Uptown with the girls on Hogmanay morning- church,coffee and then a wee look about. I popped to the model shop for some static grass. I did buy the static grass and then came away with this too-
The Edinburgh connection was too much and I succumbed to temptation. I have been reading around the model railway hobby for some time through magazines and books.This is my first purchase of anything more.


  1. Oh ! dangerous ! , have thought about model railways in the past (I come from a railway family) and resisted so far , Tony

  2. For just a few seconds I thought you'd bought a horny train. Oddly I was recently looking at pictures of Hornby tractors in the early 20thC. Real ones.
    But toy/model trains are good! Pity its not O gauge but should still be fun.

    All the best for the New Year.

  3. The start of a long slippery slope! That's how it starts, a circle of track on the table. Welcome.

  4. Good on You Alan - looks very Caladonian - Hornby OO are excellent products - you won't be disappointed. 4mm/ft Scale on 16.6mm Track - excellent. Have fun! KEV.

  5. As long as you work trains into your games somehow!
