Great stuff as ever Di. The Warship looks good without the yellow warning panel and some of us are old enough to remember them running like that.
The layout always impresses me as does the quality of your video work.
I've tried one tonight of Trepol Bay but can't match your videoing quality I'm afraid.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks for another very good video, Diane. The Green "Warship" looks very good on the train of mineral wagons with the brown (vacuum-brake fitted) wagons correctly marshalled all behind the loco.

Hello,
I enjoy reading your layout progress very much. I'm very impressed about the scenery. Especially around train station area.
Excuse me for my ignorance but I saw round thing under the switches on earlier photo. What is it and what is it for?
Thank you very much for sharing such a inspirational work!!
Best regards with my annoying moving signature.

It is a disc of light card, as I mount Peco point motors directly to the point/switch the disc of card goes between the 2 and allows me to ballast the area without ballast and glue fouling up the motor.

The Second of the 5 BDA kits is now awaiting a visit to the paint shop, the other 3 are waiting on the missing parts from the kits to be replaced,but as the missing parts are not major I will continue to build them.

Question:- as the NGS shop is out of stock of the transfers for these has anyone have a source of transfers for these wagons preferably BR/BR railfreight.

Today I suffered my first case of the dreaded Farish split gear syndrome, one of my early Class 42 Warships fell foul of it, after a bit of a strip down and a talk to the nice man at BR lines I am eagerly awaiting a package of spares to arrive (new gears and as the NGS seem to be taking their time replacing the missing springs from their kits some springs.).

Talking of Kits I also built the 4th BDA.

First BDA out-shopped in railfreight livery. Still no transfers found  :whiteflag: so a little judicious use of white paint for now.

Hello Di,

I caught up with your layout from the start last week while on holiday, keep up the good work  :thumbsup:

Your building from card etc has got me looking for some idea's outside of the pre-fab.

I should not take time off from work I go to Model shops and spend money, in this case lots of money I bought 2 new Dapol Westerns shown in the video below, I also bought a Dapol B set in maroon to go with my Dapol Pannier Tank and 5 Collet coaches to go with my NGS Full Brake, I will post another video of them later or tomorrow.
