Thought I'd update this thread as its been a while, and lots of progress has happened with new station building faces. canopy ect...

So heres some new images from may, and hopefully soon I'll have the Dukedog running again after its failiar at wenchford in early march, o2 tank should be operation this month, along with the T1 shortly after so a few new locos soon to be seen and hit the track.

In a few weeks I hope to purchase a Battle of Britian class loco, re built, and convert it to Archibald sinclair.

Heres some images from the month so far.

Indeed I agree!

The o2 yes is a Wills white metel kits, i changed the running chassis to brass as it was stronger than the white metal one it had before.
The dukedog started off as a Bull dog city of truro, i brought off ebay, and i brought a Dean Goods mainline loco, and took it appart, and changed the boiler, changed the chimmley, and modified the smoke box support saddle with bits of plastic and filed it in to shape.

And the number ok its wrong but least it has the right name lol.

Back scenes were made by me, from my own photo of a sky, to my own landscape painting scanned in which some pictures of trees added on, and then printed off. So its my own design of back ground as im always on a budget this was free and i could do what i want :)

All this is on my main forum Thread on Layouts under construction.
