Flying Scotsman, Cock o’ the North, Mallard and Claud Hamilton
These are my magnificant model HO scale LNER Flying Scotsman, P2 Cock o' The North and the A4 Mallard together with the lovely LNER P16 4-4-0 Claud Hamilton steam engines. These wonderfull steam engines were used in Britain between 1900 and 1960.
I grew up in Wivenhoe, Essex, England in the 60's and 70's and I only vaguely remember steam trains running on my local line but they have a romantic and vivid memory of life in my village then. Their steam had stained the bridges and overpasses for so long even though 90% of the train traffic was Diesel/Electric every train spotter still envisaged and hoped that the next train through would be a Steam Engine.
