Magix Movie Edit Pro 2005 It's very simple to do with this programme, you select the pictures then use the magix movie show maker which does all the effects, transitions and rhythmic editing to the music you have selected, with the click of a mouse. Well nearly I did a few manual changes after.

Thanks Chris re the points

This is not really an update as I have scrapped the quarry, I've been beavering away for the last 10 days, trying to get Arthonpew station, town and quarry finished. Its turning out to be a big job as its 8 ft x 4 ft, I spend ages doing something then step back and it vanishes into the big open space.

I'm beginning to think I've lost the knack after 5 yrs away from it, the quarry was made then, using tin foil and plaster but was not painted, its been a pain trying to get it to look natural. Today I went to Wigan Model shop which is an Aladdin's cave, I got some Cork bark and to night I ripped out the plaster only to find that the cork also looks wrong. I think I'll revert to the trusted high retaining wall. Anyway this is what it used to look like.

Very tempted to go back to playing trains as I'm getting very frustrated.

Have you considered using mod-rock, it's nice stuff to use and very adaptable.

Can you post a pic of how it looks at the moment with the plaster removed.

Has any one got this model if so does it do inclines?

I've got one, eat's the Exe MRC inclindes for breakfast, but they are very shallow. The Bachmann 20 is lighter than most other bachmann models, due to having to fit a Slimmer motor into the Chassis. You should know that Class 20's were almost always paired up, due to the crew not liking the the Poor Steam loco style vision when running Nose first. This doesn't mean they never ran as a single loco, just it was a bit rare. The class 20 was always a freight loco too, as it has never had any kind of train heating. Depending on the area, 24's, 25's, 26's, 27's and 33's were quite common around docks.

Just to let you know if its any help when i was younger around the age of 9 or 10 (im only 19 now) a pair of 20's used to do the nottingham to skegness passenger trains. These were put on in the holidays as there was added need for this service obviously.
