When on holiday in France recently I bought this plastic static model of a Pacific Chapelon Nord from a stallholder at a Vide Grenier (boot sale) for 7 euros. 90 seconds later I saw the same item on sale for 5 euros and it was in a box!
Static models are quite good for populating railway layouts.

|The real thing.|
|Now preserved in France's National Train Museum in Mulhouse.|
Currently listening to:
|Noel Gallagher on Desert Island Discs|
|"Voodoo Ray" by A Guy Called Gerald|
Saw this film this afternoon at the cinema.
|The story of Brian Wilson - pretty good.|
