Each of these Peppercorn collections is a unique set of vintage pieces making up a passenger operations train set to treasure. An extensive range of track pieces, points, trackside buildings, signals, buffers and an 0-4-0 clockwork locomotive and matching tender, plus a rake of passenger coaches, packaged and presented in a substantial three layer collection chest.
At the heart of this collection is the passenger station comprised of a platform, ramps, booking hall and buildings. Together with a footbridge, a water tower, signals, a signal box, points and buffers there is everything needed for passenger operations. The 0-4-0 Locomotive and Tender are complemented by a rake of four passenger coaches in classic 'blood & custard' livery.
When you've planned your latest layout, connected up the track and positioned the station buildings, buffers, and level crossing - then you can plan the run. When you've planned the run you must set all points to their start positions and prepare the train. When the train is ready and the sequence of points changes planned and everyone is ready - off she goes.
It looks so easy - but to get a 'perfect run' is no mean feat - and on this occasion we didn't quite achieve it!
