    This is my Heljan 61xx. She is fitted with Youchoos sound and has had quite a lot of improvements made to her.

    Is it just me, or when others click on the images to enlarge, does it go to something called postimage?

    I am too getting directed to postimage, and that is from my IPad.

    It is the hosting site I use. I did not want to post full size images because of the space they take up.

    John :)

    I will change them.

    John,
    There's no limit on the image size but you can only post a maximum of 15 images/ post.
    Cheers,

    Hi - thanks for posting - don't worry about the photo size. The forum software is very efficient and we have plenty of hosting space for photos.

    Hi John.

    In view of your first photo on this thread I thought you might like this of the prototype. Taken by me at Southall, where it was the shed "pet" for a while, hence the relatively clean condition, on 2nd May 1965. My personal copyright.

    If you could see the clock you could add the time 12.25 pm ? (judging by the short shadows).

    Nice colours - Ektachrome or Agfachrome? as the photo doesn't appear to have the Kodachrome blue cast.

    Actually Kodacolor II negative. Most of my shots were on neg as it was much more tolerant of exposure variations than any of the reversal films.

    I used reversal films, usually Kodachrome, for holiday snaps and such.

    I think the Masterpiece prairie looks better for removing the rather crude attempt at the brass cab front window frames. They come out easily. I’m mulling over whether to replace the whole cab front sheet with a spare Mitchell one, as the prominent plated over portholes as modelled were very rare.

    Not sure how rare plated over portholes are on the straight/shorter boiler version but 4566 certainly has them.
