            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.

              Great to see these famous locos once more, this time in a nice set also familiar, great combination. The german steamer was news, that I haven't seen before. Several of these pics would be nice in a bigger size so I can print them out and put them on the wall.
               
              Thanks

                Hello Mike
                I would have loved to attend the `Enthusiasts' Open Day' on the
                Crowsnest Tramway. Maybe I could even have brought my own loco? I
                have attended 1:1 Open Days and Feldbahn Treffen where enthusiats
                bring their own locos - primarily Schienenkulis. My only problem
                would be that my locos wouldn't match the quality of yours - and of
                course not fit on the Crowsnest at all as they are 1:35 on 16,5 mm
                gauge!

                Surely you have aquired a massive and good looking fleet of locos.
                I'm very impressed. Shows what determination, networking and some
                finacial management can accomplish. The photos have all been saved on
                my computer to serve as inspiration and raising the bar of my own
                modelling.

                Approaching my 10th year as a 1:35 industrial narrow gauge modeller
                I'm not exactly in a position to compete on neither quality nor
                quantity. How long has it taken you to assemble this collection? Hope
                to hear that it is the result of a life long passion...
