Good evening
A couple more Tilt Bridge photos, I have pretty much finished the lattice sides, it just needs the central lattice piece. I am thinking of looking for suitable plastic gaskets to form this. Otherwise its nearly there, a little bit of painting left on side walls etc, and suitable capping for the walls to be made from modelling putty.

Sorry, no Royal train, only a ballast train - although you could count 47541 "The Queen Mother" as a Royal loco!

Yes very very very good. I'm very familiar with Blair Athol, being a native of Perth, I was up in the village regularly. There would be no doubt where you are modelling upon seeing your bridge.

Excellent, keep it coming!

Good evening,

and hope everyone had a good May Day bank holiday? Mine was productive, in that I demolished the remains of an old shed and took it to the recycling centre (a garden shed, and not the remains of 66048 if you were wondering...), but unfortunately little modelling done. In fact little done during April at all as I was in the US for much of it, though have wired in a few more point motors this week.

I have managed to start painting the main station building, hopefully I have got the colours reasonably accurate from photos I took on a visit last year.

A few things to finish off, including the canopy, plus painting the window frames, down-pipes etc.

Cheers,
Paul

Evening,

Quite a lot of progress this weekend, and some interesting photos taken, but something seems to have happened to with the site thats making it really difficult to upload anything. I am struggling to put anything on the site at all :(

Please let me see if you can see the below picture

Certainly can. Very rusty.

What I've found is that the picture uploads ok, but the server then hangs. I ended up with six of the same pic the other day through retrying.

Hi,

Yes, I have had the same problem with the server hanging up, managed to upload this one though, so don't know what's going on. Perhaps I will try tomorrow, hopefully this is not a permanent problem.

I have managed to get a bit more scenery done, adding in some more layers of scatter material and a bit of experimentation with static grass. Also borrowed the goods shed from Achnasheen - as you should be able to see on the previous post - although this was shortened down a bit to fit in the available space on what is quite a small model. I have only three tortoise motors to wire and fit now, will get on with that tonight, and hopefully post a few more pictures later in the week.

Sorry, the PVA isn't quite dry in this photo!

This is going to be a lovely looking layout. The foreground in this last picture is particularly effective. :greatpicturessign:
