Well spotted on the Guinness tankers :)  I have some 10ft ones too

I had hoped to be posting this update from Frankfurt this morning on my way home, but got to check-in last night to find out the flight was delayed until this morning, which meant I would miss all connections to Edinburgh today.  So I will try again tonight on Air France.

An eagerly awaited delivery from Wickness bring 6 more DCC loco's to the layout





V2 4844 "Coldstreamer"



4F 44018



Class 43 in Blue/grey intercity livery - I had to buy a more modern HST Cross Country set to get one that was DCC compatible, the older ones being split chassis and not suitable.  Managed to get one at a good price and sold the body shells/middle carriage to offset the cost.



O8800 in Intercity livery



47594 in Railfreight red



08 class shunter D4019 in BR Green

The front coupler on the 4F could do with one of those little blue pills :hmmm: ;)

Unless you're going to do any front end shunting with it, it might be best removed altogether.
With kind regards

LOL. I had to think about that one for a moment! Tut tut.

Anyway, this thread is fab! Thanks Miltonrail. I have been much inspired by your benchwork and have had some useful thoughts for my own project. The shed has been transformed into a palace for your railway. Looking at all your stock I can't help thinking perhaps you should have restored an old WW2 aircraft hangar instead.  :hmmm:

Thanks for the kind comments Chris, you are not far from the truth about needing a hangar though :) 

Glad you are enjoying the thread, I am just gearing up to resume posts, so more to come

Cheers,
Andrew

Good to see you back, posting, Andrew. To answer your much earlier question a permanently coupled rake of SWB 5-plnak wagons with peeling faded paintwork and loaded with scrap rail sections with REACH WAGON: INTERNAL USE ONLY on the sides (a homemade transfer?) would solve the problem of shunting the goods shed.

The duplicate BR Crimson autocoach has arrived safely at Brian's so it's made quite a journey: Scotland, Czech Republic, Spain! [Or Perthshire, North Cornwall, Somerset!]

After a few weeks away, there were a few parcels waiting for me when I got home :)



Also got 4 loco's back from Wickness: BR Blue Class 08, BR Green Class 17, Royal Scot & 4F



Started to get the last main baseboard fixed down, this will be where the main big station is, where the mainline & branch come together



Have several long length trains to accommodate, so had an idea to use longer storage cartridges, the ones I had made previously were 1m, so I devised a way of having 2m ones... and where to store them (under fiddle yard 1)

Owing to the light, I can't see what is in the fourth box but I know it's not a class 17, Andrew :confused2:

Christmas is early (or late)
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I think as these were all sent away last year... it will fall into the Christmas late bracket :)
