Rhys' mid/late 90's Scrap terminal *what I'm up to now pg13*

Postby British Rail » Sat Jul 14, 2007 12:32 pm

Hi guys , well I thought I had better start a thread! I'm working on a mid/late 90's scrap terminal, I've been making lots of scrap from old wagons cararama cars of the correct period etc. I've also repainted my gronk, I'm sure you all remember it in EWS livery? Well that's no more because I sprayed it in Engineers yellow then faded it, you will also notice I've converted the loco to 4 lights not 12, moreover basicly gave it the full works with only minor jobs to do e.g., fit a sound decoder (hmm limited space in a gronk but it can be done), fit windscreen wipers, paint the lights silver and red or fit a lighting kit. Here are some pics for you, please excuse the blurry ones I coudn't be bothered to dig out the tripod,

Well I've gone over the gronk in the same colour of yellow to tone the oil and rust down a bit, pics will follow soon.


Kindest Regards,

Hello there fellas! Finished work early this afternoon so I'm very happy! I'm even happier when the missus says I can go and work on the layout! Well The track is down, filler drying, paint drying. Pictures later! I'm thinking of having the terminal a very early EWS scrap terminal with old RfD signs. I would be able to have my sectorisation, minimal BR blue locos and EWS, with very early privitisation!

That sounds Great Rhys, really does!!
I would personally go for era 1996 - the Year EWS was formed!
There you can have your early Privitisation, Sectorisation and BR Blue locos. Remember though if you do go for this then you wouldn't find any EWS locos carrying the livery as this came in the mid 1997.

Hope this helps mate and will look forward to those pics :wink:

Best Regards

Adam

Sounds great Rhys, since this is a scrap terminal I take it there'll be scrap wagons. Looking for pics of them shows up alot of EWS liveried ones, no models available though :( Hopefully Bachmann will wake up soon and release some!
