Naughty Rails are having a Bachmann clear out. Some cracking bargains on there. I'm £305 lighter now for 4 new tender locos. Can't say no to that!

Don't the rules state that the wonderful booty obtained at bargain rates has to be listed?

(I won't be tempted because it's the Oxford N7 in BR black that suits me.)

Does it?
Anyway I got an LNER liveried O4 and lined LNER K3, an LMS liveried 3F and 4F. Postage counted for £7.50 which was a bit of a supprise. I expected it to be a flat £4 like Hattons, but theirs goes up when the quantity does.

Not seen much mention if any of Topcashback here - works on the web site referral system the same as adverts and you get a percentage back of your purchase from any web site, subject to certain limitations such as a maximum on the monies refunded and use of discount codes on the web site, linked through Topcashback (I presume they keep a slice as there are no catches involved). Model railway wise seems pretty limited but you do normally get 1.01% back on ebay purchases (sometimes at weekends its higher) and when you decide its time for a payout you can get a further credit on various e-gift cards (i.e. my accumulated £8.98 turned into a £9.52 M&S e-gift card) If you join by this link https://www.topcashback.co.uk/ref/mike_p before 10am next Monday you should receive a £5 virtual prepaid Mastercard when you have accumulated £10

Mix 'n' match every shade under the sun! Absolutely everything! I am even using in my airbrush (with some reasonable results) but mostly for major scenery like......

I haven't seen it (yet), but as you say 'Any shade of green helps'.

Mix it in with other greens Very tiny dots of yellows, blues and even less whites and even less red. Then hide it in brown earth colour powders/tea until around 50% is covered.

Will try that thanks,

I have been drinking peppermint tea recently. I save the bags to dry out instead of throwing them in the bin

I finished one box already and have quiet a bit of green foliage saved up from it

Just opened the bag to see what the contents is like and it looks alright, I would say useful for woodland floor area and probably bushes if stuck to scouring pads (which I also picked a pack of 10 and cut to strips still got 4 pads to cut up yet)

Here are some close ups of the moss
