 Narrow Gauge

Since the 1980's I have had Narrow Gauge stock from Bemo (HOm) and Lilliput (HOe). The HOe is of the WaldenburgerBahn and is 2 locos; No 5 G. Thommen and the Eurovapeur 0-6-2 with the correct coaches. There is also an articulated steam Tram (Prototype unknown)  possibly Eggerbahn.

  The Bemo stock is Furka-Oberalp and Rhatische Bahn. While there won't be room for the HOm stuff, I am planning on putting a 2' X 4' board (61 x 122 cm) to the right of Bonham / LeoStadt with a feed link to Bustham / Jessdorf. Plans are yet to be finalised and it will have to wait until the standard gauge is completed .

 Standard Gauge

Amongst my non-European stock, I have from the 1960’s 3 Triang models from their Transcontinental series; A Budd Railcar, an RS-2 Diesel Switcher and and a Dock Shunter, plus some freight rolling stock to go with them.

  In 1994, my father went to California for a holiday, and came back with a Bachmann “American” 4-4-0 Jupiter and a rake of Pullman coaches. Another trip 10 years later saw a GM F7 and some freight cars. These have now been augmented by 2 Rivarossi Union Pacific 4-8-8-4 “Big Boys”, X4014 in 2019 rebuild condition and has a set of Union Pacific passenger cars for it to haul, as well as a few reefers and box cars. One item that has been on my wish list for many years is the Series 0 Japanese Shinkansen “Bullet Train”. In March 2020, I saw that one of the big UK shops was advertising them, so I placed an order. 7 months later it arrived
