Sometimes you find something that inspires you to get modelling again. A recent treat for myself that did just that is a newly published book, "London's East End Railways":
It's a hard cover publication, containing both a narrative story of the author's experiences of working in the Eastern Region of British Railways, and some excellent photos from all periods back into Great Eastern days. This volume covers the line out (roughly) from Liverpool Street Station to Stratford station and locomotive works.
The pictures are almost uniformly interesting and of very good quality. Highly recommended for any Great Eastern modeller that wants to soak up the atmosphere, research details for modelling, or just enjoy a rather interesting story.
