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

Doing a model engineer 

Leave a comment

On a fairly frequent basis I am asked how I’m getting on with my Hawksworth Pacific. I’m not is the short answer. And I haven’t got a great excuse apart from saying that I see it as one of my biggest challenges and biggest projects I want to get right so doing it when I’m constantly knackered from current life isn’t ideal. 

However, I haven’t been totally idle. When I did have some time a couple of months back I emailed 247 Developments and asked for a set of plates to be made. 

They arrived today. And I’m not disappointed. They are fabulous.

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.
