Put a few coaches away today so we could try out some trucks. Also discovered my bridge camera is better than my SLR for video of the model.

In November I visited the Warley Model Railway Exhibition at the NEC. It was very good but suffered from being overcrowded. However I did see a few nice layouts and picked up a couple of ideas for home use. I also picked up a fairborn tank for a Christmas present to me, but had to give it up when I got home until Christmas. Since the it has been out on my own layout seen in the bottom picture below.
Here is the Fairburn Tank on my Layout at home, apologies for the dodgy picture quality, I'm still learning how to use the new camera.
Well Christmas came and went and with it a Fairburn Tank Loco (see next blog) purchased at Warley Model Railway Show in November. I also has some money off Mum. I wanted a 'Black 5' and after a few searches I found one in a set with three pullman coaches.
Much searching on the internet finally revealed that The Model Railway Loft has the best priced version of this and furthermore would fit a DCC chip free of charge if I bought it from them. They were very efficient, I ordered it on Saturday and by Wednesday it had arrived, all in one piece and well packaged, I shall have to watch them for bargains in the future.
I have extended my storage shelf slightly so I can keep this model on the shelf in my Study when the railway is away.
