Chronicling the development of my 5-gauge 4mm scale model railway with a few off-topic insights thrown in for free

That can’t be real

if you saw this on a model railway you would naturally assume that either the modeller was bone idle or had run out of weathering paint. 

They do say truth is stranger than fiction and so’s the case here. This is a comparison of platform roads 8 and 9 in Leeds. 9, like most of the through roads at Leeds are primarily used by DMUs and show the evidence. 8 tends to be one of the 2 platforms reserved for the London service which is invariably (but not always) the electric Class 91 and Mk4s. The result is quite striking and would make an interesting talking point on a model.

Now in my fourth decade, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
