I think your rock face has turned out superbly. Excellently painted. :beers:

I agree, excellent work; reminds me, though, that I really need to do more work on my rockfaces. The static grass looks excellent, too. I will order my static grass 'kit' in May ready for use in June. Coming along very well indeed.

Have you tried running a 2-6-2T around the track in addition to running an 0-6-0PT?
Yes, my old black WR prarie is fine as are all my UM locos (4-4-0 and 0-6-0). Plus my Hymek and Bubble Car are no problem.
Iíll post another video once Iíve completed a bit more scenery.

Weíve been busy today with grocery shopping then taking delivery of a load of manure at the allotment.
On returning home, we found that our two tortoises have woken from 12 weeks hibernation (no doubt roused by the sudden increase in temperature today). Ideally they should really have slept for another two weeks but heyho.  So.....that meant that we had to get them organised in their Spring time home in the conservatory prior to going outdoors in May or June (depending on the weather).
Anyway, this evening, Iíve shaped the remaining foam hill sections and given them a light coating of tile grouting. Hopefully that will dry overnight,

I like the rock faces very much. I have some cork bark which is very thick and curved and difficult to work.
We've had some warmer weather the last few days and my wife is thinking about putting me out for a while! She says I'll be allowed in at nights. :worried:
