That single deck bus (H37) looks nicely weathered, the roller brush washing plant must've broken down again :D
What's the maker of that red diecast bus ? Corgi, EFE ?

so I've had the paint pot out today.

73068 was "roonified" with gold pipework
the badly painted bus I painted years ago has been taken into "war department stock" :P and has received a rather plain livery from its new owners at the War Museum, acting as a mobile museum

so while at the Stockton weekender festival i got time to look around the market stalls in the town centre, for £15 i came bach with a GWR hornby 4 wheel coach, a 0-4-0 thomas and a smokey joe, both the locos work too.

had a look around the Redcar model railway exhibition today. it was "ok", being 50p difference between that show and the Hartlepool one and the difference between the two shows was massive. anyway I did spend some more pennies :P got a CRsignals 3 aspect signal which is in situ awaiting wiring. also came back with a couple of lineside huts, a flower bed, a fisherman in a boat, a siding thing, a newspaper kiosk and some battery packs.

big changes to the QBR soon, I have just inherited an N guage layout and stock. this will we adapted into an extension for my 00 gauge layout where the two layouts will meet, the N gauge becoming a Narrow Gauge railway in effect. will post pictures and stock list later, from what I have seen thus far I have:

2 dual controllers
dapol 45xx
J94 in BR black
american steam loco
american santa fe diesel
2 blue and grey Mk1s
rake of goods wagons
several books and mags
a layout complete with operating turntable
several boxes of stuff :lol:

so this is the N gauge layout I have acquired. plan is to incorporate in into my already existing layout as a narrow gauge railway. something similar to standard gauge meets ravenglass and eskdale railway

Hi,

more like the golden valley light railway at the midland railway centre, :D
I love your layout, i wanted to do a preserved railway, run anything with anything, but not enough space (there will be :twisted: ), I think my layout will be an LMS-GWR joint railway,
a GW branch and an LM main line ( a coronation mabey, but not enough funds :cry: ).
P.S. Is the website you made on webs free?
