I've just caught up with your last couple of updates Jason.

Excellent modelling as always and distinctively recognisable as your 'style'.

I like the little corner unit: It's almost a diorama in it's own right :)

Its looking really good. Something I think you should know is that there's no k in the welsh alphabet.

Thanks.

I was thinking it was like a diorama as I was building it!

Thanks Sam. Didn't know that.

Will class it as modellers license!

First update for ages! Found time to do a few bits.

I’ve finally finished the tunnel area on board 1. Not bad considering it was started in 2007! It was just one of those jobs I kept putting off. It’s finished in a similar manner to the slate mine area on board 2 using actual slate chippings, smashed up into bits for smaller stones, with the main powder coating being slate chippings smashed into dust! I also decided to fasten the top on to improve the appearance. I had left it loose to allow access, but couldn’t disguise the gap well enough. I can reach most things from either end if there is a problem (I think!).

3 carriages have been sat in a drawer unfinished for over 12 months so I have finished them off. They are painted maroon & cream to match the 2 FR bogie carriages already in use. These are DM75 & DM76 kits. They are all numbered have L R on the sides and class numbers on the doors, the bogie carriages have been done similarly.

I love the carriages: The mat paint works well, and I see you've picked out door handles and hinges. Interesting that the second class compartments only have windows to one side - any idea why that was?

Out of curiosity what couplers are you using there?
Great to see an update btw :)

Thanks Southernboy.

I decided to use matt paint on all the stock and satin on the locos. I did consider satin for the carriages. I used a fine point permanent marker to pick out the handles & hinges! Not sure about the windows. Guess you get a better view if you pay for a 1st class ticket!

All my kit built stock has Greenwich couplings on. I also use them on the locos, but don't put the loop on.

Thanks, I hadn't heard of Greenwich couplings - just looked them up out of interest.

I think there are similar versions for N gauge/2mm (but under a different name) and at some point I need to decide on what to use myself on Frankland in lieu of the standard type that come with N gauge stock.

Interesting that you use mat on carriages and satin on locos ... I can see a logic there.

Well I'll be looking forward to your next update on Clifton 009 - Llanwyke :)

The Llanwyke station platforms now have a bit more life in them with the addition of a few Preiser figures:

I need to sort out some signs now.

The fleet of Crosville buses has increase further:

I’ve also bought a fair few extra Pocketbond Classix road vehicles. Hattons have been selling some at half price. Starting prices as little as £2!

just read all the way through both of your threads, and it is amazing! I really like the idea of OO9, especially after reading this (although I may have to save those ideas for a long time yet, I'd need a lot more time and skill) anything else happened since, I look forward to updates on this railway, possibly one of my favourites on NRM now.
