The Move from OO to O Gauge

To show my commitment to move from OO to O Gauge here is a photo of the same Class 26 Loco in both gauges.

I spent most of yesterday adding the full yellow front on the O gauge Model, hand brushed two undercoats and four topcoats. The model was then detailed and numbered as D5335, the only Loco I can find in this Class  with a warning panel like this.

After finishing I put the OO Class 26 on Ebay. Here are some photo’s of the Loco’s for the one and only time!!!!

Copsey debuts at Sudbury Charity Event – Blue Era

Here is our second Era at the Sudbury Charity Event – Stock and some road vehicles changed from the ‘Anglia 2004’ running session.

I hope both sets of photo’s show how a very simple layout with only two ‘Insulfrog’ 3 way points can be used to run varied and interesting stock.

Copsey debuts at Sudbury Charity Event – Anglia 2004

On Sunday we attended the Acton Model Railway Exhibition, near Sudbury Suffolk. It was a charity show we attended for no expenses, have to say what a lovely little Show and so pleased we attended.

As this was the first Exhibition for Copsey, it was a nice gentle introduction. Before we went we had decided to run two era’s over the six hour Show, two by three hour sessions. Note – the Class 47’s are super detailed and re-worked Lima Loco’s with Ultra-scale wheels.

I will post the two sessions separately – so here is ‘Anglia 2004’
