After a slight delay (no doubt caused by the villainous LSWR and MSWJR) the christmas mail has arrived. Merry christmas and a happy new year everyone!

Seasons Greetings Mikkel -

 

as others have said 'truly inspirational' both in concept and narrative. In particular the narratives are a reminder that the 'real thing' wasn't built to be copied by us,it was built to provide a (profitable) service to the community (something todays Train Operating Companies appear to have lost sight of - I should know, I work in an industry-related field):angry: . Whilst it is difficult to create on what is essentially static scenics, consideration of this element provides an added sense of realism - so evident in your work!

 

Looking forward to similar entries in 2011,

 

Kindest regards

Will: Yes, those moustaches are from the days when a man was a man :D. The longer ones are little peels/shards of whitemetal, which has the advtange that they can be tweaked to shape after being glued on.

 

Ian: Many thanks, you state the intention of the narratives and figures better than I could. That said, I suppose it's all a bit of a balance, as it wouldn't be good if the figures take over too much. I'm a firm believer that there should be some degree of operational interest on layouts (within the necessary limitations of a micro).
