Hello. I do not know a thing about trains except Mr Michael Portillo lives wildly in them with his coral pink and peppermint green dinner jackets and that they sell revoltingly inedible snacks for a tenner per joule. Fig. 1. Michael used to make the Spanish trains run on time. My wife does love the whole train thing though. She finds the early 20thC trains almost spellbinding, with their association with the Great War and whatnot and frequently breaks out into Helena Bonham-Carter Edwardian mode. Question is, where to look to start building her a nice small replica train and carriage? Presumably suitable WW1 era steam train models are out there. Scale 1/72nd or so? I wouldnt know OHOO gauge things from Yoko Ono, if that makes any sense. It should. Oh, Yo-oh-oh-Ko. Fig. 2. Yoko in happier times. What is a nice WW1 train kit to build, plastic probably? Thanks for looking. If this is the wrong forum section, apologies. Seemed like a good choice at the time.
