    So two of those packs would form a reeeeeaaaaalllly short rake, or you'd have a long rake and a load of generators to sell on...

    More or less. The generator could be modified with a bit of work to form a standard, but should you really have to mess about with a RTR wagon like that? There is also the option of respraying some Railtrack standards, which you can then use to build up a rake.

    Anybody can give a model a blast of an airbrush. But as Rich has said above, the trick is to try get it as close to what you're looking at, rather than what you think it should look like. You've nailed it, that's a top job.

    Hyster 16 ton forklift trucks LV1 & LV2 have been purchased and will be for unloading the Guinness,fertilizer pallets,








    Did you hand-paint LV1 and LV2 yourself, @ttc0169?

    I found one in white but couldn't find one in yellow.

    It's a strong possibility Dave. Noel is the master of the repaint, he can make anything pass as irish!

    I don't really have a layout, just a board that slides under the bed for running sessions

    lubing up is a weekend thing.

    Lovely bit of stock there Dave, definitely my cup of tea. 143 is a favourite of mine, it's a cracking little model.

    It doesn't matter how big or small your board/layout is. What's important is that you have something to enjoy running your trains on. 

    As for lubing up, yes its definitely a job that should only be tackled at the weekend :ph34r:

  5. Thanks for the update Fran. Good news all round me thinks, it'll be a nice little breather between the 121 and the A's.

    And with the amendments carried out, it will no doubt be a top, top model when it finally arrives. More than happy to wait :)

    The layout looks a lot better in photos. My ballast work is dreadful and even at that it took a long time to do. 

    I've been following this from the very beginning, and it's been a joy to watch it progress. Your ballast work is far from dreadful, it looks fantastic! 

    It's a small area you've had to work with. But what you've managed to fit into the space available is very impressive. It looks alot bigger than it is, which is down to your modelling skills. This will always be one of my favourites on here.

    Suspect that if you removed the trains, the photos would still look good, such is the quality of the ballasting, trackwork and scenics. Sets off these wonderful trains so well.

    Agree totally David. The back scene blends in with the scenics seamlessly. It's very hard to tell where both join each other. The track work and ballasting finish things off perfectly.
