Only a very for­tu­nate mod­eller can go through his or her en­tire life be­ing able to buy ev­ery­thing ex­actly how they want it off the shelf.

But after re­as­sur­ance from Ge­orge, and his ad­vice to prac­tise on spare mod­els first, I de­cided to dive in with a cou­ple of projects that would make two lo­co­mo­tives per­fect for my lay­out.
