One of your best yet, but I'm biased. A big fan of the 73's, I was unaware that they had gone North. Your model captures the simple elegance of these machines perfectly. Hats off indeed!

Thanks. I was amazed when I first read about the Caledonian Sleeper rebuilds. As CSL (above) explains, no doubt it makes perfect sense, practically and economically but I still think it’s a terrific story — and they look really good, too.

Superb!
It is, isn't it? How's the painting coming on Bertie?

Nice to hear from you Rob - don't know if you've seen these, but they made me think of you? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Exclusive-Ffes ... 4587609038

Cheers,

Andrew.
Thanks Andrew, I have indeed seen those. There is one proudly adorning my work bag for all of Manchester to see :)
