73119 was allocated to Stewarts lane as its home shed. The depot plaque was a picture of battersea power station.

thanks monty, the loco already has the right depot sign so thats a result so all i need to do is add the name plates and renumber it, which i've never done before anyone got any suggestions as what to use to remove the current numbers off the loco?

cheers

A fibreglass pencil is great as long as you are gentle.

yeah dutch is the way to go :lol: but seriously there are several heljan class 33's about in dutch livery and most shops seem to be selling the hornby class 73 in dutch rather cheap so it's a good time start getting them i think plus with the amount of rolling stock around from dapol, hornby and bachmann some interesting formations of trains can be made, i look forward to seeing your first purchase.

cheers

i did intend to do some more work on the petrol station last night but instead i had a good running section and then had a good clean which is well over due in fact after the clean i managed to get some great slow running out of the new 73's :D
and just for Ben here's an updated picture of the petrol stations with all the cars facing the right way :lol:

Image

also as you can see i have added some skaledale recycling bins to the forecourt, plus i'm looking at getting some noche figures for it.

cheers

Right time for a little update.

Spent this morning painting the interior of my class 108, as I’m planning on buy a noch multi pack of seated people from gaguemaster to populate the DMU's and coaches as i think it will add a look of reality to them and also it helps get rid of the god awful blue plastic that the seats of the 108 are made from.

i've also made two low relief buildings for the rear of the layout.

Image

printed a Maidstone and district bus company of the internet and added it to one of the buildings.

Now the 08641 "Dartmoor" has been out on the mainline.

Image

Image

Image


As it can be seen here passing thru Lordsbridge station and you can clearly see the gap where the signal box used to be on the platform.

And finally 37421 “Strombidae” is pulling a rake of mk3 coaches in intercity livery, the coaches are on there way for an over haul.

Image

Image

Comments welcome as ever.

Cheers

Darren

P.S. the next update should include so new pic’s of my class 43 as I’ve decided to give it a run.
