Buildings I like, Dorset life, Life, Nature

Portland Bill

Went to Portland Bill today with the good Mrs Driscoll. Very barren – spot the tree! Had lunch in the Lobster Pot, very nice bacon baguette and Cream tea.


Dorset life, Railway

Apple Green T9

As has been mentioned before, the T9 is one of my fav locos which I missed out seeing on the Swanage railway and I was unable to get to the Mid Hants Autumn gala either.

Well I have at last bagged a T9 and an Apple Green one to boot!

Went to the Weymouth model railway exhibition yesterday and they had one running on their O gauge Connaught Road layout


Whether or not the livery is authentic or not I’m not sure but it looks very smart.
