the above image shows what is basically a before and after shot, both locos were originally 1464 in BR unlined green. the one one the left became 1461, received matt black smokebox and chimney and lining :)

That newly lined 14xx really does look spiffing old chap ;) i might have to hop aboard the footplate and take it for a spin :P

Nice double header shots too xD

thank you :) if you can fit in :lol: :lol:

RE the double header: track 1 (outer track) is having platform issues again, despite being glued down the platform has seemingly moved and now coaches get stuck between the 2 platforms :shock: therefore at the moment only the island platform is in use. this throws up another problem :lol: bigger locos cannot get round this bit of line so smaller locos are used, however, the 4 bach coaches are too heavy for the smaller locos hence the double heading :lol:

so I has unhappy about having the 4 wheel coach from the "My First Hornby" set trundling around with its grey windows <- why? why did they give it grey windows?

so I decided to attempt to turn it into a Brake coach, to me its not completely finished, I would like to get hold of some branch coach kit bits to put on one end.
I had to cut off the middle section of "windows" but accidently broke the roof section, ah well the crack is almost hidden :lol: :lol:

at Tanfield today I managed to pick up a second hand mini bus, on closer inspection I noticed it had been repainted, big hint being a "First" logo on the rear window :lol:

Image

I also picked up a Dapol J94, renumbered and detailed

lastly the yellowing white roof of my old pullman car was starting to annoy me so I painted it up a little

I tried doing something similar to your brake conversion by repainting a coach into a middy railway plum colour and painting out some windows and putting it on an old triang horse box chassis (had nothing else to spare :P ) I will have to get you a pic at somepoint and show you on msn, i think i have a picture on my old laptop so i need not wait until i fetch it from england :D

Nice looking J94, set you back much?

the 'sticky out bits' were in a box of odds and ends I have in my attic, i think they are some kind of clips off a picture frame, im not too sure though, there were 6 of them, I could only use 4 as 2 were bent out of shape :?
