at the enhibitions at elmscroft.

Some of my fondest memories of my childhood were running burt hawkins's LNER rolling stock around that layout. thunder in 4mm. fantastic. none of the clubs i have attended since -even the MRC have come close to that.

Regards

Peter

Well if you're ever down this way I'll have to see if I can arrange for a quick reunion.
