New Beginnings

Now that Jo and I have stopped selling coal this year, and following my building a small model railway, which sits on the shelf above my display cabinet in our saloon, Jo suggested that I build a layout in the hold. I have started making plans, purchasing buildings, etc. and have created a separate BLOG to cover the building of this layout, which I have named “Hadarford”. If you are interested you can follow its construction at


This is an example of a building I bought on eBay, which had had a rather poor repaint, which I have repainted myself to a far better standard. Details of this repaint can also be seen on the BLOG.

Are you both now retired, Keith?

I have watched the Golden Age of Canals many times; well worth the BBC Licence fee.

Not retired, just stopped selling coal, but still selling other things less heavy. Regards Keith
