Happy New Year!

Well here, we are. 2013 has at last been consigned to the dustbin of history and a brand new year lies before us.
2014 has potential to be a truly historic year and one of great opportunity. I hope it lives up to what I and countless others hope it will.
Meantime, some low-level activity in the shed has been taking place as I try to repeat my fluky success with the 12 ton hopper.
So far, so good!

Additionally, I’ve been having a go at enhancing the Hornby Blue Spot fish van.

Finally, alongside the 16 tonner, this old coke wagon is undergoing the same sort of treatment.

Well it’s not a bad start!

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!
