Decided to add a little more detail to my SSM crossing gates, earlier today. 

First job, was to cut four new pillars to the size required.

Supports and hinges were then added to two of the four pillars.

Then, it was on to painting.

Job done.

Class 201  no.220 

Weathering has been kept to a minimum, with the exhaust and underside carrying most of the grime. 

I have also fitted a driver.

Subtle weathering, absolutely love it.

How  did you remove cab to fit a driver ? I have been wanting to fit drivers to my three 201’s.

Thanks.

Excellent work pal. 220 has always been my favorite of the class. The exhaust always sounded a bit different. The gates look amazing too. Des has brought some amazing kits to the Irish scene down through the years.

Cheers, Rich. Bit of soft spot for 220 myself, so she was always going to be first in line to get a little bit of a makeover. 

Yep, fantastic kits and an absolute gent to deal with.

Apologies, hadn't been on, so completely missed your post. I see you got sorted anyway.

Another batch of wagons are now on the bench. This time around, it's my 12 gypsum's along with 3 more ballast hoppers.

Spent the last couple of evenings highlighting some of the smaller details.

Loads have also been removed for some cosmetic work.

Wagons will eventually be weathered. When, is anyone's guess.
