Any chance of seeing some GWR rolling stock (hint hint)?

Looking good, Ben - nice spread of models, makes, manufacturers and eras! I may try to something similar myself - but it might be quite a long post... :?

Keep on keeping on,
Gavin

Due to unforseen circumstances the Video editing could not take place today, I'm not sure when I will get time to do it, maybe tonight or tomorrow night

I managed to get an Hour to do some video editing. Just to show you the scale of this, I only managed to do 30 Seconds of the video in that time, due to pics changing with beats and then layers building up as the song builds up etc.....

Also I've done a little bit of work on my website, namely the Stocklist page, as they all have pictures now, I just need pictures of the trains now :P

Oh and before I forget, I got a parcel today, that included a Hornby BR Crim Cream Teak Sleeping car. This will be part of the exclusive Overnight Express (name is still being thought of ;) )

Pic of the coach tomorrow and I might get a bit more work in on the video tomorrow. (2 hours maybe ;) )

Well Ascot didn't happen today :cry: so I instead spent an hour, or 2.....or 3 in the loft :)

I'm trying to get my Jinty back into shape for use again. (about 6 months out of use. So a clean and a 'run in' period, it didn't have that at first :/ and I thought better late than never, and also because I thought it might help with cleaning the wheels.

I was also doing more work on the hill around where the upper level branch terminus will be.
Image
I completely cleared this area, before there was a grass mat down, as nearly all the area covered by the grass mat was going to be covered by either station, hill or tracks.

I've also been sorting out the new overnight express, which still needs work on it (ie more coaches ;) ) and I'm also going to try and make an art deco poster for it.
Image
Image
Derailments are a bugger sometimes, but you dont often get a breakedge from just a derailment, I did this time :shock:
Image
the bogie literally fell apart

As it was me I also took some fun shots, although not very many today :?

More, better, improved pictures tomorrow and also some more work :)

I quite like the Moonlight Express, myself. Although 'The Sidereal' has a certain ring to it...
