Hi John

Nice linkeys !

The first is 'the classic pic'...
...the one I know anyhow.

Thanks for the 2nd one...
...NEVER seen that one before.

Interesting to see the side-view.

I dunno what they thought they were gonna do with it; if half the German army came floating across the English Channel.

But I guess it made 'patroling' the coast a bit easier (maybe).

I believe the RH&DR was 'double track' all the way to Dungeness before WWII...
...when they ripped up the rails for scrap-iron...
...and never relaid it to this day.

An AMAZING and 'different' to 'most' Brit NG railways...
...I've never seen it modelled though...
...bet someone's had a bash at a bit in Gn15 though...
...or maybe OO etc.

I wanna go look now !

Cheers oxtrains

PS
My favorite 'armoured'ish (military) trains...
...I think, are from Sam Peckinpah's movie 'The Wild Bunch'.

Mexican revolution era.
One gets robbed (US Army one)
&
The other is the 'mobile HQ of the Mexican General.

Great train stuff on 'The Wild Bunch'

( standard gauge though folks ! )


PPSS
Dallas...
...I was admiring your US Army car on the 'no switch' micro-diorama...
...N I C E...
You must have a 'thing' for a military train or two ?
