    It seemed like a turntable but I couldn't quite see any rails leading away so it had me wondering. Amazing piece of work.

    The engine absolutely sparkles with the care that it has seen. Obviously a pair of true aficionados who love their job.

    Impressive engine - I hope there are tracks somewhere to get it off the turntable.

    I love mini working steam engines! There are many fanatical fans! You've captured a fun moment.

    Thanks fc.
John: Interesting that you should observe that. I was blown away by the pride every employee had in their railway. I watch others with a shirt and tie on, jump in to help another employee regardless of getting their hands dirty. The guy on the right actually runs the signal box. He obviously knew there were no trains coming in so he went out to help swing the loco around. Later on, he spent a lot of time with us detailing the exact times of record breaking trains all over the UK. It's wonderful to see people who love their work so much.
Jade: It's a turntable. This station is at the end of the line. They could let the loco pull the next train backwards but that would simply not look as good. They can also switch it to a different line to take it into the sheds for maintenance. After they swing it around, they go all over the loco with a rag to make sure it is in pristine condition. I would go back tot he UK simply to spend a day on this railway and spend more time with some of the people there. If you have the fare, you can get to train on and drive a loco.

    Amazing detail in that model but is it really on a track to nowhere or a switch?

    One of the joys of the mini challenge there is no theme so judging is on the “ What I like” or “What appeals to my sense of humour “
Every picture has a story some are disclosed and some not, this doesn’t matter as The Image has meaning to every entry

oh yes one for the steams buffs of which I am one ....
