A French Trip


Sunday saw a little French trip taken by self and a trio of Wealden Railway Group bods. Not exactly to France, but some sixty odd miles to the West at Lenham in Kent to the SNCF Society get-together. All very friendly - this isn't really my thing, but like a lot of situations where you step out of the norm, there is much to be gained and new things to interest you. It would have been easy to spend a small fortune on stuff, and I was tempted by some reasonably priced HO diesels, but managed to keep my hands in my pockets. Tricky to pick one thing that stood out, but Peter Smith's 1:32 metre gauge prototypes running on 32mm would be high up. Stunning pieces of work with kit-built O gauge chassis with mostly plasticard bodies, beautifully finished and running to match.
