Loved the sound of the 20....... do you get the clickety-click sound of the rails with the engine sounds?

I seem to have mislead you, the sound of the class 20 has been edited on to the video, I don't have DCC so there's no sound from the loco.

I believe Bachmann have or are about to release a sound version class 20.

Unfortunately I've not been to well lately, so I've been doing what I can with regard to populating Pawford. I have used a number of different manufacturers, which means some of the people are different sizes, as can be seen in the photos.

My hands are not as steady as they should be, also my sight as been affected, so I'm not very happy with the results, but its the best I can do at the moment.

I have done quite a few, with a lot more still to do. (Click on the pictures to enlarge),

Image

And more in a box yet to be opened.

The models made by Aidan Campbell I find to be the best to paint, as they are larger, therefore your able to put more detail in to the faces.

I start by painting the models face first, as it gives me the inspiration for the clothing.

Image

These are some of the Aidan Campbell models

Image

The next picture shows Langley miniature model people, the policeman is an Aidan Campbell model, you can see the size difference is not to great height wise, but the girth is bigger.

Image

The next set are Dapol C002 & C008 Figures once again the hight difference is not to great.

Image

However with the [url=http://www.slatersplastikard.com/2,3%20&%204mm%20Products/slaters%204mm_scenic_accessories.htm]Slater 4A26
[/url] Figures the difference is noticeable

Image

The differences hopefully will not be noticed once I have put them on the layout in different places.

I like them, very nice.
will give pawford a lived in feel, the size really is noticeable in the last photo but not really in any of the others. But hey people are differnet sizes and girths, so shouldnt make too much difference. Pc plod has been on the pies, just stick him near the bakery or burger van.

I see alladdin has lost his genie

Thanks Ian and Tazskool, I've spent today trying to improve the painting of the faces, I've also managed to get some Tacky Wax as mentioned in another thread. It does look like it will do the job of sticking them in place, with out it being permanent. I'll post some more pictures when I place them on the layout.

I don't mean to be rude, but how do you access the fiddle yard??

I don't really have a fiddle yard, there are 6 long hidden sidings under Alston that hold 6 coach trains, that are not taken off the layout. I have access to these sidings by either taking the tops or fronts off, as shown here.

Click on pictures to enlarge

Image Image

I have a mpd area with coach sidings so locos are stored here until required.

Image

The freight stock has sidings either at the docks

Image

or the goods yards at Pawford or Arthonpew,

Image Image
Image

So I have more areas to store rolling stock on the layout than I have rolling stock at the moment, so a fiddle yard is not required at the moment.

I suppose its like the real thing, I have to move the rolling stock around on the layout to store it.

Shortly once I'm able to get on the layout again I will post new pictures to show the work that has taken place since these pictures were taken.
