D7022 with its new head code fitted. Also giving a quick test on the track and all seems ok at the moment. You never know what the back to backs are going to be like on the earlier Heljan locos.
I've also fitted a new SWD V4 XL decoder in to my Brit & although it needs tuning it's very good, the whistle is superb. It's by far the best steam decoder I've heard so far along with their black 5.
Il be waiting to hear their GW decoders and get some in my kings and castles.

Brown paint arrived so weathering has commenced. I've been following colour pictures and their always seems to be a defined line were very dirty ballast gives way to clean, the centre of the track has been given a spray of JLTRT track dirt. The spray is great it has a directional nozzle so I could do a thin line between the rails without masking anything. Great stuff

The trackwork looks really good - the colouring is very effective.

Those tracks look awesome!

So how long will it take to do the whole layout?

Wow!

I couldn't do that, your dedication is amazing.

I came back to modelling very late last year and am on my third layout!!!

There are good reasons for that....

OH. I was struggling to see the relevance of posting an old picture of a Brit(?) to a model railway exhibition, then I realised. :o

Mocking up some buildings for Ranelagh Bridge, all will be replaced by laser cut kits from Intentio designs.
