Unfortunately the weathering on the B is not mine, but a friend did it for me, and I have to say made a fine job! The Carriage shed is a Heljan model, still needs a  lot of work, I want to add opening doors if possible and will be adding guttering and down pipes before finishing off the paintwork, Car Primer being quite a nice coloured base coat! Fist of all I need more rail seeing I have run out.................

And yes GWR 3803 and her sisters are.
Have a thing for GWR Engines, spose thats why I have 12 of them.

The only one to elude me thus far is the "City of Truro"
Damm impossible to get one, well, here in Australia that is.

Have only found one place that sells them retail, and thats the National Railway Museum in the UK.

yes truro is a hard one to get, just like the Deltic.prototype and.the Midland Compound.

However have you thought of biying one of the Bachmann 'Cities' theyve just released and renaming them? I gather if you get the early version all youd have to do is whomp on the City of Truro name and numberplates!

Yeah, I really need to get some backgrounds done for the layout. Embarassed Or at least some white panels to cover the curtains... Couldn't find any white card to put up for this one, so had to make do with the curtains and wall...

"Mate sent an email to the NRM in the UK and and just recieved this reply from them."

Ask them if they will send it to a friend in the UK. Then get onto one of the clubs over there and ask if someone would act as your UK agent.

I have a couple of agents in the US who act on my behalf in matter like this. It is also a good way of making friends around the world and you will be surprised just how much it will pay off for both of you.

Heck!! That UP loco would just about need its own ZIP code I reckon!!! hahaha

I have a brother who is just about to retire after 50 years of being the barber at Narrandera and he is now going to build a UP layout with some quite large (non articulated) steam locos. I've told him he's going to need to use lots of real estate to make curves broad enough for his 2-10-2 and 4-8-4s.

Ah from Kadina, will be up there in a while for a car show I am entering.
And Narrandera, know it very well. 40 years in the ADF and you do get around belive me.....

Yes "Double D" as I call her is a (UP DD 40 X) is one big bugga,
2 X 16 cyclinder, 2 stroke desiel motors, both twin turbo'd. What could one ask for.

"Double D" is a Bachmann all wheel drive and measures some 14 inches in length.

Anyway, yes you definitly need real wide radii curves for the "Big Boys".
One of the reasons I designed my layout the way I  did.

Earthquake damage!!!  ShockedShockedShocked

Tuesday evening's earthquake in Victoria is well documented elsewhere.  It was felt here as a strong tremor lasting well over half a minute.  In the workroom objects fell from shelves and pictures danced on the wall alarmingly.

Outside there has been very little damage.  Several of the little people have been thrown off their feet and some ended up a long way from where they should be.
The only other problem was a wagon in the sidings which derailed one wheelset; that alone illustrates how strong the tremor was in this area.  It didn't take long for the crew to attend and rectify the problem however.



The wagon is one of the Kernow MRC / Dapol JIA NACCO clay tankers in a limited edition heavily weathered finish and superbly represents the prototype in detail and weathering.



All lines are now cleared for traffic once more following inspection and all the electrics remain in working order.

Welcome to Wallandia, a worm hole where trains from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Germany, France and America randomly apprear.

I finally got round to taking a few shots of my shed. Construction started about 18months ago, but then I had union troubles last year, and work stopped for about 8months. I finally resumed about 4 months ago, and have just wired DCC into the system. The main line is actually I long track with 1 return loop under the layout, and the other up a spiral at the top of the layout, lap time about 5 1/2 min. The is a second alpine line that will run from Wallysville Station at the bottom up to the Mount Wallip Ski resort.

Speaking of weathering ..... here's a couple off my own workbench.


 
Bulleid passenger stock treated to a wipe-over with black and brown powders:



And a class 42 diesel-hydraulic which has had the same plus some mapping-pen marking to enhance the doorways and vent louvres.



The technique is simply to brush on the required weathering powder with a soft and wide paint brush (I use a 1.5cm "Renoir" type) spread as evenly as possible and then a stiff brush along the direction of travel with a 1" house-painting brush to achieve the "travelled" effect then top to bottom to suggest the vertical effects of rainfall and carriage-cleaning.  The brushing will cause powder to lodge in recesses and against proud mouldings such as door handles just as dirt does.  

When satisfied then wipe over very lightly with a soft cloth such as a square of old T-shirt fabric which gives a slight sheen back to the surface suggesting the paintwork still wears varnish beneath a little grime.

Thanks for more on the dark arts of weathering Gwiwer, I always believe in the theory "The day you stop learning, is the day you stop breathing".

Dapol, better known for their N-gauge range, have a growing and excellent catalogue of 00 items.  Witness this class 22 loco in BR diesel green with my weathering (including white radiator spill staining) over the top of a quite respectable "factory dirt squirt", full detail pack added, crew added and posed in a setting typical of their stamping ground in 1960s west of England.





Very recent Dapol 00 items surpass Hornby for quality and detail by some margin and are approaching the market leaders for quality namely Bachmann.
