A visit to the January sales…..
A new Jinty from NGF for a very reasonable price. And some reasonably reduced items from The Model Centre. They are usually expensive, but some good reductions here. Two Bullied coaches, a Southern Railway bogie utility van, a BR 4-wheeled CCT, and two Southern Railway brake vans.
And just out, another Strathwood album of Southern EMUs and locomotives. Once again, some excellent shots, some of rather obscure prototypes. I remain amazed how the Southern Railway, and then Southern Region recycled their EMUs. Bodies from old suburban coaches were modified to form early EMUs, and then, after these were life-expired, the chassis were reused under ‘brand new’ EPB units.
Fortunately, I’ve nearly balanced these purchases with some sales on NGF and elsewhere.
And in those early days of electric units, Strawberry Hill station in perhaps the 1920’s.
And some good modelling potential. The tunnel exit at Southampton.
