  7. Hi, I noticed the other day on a pic of a class 31, AR above its number, I’m assuming that it stood for Anglia Region as the region it belonged to for infrastructure work? Many class 20s had LMR and yellow flashes above their numbers, but not seem many ARs… also iirc some Class 50s had WR near their numbers? I’m assuming there were ER and ScR examples? And SR? But they seem had to find, unless anyone knows of any examples pr has pics of such locos carrying the flashes/insignia? Tia

  23. Hi, planning a layout, and really stumped on which company to go with for houses, the skaledale range is probably out of me price range for more than a couple, the scalescenes range looks the best IMHO, but seems more involved to build than Metcalfe as you need to stick the pages to your own card. the laser cut buildings look good but are pricier. What are peoples thoughts pn the various ranges? TIA
