Looking good, Andrew, A few rakes of tanker wagons could be used to end the finished refined products further afield?

Thanks Chris, I will dig out some old photo's from my layout from 2009/10 (uprooted due to house move) of the tanker wagons I have, is mainly the black BP/Shell ones

Thanks, Andrew. I will look forward to seeing those. I need to check, now, if I have any black BP/Shell 4w tankers.

I found an old lead container a perfect fit into the firebox!



Only managed to get one coat on it so far, but quite pleased how it is shaping up, just need to find a smokebox door & some safety valves




I've just quickly read through several pages of this thread, looks like there's some good modelling going on.

You might find a suitable smokebox door in the N Brass Locos range - lots of interesting bits and pieces in the range.  No connection with them other than as a satisfied customer.

Thanks John, I took a quick look at the N brass locos site, a bit of a treasure trove!  thanks for the hint - got a few things on their parts list that I can use

Cheers,
Andrew

Local research suggests that there is a high demand in the Perthshire area for LPG so the refinery company (still without a name or brand) has decided to invest in a Horton sphere for LPG storage (this is more a nod to my early career when I used to regularly sample these things in Grangemouth!)

Decided to include the lattice supports (Grangemouth did not have these)

Went together quite nicely



Then a bit of rail from my Bo'Ness & Kinneil Rly Permanent Way team days to make sure it all stayed in place while the glue set!

Thanks Chris, am starting to feel a bit frustrated at not having some baseboards to put them on...... fighting off the temptation to embark on a temporary layout!  Also fidgeting a bit with the layout plans..... been tinkering with some new ideas while I was in some boring meetings today :)

I think preparing the buildings before you embark on tracklaying and the baseboards will, actually, speed things up, later, Andrew, as you'll have less time to devote to buildings, later. But having the buildings to place on the baseboard will help you to ensure that the track layout looks as you want it to.

Construction of the base unit completed, it joins the queue for weathering & other additions

Thanks Chris, I am not too happy with the paint job at the moment, got a nice finish using Tamiya primer on it, then touched it up around the walkways with a different paint (DOH!) ..... will hopefully mask it in the weathering

Cheers,
Andrew
