Dave and I have known each other for more years than we both care to re­mem­ber. Our re­la­tion­ship blos­somed when I worked for Net­work South­east’s Pub­lic Af­fairs Depart­ment and Dave edited Model Rail­ways Mag­a­zine. My MD, Chris Green, no­ticed an is­sue of MRM on my desk with Dave’s ‘O’ gauge Class 86 86401 in full NSE liv­ery on the cover. Be­fore long I was com­mis­sion­ing pre­sen­ta­tion mod­els for NSE from Dave, and he stopped be­ing an ed­i­tor and be­came a full-time model maker. I’ve seen Dave’s lay­out grow over the last 20 years. It’s al­ways fun to watch and there is al­ways some­thing new to see. If ever a lay­out en­com­passed the rail­ways of the last 50 years, then this is it. Be­ing ‘O’ gauge makes it even more of an achieve­ment.
