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.

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
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.
