That is excellent.
The weathering shows up so well in B&W.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

i agree

excellent shots of the hst on the viaduct, atmospheric. i remember the steel and coal trains to llanwern / abertawe, and seeing photos of heavy coal trains with 2 or 3 x class 37s

Not sure how I haven't come across this stunning layout before. BR Blue & South Wales had me hooked on it. Scenery & modelling are awesome.

Bookmarked the thread as on lunch at the moment to enjoy reading this thread from the start. No apologies for resurrecting this thread from July :beers:
