Afternoon all and Happy Easter ;) 
Had last week off work and a short trip to BCN with my sketchbook and a couple of cold beers in the sun meant progress and next moves were hatched :sungum: 
It was brought to my attention that the MRJ were running a small cameo layout competition and upon purchase of said magazine and a couple of read throughs...

Evening peeps, 
Following hints in the last post that I was going to make some alterations and having got the week off for 1/2 term to thin out the garage it was natural that a suitable slot would be allocated to do some modelling. Still brimming with 2mmFS mojo after the AGM and the news that the Dapol 08 has slipped again meant an opportunity to re...

That said, sketches still prevail in my sketchbook during journeys to work or en route to meetings.

A number of comments were received which questioned the small letterbox to the train shed...my youngest son w...

Afternoon all,

Many thanks for the interest shown in this new project - I would also like to mention that Richard (Ben Alder) has been very kind in helping me with research and information for this. Richard as you probably know has already built a fab model of Thurso (and Kyle!) in 4mm which covers much more than my extract will - Worry not, Richard...I...

off...but not yet running...

Good evening,

Here's a welcome to my new project which I eluded to on my recent Kyle blog entry. I say new, but actually it's an idea that first surfaced in 2009 whilst I was building Kyle in a box file. It was based upon building a similiar small extract from the prototype but centred on Thurso with the idea it could be attached to the other end of the...
