Merely with a small piece of fine grade wet 'n' dry, the handrails are metal anyhow...

Right, a little update, firstly, I've been weathering locos for an SVR colleague of mine, namely his Ivatt 2 and Ivatt 4, I have a Super D and a 'Dubdee' left to do over the weekend...
Image
The Ivatt 2, lightly weathered.
Image
The Ivatt 4, more heavily weathered.
Progress has also been made on scenery, with little bits and bobs being accumulated over the weeks...
Image
This little S&T cabinet is a wills kit, there are more set to spring up around the layout.
And My latest project (involving a full repaint, my first for a loco...)
Image
5322 as preserved, Now, how do I get some ROD transfers made???

Thats all folks :)

Many thanks for the positive comments folks, wee bit of another update, scenic work has progressed atop the cutting, the Large Prairie has been Weathered and Dumbleton Hall is complete...

Nice work Tom. Dumbleton Hall looks smashing! How do you remove the crests, lettering from the tenders/tanks?

White spirit on a cotton bud, worked vey lightly into the emblems gets them off for me, takes an age to do, but patience is the key, and dont rub too hard, as the paint will start to lift...

He has been busy recently. Done a couple of projects for me :D . He has done me a Bachmann 7F into LMS 13810 and also has done me some LMS Stanier Non Corridor Suburbans too. They look great and we should be running some locos tomorrow :P
