I just finish tree locos for this layout. I work hard during 3 days to paint them and weather them.

The first one is a free lance diema base on a 040 davenport of Bachman. I use few laser cut parts.










The second one is a free lance loco base on a 040 davenport of Bachman. I use parts of backwood transkit. I'm not very happy with the result but The loco will stay like that.











The last one is a Gmeinder 18/20 on a davenport chassis. I use marvellous casting parts of Bill Martinsen c/.

Superb work Franck very realistic weathering and distressing.
So many people go way over the top, but your work is just right.

I spent a lot of time to finish my boat, I'm not a model boat builder so It's quite boring.



I just finish a snow plow inspired by a narrow gauge model from Germany





I just finish a snow plow connect to a loco inspired by a narrow gauge model in Italy.





I add also light to my building.





I test also a new kind of snow because I'm fully satisfied by this one.

This week end I wil do an exhibition near Bruxelles with the woolacombe bay.

Just like all your other models.

I'm not satisfied at 100 % on the details because I have finish my layout in the hurry. Our club closes at the end of the month !

Anyway, the layout is more or less finished and will be ready to go in exhibitions.

Here some photos with new locos and a few new rolling stocks. I will run also on the layout also a listen and a Ruston too.

I just come from the exhibition in Sedan.

It was my first exhibition with these layout and with 3 new locos.

I just forget to do video. I will do that on the next exhibition and I will post it.

The layout proves that it was reliable. I have just a little gap to improve between the layout and the transfer table.

For the locos, the beginnings was not top because of the running-in period but after it was ok. I have just to repair one because I have a swing with the wheel.

For ny next exhibtion in Paris, I will run my lister and an hudson.

I have update also my list of exhibition for 2015 2016 and 2017. So I will be pleased to see you at it.

27-29 novembre 2015 Rail Expo (Paris)

Nederlandse Modelspoordagen (Netherlands) 9/10 January 2016

MONTELIRAIL 2016 15/ 16 octobre 2016


25/26 November 2017 Warley MRC (Birmingham)

I normally avoid Warley as too big/busy/expensive but for 2017 I might make an exception. Wink

It will be the first time that I will do Warley so I have no idea on this exhibition except that it is the biggest one in the UK.
