On Sunday 4th December I went on one of the London Transport Museum tours of the disused Aldwych undeground station.

We also had the opportunity to visit the long-closed eastern platform.
Andrea and Kevin were also there, having volunteered to help out for the day.

FLMJ Running Days 17-09-11 18-09-11


P1110019.JPG

17/18 September were running days on the FLMJ. On Saturday, British models were allowed to run on the (normally Swedish) layout, giving me a chance to test my new Hornby 4-VEP.
On Sunday, Swedish models returned, and I got to run my new Jeco T43 and Y6 Railbus. Unfortuantely, it appears that the Y6 is unable to couple to the trailers I purchased with it, and doesn't have the power to pull them even if it could, so some further modification work is going to be required.

Brunels' Thames Tunnel - 12/03/2010

I had the rare opprotunity to walk through the Thames Tunnel build by Marc Brunel and his (more famous) son Isambard. The tunnel runs between Rotherhithe on the south bank and Wapping on the north and is now used as part of the East London Line (currently being converted to London Overground).
The tours were run by the London Transport Museum and Brunel Museum for two days only and will likely be the last time that the public will be able to walk through the tunnel (as it becomes an active railway again in April 2010).

Starting out in G-Scale -10/2/09 - 11/2/09


P1040867.JPG

I had been looking longingly at G-Scale models for a long time and, after seeing an LGB Passenger Starter Set on eBay for significantly less than anywhere else, I decided to take the plunge. The set consists of a Stainz 0-4-0T steam loco, two four wheel coaches, 4ft circle of track and controller.
I also bought an Accucraft Baguley diesel shunter train pack (Loco + 2 wagons). The loco needs a bit of work to improve running quality, probably more weight and extra pictups.
My final purchase (for the moment) was a 'Siding Set' to extend and add a siding to the cicrle of track that comes in the starter set.

Northern Line Centenary 1938 Stock Tour 24/6/07


P1000592.JPG

On 24th June 2007, the London Transport Museum's 4-car train of 1938 Tube Stock ran a number of special railtours on the Northern Line to commemorate the centenary of the Charing Cross branch.
I travelled on the 1430 departure from Golders Green, which travelled:
Golders Green - Charing Cross (Reverse) - Mill Hill East - Kennington (reverse via the loop) - Golders Green.
Unfortunately the potential for photography was limited given the largely underground nature of the tour, and LU's ban on flash photograpy.
