It turns out that the Lune Waterside Viaduct is falling down, and as a result, the whole has been fenced off and is under repair. I discovered this while out to take some detailed pictures as part of my 13th birthday treat.
I also had the chance to test out my new "Gorillapod", which is very, very cool.
I've also also got a new Class 37, this time of the ViTrains variety.

No, but I really cannot wait to get the viaduct started. I can just never quite get going. But I do have some quite nice photos of 6201 at Greenholme.

No, I scrapped that on page 6. I used a slightly differant glue mixture, and also graded the coal more carefully. The result looks brilliant.
I actually forgot to put the magnet in, but I think I can live with it. I've used tin foil instead of clingfilm to protect the wagon too.

I like it how the TV in the back ground said "Oh my God" when you tipped the wagon.
Yer good I am certainly having a go at that.

Agree with Martin on that one: it was an inspired piece of accidental film making :) The Coal looks excellent and, if you don't mind, I may have to adopt a similar method myself when I eventually get around to fitting my waggons with coal inserts...probably somewhere around October 2017, though I can't promise that the soundtrack will be as good! ;)

Hiya Mr PTmodeller Where did you get the Transrail HEA from ?

Is it Bachmann or Replica ?


Cheers.

Marc.

It's a Bachmann model, and i've bought a rake of six, one by one, from eBay.

I've spent the weekend trying to wire the thing up, and have got reasonably far, even having the chance to give the board a repaint into three tone grey. If ya want pictures, say so.
