One year on

                             Hi all
                               I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you
                             to the followers of this blog and the people who have left
                             comments and the people that have just come and had
                             a look. With 15,882views (at the time of writing) in just
                             12 months  I'm just blown away. I hope the mix of both
                             HO scale models and full scale photos
                             is as interesting to you as it is to me.
                             and just few of my favorite pics that haven't been
                             posted  before

of photos i decided to give a very weathered look just have 
to put the brake wheel on and touch up the weathering a little
