    Some well and truly exercised artistic flair. A fantastic build with a touch of Xmas. We'll done Sir. All elements covered with the repurposed arches and the carriage " bar " .

    I spotted this this morning, but waited till the lights were on (I can't help being an LED nutter!), who was the dignitary who did the 'turn the lights on'? :avatar:
    Terrific diorama. (I just need to measure up to yours and see if I can make mine xmassy? :facepalm:)

    Now Ian, you can't have Crewe and Derby next to each other with out a wall and the Owd Knotty keeping them apart - or has the goat eaten it.

    Nice one

    Took me awhile to spot the Reingoat Ian, it's well camouflaged :lol:

    How about a bit of snow on the colder bits of the loco, cab roof, coal in the bunker ............................ just a thought, but anyway it looks great and I really like the way you use household items like the frylite tops, bits of sprue and nail varnish to create things in the scene.

    Excellent modelling :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup:

    Thanks Ed :thumbup: .. as for the snow, the loco's just come out of shed so still clean … well that's my theory :scratchchin:
