I don't trust double slips since I almost wrecked my 158. All those points...

Sorry to hear that. And it looked so great. :(

Let us hope the rest of the world's rivers retain their watertightness.

Edit- what did u coat it with?

The Control Panel unfolds.....

This will be one of an eventual possible three- one controlling double slips, this one for the Depot and potentiually another one for the yard isolating sections.

It's got an extra arch and pillar know, the first arch is fabricated, the others are cut out.

Looking good - particularly like the coal loads you produced a few pages back -- and the weathering of that loco looked pretty damn good. I still can't decide whether to have a bash myself on a loco, or just get them done by someone else... hmmm... perhaps I shd practice some more on old wagons...

Buy an old Lima- that 31 cost £20. Cheap Lima stuff coming out of your ears on Ebay!

Just a quick update to say some ballasting been done, tunnel mouth just needs painting, viaduct is progressing- slowly. So far the 3D shell of three arches and one piller has been done.

Thanks
