The Farish War office tank wagons weren't used to carry expolosives - they were used for carrying Benzole - also known as motor spirit

As they carry a Class A product - flash point below 23C (73F) - they'd need barrier wagons at both ends. Vans or opens would be used depending on what was available but opens were more common;

One thing I would say is just solder resister to the same leg  +ve or -ve on all the LED's. No real reason but it will  possibly look a little neater that way  ;) and may help wiring if you add more LED's  :)

Like Dr Al, I keep all my locos in their original boxes which are then stored in Really Useful mobile drawer units.

Usually laid on their sides so I can find what I'm looking for pretty quickly. It's not caused a problem so far.

I’m actually fairly indifferent, I think I’ve got 7 350s, was merely observing a reason I think the first batch sold slowly and why I anticipate the TPE batch being the same.

Particularly when you could pick up a 350 for around £100 and a set of Electra Rail vinyls for £18.00. I think the RTR one might struggle, particularly as they will have been replaced by the new 397s when the model appears.

I like to see my stock on display on the layout.  The ones that I haven´t space for I keep in Mill Lane sidings cassettes which I think are excellent and I enjoyed building.

I've done white primer inside my buildings. I was thinking about card 'rooms' as well.

I'm also looking to hook the room lighting up to an Arduino. I've got a rudimentary program that runs a 'railway clock' at four times normal speed and can switch LEDs on and off according to the time of day. I need to work on that so that it can control more than eight LEDs though.... I know what I need to do with the Arduino Sketch to make that happen...

That sounds good.  Ive not considered using an Arduino for lighting. I have a couple of  Arduinos kicking around and want to do a raising barrier to allow access to a private siding.  I’ve got some code, which needs tweaking, but the basics are there.
I hope that, in the new year, you can get your house move sorted and get back to normal (whatever that may be).

Most locos spend months on their sides in their original packaging before purchase, so no qualms there.

I use KR Multicase with stock on its side. For locos I put strips of overhanging freezer bag plastic into the tray slots to make removal easier.
