Fire scene at Bekonscot.

Had a few fun filled hours (well the granddaughter did) yesterday at Bekonscot Model Village. Shot mainly cine due to the dull weather conditions but was fortunate to capture this pic which required very little p+p. Thanks to the IS all pix taken were very good considering the knocks and bumps received and the rushed nature of taking them. Grandparents trying to keep up lol.

I took my daughters there a few years back and they loved it. Good day out for young kids. Fascinating detail in the models.

Re: Fire scene at Bekonscot.

Thanks - if I'm unable to extract a decent shot of the inside of the signal box from the cine, when we return in a week or two I'll ask if they mind me taking a shot of the inside. I am still a lad at heart.

Looks an interesting venue.

Not sure I would like an AA box at the end of my drive though.
