"As you can see from the pictures the “ladies” have found a temporary home at Mr “G S Trings” factory . It is uncertain what it manufactures but it involves numerous and various types of wagons being shunted in and out of the siding. I’m sure Mr Tring is beavering away creating an asset for 'Graces Bottom'." (Customer's layout)

From a customer - Pictures show Sir Henry Baskerville straining on the front of a spud and onion special . Who says end to end lines are not interesting. All the garden produce is brought up to the house by train apart from swedes and marrows of course. A distance of about 100 metres. At the moment I am building more wagons and another loco to go double headed with 'Sir Henry' to handle the broad bean harvest next spring!
