Cock 'o' the North is Alive and Well

Another 'new' train is running this month on our Chinley model railway, new that is to Famous Trains.

A key member's superb Hornby Railroad model of London & North Eastern Railway Class P2 2-8-2 No. 2001 Cock o'the North now has a train of twelve rather scruffy Gresley coaches in tow. The coaches are weathered as we remember them.

This Hornby model engine pulls its heavy load easily, and could well pull more if there were any more similar carriages! (We have ordered Hornby's new buffet car to go with it.)
