Me neither - but if you want to build a model, starting with the real thing cant hurt :D

Railway modelers tend to go for past rather than present. You have a lot more to play with modeling British Railways from years ago, as the whole business and what rolls on the rails has contracted a lot over the last 40-odd years. L

Indeed- good thought. Perhaps contact a railway museum?

this probably isn't relevant, but in the past people didn't bother with "mufflers"on railway locomotives, so you'd have diesel exhausts straight off turbos' - a lot of British trains were very loud and noisy - and that makes them popular with enthusiasts today L

There must be at least one model rail ex' in your area this year - I'd advise you go and ask people who are exhibiting. L
