Great to see some layout pictures, ballasting looks good, and I like the look of the sand ballast as well. I was looking at trying some black sand to see how that goes. I do enjoy your loco builds but like seeing them on the layout even more. :D

I look forward to more,

G'day Gents

Thank you for the replies, I sometimes forget I have a layout out in the shed, I spend far to much time on the workbench, hacking and cutting, so it was quite nice to do a bit of ballasting, even if I did get a nudge a year ago........was it that long ago :shock: so I'm going to spend a bit more time outside this summer, and finish the ballasting and get a lot more scenery done, I have a lot of sand left, so the goods yards need to be finished.

But I can't leave loco's alone, here's another one I started last week, this has nothing to do with the LNER, some of these loco's worked at Willesden and Kentish Town, is that a clue, Take a Fowler 2-6-4 tank engine, cut the back of the chassis off to make a 2-6-0, grab a handy Stanier 8f loco body ( mine was a spare tender drive body, pick up from E-Bay for a Quid) and hack out the underside of the body, a tiny bit of work is required on the chassis, the whole lot only took 30 minutes, it'll take a bit longer to finish it, and a tender was picked up today from E-Bay for it, Oh, what is it. a Stanier 2-6-0, just like the one Bachmann have just released, but this one has cost me less than 30 quid.

More ballasting, down to the last 6', Mill Hills goods yard has been ballasted in sand, so it's going well, Pics of that in the middle of next week.

The two J3's have now had there numbers fixed, there only 9 digits difference but there very different, so more tenders to build.

Away in the caravan 'till Monday, so the last bit of ballasting will have to wait until than.

G'Day Gents.

Ben a while since I posted. I've been ballasting (still) almost finished, just a bit to go in the goods yard at Edgware, and six feet of scenery, (cutting sides) have been constructed and covered with kitchen towel, now it's time to get messy with plaster, but more of that when it's done.

As a blast from the past, I have now almost, finished the Sentinal steam railcar, it's been wired up (that was head scratching, for me) and the underside has had it water tank, battery box and engine (six cylinder steam engine) another coat of green paint and name all fitted, the only thing left to do, is make the very distinctive steps, time to crank up the soldering iron.

Well worth the wait for the Sentinel - the livery really makes it stand out.

G'day Gents

Thanks for the replies, and glad to hear I've inspired someone (GeraldH).

I've been doing a bit of scenery, along side 'The Hales' goods yard, being 'open plan' it's easy to reach, see what you think.

Terrific job on the Sentinel, first class workmanship, layout is coming on a treat too.

As a matter of fact it has :shock: I've reused a overbridge from my Mill Hill snow layout, but I haven't got around to scraping the snow off. I will be getting to that bit shortly.

Love the Sentinel, What next ?
Funny I spend ages on wagons, but not locos.
I wonder which is the most addictive ?

I don't comment enough on your work Manna. Love the work on the locos and the scenery is coming together great too. I particularly like that bridge in the corner.
