G scale oddity

On 25.01.2007 I won the bid on e-bay to buy a loco and tender as shown in the first picture, an LGB 91672 tender and an LGB 20040 'snowplow' with both blades although one is not attached, and also a Bachmann Porter body shell. The 'snowplow' was and still is in excellent running order.  Something for the youngsters to play with instead of my other garden locos.

No Trains Today - or are there?

What a surprise when I got up this morning to see my garden covered with snow and the pond frozen solid with a covering of snow.


Thick snow on the tracks all services cancelled until further notice.



G Scale Passengers

I already had some but not enough for the three coaches so I ordered more. 




G Scale Coach Lighting

I have decided to put lights in 3 of my LGB passenger cars or rather ask Robert one of my sons, to do it for me.

Robert explained that it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, certainly once Robert had worked on a 'wiring' diagram I realised just how complex this easy task was…..
