About the blog

My simple philosophy is to be a modeller of railways there needs to be a model railway. It doesn't matter if it is a loft or an Ikea box, there has to be a railway, otherwise we are mere collectors of things in boxes.

D15 at speed

D15 463 as rebuilt by Robert Urie at speed on a down West of England express.

The painting is by railway painter and author. Cuthbert (Chip) Hamilton Ellis FRSA (29 June 1909 – 29 June 1987) was an English railway writer and painter. He was an Associate of the Institution of Locomotive Engineers and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. 

His book 'The London and South Western Railway' was my first proper railway book and its influence is still strong.
