    Ah But Toto has a 1200cc motor bike in the shed, rather than a big red bus outside.

    Toto if you get a fridge, you'd better get a natress as well, as I think Lynne & Lulu will kick yer butt out. :avatar:

    Looking good Paul. I've said it before and I'll say it again, "you chaps who build your own locomotives and rolling stock are in a league of your own..." Beautiful work indeed.

    Cheers, Gary.

    Thanks Gary for the kind comment but I really don't see myself as anything other than someone who enjoys what they do. The challenge for me in kit building is a self discipline and not being frightened to make mistakes. :thumbs:

    Ah yes Mr S indeed... the painting stage is the icing on the cake and the weathering will be the cherry on top. This is how 75030 will look when weathered... well probably not that grimy. Now a little known fact is I actually saw this loco at Leek station as a kid on many occasions so I guess all I am doing in my model making is recreating my childhood in some strange way.
