I really like the theme for this quarter's competition, and have thought about it way too much when I should have been doing other things... Is my favourite train my Welsh Highland goods, with the Baldwin on the front, "Russell" hauling a passenger rake, the new Small England on a Ffestiniog formation, the Regner or one of the battery locos on the slate and other smaller wagons I've been focussing on lately? The simple pleasure of the Faller railbus? Is it like having a favourite child - should I even have a favourite train?!!
In the end, I went with one that isn't at all realistic, or about a particular combination of locos and rolling stock (it's been headed by steam or battery locos and featured a variety of wagons over years), but is always fun and which I always look forward to running - The Plum Train.
This is 2020's train, featuring Russell and mostly Welsh Highland wagons. Planning (OK, daydreaming...) for this year's train is underway, which may well see "Palmerston" rostered, with a rake of slate wagons to carry the fruit...
Anyway, here it is, The Plum Train
