GWR 6435 @ Paignton on Dartmouth Steam Railway


I started modelling railways more than 40 years ago, initially layouts with proprietary stock, but as my passion was for the South Wales Valleys, I struggled for stock and had to build kits or modify items, assisted by my engineering background. During these early days a visit to “Puffers” resulted in an offer to manage the shop, which I accepted. Later with Dave and Nigel we formed “Crownline Models”. This in turn led to me producing kits and building models for clients. After moving house and joining a local club, I ventured into O Gauge and have never looked back. Following a visit to Telford with a friend, Kevin Wilson, a seed was sown which was to lead to us designing and building Bucks Hill. Over the years I have built numerous O gauge kits but now prefer to build locomotives, either steam or diesel and whilst I’m still in love with the “Valleys” my tastes have broadened to cover all regions.
