      goodmorning mike great collection ;it is always interesting to see a
      collection of locoes made by some of the best locoes builders in the world
      in one series.the only one that i am not familure with is the lester,where
      did it come from?
      it is always good to see the detail of the crow nest,i had no idear that the
      radius of the turnouts were so tight,it looks that the whole display is
      quite small.
      cheers kim.
