Duxford-Update is an unofficial website, illustrating the aircraft and military vehicles on display at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, near Cambridge in the U.K.  Coverage is via a series of photo-pages & includes the IWM collection exhibits plus the many privately owned warbirds and vehicles maintained on the site.

The website was intended to provide aviation and military vehicle enthusiasts with a broad view of the Duxford scene. I live locally and once visited Duxford every few weeks. More recently however interests have changed, and my visits are much more occasional. Instead, I rely on the forum entries indicated by the links on the right hand side of this entry page, to keep up to date with the Duxford scene.

Model Rail Workshop:

More recently, model rail activities, involving electronic updates to OO gauge contemporary British locomotives or DMUs and computer layout control, have taken up an increasing proportion of my time and the website.
