Autumn in Happisburgh

We’ve had Alan West’s BTH Class 15 diesel running on Happisburgh Goods for some time. It was constructed from a kit many years ago, but it never looked or ran very well. However, after extensive rebuilding of the mechanism and bogies by the late Peter Elmslie, it at least ran well, and with some very heavy weathering applied by your scribe, this at least hid some of the many imperfections.

However, Bob Smith caught a glimpse of the forthcoming Little Loco Company’s model of the same class at Telford, while it was on display on 82G. He is now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the postman so he can get his hands on this lovely new model. Hopefully this will be seen running on Happisburgh Goods in the near future.

Speaking of which, we are taking Happisburgh Goods to The Garden of England Modelfest at Knockolt, Kent on 10th & 11th December. Then in the New Year to the Canterbury Model Railway Exhibition on 21st & 22nd January, quickly followed a week later by the Longfield Model Railway Exhibition on 28th & 29th January.
