Andrew

I've tried various of these mini cameras for on board videos including one that is like a USB stick. The batteries seem very fragile and two of them have failed on me so far. I suspect that they need to be charged up on a regular basis, but someone on this forum may know better how to look after them. On board cameras are great fun and well worth persevering with.

Iíve had a play around with a mini camera on a wagon and it is actually good fun. Gives an interesting perspective on your railway. And.....shows up any anomolies very clearly!

There was a rush of photographic interest to capture a shot of a special to the South West of a gleaming LNER Apple Green B17 "Barnsley" at the head of a short rake.  It would take the train as far as York, where is was scheduled to be replaced by a similar liveried B1.



I got a new addtion to my sign gallery :)



I have a friend who keeps me informed about interesting traffic through Gleneagles, this longhaul special (inverness - Cardiff) came through at the start of April...... off topic I know  :-[  but kind of related!

Thanks for those photos Andrew.
I do like the way the scenery is developing in the first photo.

Thanks Martin, definitely looks better with the platform down, even if it is the oversize one for now. I think I will start putting some flock down on the areas I have painted brown, if only the base layer.

Should have also said when I was on the bridge at Gleneagles, could hear the locos coming from a long way off! Totally different to the normal trains passing through which you generally see before you hear!

Some other projects on my workbench ... started to build some NGS horsebox kits, in a special livery for them as they will be privately owned by Jim FInch and will be used to transport his growing stud of racehorses to the various meetings around the country.  1st coat shown here, applied using air brush ... but not quite the finish I was looking for.



In amongst an assortment of auction wins was a couple of white metal kits, one for a rectangular tar tanker and the other a gas tank wagon .. I seem to have a growing number of these now, so might finish this one in grey ... here is the various components that need assembled. 









I have sunk in the Gabbion basket arrangement, will persevere with it and see if it look ok once landscaped in ....



Components glued and a coat of primer.  Will sort out the gaps with some filler, then another coat of primer







Also continued working on the diorama for the miners ...  added some walls that I can start to build up the cavern around



Rough addition of some DAS clay to start building up the walls.

Thanks Caz, my line of unfinished kits is a lot longer than the finished kit line  :)

Thanks for the latest updates, Andrew. Always good to see Mark 1s in WR Chocolate & Cream livery. I hope the platform shown was completed to your satisfaction. The metal kit wagons and horseboxes look interesting.
