You can imagine how delighted Naomi and I were to have a challenge involving dolls, bears and toys as we collect them but not all my photos today are of my own things. Every year I try to get to the Hobart Model Train Show and every year I take photos so I have quite a lot of photos of model trains. Everyone loves model trains don’t they? These photos are from last year. The gentleman in the uniform is Peter Fielding who lives near Naomi. I met him some years ago when we were often travelling on the same bus. Model trains are one of his hobbies and he always exhibits a railway based on military history, usually World War One. Last year he had “The Desert War”.
I love all the layouts but I am especially fond of the ones using Triang trains as I used to have a Triang train set as a child. I also rather like the scenery of the British and European model railways.
David and I were always very fond of the British TV series Doctor Who. The TARDIS was given to him by Naomi as were the little Dalek and 11th Doctor figure.
Here is a vintage monkey who belongs to me. His name is Roy. The Teddy Bear was made by me and the cute little picnic set was a gift from Naomi. The Cabbage Patch baby was in an odd lot of dolls I bought so I knitted him an outfit but he has now moved on.
Of course I was going to add some dolls, here are just a few of my collection.
