Ian Sends Update March 21, 2002

Hope all is well where you are. Sorry for not being in contact for a while. I have been busy with my layouts taking them to shows. Taking the US HO layout to a big show this weekend in London. I will send you some photos of this show if I remember my camera.

I have also gained a new web site address for the layouts.

The old one will also still work.

Here is a photo I took last Autumn about 20 miles from where I live in South East England. This lbranchline has an hourly passenger train service operated by these 40 year old diesel units. They are being replaced at the moment. They make a unique sound hence they are nicknamed Thumpers


As promised are a couple of photos of our local station. One photo shows one of the GMs shipped from your side of the Atlantic on a channel tunnel freight train. Normally these go a different route but now and again they get diverted via our station, Redhill.

We have about 4 passenger trains an hour each way to London, 1/2 an hour each way to Reading to the West of London., 2 each way an hour to Tonbridge to the East, and about 6 an hour each way to Gatwick airport, one of the main airports for London.
