I have been making some coal staithes out of thin balsa. Whilst looking up a reference in my The Lambourne branchline book I came across a photograph which gave me an idea for another operation that had not occurred to me. It is a sad event but an excuse to run a model dmu special on the last few days of the lines operations before closure.

I happen to have in stock a Bachmann 108 which was an impulse buy on my part. I’ve always liked the first generation dmu’s and this livery I think suits it very well. This could be the ideal chance to give it a run.

It is simply a matter of it shuttling back and forth, but sometimes that is enough operation.

I suppose I’ll have to get a green early emblem 08 next and cover the activities between the early fifties and closure in the seventies.
