The new coal wagon is moving on, but still needs a little more work on the painting - the Decalfix liquid lifted the base colour a little. Next the other side and then a bit more grime, as befits a co ...

Two more shots from the recent show, both showing No 3. Looking at them I realise that the loco looks a bit bare, and there is quite a lot of detail still to add, including handrails and lamp irons fo ...

Catch-up time for photos this morning, starting with Motorail - 1860 style.

This photo is for fans of doodlebugs. It appeared (very small) in MTI in an article by the Editor. The car is seen on the Wolfeboro RR, which approached its terminus beside Lake Winnipessaukee by run ...
