Madmack, just noticed your GUV up the page.. That looks pretty good to me pal.. Seen quite a few of them at York in the past and have to say they never looked clean from what I can remember!! :D

Hi Shaun, like what you done to the Stobart cab, bit of imagination there.. Top quality.

And Numbnuts I likethose vee tankers. Have a small rake of them in plain grey myself, look the biz powdered up like that. Good work squire. Whats the next step you planning then?
Oh and can you believe a guy I work with got upset with me and walked out because I referred to him as numbnuts!!!

Well my next step having sold our flat is to mive in to rented for a few months while i am waiting fingers crossed to go work for direct rail services and head up to cheshire. Then i can start on my layout once we have a nice attic space . Having got nearly all my track which is around 200ft of flexi track and 40 sets of points. .. Once the house is sorted look out for a new thread. Untill then i am weathering more stock

They had a trainee position available a while back, train jobs are like gold dust up this neck of the woods. Always keeping my eyes peeled for any in this area. :)

Are there any step by step guides to weathering. Would love to do my 08 but I have no idea where to start - I'd like it to look like this.

Hi Dave

start with a picture of a real loco not another model - especially one that has generic weathering - class 08's dont really look like that when they get dirty.

My weathered class 22 models. The Dapol/Kernow one came ready weathered and I decided to weather my Silver Fox version (on Bachmann class 20 chassis) to match. The real giveaway for my kit-built version is that I haven't flush-glazed the side windows.
