It’s a cold, crisp and frosty December morning as we approach Christmas at Canute Road Quay and the crew on board ex LSWR Adams B4 Class No. 100 try to keep warm whilst shunting on the quay as flurries of snow start to get heavier.
As the festive season and New Year break is upon us, I just wanted to say many thanks to all of you whom have taken the time to read my rambling over the past 12 months. I hope you have found such ramblings interesting and informative. I have also enjoyed corresponding with many of you that have made contact me either directly at shows, email or via the comments field on my various posts. I look forward to corresponding with you again in the New Year.
A further flurry of activity will be taking place at the start of the new year with both Bachmann and Hornby announcing their new ranges within a day of each other on the 7th and 8th January respectfully and I will bring you all the exciting Southern Railway / Southern Region related news on here as soon as their announcements are made.
I once again take this opportunity to thank the various manufacturers, publishers and retailers whom have allowed me privileged access to some of their plans and developments and often taken on board feedback, suggestions and advice, with the sole aim of promoting and furthering modelling of the Southern Railway / Southern Region.
Seasons greetings, whatever your faith or beliefs, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all! Fill up your life with as much love, compassion, tolerance, peace, happiness as you can and hopefully some time for modelling!

Thank you Graham for an interesting blog throughout the year. Your efforts are appreciated and I wish you a Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.
I, too, wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Please keep the nostalgia for all things Southern flowing, it’s much appreciated here near the SECR/LSWR junction in Wokingham.

Hello Graham, May I wish you a very “Happy Christmas” and lovely New Year in 2018. May I also thank you for your posting and information about anything “Southern” and keeping us in the loop. Also may I thank you for spending time speaking to me with your help and advice whilst operating your layout at the model railway shows.
Hi Graham. Have a happy Christmas and get what you want and deserve what you get. My year finishes on a high with my ‘H’ and gate stock and an e-mail from Kernow to say my Bullied is on it’s way. Come on Postman! Thanks for keeping me up to date with the new products.
LIke the snow scene Graham.
Hope you had a good Christmas!
