As usual, after doing some work on the three coaches, I had to wait for glue to dry. The latest work is some electrical conduit attached to the carriage ends to mask the filled joins where the vehicle ...

The coaches continue (slowly) towards completion. The bodywork on all three is finished, but still needs a little fettling There are two underframes ready (old Tri-ang caboose underframes, fitted with ...

That is one idea, but means the layout would still need three baseboards, and that is one of the features I'd like to change. Also, the siding space is a bit limited for a terminus and not laid out to ...

When I built Great Sutton I drew up plans for a terminus version as well as the junction, opting for the latter as it would have a different operating pattern to my other layouts. However experience a ...

You could be right about making a new start on the roof, Bob. As usual it was the thought of carving three identical compound curves out of balsa that put me off. I think if the parallel lines on the ...

Even the very short grass looks like flock powder Smile I like the station nameboard, too; a nice detail, easy to replicate. Does the last line read Trenes 2 Minutos? Surely not, otherwise it might b ...

Just caught up with your latest blog, Bob. Looks like you've had a very well-spent Saturday. I particularly like the fuel oil tanks, with what looks like one of Ian's gizmos for the fuel pipe connecti ...

Here is the work done to date on the oil barge. Ingredients: Bulstrode, an old Tri-ang wagon tank, some scraps of Dapol signal box and some Tri-ang caboose ladder for the side windows. Still a bit rou ...
