Three rail


Finally managed to obtain a 1950s 3-rail loco at not too bad a price.  Thus I now have a (very small) working layout.

I would have preferred one in LMS livery but they are harder to come by and usually more expensive. It makes a nice train-like clickety-clack noise  probably due to almost every part being metal, unlike the plastic of later 2-rail systems. There’s something about these early Hornby products…they have more character than later models.

The wooden station is actually O-scale and came as an addition to a Hornby clockwork set. (Passenger set No. 21) many years ago.
