Bachmann Class 121 at Spalding

Today at the Spalding show the EP for Bachmann’s BR class 121 is on display. Due in about 12 months time it’ll be worth the wait. Underframe details look exceptional including the speedometer drive from bogie to chassis. The internal seating etc look full depth and better defined than Dapol’s 121/122, and that’s far from a bad model. Later variants with different buffers etc are also planned. At a similar price to the Dapol version it could be a tough choice!

#justdoit the colours of autumn

It’s probably no great secret to long term readers of the blog that I like the Autumn or Fall season. I’m lucky in my occupation gives me time out and availability to capture and enjoy the seasons that perhaps nine to fiver’s don’t get. Shelfie2 is underway and I’m hoping to build on trials I’ve previously done to capture the subtlety of the Autumn season of the UK. Just occasionally we get those wow!, moments, and this morning I was able to spend a couple of hours just capturing the light and enjoying the serenity of a beautiful October sunrise. There’s no filters here, what you see, is what I got.

The location? Clumber Park, Nottinghamshire.

Don’t miss these opportunities, sometimes capturing life’s more important than toy trains!

Just do it!
