As you may have guessed, I am new here!

I'm James and I'm from near Beverley in Yorkshire. I've been interested in railways for as long as I can remember - caught the interest off my dad! He has a lot to answer for now! My main railway interests are the recent past (what I see/saw when out spotting), NE region in the fifties and sixties, end of BR steam, as well as Diesels in general - with a bit of narrow gauge thrown in for good measure! I've been building models professionally since I was 16.

I'm a member of variuous societies;

- Scalefour Society
- Model Bus Federation
- 009 Society
- British Trolleybus Society

My other interests are cricket, coaching junior/youth cricket, cars (my Rover 620ti in particular), buses, model buses and, of course, the beautiful and very tolerent Suzi!

Some examples of my of what I get up to -

Much modified Class 40 in P4-

Rebuilt class 56 -

A rebuilt Class 37 - won its class at Scaleforum 2005 -

Rebuilt Heljan 47 with scratchbuilt underframe -

Not finished yet, an on going project!

And finally for now, a 37/6 converted from a 37/0

Thank you for the warm welcome!

There's nothing wrong with diesels!

If you're good I might post some pictures of alternately powered motive power!
