Blimey !!! thats one heavy piece of weathering on the track front there Dave!

Are you going for the extreme oil dripped looked ballast? because i think you have hit it on one there mate!

Nice start on the shed as well, Im guessing it's a 3 road depot?

I will, just as soon as it has dried. If you're really nice, you might get a tutorial.

Well, the coal load has been scrapped. It didn't dry properly, and I reckon the coal was too coarse.

So, tonight, I've been working away again, utilising a sieve and, of all things, a colander, to get a small bag of finely ground coal. I reckon there's enough to do two loads, but it shouldn't be too hard to make more.
What sort of glue do you reckon I should use? Last time I used 60:40 PVA:Water, with more than a bit washing up liquid. Does this sound strong enough?

Thanks,
Dave.

Hi Dave! :D Just caught up with this thread. Lovin' the layout btw. The method you used for the coal load looked like it might turn out nice, sry to hear that it didn't.
Love the 37 too, does it run ok?

Yeah, the 37 runs nicely. Quite a slow top speed though, but I'm sure that won't bother most.

Forgot to mention a few things...

This saturday could see a trip to the Viaduct. I reckon I'll be able to encorporate a few shots of 6201 going over Shap as well.

The coal load is by no means abandoned. I have one drying as we speak.

Late last night, I stumbled across a picture of 37408 in Large Logo livery, dated 1994. Using Fotopic, I've come up with three pictures which show it lasted in this condition till after Christmas 1998. Personally, I reckon that's quite an achevement, so much so, I'm gonna model it.

I've been hard at work on the shed, I've got the track down, and preparing to stick the building together.

G'day PT

How does that HST perform. Does it the Hornby 5 Pole or something else?

Cheers

Hi,
It struggles a bit, to be honest. Having said that, it is slow, noisy, and quite jerky. As far as I know, it's a Hornby three pole motor inside.

Hope this helps,
Dave.
