It would be a pretty awesome thing if you teamed up with Colin Heard to offer the lined version of City of Truro when ordered from him.

Oi! No queue jumping!

I used Railmatch for the greys and Phoenix precision for the yellow - the black is Humbrol. :)

Yours is fine and I must get it back to you! The tender tray/keeper plate was looking a little fragile where the drawbar attaches, but I can replace this with a new tray (I bought a few of them a while back).

Fantastic work, as ever, on the Rebuilt Jubilee. You can barely tell that you've lengthened the wheelbase by six inches, or that you've made the driving wheels half an inch taller.

Superb.

Before the latest updates, a query for those who know about DCC...


I bought this Dapol 9F as part of a job lot - it needed some valve gear repair and a new coal load, both of which it's had and it now runs nicely. My question - it's certainly DCC ready, but is this an actual DCC chip installed or just a blanking chip?:



Thanks for any advice and wisdom!


The two 27s are now complete - I know the liveries aren't to everyone's tastes, but I rather like them...








A slight change in scale - here's a OO Gauge Southern 01 Class I'm working on. It's a resin kit - not a style I've worked with before. The casting is dreadful so it's needed a lot of scraping, sanding and filling to get the bodywork even halfway reasonable. Not looking brilliant at the moment, but more detailing and another coat of primer should work wonders!:



More soon! :)

That's just a blanking plate. Decoders have many more components on the board, usually on both sides, and often (but not always) shrink-wrapped.

Ah, I see! Thanks very much - it'll be for sale so I didn't want to advertise it incorrectly! :)

Aaaaaaaand… he's back. Holiday, work deadlines, family commitments and general life stuff have kept me away from the workbench of late, but I've managed to sneak in a bit of workbench time here and there...

Here's just some of what's on the go...


A Britannia becomes 70015 "Apollo" and kitbuilt saddletank, A3 and class 03 get some paint:





An HST goes GWR and two 25s go Dutch...:





Somewhere under all that masking tape is a Lima Deltic and a Farish 47:





70015 "Apollo", finished:





Two finished Warships - "Tiger" and "Hercules":







Much, much more on the go - I'll get more photos soon (when I'm not frantically fixing/repainting them!!) ;)

Nice to see you back, I was starting to get worried.

Excellent work as ever there. As you may have gathered from the PM's I'm still looking for a reasonably priced Duchess for you. I'll get there events.
