    My Precursor Tank has been sitting rather neglected on the shelf for some time now so I oiled her up and she ran perfectly this is something else that I need to finish .As you may have noticed Colin is still at the controls
    It does need a good clean though

    On a warm summers evening at Hackers yard and just about to back onto their train of empties Bill ponders on the busy day that they have had maybe a pint on the way home at the Bullhead Rail . The Crew special tank is fresh from the works and his driver Nick has a soft spot for her they've been together few several years though it's pretty cold in the winter .
    Pint on the way home Bill . You must be a mind reader mate Yep

    image.jpeg Here are a few wagons that I'm working on hoping to have the ready for the scale Severn meeting at Mark in October
    I'd forgotten how tactile 7mm models are quite a joy to build really

    Hi Paul indeed and it is a delightful scale to work in but I also like a lot of modellers have things that I've started and need to be finished the Prcursor for example has a lot of hours put into it and is rather nice
    It would be good to finish it and a couple of other things
    Regards
    John
