Very impressive.
I think a couple of horses would look good in the grassed area.

Barry, you are far too bl@@dy tidy!
As for the question - horses and a traditional travellers caravan would look good in that space.

It's been a wet old day today, so I have been having a bit of a tidy-up, and also re-arranging things in the stock cupboard. You may recall that I collected loco's before building a layout a few years ago, and working a ten minute walk from Beatties flag-ship store (later to become ModelZone) the collection grew and grew! It also helped that my boss was a French Hornby fan - so it was a surprise at Christmas 2005 when I was presented with this:

This loco joined an LMS Class 5 No.5000 - one of the first, if not the first loco Hornby produced with a DCC Socket:

In 2007 the "boss" presented me with this at Christmas:

A few more loco's that have been sitting in the cupboard for over ten years in some cases.

Where would a collection be without a Flying Scotsman

The Dapol Terrier was a gift from a dear, sadly deceased neighbour. Eric was the south of England Sales representative for Hornby - his "patch" stretched from Margate to Weymouth.

Some lovely locos BB and nice to have a memory of a lost friend in your collection.

Thanks Puddles - I've been most fortunate. BB

I started collecting Hornby Merchant Navy Class loco's when they were introduced in 2000. Hornby also started a NRM Collection producing one loco each year - so I started collecting those - it just grew from there. :)

Barry,

Lovely photos that look so prototypical and a fine collection of steam locos....... almost made me consider if I should introduce steam to Montgreenan, but only almost - LOL

Cheers - Richard

Thanks Mick and Richard - I doubt any of them will be running on Wykeham. There is the odd diesel in the collection. :shock:

Fine collection of named locomotives. That Terrier is an awfully nice piece. The gear ratio is 50:1, demonstrating that
we often like smooth, slow scale speeds, not stuff blasting around the corners on the outside wheels.

Lovely collection of locos.
I especially like the A4. Also interesting to see Flying Scotsman with smoke reflectors.
