Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Kit and scratch built model locomotives from the Southern region in 1938 built by and discussed with my dad in this video.

This is a very special video in many ways. Dad dedicated himself to building these marvels and I have shared a number with you in the past, I thought it would be amazing if dad himself could appear and help describe how he made them.

Finding him in good health, we fetched him and set up this video.

I really hope you enjoy it, it’s a very personal tour of our joint hobby and despite being elderly now and suffering from life’s hardships, dad seemed really well when describing his efforts.

You will see a LBSCR C2, LBSCR E1, LSWR D15 and one of the famous LSWR T9s.

Your dad's models are really impressive and quite stunning. It would be interesting, informative and entertaining to see you do such a thing, and it might help me and a lot of other people to be taught such a fine skill.

Hi Mike & your dad too. Sorry I have been a long time in viewing this but hey….bloody great video from you both. Super clear photography & very well presented indeed. Not forgetting about all the beautiful locomotives your dad has done. 100% enjoyment all round chaps. Best regards, John.


Great little video Mike with you and your dad it reminded me of a program that was on TV back in the 1970s when I was a kid called Model World . With you and your dad giving a insight to how he built his trains .                                     Donny ( AKA DonnyRailMan)

Very nice and as you say a special video indeed, strange that I put up a white metal C2 on my video at the same time as you. All the best to your Dad he seemed pretty lucid on the video. Thanks for taking the time to do this it was really interesting,

+chambs123 Hi John, apart from one loco all these use good old open frame motors.

MikesMovies says:

+hollpoll Hi Stewart, hope you find this one. I feel sure you will like it 🙂

Steve Hiedeman says:

Loved this video!!  When we were in Lincoln, visiting some friends, we went to the Train Museum in York. Was a beautiful experience seeing all the English Steam Loco's on display up there. Had a marvelous time wandering around and looking at all the loco's!

Carmine Allocca says:

Very nice restorations! A noble effort!!

What a master model maker your Dad is Mike. Oh to have such ability. Looking forward to seeing more of his work in the future. Kind regards. Paddy

David Howarth says:

Your Dad sure was good with adding detail to the models he built , funnily enough I used to live at Bridgemary nr Gosport about 1978 ish  for a few years , but not in to modelling then so never knew about that shop , intriguing how do you put the layout on to  the screen at the back …video tutorial in the making ? …Dave
