Apologies for butting in, but this short video on Youtube demonstrates that the art of modelling in VERY large scale has not evaded us here in UK.


The Peppercorn A1 'Tornado' is the first full-size Class 1 passenger loomotive to be built in UK for over 50 years.  All of us who had anything whatsoever to do with this venture over the years are VERY proud of the effort made by the team that have built this beautiful locomotive.

All I can say is - Mr Pullen - are you looking at the next Aster British outline model? /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif

Do you realize how much it'd cost to get 5 guys to wear those suits!

Just watched the first video (will watch the others after I post this, I just have to say this first!)

I thought the video was sped up! WOW that thing has some get-up-and-go, don't it!?!?!

If we run our "Toys" that fast we are accused of "playing 'Slot Trains'"!
