Thank you Podhunter for that.

 

I can recall Wyke Regis Halt and a visit to Sandsfoot Castle but most of my time spent and memories are of Portland, the gate stock coaches and attendant O2's.

 

And yes, that is very much a thing small boys did in those days.

 

I hope too that having found Hintock you will visit again.

 

My regards,

Santa Kernow brought me a Christmas surprise.

 

(It was a surprise for I had ordered long ago and forgotten all about them until an email from Santa K told me they were on their way.)

 

And just in time for my Christmas stocking.

 

Happy Christmas!

 

Wow! I bought RM (along with MR and BRM) when I was over in the UK for new year. I loved Port Bredy, which was bay far and away my favourite layout. It inspired me to steal a few good ideas share best practice. The photos also go to answer the question that I asked in another thread on the KMRC gated stock.

 

Thank you!

Truffy, I'm delighted you enjoyed the January RM article (Steve Flint always does me proud) and thank you for that generous commendation.

 

And, always feel free to adopt any of my "best practices"-so nicely put-when you wish.

 

To add also to your pleasure I attach two further images that I hope you will find equally enjoyable.

 

My regards,
