I must say that the steam shovel, in common with the rest of the model looks very effective, and yes, sometimes it is possible to get away with using models, features etc. intended for use in OO/HO in N (or vice versa) and get away with it!

Sourced a box from hobbycraft. Slight scare when I thought I'd bought the wrong size.
Official entry photos will be sorted this week

Then maybe I'll start a second one!

My cakebox Rokeby was seen by Angela Leadsom (Leader of the House) when it was at the Roade cutting event

Should have asked her about how to win a vote ……
