Errm, EM?

No, I’m not going to start playing with smaller toy trains, or get a tweed jacket, this is just a brief diversion from my O scale narrow gauge modelling.

I have made a small diorama, OK, a plinth, for my Matchbox “Rocket” to sit on though. The die-cast loco is modelled in 4mm scale, with the track gauge being approximately 18mm. I have cut a short length of OO track so that it looked as if each rail is set on stone blocks instead of wooden sleepers. The rails were then glued to gauge on the base and buried in bird grit. Green scatter completes the scene as trackside grass.

It’s nothing spectacular but it does look better having the model just sitting on top of the fireplace in the front room.
