Wetting Your Appetite

Slightly less modelling of late; although I did manage to get a Shapeways order off for the elements of the loading crane, signals and water column and I hope to do the same with an order for etchings tomorrow.

With Christmas coming up, we have done a little travelling done to visit people and we popped down to see the old man on Saturday.  He has now had all of the proofs for his next book back and they look very good.  Those of you who have seen his previous books will know that there are lots of photographs, drawings and text; laid out in a logical and easy to use fashion.  They are designed to be books for modellers and I think they succeed.

So this is what it looks like; the expectation remains that it will be launched at the Glasgow show in February and judging by the proofs things are on target for this:

Carriages and Wagons

The reason we are cracking on with doing the family is that we will not be here for the Christmas and New Year; we are off to somewhere exciting; where the trains look like this…………………….

Midland-line-Cass-Bank-1

and go through scenery like this………..

Midland-line-Waimakariri-river

So no more posts until the new year………………………

Merry Christmas!
