The newly-arrived Hornby Magazine covers the new Bachmann model very fullY – but I already have mine! I should be unboxing it soon, and pan some more photos.

Catching up

I got badly behind with loading my photos here, but I’m gradually catching up – though I don’t know how long it will last!

Double Fairlie

Bachmann have just launched a new surprise locomotive, the very unusual Ffestiniog narrow gauge Double Fairlie. I have enjoyed several journeys on the Ffestiniog, and I chose it for my last holiday, so I just had to order one of these when they were announced, and deliveries started few days ago, and mine has now arrived.

Snow!

Snow has been rare here in the English Midlands (The Black Country, to be more precise) in recent years (another sign of global warming), but we had a significant snowfall here today, and the very cold weather meant that the snow lasted all day.

Keeping warm

The iPad battery seems to be well past its best, it’s not holding charge very well and generally needs charging twice a day. I’m falling back on a much older Surface 3 Pro a lot now. It’s larger and heavier, but it has a big advantage in that it it will run a lot more serious software than the iPad.
