Dave visits Little Bytham

Our friend Dave has finally visited Tony Wright's Little Bytham.

He took a few 'models' with him....


The North Eastern Stores van looks well.

Yes the Willoughby Arms was liked in many respects, Paul was not wrong.

Many thanks to Tony for a great day!

Don't know about old, but you're shorter than I remember.

Heartening to see the little blue tw.t on hallowed ground.

Can but whole heartedly agree! Great to see folk having a little bit of a laugh at themselves. Thing is to slipping in, in this case Thomas at an exhibition certainly engenders modelling to any youngsters who are perhaps reluctantly at an exhibition...... After all how many of us were introduced to railways by the Late Rev.W. Awdry and his tales.......?

I thought Yorkshire passports did not allow getting off mid journey to ensure they did not pollute the
Lincolnshire population :twisted:

Great to see your models in a new location Dave, they certainly seem at home anywhere, and so good.

Well thank you Paul.

We just invaded and took over the area for a bit, then gave it back, not as good as Gods County.

One has to travel 'abroad' occasionally just to reassure oneself that home is best...
