Every now and then, it’s worth checking out http://www.locoyard.com and looking through the webpages, as there is plenty of content.  Over 3000 images, 40 web pages and over 580 blog posts with a variety of topics on heritage and model railways can be found.  The blog started life as a model railway diary and to a small extent this remains the case.  Details of the model collection are found here and are ever changing.  The newest locomotive is a D11/1 Improved Director class (see above), a model being tested for a full review in the not too distant future.

As we move into Autumn, there is plenty to look forward to – more model reviews, heritage railway blog posts and not least Movember.  We can announce that there will be a different Movember competition this year – there will be a small prize for a randomly selected entry and in return for this, all entrants will be required to make a small donation to the charity to make it all worthwhile!  Exciting times!
