USA British Coal Drag, Stonehenge

My latest two OO projects. One of the
things I really like about British OO is that
one does not need a fifty car rake to
make an interesting consist. The coal
is from road material from a fifty year
old box of Life Like scenic materials.
Stonehenge, one of my favorite British icons,
was molded out of a few pennies worth of
clay. Surprisingly easy.

Its true, the private owner coal wagons are colourful and interesting. Like the Stonehenge! In fact Bristol is not too far from Stonehenge. Its still not known how they were erected.

You might be interested to know Bognor Regis figured in the last words of King George V. On his death bed it was suggested to him he might recover after a visit to Bognor, a popular seaside resort, to which he replied "Bugger Bognor" and promptly died.

It needed a little oomph, so I added
a fence to the perimeter, using Super
Glue, then got some on my lip. Nice.
Also, fixing up the derelict Dapol church
in the coal rake scene. Adding on a
missing chunk of roof, etc. I've had
it since about 1991, and its taken a
pounding what with various moves.
