well, technically you called it first I suppose...!
I'm thinking if the mods allow it there may be a small prize of a wagon for who gets the most correct first calls on Bert by the end of the year...

It'll be an OO freight item, just because that's what my layout's being built in! I'll look for something appropriate at Lincoln this weekend. Don't get too excited, it'll probably just be a little coal truck or something. It is just for a bit of fun after all... :)

Always nice to see another layout start coming to life especially in my nearby vicinity (I'm just down road from York you see...) Will be watching this one.
Jas.... :D

near enough isn't it, as long as it's in God's county! Intending to be at the show, as long as the jet stays serviceable and doesn't throw any wobblies I'll be there :)

Fairly busy day today. Got some paint slapped around on the board which was quite therapeutic after the joys of work all week. The coal drop is also fixed down now, and has it's track connected.
Image
The preserved steam shed has its 'concrete' floor, and a bit of ballasting done. Forgot how much fun that is. Not.
Image
While waiting for things to dry I sent the 0-6-0 for a trundle
Image
And the Frenchman too
Image
With works in progress the 9F was pressed into service on the engineering train
Image
And after an offer they couldn't refuse from a chap who just happened to have some tarmac going spare, the preserved steam shed volunteers now have a car park
Image
9F and 0-6-0 together
Image
And I got artistic with a view of the BR logo on my ancient 37, through the space between the chassis and boiler of the 9F.
Image
On a more practical note, the cow ramp now has fencing and a gate
Image
And after finding a serviceable set of points I forgot I had, the small freight yard has had a re-jig. The goods shed will have to find an elsewhere to live, probably when I get onto the inner loop.
Image
Finally a view from the coal drop wall.
Image
I was also amazed to find he buffer missing off the Deltic, and the one missing off the 37, in my bag of salvaged ballast from my layout of 20 years ago. Result!
That's this week's update, off to Lincoln tomorrow to see what goodies I can acquire.
Remember, Bert's in one of the photos above. Somewhere... ;)
