I was sent this a few days ago. It really is incredible - finding this sort of colour footage of the 1950s is rare enough, but this from the 20s showing a period which many modellers still represent is fantastic.

I have to say that it is not only a delightful study in wiggly tin, but also a throw-back to a time when filling stations sold tyres and blokey stuff, not tall lattes and creme eggs. I think it has a certain Ahearn feel about it, which, being that it's not too far from Romsey, is not far from a likely connection.
At the end of the weekend we waved Unnycoombe off into the back of a VW Golf headed for Farnham with it's new owner. I hope he's happy with his new acquisition.
If people will insist on colluding to send flowers on people's birthdays to a model railway exhibition then they can only expect the consequences.

It's easy to forget how long this kit has been around as I still think of it as new. But then I remember that I wrote a review of it in 009 News in the late 90s so not that new after all.
