Picture of the Month – July 2017

This months picture…

Bulleid Merchant Navy class 21C14 ‘Nederland Line’ built from a Millholme kit, heads to London with the up Devon Belle having taken over the train at Wilton. Adams O2 built from a Wills kit, shunts the ash wagon on shed. My Grandfather, a Ganger, can be seen taking a break leaning on his ballast fork near the platelayers hut.

  1. I will try to get to Exeter but other commitments may prevent.
    Nice pic of MC and O2. But side by side which are the better models – the Millholme and Wills or Hornby and Kernow? And the better runners?
    I still enjoy my G6 (Finecast?) but it is on borrowed time if a rtr appears!

I can often be seen on the exhibition circuit with my Layout Fisherton Sarum or assiting MIke Wild the Editor of Hornby Magazine with his layouts at shows.

      I have to say that the modern RTR are generally better models, the running qualities of my kit built models do vary so some are better than RTR and visa versa
