Excellent Pete, hopefully not too long before the Tullibardine vans are seen at various locations around the network

Thanks Chris, I put some more info on the Alternative Cornwall thread for Perthshire

I guess if they're used for that traffic repeatedly, they'll gradually become silver once more...

A Railtrack liveried Class 121 was spotted at Auchterarder - duties vary from lineside inspection to driver training and occasional timetable gap filling!



Rule one fully in play here as a rake of Milwaukee Rd coaches is seen being prepared for a whisky railtour for American visitors - the idea was set up by Rusty Ryan, a prominent American who has settled in Perthshire and his desire to see some rolling stock old favourites on the rails here..... whilst having others cover the costs  8)











Some other bargains picked up at Model Rail also make their debut on the rails - I already had the Evans wagon from Bachmann's collector club from last year, but they were dishing out another one free if you renewed at the stand, so it felt rude not to take them up on the offer (and my membership was due to expire the following weekend!) :thumbsup:



Also at Model Rail, I bought a 3 pack of JNA falcon loads ... here are the 2 wagons I own, loaded up and sitting in a siding at Tullibardine....

Iíve not seen a 121 in that livery before.
Very smart.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I have a growing backlog of Robbies tanker transfers to progress, both the 10T ones and the tar tankers ... so I bit the bullet and started to prepare the kits I had, will need to get a few more though to complete the job



... a little bit more ordered



Here they are glued and the raised horizontal band removed from the seam as recommended by Robbie.  Next step will be to fill the gaps with plastic putty and prep them for transfers



Here are the wagon loads I bought at Model Rail - nice range of products from 10 Commandments .... what to do with the 3rd one though ....  :hmmm:

I bought some ballast wagon loads from Ten Commandments and glued a small block of wood underneath so by pressing on one end the load could easily be removed. Since then, instead I've been gluing a small metal washer underneath so they can just be hoisted out with a magnet :D

Thank you Derek, it does look nice in that livery... I head back home from work today for a short spell at home, so will get the DCC chip fitted and give it a proper whirl.  I also need to do the same with this lovely new Pacer in Tyne & Wear Regional livery - the rule 1 backstory here is all the sumemrs I spent in Felling/Newcastle as a boy at my grandmothers and the trips we used to take on the Metro.



As is often the case in Preservation lines, old meets new!



and a middle generation thrown in for good measure



Jim Finch has had some straw bales delivered for the stables ......



And the civil engineering department have started to get into action on the viaduct across the river Osc

If the pacer met the railtrack you would have a nice rhubarb & custard combo :claphappy:

Morning folks, an update from Perthshire usually means only one thing .... I am back at work!  Only a short time at home, so not much progressed on the layout....

The RTC team mobilised fully to tackle the electrical issue that was holding up normal traffic on the Strathearn Branch



After careful review of the troubleshooting by Dr Howe and his team, some wiring mods were carried out to the Hex Juicer



And it still works when powered up!



And finally traffic started moving again, but still needs careful control of the points at either end to prevent interaction with other power districts, but I have a solution I can live with at last  :beers:

Well done andrew!  A great result.

I must say I haven't got involved with power districts.  It's something I've thought about, but not for very long.  The only disadvantage that I can see with having one DCC supply for the whole layout is that, if one train creates a short, usually at points, all the trains stop.  But, in some ways, that's desirable because I need to try to keep everything in synch, so if one stopped and all the others kept running, it could cause more problems than it solves.  Of course, there my be other advantages of creating power districts of which I am, blissfully, completely ignorant.
With kind regards
Laurence

Further to the inaugural run on the Strathearn line yesterday, the small rake of china clay wagons was able to enter Fiddle Yard 2 (almos!)



I had kicked off an ambitious plan a few weeks back to try and complete all the wagon kits I had amassed, starting with the 10T tankers (I have just read an article on the BBC website about mastering new skills and the idea of "deliberate practice" ... so this will fall into that category!)



The PRPS Carriage & Wagon Works are in full swing now, the measure of successful completion will be once all the transfers from Robbie's Rolling Stock have been used up!



Earlier in the month, I had a conundrum over what to do with a spare JNA Falcon load I had..... the answer was obvious to the Permananet Way Gang Supervisor .... bring in another JNA Falcon!
