Happy new all and I trust you all had a great Christmas?

This time next weekend I will most probably be supping a cold beer, as the first exhibition of 2019 is completed. Details below...



As the poster says, a nice little social gathering of like minded modellers, but with no traders. This is the third year the DEFine group have put on an exhibition, and the past 2 have been wonderful. I have been luckily enough to be invited this year. 

Hoping to have the HSTRT complete next week in readiness for the show, will be nice to give it a run out, but in the meantime I've been painting those pesky seagulls...





Cheers
Anthony

Seagulls in situ now, to the annoyance of the signaller :doh:

A wonderful day was had at the DEFine Modellers Day on Saturday (12-01-19) in Derby. SSA seemed to go down rather well with the crowd and a wonderful day was had. A massive thank you to the DEFine team for putting on a wonderful show, and putting up with a 2mm layout :D

Link to my photo album on Flickr from the day can be found here https://flic.kr/s/aHskM9hguP

A video was also made of the day. Fast forward to 12 mins to see Sutton St Annes in action https://youtu.be/-U4Ug3HkSYw

Also in other news - Yesterday, Monday 14th January was announcements day for Farish. Here is my write up that I posted on my Sutton St Annes Facebook page -

Announcement day and I'm a very happy boy. Amongst the many "wants" my highlight has to be the Provincial blue 150/1. This will look a treat on SSA. 37428 in trainload petroleum will make a very good renumbering candidate to either 418 or 421. Both very common on Club Train duties or as part of the Stanlow Petroleum loco "pool". Also Regional Railways Mk2a's (TSO to start with) After respraying a rake last year, these are not at the top of my list, but I do fancy another rake. Large Logo 47436 will come in handy for renumbering fodder also. The possibilities are endless with that one... Well done Farish, very pleased with what's been announced this year. Only issue here is, I'm going to need to build a bigger fiddle yard!!

There were many other items announced that tickled my fancy, these included the RES 47 and an IC Motorail GUV. This will be very popular, especially once Dapol release the Mk3 sleepers. Another Dutch 37 - 37046, Mainline blue 37242, 60044 in ML blue and a BR 12T departmental Rail Stores van - Nice little van that. 

Cheers
Anthony

P.S. The next outing for Sutton St Annes will be The Essex N Gauge Show, Saturday 30th March 2019 http://www.engaugeshow.co.uk/

Donkey rides now available at Sutton St Annes :) The long awaited Dapol Pacer has finally landed, but a Tyne & Wear example on a North West based layout you ask? Don't worry, it won't be staying like this for long. This will be re-worked as 142051 in MerseyRail livery. Some photos below.







And what it will become...

Are you planning a full repaint or just the stripes?

Hi Steve

No I don't plan on doing a full repaint with this one. I'm happy just to add the black and grey band, transfer and lightly weather. I know Mersey Rail used golden yellow, which was a tad darker, but to be fair I feel the Dapol colour is in between.

Cheers
