Travels With Charley

Not all model railways are the same, very few of them depict an abandoned railway!

When I was in my early teens, some 45+ years ago, I read Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck. At the time I owned a Husky die-cast camper van and, for obvious reasons, associated it very strongly with the book.

The book and camper in these photos are not the originals, I found them on eBay one Sunday afternoon and decided to recreate Steinbeck’s journey in miniature.
