Hi Charley

More great models dude !

I have to say; I do like this funky industrial stuff myself.
A good modelling friend I haven't seen for years; likes it even more.

I think he drew the Merced Gold Mine Porter years ago as well.

He told me to visit 'The Amberley Chalk-Pits Museum' in South-England to look at these kinds of locos & cars which they have there.
( some compressed-air, also )

So I did !!!

Somewhere I have a load of realy cool photographs of their loco's, cars & track, I took there.
I'll copy them to digital & post them; you might be interested to see them Charley.
( probably take a few days though )

They filmed a 'James Bond Movie' there.
Can't remember the name of it.
But it was the one with Christopher Walken as the bad-guy.
His hide-out was some kind of old-mine...
...and they filmed the loco's & cars at Amberley.

Where did you get your 1:24 figures Charley.
A particular brand ?
Or DIY modded ?
They look great.
I just have Tamiya car-mechanics at the moment.
They're OK...but yours look 1,000,000 times better !

Cheers

Si.
