As some of you may know I have a penchant for O gauge. One layout that caught my eye at Northolt was Penpoll Quay and Southern/Western region layout in the China clay area of the South west. A lovely Beattie Well tank was running along with a GW Pannier. Very nicely modelled and I particularly liked the Cameo scene.

Today had the honour of being able to operate Phil Hutchings, Addison Park at Northolt show. Addison Park is a 3mm scale layout of the London Underground system in the 1950’s. The layout drew a lot of interest from the public who also showed a wide knowledge/memories of LT as it use to be and the type of stock used on different tune lines. Although of simple design, the layout requires a fair bit of concentration to operate. A good day was had by Mr P and myself and thanks to Phil for the privilege of being able to operate the layout.

As he says not half as much fun!
