- When i left school back then i was lucky enough to enroll on an engineering apprenticeship. I think this lead me in good stead. I was always one of those children that pulled things apart but actually put them back together again. My first engine given to me at the age of Seven, a Triang Princess Elizabeth. The rest as they say is History. Later in life i got back in to Model Railways and started building Pine Road. This could lead anywhere so i hope you enjoy my Blog.

Rails of Sheffield's new Terrier.
Was it worth the wait ?
I'll say, yeah.
It arrived yesterday (Monday) No 2644 Southern Railway in Dark Olive Green.
What do i think ?
Its a stunning model, loads of detail. I don't have the Hornby version so this is not a comparison. Is it worth the extra 25 ish quid ? well, yes. It runs beautifully after a spot of running in. The firebox flickr, well i like it, this will eventually be sound fitted so that can be made to only operates when you open the firebox door to shovel coal in
The cab detail is all there, all the pipe work, yes its all there. The westinghouse pump is beautifully represented. Wondering if you could by these as spares for other models.
It weighs in at 101 grams but don't let that put you off as its more than capable of pulling a decent length of train.
Two Kitbuilt Roxey Mouldings Carriages, Drovers Brake van, Etch kit with 10g of added lead, Gas tank wagon (white metal kit) Machine truck also a white metal kit, Oil tank wagon yes, a white metal kit and Two bogie bolster wagons which are also of white metal, it didn't even hesitate. I have not got a layout at the moment to fully test this but you get the idea.
Ran out of track unfortunately.
Well that's it, i'm a very happy bunny.
Talking of Bunnies.
