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

In looking for evidence of the test trains I came across this publicity video. It includes what I presume was the press train. The formation is Cl 91, tourist second open (TSO), first open (FO), restaurant first buffet (RFB), FO, FO, TSO, DVT. It won’t fit on small layouts but it is a great formation to make the rivet counters do a double take.

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.
