Potpourri #1030

I continue to be amazed at the amount of quality content on YouTube.  Railway, that is, but I keep getting diverted by some brilliant music videos, especially from the 1960’s and 70’s, and build videos for plastic kits.  I’m very impressed by the shading and weathering techniques used on aircraft and armour.  I wonder how much could be applied to trains?  And perhaps this is why I’m not getting much modelling done at present, apart from a lot of time spent rereading ‘Lord of the Rings.’

But I digress.  The Golden Arrow was very much part of my childhood, as we lived close to it’s route to the coast….

More overseas trains – on the Isle of Wight….

Adams Radials on the Lyme Regis branch.  Beautiful little locos!

Under the Embankment

And the story behind a famous photograph. (Or the usual ESNG club night running.)  Why put brakes on trains – too much expense all round!

And finally, with no apologies, it is, after all, the Olympics….
