Thanks all for the kind words.

The grey sky behind the viaduct is a grey black out blind from tesco to cover the shed doors. There are a few more bits of polystyrene to fit before covering commences.

Not much modelling in the shed at the moment as I am tidying it up but I think some more trains will be operating tonight.

I've only just found this excellent layout. I certainly agree with you about etched brass frames making a major improvement. I only wish I had known about them when I kitbashed my loco. shed! I apologise that we did not know that you were participating in GWR125, last year, Graham, otherwise we would have run a special train or three to visit! 8-)

Thank you, the lack of specials will teach me for not joining the forum sooner.

I'm currently working on some station building upgrades for my other station. Although I have done close coupling work to shrink the gaps between my coaches in recent weeks. A couple of weeks time and I'm back in the shed working on scenics.

I almost forgot I've got a new engine, due to my following of Bude and Ilfracombe, pictures later in the week.

Thank you, Graham. No problem. If you like Bude, you'll love Martin's Trepol Bay as its station is inspired, partly, by Bude. (Cant Cove is inspired by a station on the Bude line but is set across the river Camel from Padstow.)

Blimey, Graham. They had everything but the kitchen sink hanging off them, and I think I might have spotted that, too :goggleeyes:

Many thanks for this. That's probably the longest model British goods train I've ever seen in a YouTube video. The two '700's look great and remind me that I really must buy one for Cant Cove! 8-)

Pretty much, one of the locos would have pulled it but would have been out of permitted loading for the loco.
Naturally they are union mills locos, great locos and we'll worth the detailling work described by (i think) noel leaver in n spirations. I have one in progress and one in plain form.

not a bad demonstration freight train for a preserved line!

great that every operable preserved wagon in Britain was hired in for the event too!

Fair point for a preserved railway I may have had to hire in a fair amount of rolling stock. Will try to put some more demonstration frieghts together.
