As you might imagine, the various layout projects I am building are photographed on a fairly regular basis. A project for the Bachmann Collectors Club Magazine sees ‘Dudley Heath’ under the spots once again…an excuse to run trains too. Two Class 150s pass each other on the main line. They are straight-from-the-box Graham Farish. I have plans to buy a couple more and introduce some of the variations (together with Centro livery) that existed in the Central Trains Class 150 fleet.
From time to time , I have opportunity to photograph something really special. ‘Rhyd’ by David John is one such example: Narrow gauge inspired by the Ffestiniog Railway and built using many of the layout design concepts floated by Iain Rice over the years. Rhyd is 2ft narrow gauge modelled to 7mm scale. A sequence of pictures were taken for a magazine; such photography being a growing area of my magazine portfolio (sounds posh!?!) This single image says it all – a real pleasure to watch and photograph.
