Ill try George, but cant promise anything. Im afraid I have to keep the team in order. They texted me last night at about 7 pm to say they were on their fourth pint! If they kept that up all night, i'll be by myself!

Cheers

Really impressed by this layout at Railex NE yesterday.  It's bigger than it looks in the photos, a proper club exhibition layout with a good team of operators making sure there was always something going on.  Some of the other layouts there seemed to be running "Sunday service" but not this one.  Many thanks to @kirky for showing me round "behind the scenes".

Lovely to meet you yesterday Richard.
Thanks for the support, much appreciated.

I trust you enjoyed Fencehouses which I hope wasn’t running Sunday services.

Just a heads up. Its our exhibition this weekend (details below). We will be running the PCF coaches on Northallerton if you want to see them. You might need to ask someone to send the excursion train round. It could be steam hauled or more likely a class 40.

Cheers

Hi Kirky,

Glad the PCF coaches arrived OK. I hadn't heard anything so presumed as was well.

You're probably there now but good luck with the show and with the competition.

Cheers weave  :beers:

@Bealman
Hi George, thank you so much for the kind words. Great to know that we have finally reached Oz.
Its about four months since my copy dropped through my letter box: is it usual for UK publications in Australia to be so late?

Cheers

No, we get them express post, but they are A$15. After a while, the newsagent drops the price to A$10! I just happened to see it peeking out on the shelf and grabbed it immediately, as I thought I'd missed that issue!

Once again, a great article. Congratulations!  :thumbsup:

Ive been having a play with turmeric.

We are in the process of building a farm. I have a few farm building which are supposed to represent modern farm building. I thought I would try and use propriety models so here I have the Severn models stable building and a couple of kestrel cow sheds. These particular buildings are supposed to be old and pretty rough shape as is often the case on a farm. I've tried to create some lichen covered roofs, using turmeric. I may have overdone it, but I wont really know until the buildings are planted on the layout. Anyway have a look and of course any criticism is always welcome. The lichen on the longer cow shed building hasn't been brushed off yet.







cheers

Turmeric? As in the stuff that comes out of the spice jar in the kitchen?

Great idea! Does it smell ok? Hope it doesn't get viewers sneezing!  :beers:

Thanks guys.
Yep its turmeric, borrowed from the spice rack in the kitchen. Just had sort of one of them moments when you catch yourself staring at the colour of roofs and thinking that looks like the colour of turmeric. And I know from cooking with it that it can be a bit of swine for staining things you dont want it to.
It does smell a bit when applying but not an unpleasant smell. Certainly a more pleasant smell than I usually have in my train room.  :goggleeyes:
