DORIS AND HER TRUCKS
OO9 train ready for service at Maudetown
With a few hours to spare, my little narrow gauge train is complete and ready to be packed up for transport to the NEC tomorrow - it'll be on display at the Model Rail stand (B7).
The loco still lacks a pair of steam whistles and it also needs a pair of couplings, but I'm hoping to pick up these missing bits at the Warley show. As for the rolling stock, the open wagon has received a load of pit props (cut from wood kebab sticks) and I'm looking out for a few other OO9 scale kits to complete the train. At the very least, I could do with some sort of brake van and, perhaps, some side-tipping wagons. Hopefully Parkside Dundas will have something suitable on their stand.
Anyway, I'd better pack my bags ready for tomorrow... maybe see you there?
