A very nice man by the name of Richard - www.roads-and-rails.co.uk. is his website . I think he's very reasonably priced with a good turn round time. Got some unusual vehicles for sale too-stuff nobody else has got !!

Hello!
Very nice!! Your choice of equipment make sense. Not like just a random purches. BNSF's and BN!!
Coal mine and hoppers!!  Simple things but we as modellers somehow hard to do this since so many attractive models out there. A lot of us end up with cars that don't fit on the layout scenario.
I just would like to complement your choice of purchase.
Also, I love the look of the BN switcher. The Weathering man did such a wonderful first class job!!
How are you doing with the Mining company kit?
Please share with us when you ready.
I can't to wait seeing that how all of these stuff coming together on your layout.
Thank you for sharing!!

Finally got a bit of time to myself and my hobby today -work and complete revamp of the garden have been eating all my time up ( and im nowhere like finished yet !!!) -plus keeping my better half happy with trips away and shopping ! Three light coats of hycote matt black on the inside of the model -so as to keep the inside reflections down -and a good bask in the southport sun to help it set should help speed up the job -hoping to get some coats on the outside 3 different makes of grey primer -just lightly sprayed on randomly shud give the look what im after ????? Then we can start building it up and weathering it ! Keep watching .

Its warm out there -added the greys too !

Not much time tonight to play -but I had to have a play at doing the panel lines on the building -dont think it looks too bad -but weathering will bring them out or mute them down .Either way this was a quick job -the main building will take longer and take more care required matching up the edges. The other part is the conveyor housing that goes from the main building to the slack bin. Easy peasy 4 bits and some glue ! Cut a load more parts from the sprues and cleaned them up ready for construction as well .

Two more Internet bargains ! Having a mainline running in front of the mine means ive got to have the odd passing train going through -so as to keep the interest going on !  Nothing too grand-the odd mixed freight should do . To be honest I wouldn't mind an idea or two from anybody who can help please ?
