Couple of little updates,
I have acquired a Bachmann 4575 to supplement my fleet of growing GW engines, It's all part of a master plan to streamline my fleet, thus I have lost a couple of BR standard locos and the LMS Crab, replaced by a 117 DMU, 4575 and GW Hall (to become either 4920 Dumbleton Hall or 4953 Pitchford Hall, not decided yet)
the 4575 has arrived first, and has been duly transformed into 5542, complete with prototypical polished hand-rails and high bufferbeam number...
As can be seen here, I've also purchased a GW liveried Hawksworth all 3rd, I may get a Brake 3rd in due course to make a short rake to mix with the Choc/Cream Mk1's, although, the Hawksworth, 2 Mk1s and a Bachmann Collett 3rd make a rather fetching preserved line style rake at this moment in time.
I have also built up an embankment at the back of the layout, and foliage is being added as funds and visits to various model shops permit.
That's all for now though
