Firstly today, for ESNG members, I’ve been shopping again…..
Well, it’s a second-hand Z21 DCC set, with wi-fi. Just 6 months old, and spotted by Sean on the NGF emporium at a good price. So, ESNG have invested in a DCC controller for the new fiddle yard – for that day sometime in the future when we can start meeting again.
And once again, a few inspirational photos to keep the modelling juices flowing! Old postcards come up with great pictures.
Havant in 1910.
And West Moors (LSWR) in 1920.
Back to ordinary photos. Alton in 1905
And Micheldever Sidings, just post-war. Even in the 1970’s and 1980’s, there was lots of old and interesting stock parked here, waiting for disposal. Interesting to see the number of wagons still lettered ‘SR’.
Still one of my favourite engines – an ex-LSWR G6 shunter. A very neat Adam’s design.
Finally, here’s an ESNG club night in 1887 (on the LSWR, I think.)
And the ultimate in weathering?
