"Suburban steam"

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates!

Having returned to university, I have found myself inundated with work - 60113, Great Northern, has had to put on hold (though she is looking delightfully A1/1 like, if I do say so myself), and the new layout plan - much simplified from the first design all those weeks ago - will be uploaded soon for your interest.

However, I did manage to buy a rather handsome Eastern Region tank engine, from the Loughborough Model Centre - a rather smashing little shop just a cycle ride away from the university.

Seen above, it's of the "N2" Gresley 0-6-2T class, and will make a splendid addition to the Copley Hill fleet, once appropriately weathered. That will be the next subject of my Copley Hill Works blog...!
