hello again
i'm back after finally finishing doing all the jobs on my list of things to do i have finally found some time to sit down and plan out where to go next on Lordsbridge,
first of all very little work has been done since my last post mainly due to work, so i still have lots to do, i have spent the morning running a few loco's round the layout as it got a little damaged the other night, so first thing i had to do was realign a few pecies of track now thats done, i have got the point motors ready to be wired up so thats the job for today i think and seen as i haven't posted a pic for ages here's a really boring one of the ballasted area against the retaining wall.

more updates to follow.

cheers

Darren

thanx for the warm welcome back guys, yeah the crane arrived Ian looks great behind my NSE class 50, i'll try and get some pictures up of it in the next few days, as for my carefully worked out plans for todays work load on the layout went straight out the window when i got a phone call saying i need to go to work as my staff had gone sick so kinda ruined my day. :(
anyway this evening i have been working out the loco's to use on the passenger service i am tempted to add a third rail as i'd love to run my 4 cep and the hornby 4 vep which i have on order bit after the failure of the third rail on Lordsbridge mk1 i think ill steer clear this time, so the main bulk of passenger services will be class 108's in NSE, i will also use the 4 cep as push pull stock with a class 33 in NSE (i'll probably do the same thing to with the 4 vep when i get it) also a class 50 will haul a rake of NSE mk2's on a cross country service, i would also like to have a intercity service running through Lordsbridge but i'm pretty sure Kent didn't have any Intercity services could be wrong thou so i will use modellers licence.

that finished my little rant hope i didn't bore you all to death.

cheers

Darren

thanks for the comment, the points i used where bog standard hornby points, hope that helps.

not much progress on the layout today instead i decided to get the weathering powders out :D
i have so far given bachmann signal box a good coat of dirt, along with my hornby railfreight brake van, i'll put some pics up tomorrow to see what you guys think.

thats all for now.

cheers

hello

as promised here's the pictures of my attempts to weather my bachmann signal box.

Image
Image

i used black weathering powder on the bricks, to tone down the colour a bit and then used some rust colour to go over the railings and drain pipes, think it turn out ok.

secondly i weathered my railfrieght brake van.

before

after

again i tried to tone the colour down abit to make it less shiney.

let me know what you guy's think?

cheers
