    That early totem model of 30583 will make a nice contrast to the late one as it'll have a Drummond boiler... :thumbs:

    A trio of Radials, posed for Norman Lockhart by special arrangement at Mutton.Unfortunately he was so excited he forgot to focus..........However, 30582, 583 and 584 do present a nice image all the same.

    A couple of recent views of Mutton as recorded by Norman Lockhart on one of his visits.

    We see Adams Radial 30583 shuffling about with a five plank wagon. No doubt Driver Tommy Cooper and his Fireman Eric Sykes will avail themselves of a well earned cup of tea with Porter Ronnie Barker once they have finished.

    Norman does take a mean snap.

    You could use Arthur Askey to do the underframe shots. :)

    I really like your ground frame hut.

    The 'less is more' approach is what makes your modelling so inspiring. Great stuff.

    Apologies if I'm not keeping up, but when is your next exhibition?

    Thanks Peter.

    It is a chopped about Bachmann ready to plant jobbie. Bottom and steps cut off, windows snipped, chimney added and then painted and weathered with powders.

    Hi Tony. Very kind of you and there are no apologies required.

    Next outing for Mutton is at Yate Feb 2nd (ish?)....followed by a possible appearance at Llantwit Fardre at the end of April, Stafford on June 8th at the Midland Small Layout showcase and a possible at Minehead on August 3rd......

    Bleat Wharf is at the Small Cardiff Show on Jan 28th and at the Rmweb members day in April.....

    Nothing for Sheep Lane next year.......yet...

    Thanks Jim.

    I shall ensure Mutton is suitably presented on the day.
