The NGF Wagon Tour reached North Carolina today.  Along with the December issue of Model Rail, the parcel was in my mailbox when I got home.  That makes it a good day.
 :thumbsup:


(A great day would've been my Bubble cars from Hattons in there too.  Three weeks and counting!  Why do things take so long to get here from Liverpool???) ???

Anyway, I have just spent the last few weeks ::) wiring up my signals and I'm about ready for something different.  I will take some pictures of the wagons at the weekend. :camera:

The NGF Wagon Tour has reached Reading General, housed at home in North Carolina USA.









I tried to take a video with my old camera... the auto focus is bad and it's very grainy, but here you can see 47 035 leave Platform 5 of Reading General, with a Class 108 5-car DMU arriving at Platform 9.  Then what all the trainspotters have been waiting for, the NGF wagon tour passes by at the back of Platform 10 on its way East...

Sadly as my layout is distinctly unscenic, there isn't much to see, but the wagons have enjoyed a couple of days bustling round the layout behind Western Consort.

Cookiescrumble is next on the list.  I will get the packaged up and off early next week (it's Thanksgiving here so the PO will be shut the rest of this week).

Mark.

Great layout Mark, and bigger than I remembered.  Nice one!  I'll try and watch the video later tonight. :thumbsup:

Cracking layout and great to see the NGF containers behind a Western :thumbsup: What do you intend with the station, Mark. Scratchbuilt, Metcalfe, Ratio, Peco???

What do you intend with the station, Mark. Scratchbuilt, Metcalfe, Ratio, Peco???

I will have to scratchbuild the station/ticket hall.  I plan to make the platforms from the Scalescenes kits and probably use Ratio canopies, but the station building will be scratchbuilt for sure.  I have a small bundle of bits including brick paper, etched windows and canopy roof-lights, to make the station/ticket hall and a bunch of photos to go by too.

Much of the town will end up being scratchbuilt... the one I'm looking forward to is the Metal Box building (or Queen's House as it is officially known), it is a big rail-side landmark as you pull in and out of the station so it will be a centre piece.

I just saw the video - superb layout!  I'm VERY jealous of your RailTrack Autoballasters.  When are you going to sell them to me?!!   :smiley-laughing:  Have you got a picture of them?

Hi Tank,  I'm short on time today to post the pics on Photobucket, but here's a link to my autoballasters.  They were a great project to do from the NGS kits.

They look really good, and I like the weathering.  :)  Not for sale I take it.... ;) :thumbsup:

Not for sale I'm afraid.  I love them too much and the hours of care it took, I am just too attached.  Aren't they coming out in Farish soon?  I can recommend the NGS kits though, they are really well designed and easy to do.

I did that!



Cracking photos Mark, and I see you have a wealth of blue-grey stock there so my old Mk1 restaurant should feel quite at home there!
