Rusting away

NOTHING LIKE REALISM IN THE MIDST OF MODELING!!

Playing Trains

A major influence on my early narrow gauge modelling was the Craig and Mertonford Railway as described in P D Hancock’s book “Narrow Gauge Adventure”. Like the FCPyF the C&MR changed noticeably over the years but perhaps my favourite version was where the engine shed at Craig had a graveyard of scrap loco parts behind it. I’d like to pay homage to this when the time comes to add details to Grande, the area between the coaling stage and the back door of the engine shed will be perfect for collecting such odds and ends.

But it’s not just the loco parts that will be rusting away, the buildings themselves are corrugated iron and in serious need of a lick of paint!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
