That's the wagons, except mine were Roco models. I picked them up cheap and intended to convert them into tank transporter wagon but never go round to it.

Some good progress this afternoon with the scenery. All that was yellow is now white.
Well almost. Just the strip on the left hand side to do to not it into the wooded area. I probably want get around to that until tomorrow evening as tomorrow I've promised to take Julia to Bluewater dress shopping, while there slip away for a couple of hours to the Gravesend Model Railway Show.

It's a curiosity in this hobby how we can spend hours working on the smallest of details that, to all but the most keenest of eye and knowledgable viewer, would go unnoticed.

This morning I've been working on one such item. In this case the munitions wagons that serve the Railgun. These wagons housed the charges, casings and propellent for the gun. These were assembled within the wagon before being delivered to the gun via a small trolley that was mounted on rails that ran though each wagon.

The past couple of hours have been taken up with added end doors and access bridges to the wagons.

A few shots of the Karl-Gerat Train on the bridge.

Busy weekend with other stuff, so very little progress on the layout. However the K5 Train is steadily moving forward. The Railgun built is almost done. Just the final bits of detail to do and it'll be ready for painting.

The K5 Railgun has been tried and tested and works. Mounted on two 6-axle wagons its tolls freely and will negotiate peco radius 2 curves without any problems.

I'm very happy with the result. It's turned out a lot better then I expected.

Next stage is to get it painted.

A short video clip of the business part of the K5 Train.

This is a test run over part of the to check for any issues with the gun barrel overhang on the curves. All looks fine against the current stock.

The one that does concern me is the Karl-Gerats. The K5 and the mortars are the largest larges items of stock on the layout, and if there's a clash, it'll be between these two. But as I'm still working on the Karl wagons chassis, it's going to be a few more weeks before finding out.

Sadly the video clip doesn't seem to work.  :(

Anyway, while I work out why, you have a look at this little lot that arrived from the Czech Republic this morning. I'm looking forward to the next train built.

It did for me - I clicked on the little box and it downloaded a Quicktime video to my desktop.

Eurythmics?
