Thanks for the updates Andrew and good to see those splendid HSTs still performing so well un North.
They are sadly missed down here.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The tar tankers ... were spotted on the branch hauled by Class 35 D7035

Could I ask what chassis is fitted under the Bristol and Oakbank tankers please, Andrew?

Hi Mike, well spotted!! they are kits of an undisclosed nature, I got them as part of a job lot, so have no history on them, but they are a bit more detailed than the GF ones.  There are no markings on them to indicate the manufacturer sadly.

Thanks for the kind comments, I am heading home today as I have reached the end of another 3 week stint offshore, so my updates will become a bit more sporadic! Hoping I can get home in time to enjoy a little bit of what will be left of my birthday  :beers:

I am not a particular fan of these 15t tankers, but I had a few transfers & kits, so I completed these 3 as part of my tidy up loose ends campaign



I remembered to remove the black framing lines from this one!! something I had neglected to do with some of my earlier efforts



Not particularly clear in the photo, but I have modified the frames to straddle the screws on the point motor, should hopefully sit nicely over the top.  Just need to sort out the end now... glass, full wood or mixture of both ....  :hmmm:



The last two 15t tankers were these 2 Guiness ones, I can never resist putting a prominent white component to offset the black livery :)



A gratuitous shot of the rake of Anglo Persian tankers (fore-runner to BP), I did 3 and Robbie did 3... I like to think you can't tell them apart ... but you can  :'(



During the ballasting of the track, I identified some chasm's in the baseboards, so they got plugged by DAAS



And with the welcome sight of 60009 in Perthshire again, thought it only fitting to have her pass through (on the wrong track though  :doh: )



Here she is in real life, at Gleneagles, looking north



and a fond farewell as she heads south

Belated Best Birthday wishes, Andrew. Thanks for the updates, excellent photos. and video clips.

An A4 did visit BR SR and 60009 took the "Plymouth Christmas Market" special to Plymouth, in 2018. However, I have no plans to add an A4 to my loco. collection, as fine as "Union of South Africa" looks in BR Lined Green late crest livery.

I hope with your help, Andrew, as well as Chris (Weave), amongst others, I hope that we can tie together the story of the "Tullibardine" whisky vans' journey south, including the ferry van.
