Hi Tom, thanks for the interest, I have three 040 steam shunters,and two diesel shunters, it will be freight only mostly open wagons, I may have to build a few more as I only have around a dozen or so mind you I have been thinking of painting and lettering the sides differently so I can turn them round and it looks like a different wagon, we will see.

Hi Gary, I hope I can live up to your expectations, its going to be a long build, luckily I have got a good start on it, the track is down I have wired it but I need to make sure its ok for DCC as at the moment its a DC layout, I have read some where that all I need to do is switch on all the sections and I am good to go but with my luck I will burn the whole layout down to the ground! Some of the buildings are well on the way but need finishing, I still haven,t decided where the right hand end of the layout is heading I have a few ideas bouncing around in my head.The locos I have are one finished and running with DCC sound, one nearly complete, my Andrew Barclay, a kit for an 0-4-0 Peckett, a Lima diesel shunter I have Anglicised and an old 03 diesel shunter kit I bought then found only half of it was there,I have got some of the parts to scratch build the chassis though so not too bad.

I will try and find a couple of photos of the real Staveley works to give an idea of what I am trying to achieve.

By for now, Pete.        

I found it, honest guv!
