doubt it! The coach that broke is an old graf far one, and they also used exactly the same moulding on an LNER one, there is the reason why the coach broke! it was semi owned by the LNER :lol:

also guys there will be an update, but it will probably be tomorrow, the pictures are just uploading but I have to go out pretty much now! :lol:

Update time!

First I'm going to talk about the work I did
Then I'm going to talk about the work I planned
Then FInally just some fun shots :P

Well ,I started off by doing this
Image
Then I made this
Image
Put that under the layout and you get this!
Image
Which creates this!
Image

Yes! Its a disgiused decoupler :)

This next bit makes the way for a bit of work I hope to do this week :)
Image
Image
Image

Clearing room for a car garage/mechanics shop :)

I plan to have a weighbridge just here
Image

and a small inspection pit going into the shed (freebie from scalescenes)
Image

and a small stores here (freebie from scalescenes)
Image

I plan to finish this platform in the holidays (its been awating completiton for a while :P )
Image

Right now for Just random pictures 8)

Both my Apple Green Loco's met for the first time :)
Image
B1 was on the open wagons
Image
L1 rolls through CX at a reduced speed
Image
and then heads onto the branchline
Image
where it waits in the platform for passengers!
Image
quiet main line!
Image
Although not for long as Sir Charles Newton heads through CX
Image
and through the mainline to a stop signal - Rats!
Image
L1 and A4 seen together!
Image
and again
Image
Flying Scotsman waits in the yard
Image

Thats yer lot! I hope to get started on some scalescenes kits tomorrow, most likely the weighbridge, but we'll see!

Thanks you, The L1 is easily my favourite engine, as it is a well detailed model,well made model, very strong model and also it can negotiate all the corners on the layout (except but one, which only my terrier can get across - it will be replaced when all the station has been finished :D )

Hi Ben,

Some great photos showing some lovely loco's.

Super work with the uncoupler, might need to try that one myself.

Sound like a busy time at Castle Cross, look forward to future updates.

Mike.

Well, it came up a bit quicker than I was expecting, but I'm having a very special visitor to Castle Cross soon.

Unfortunatley they wouldn't get to see a finished station :( but it should be interesting ;) and preperatiobs are getting started already ;)

I didn't quite manage to get started on the scale scenes stuff today....oh welll there is always a tomorrow after a today!!!
