Royal Train

Is that a bandwagon I hear approaching ? Well I'd better leap on it then...

Congratulations to Peco for producing what must be the most innovative souvenir of Will & Kate (or is it Catherine)'s wedding today. A limited edition CDA covered hopper wagon.

The logic is that these things run in Cornwall and are normally filled with the groom's Dad's biscuits. Or something.

Actually I think it's a very, very clever idea by Peco's marketing department to get their product appearing in the "normal" press in the "Look what those weirdo, wacky trainspotters have come up with for a wedding souvenir" section. There's a good chance that it will become a sought after item in the way that mugs, tea towels and empty biscuit tins won't. Whoever came up with this idea deserves a pay rise as it's so far out as to be genius.

If you want one, try here.

Oh, sorry, you wanted a real Royal Train. Well, here it is from Welshpool last year:
