    Sorry I'm late - we are only being allowed to come forwards from the Back of the Class one at a time to view this, so we don't drool on it too much...:oops:

    ... and there-in lies the challenge! :confused:
    This sort of standard here isn't just high - it's utterly fantastic. :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

    The photographs are good.

    The only Monks Eleigh I know is in Suffolk (I used to live in the village of Offton not to far away). Has the owner based the layout on an imaginary line between Sudbury and Stowmarket? I'm only asking the dumb question as I have not read any of the magazine articles referred to earlier.

    Dave I don't think you'd be a million miles off the mark, in fact probably within millimetres...

    Hang on, chaps! This is my thread for photos of Monks Eleigh. I don't mind a bit of the old SBB, but if you wish to discuss the merits of steam coal, may I respectfully ask you do it elsewhere? Ta. ;)

    Yes sorry Heather:oops::D, can the Mod's please put my loco posts on to my workbench thread, thanks:thumbs:

    I would have thought that as the loco is for Monks Eleigh then the discussion was relevant but its your ball and if you want to take it home so no one else can play that's up to you.

    I've moved what I think the relevant ones are to their own thread "J68 for Monks Eleigh". I hope this is ok with everyone, moving the ball to a different corner of the playground rather than taking it home so the footballers aren't running over the hopscotch grid.

    It is a relevant loco, but not in this thread. This was a gallery thread for the layout. I just felt there were better places for Colin's excellent work. :)

    Morning Heather.

    Were there any other photos in relation to this lovely layout?

    Sadly not, Rob. I always intended to try and make a return visit to Monks Eleigh. Time moved on rapidly, Mike is no longer with us, and I don’t know what happened to the layout or stock.

    Oh dear. Primarily, I'm sorry to hear of Mike's passing but the possible fate of the layout and stock is saddening
