Someone's clearly sending too much time playing MOH rather than Bert hunting! ;)

Kenny cheers, should be some more progress at the weekend. And Bert will of course be watching closely...

Don I believe you mate, thousands wouldn't...! :P

Well yesterday saw a successful visit to Lincoln for the railway fair, I managed to liberate a surprisingly cheap (£14) motorised hornby turntable, some rolling stock, oh and a very nice, reasonably priced little Railfreight Hornby 37. Also got some 'set dressing' to bring the station to life once it's done, luggage carts, freight items and such. The deltic has some new traction tyres awaiting fitting, I've some buffers to replace the ones knocked off some of the rolling stock many moons ago, So really I got some of the shopping list I set out with as well as a few extras!
The new arrival

Taking a spin with some of the new rolling stock

And meeting its far older brother. Who will no doubt scare the poor thing with tales of it's new owner's atrocious driving abilities!
Image
Sorry the photos are a bit ropey compared to normal, I had to use my camera phone as the Eos 350's battery was flat. Bert didn't deign to appear in these shots either- I'm not going to make his excuses, but all I'll say is I knew getting the pub out of its box and sitting it on the layout all day yesterday while I was out was a bad idea!

No mate, as I said he wasn't in the photos of the new arrivals. He was in The Swan Inn at the time, getting merry on whatever it is hornbills drink! :)

Good news from home, apparently one of the 3 parcels I'm hoping for from members of this parish this week has arrived. Don't know which, as mrs doesn't dare open it. Exciting times though!

An exciting week at the newly named Goatbridge this week, due to new arrivals and much tracklaying!
First new arrival (courtesy of Jimmy77) was a nice little class 45. After replacement metal couplings, a replacement buffer, a clean and a bit of sympathetic weathering it was into service:
Image
Next arrival (thanks to ollieollieollie) was a little tri-ang 0-6-0. it was given a lube, cleaned, repainted buffer beams, renumbered slightly and given new BR crests before being put to work. Here it meets 47606(!)
Image
Works still have to fit the front numbers though... :roll:
Image
Third arrival for the week was (thanks to Foo) a rather nice Castle Class, transferred from GWR Penebsingston depot.
Image
Which brought with it a nice tender for my better half's Hall class :)
This week's tracklaying has mostly centred round finishing the station tracks, installing the second load of sidings and getting the turntable operational for the diesels to huddle round. This was made possible by the acquisition of more track, partly from a local chap retiring from selling such things and partly from Jimmy77 again. Many thanks J!
First stage was the turntable, seen here being tried for size by a steam interloper!
Image
Next a spur for the fuelling depot was added
Image
And pretty soon all the diesels (and the electric Frenchman) had a home
Image
The GWR locos have staged a takeover of the steam shed though...
Image
Leaving the poor little (!) 9F out in the cold!
Image
At the other end of the layout, the large sidings are in and the freight depot has indeed found an elsewhere to be.
Image
All the above activity meant Bert didn't have time to skulk off to the pub this week. He found a vantage point to watch developments from... ;)

fratton, the aircraft are a Shackleton and a Hunter, as id'd a couple of pages back!

Cheers, I feel it's starting to come alive now. There's still some tweaking to do on the station track and the sidings before I'm totally happy, then there's the inner loop to complete, before planting some scenery. Busy times ahead... :)
