Next show will be in March the OnTrax show in Utrecht. This show will held in the Dutch National Railway Museum. We will set up the Tripton by the Sea railway and operate for 3 days. 

Next project is to build the 2-4-0 GWR Stella class complete with inside motion.
This engine is complicated because the double frame construction and outside cranks for the coupling rods. The scale seven group supplied longer axles to fit in the frame. It will be a nice engine.
