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.
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.
