Not my railway, but one which is inspirational to me.

I like the washed out pale blue paint on the locos. Looks like it was painted 40 years ago and been out in all weathers since. Often wondered how that 'worn thin' look is achieved.

Nice videos and yes it is inspirational, but so is your's Peter. There are a lot of lines out there that all have their own way of giving inspiration to anyone who is willing to look at them with open minds.

Like I say though Peter, you have given me loads of inspiration with your line that excels in lots of ways. I still go back to watching your videos of your line and even photos and I still get loads of ideas from them. :salute:
