  1. eve4m – I've loved British railways ever since I was a small child, when my parents back garden faced the South Staffs line at Pelsall. I'm not a trainspotter, but I love railway history, and modelling. I have been and done many things in my life, but during the past 4 years I have undergone the biggest change in my life and have transitioned from male to female, however model railways have stayed with me. Dolls houses never got a look in! If you are offended or transphobic, please feel free to look elsewhere.........

    Hi Graham, nice looking model, but looks as if she’ll have some difficulty with stopping, hope that they service the brakes! perhaps with some PDK or mainly trains items? 🙂

    1. grahammuz – A railway modeller with a keen insterest in all things Southern Railway especially the 1946 to 1949 period. 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 am also long time member of the High Wycombe and District Model Railway Society

      Colin kindly wrote “The S15 looks very nice but even more delightful is your modelling period permitting such delights as the K10 hiding behind!

      Glad to learn your father is still around – happy returns!

      During a conversation with mine (he’d reached 97) he started recalling the Brighton’s elevated electrics at Crystal Palace ‘with a great big bow collector on the roof’. Interested to learn why he’d never mentioned these previously, his reply was ‘before today you’d just never asked me about them’…”

      1. Graham,

        Thank you – well, it is a computer system!

        For the benefit of others I see Hattons have reduced their Hornby S15 locomotives with some priced at £99.

        In 1936/37 nos.833 to 837 received 6w ex.N15 tenders. Later in 1962/63 30833, 30837 and 30847 all received ex-Schools slope-sided tenders.

        Kind regards, Colin
