WELCOME

Welcome to my website. I am a keen modeller specialising in what is usually called 'modern image'. By this, I really mean diesel, electric and gas turbine locomotives. So to me, 'modern image' is an odd term, as some of the locomotives I've built pre-date a lot of popular well known steam locomotives! However, there are still plenty of steam engines of all ages running on my layout!

My main aim is to try and build a model of every diesel, electric and gas turbine locomotive to have run on a British railway. Sounds a tall order, but there are a surprising number of models and kits that fit the bill. I prefer the earlier liveries, especially British Railways green, so most models are in this livery (except of course, for those that never carried that livery).

So, have a look through the site and see how I've built them.

 

 

 

HELP!

I have just about built my AM10 (Class 310) EMU and would like to add sound to it. Unfortunately, there isn't a sound chip available for this class (that I know of), so I'm going to have to make my own. To do this, I need to get hold of recordings of these EMU's in action. So, if anyone has any recordings of any AM10 sound, however short, could you please let me know? Hopefully, with enough recordings, however small, I will be able to make up a full sound file. Many thanks.
