I’m a 30 year old who wishes he was 10 years old and was train spotting in the 1950’s. I enjoy most things about Steam and Railways of the UK up to the mid 1960s. Up until recently I had been very much an LNER enthusiast with the railways around York, the North and East Ridings being of most interest. 18 months ago, I went full change and now model the ex Great Western Railway in North Wales.
As I’m originally from the North West of England, I have a passing fondness for ex LMS locomotives and the lines around Preston, Blackpool and the North Wales Coast.
I love modelling steam and my main area of work is weathering locos. I’m also moving to modifying RTR (Ready to Run locomotives) and into the realms of Kit Building.
When I’m not modelling….I’m earning a living teaching violin in schools across North Yorkshire.
