Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

In an attempt to actually understand what I’m building, I rang my mate Slap and asked what he had in his library that would have info on the battery locos of LUL. 

The man is a self confessed LT nut so I had no doubts he’d have something on the subject. Sure enough, he helped out with this gem, hence the title of this post (in case you hadn’t got there yet). 

 I also asked if I could borrow his copy of Rails through the clay as my interest in the tube is growing and it is the tome on the subject. His response was typical, “would you like to borrow the first or second edition?”! 

When he came round yesterday he also brought a further two books on the Underground for my perusal. Not sure when I’m going to read all that but the reading list definitely isn’t empty!

Having now officially reached middle age, 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 to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
