I did however, find the need to clean the layout up a little as my dad picked up a Hornby P2 with sound. It's not quite the south coast of New South Wales but the Cock o' the North looked great with a string of LNER coaches behind it.
The following week I received delivery of a couple 86 class locos. Fortunately the layout had already been dusted off.
I've always liked electric locos. Having grown up in the northern suburbs they were what I saw everyday on anything from interurban services to Gosford, the Newcastle Flyer and the the various country trains such as the Brisbane Limited and that's not to mention the endless goods trains which they hauled.
New arrivals to the layout.
These two are a little out of my brown era but they were a great looking loco and they are great looking models.
On the real railway, we had a couple of railmotor tours go through on the weekend. I took these in the morning.
