Well if it's not leaning make it do so, otherwise it's inaccurate! And while you're at it it wants a puddle of oil under it's rear end, and bloodstains round the engine hatch from the poor hapless sod who's got to work on the thing to make it truly accurate!

Good man!
Of course for 100% accuracy you need your AA guys paying it some attention too... :mrgreen:

Ok so from now onwards, you all need to spot this wheelbarrow, it will be hidden in one of my pictures each update. :)

I have been detailing the garage

Image

the engine shed so far, am awaiting some bachmann figures from Hatton's

Image

a man has been added near the water crane, his name is Mr Shifty

Image

have been trying out the salted rust method, will post updates when it is done

Image

Have been detailing my 0-4-0 with equipment and larger bufferbeams (picture of the bufferbeams has disapeared so will put that up with the rust results)

Image

the water crane has had a chain added as seen here http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=38187

Nice updates Harry, the layout is looking great. Is the wheelbarrow in the 3rd from last photo in the engine shed by the barrels?

That's no way to treat a B, sticking it in a garage! And there is a massive flaw in your garage scene I'm afraid mate. No way is there enough rust-free metalwork under a BMC Mini strong enough to take the weight of one side of the car on a trolley jack! :mrgreen: :D :wink:

Cheers E2V and Graham, I'll stick with a brush for now, they're cheaper. (by a large margin!) all details in the garage are scratchbuilt too :)

Harry - that loading gauge was made to fit into a base which clipped to the track, so used without one it is going to foul. 55mm from rail tops to the centre of the gauge bar is about right. Many loading gauges could be lifted about 6 inches when not being use to check a load, so you can err on the high side.

Yes but I measured the distance John, and it was the same. I think the fact that they were on a set of points didn't help :) thanks anyway, Harry
