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

A nice day out

Yesterday the Mini Mes and I went to the York model railway show, possibly the worst advertised show for the general public I know about (no local advertising at all). 

However, as usual, once inside it was an excellent do. Highlight for me was seeing Overlord, a layout I’ve always wanted to see. I particularly liked the Doodlebug overhead. 

It was the second time I’ve seen the Gresley Beat and has certainly come on a lot since last time I saw it – seeing a 100 wagon freight train is impressive in 4mm scale, not just the sight but you can almost add up the cost of it as it goes past! 

Stafford Railway Circle’s Whiteacres was also very impressive, showing what can be done with DCC. 

Below are a selection of photos.

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.
