    Hi.:wave: I'm known just about everywhere else under the same username. I model the Thomas characters pretty much exclusively, and I try to run them according to real British prototype practice. All my current engines are the Bachmann ones, but I will be getting the Hornby Thomas for Chrismas. For those of you who have seen Thomas and the Magic Railroad, I'm working on a model of Lady.

    ZtS, Welcome. After the 2 hours of sleep the enthusiasm of you and some others in the SODOR map thread cost me last night chasing websites, am still trying to get my brain running. I had FUN - Thanks !! Bob C.

    Zelda: Have you any idea what to name the coaches that go with Emily? Since they appear to be German prototypes (Not really sure...) I was going to give them German boys' names, say, Heinrich and Wolfgang. :mrgreen:

    I think they're Caledonian Railway clerestory coaches, so try Scottish names. As for pictures, get a load of this:

    That last one is a van for carrying cans of milk from a station to the dairy.
