Happy New Year from the Kennel





As we build up steam and head into a new year, I’d like to wish all my friends, family and followers the happiest of new years. 

A new year is also a good moment to take stock of your modelling efforts for the year and entertain some thoughts about projects for the 12 months ahead.

I’m mulling a few ideas around at the moment and although I’ll go over these in finer detail in a subsequent post, I’m thinking along the lines of bashing a couple of Hornby Gresleys into variants more suitable for 1950s Waverley Route services.

Additionally, I want to make some progress on a scenic display using the Bachmann engine shed elements, complete my long-stalled D30 and get busy with y recently acquired NB Models N15 tank.

In the meantime, enjoy the night if you’re staying up. I’m enjoying a nice Auchentoshan then hitting the sack so I can make the most of tomorrow!

If the weather bucks recent trends I may have a trip up to Whitrope, one of a number over the next week or so as the 44th anniversary of the Waverley’s long sleep approaches. This year will have a special air about as it as we ponder the return of a wee train and the promise of a big train to the north of us in the next two years. The future bids well in that respect.

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!
