I think that your engine is just beautiful, exceptional imagination and engineering ability. Congratulations on a great job. Cheers, Peter.

It will go well on the Mendip 16mm gauge railway layout next week (along with some of your other creations)!

Yes, although I stay at a hotel near Cribbs Causeway (so Madam can spend all the money I have saved since last year!).

Hi Dave,

My wife usually comes with me to the show and visits Cribbs Causeway but this year she is in London for a few days, lesser of two evils?

See you over the weekend.

Regards Tony.
