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 very many thanks to all of you whom have taken the time to read this blog over the past 12 months. I hope you have found such ramblings interesting and informative.
I have always 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.
My outings with either Canute Road Quay or Fisherton Sarum planned for 2020 and beyond can be found on my Exhibition Diary page here. I also thank those friends and family whom have assisted me exhibiting / playing with my train sets during 2019.
A further flurry of activity will be taking place at the start of the new year with both Hornby (January 6th) and Bachmann (February 5th) announcing their new ranges and I will bring you all the 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!

Fortunately you are modelling circa 1949 for seven decades later it could be flooding (which would play havoc with Canute Road’s electrics)….
Thank for both the entertainment and modelling new across the past year; it really is appreciated.
Compliments of the season to you and all!
As always I enjoy these little glimpses of beautifully executed layouts. Thanks for encouraging my Southern interest (2 versions of D Class on order!). Merry Christmas and a healthy and productive 2020 to you and your readers.
My I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you also for your efforts in providing us all with regular updates, reviews and information on all things SOUTHERN It is very much appreciated.
Merry Christmas Muz, I look forward to more travels later in the year!
