    1960s and 1970s diesel & electric scene, especially hydraulics. Also very fond of Southern Region steam and electrics from the 1940s to the end of steam.

    Aside from railways, music from the 1960s and 1970s and classic cars.

Likewise would be using the same chassis I suspect for a Loch in the same way. On another tack

  5. Sorry guys I am sure I am not alone in wanting to see how you are both progressing with your wee Bens as I am still thinking towards building/bodging a few and have looked towards some butchery (my basic modelling) towards some concoctions from Hornby Adams Radials T9/700 tenders and bits and bobs from Dave Ellis at Wills Finecast, all in the style of and not getting too stressed about a couple of millimetres out here and there. Likewise towards building a Loch as one or two others have given them a go on RM Web with some success. I also wondered if any other RTR locomotives might

Meanwhile, we should have several more titles in the Strathwood & Irwell ranges in time for Santa's sleigh for release in around four weeks time. In the interi
