An H0 scale static locomotive.

Back to a slimmed down weekly version of the blog.

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.

Action shot of loco falling off its stand.

Lined up in the station.

The real thing.

Now preserved in France's National Train Museum in Mulhouse.
Currently listening to:

Noel Gallagher on Desert Island Discs
One of his 8 record selections was:

"Voodoo Ray" by A Guy Called Gerald
Currently reading:

On the strength of Levon Helm's book I've ordered 2 DVDs from Amazon.


Saw this film this afternoon at the cinema.

The story of Brian Wilson - pretty good.
