Buy a model train and get a free tour of Eastleigh Works!

REBLOG: From Carl’s Railway Photos  (

I am a big fan of Carl Watsons photography at Eastleigh works and he has recently announced a special offer which would give you the chance to have a tour of Eastleigh Works. From my experience working on 35005 I have found that Eastleigh is a treasure trove and has a wide variety of rolling stock you can up close and see.  These models will be popular so why not order it via and get a free tour of where the real life locos were overhauled.
