I find Jubilees or Scots hack into quite good Nelsons in lined Maunsell olive, have to ditch the 6 wheel tenders though and replace with a nice 8 wheeler either Minitrix or Union Mills drives, the latter with an extra pair of wheels.

Soooo, I had a couple of weeks' holiday and a week to myself during that time... so I treated myself to a little self-indulgent layout time (been doing lots of locos too but pics of them to come!)

The test track comes on apace...

Its looking good, and it gives those poor LMS engines that should be in Crimson that you keep painting on other colours a break too :)

Layout update...

Got some more wall-work, scenery and ballasting done, in between having to cut into sections of the cork tiling and re-glue them because the "super strength tile adhesive" has failed and they're lifting off the baseboard... :censored:



The hilltop in place - all looking a bit grey at the moment, but there will be a little leafy village here soon!






Loco servicing siding









View across the station platform to the bridge and town - first shops and houses glued in place!





The whole thing - lots to do yet!

It's ALLWAYS a bit worrying when you start to do the scenery ,At
first it ALLWAYS looks an absolute mess then it gradually takes shape and you start to see what you had in your mind when you first started .The great thing I've found with the scenery is it usually looks better IF you do make a mistake and it doesn't look right when it dries  but then you go over it again it turns out even better because you get a variation in the colouring so it looks more natural.
The trouble with my layout is I had an accident and knocked over a bottle of liquid flux and its spoilt the look of my yard and I just can't seem to get it back to what it was as the flux is reacting with the scatter and turning it a whitish colour I might end up doing the whole yard area again .
But  anyway yours is coming along nicely so don't spill liquid flux on it.

I think this is a shoo-in for the title "Most Over-stretched Use of the Term 'Test Layout' in a Domestic Context, 2016'! It is becoming more detailed and elaborate than many an exhibition layout...

I look forward to your 'proper' layout with eager anticipation!

Good work. Keep it up!
