Hi All

 

Added some photo's on my website of our visit to Bressingham Gardens 'Narrow Gauge Show' with 4000 Yards.

 

I have also added 'Exhibition Layouts' to our main captions - this will enable everyone to see the layouts we currently have on the Exhibition Circuit.

We are fully booked for this year and 2020 - so now accepting offers for 2021. See the 'Exhibition'  list as well to see where we are going in 2019/2020.

Hi All 

 

Have just started weathering and detailing after my long layoff after being in Hospital with Pneumonia.

 

All are O Gauge and are for family and friends - two are even mine!

 

It was over two years ago I started my website and after an initial brilliant start - 'hits' have dropped of dramatically from this site when other sites have maintained interest. I do not intend to stop posting here as I enjoy finding information from the BRM family.  So please bear with me.

 

1 Three Box Vans and a Brake Van.

2 Cheap Heljan 05 Shunters

3 Heljan Green 31 

4 Little Loco Class 15

5 Rake of four Accurascale Hoppers

6/ A wagon and a Tram Engine for Quorn.

 

Cheers Kelvin B
