Thanks for the updates Andrew and good to see those splendid HSTs still performing so well un North.
They are sadly missed down here.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

The tar tankers ... were spotted on the branch hauled by Class 35 D7035

Could I ask what chassis is fitted under the Bristol and Oakbank tankers please, Andrew?

Hi Mike, well spotted!! they are kits of an undisclosed nature, I got them as part of a job lot, so have no history on them, but they are a bit more detailed than the GF ones.  There are no markings on them to indicate the manufacturer sadly.

Thanks for the kind comments, I am heading home today as I have reached the end of another 3 week stint offshore, so my updates will become a bit more sporadic! Hoping I can get home in time to enjoy a little bit of what will be left of my birthday  :beers:

I am not a particular fan of these 15t tankers, but I had a few transfers & kits, so I completed these 3 as part of my tidy up loose ends campaign



I remembered to remove the black framing lines from this one!! something I had neglected to do with some of my earlier efforts



Not particularly clear in the photo, but I have modified the frames to straddle the screws on the point motor, should hopefully sit nicely over the top.  Just need to sort out the end now... glass, full wood or mixture of both ....  :hmmm:



The last two 15t tankers were these 2 Guiness ones, I can never resist putting a prominent white component to offset the black livery :)



A gratuitous shot of the rake of Anglo Persian tankers (fore-runner to BP), I did 3 and Robbie did 3... I like to think you can't tell them apart ... but you can  :'(



During the ballasting of the track, I identified some chasm's in the baseboards, so they got plugged by DAAS



And with the welcome sight of 60009 in Perthshire again, thought it only fitting to have her pass through (on the wrong track though  :doh: )



Here she is in real life, at Gleneagles, looking north



and a fond farewell as she heads south

Belated Best Birthday wishes, Andrew. Thanks for the updates, excellent photos. and video clips.

An A4 did visit BR SR and 60009 took the "Plymouth Christmas Market" special to Plymouth, in 2018. However, I have no plans to add an A4 to my loco. collection, as fine as "Union of South Africa" looks in BR Lined Green late crest livery.

I hope with your help, Andrew, as well as Chris (Weave), amongst others, I hope that we can tie together the story of the "Tullibardine" whisky vans' journey south, including the ferry van.

Greetings from Perthshire again, hope everyone is well and braced for the heatwave!

The latest sighting on the tracks around Auchterarder (~Ock-Terre-'arder) was a mystery to most apart from those within the distillery & PRPS community that were privvy to the VIP party visiting from the alternative SW, Port Regleun & TRÉMARGAT ST. CROIX (via Sonmel)





















The distillery team were particularly pleased to see this last dispatch depart as it saw the completion of a new expansion drive to new markets, though they were alarmed at early reports coming in that there had been an accident on part of the network, rumoured to be around Cant Cove that had seen one van damaged beyond repair.

Hi Andrew,

Ta for the pics and just to say that for future reference Trémargat St. Croix no longer exists as a layout so it's just Port Regleun in Brittany and Sant Pau de Mar in Izaro.

Also, no reference by you to the RENFE 319.4 loco. Que pasa hombre? Didn't know you had one and I haven't got one  :(.

Regarding the heatwave later today, I have been told that drinking water is quite a good idea so I'm thinking that if I put enough ice in the Magners I should be OK  :D.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Thanks for the corrections Chris, I was picking up from the Alternative West Country thread!  The Loco is a bit of a cheat ... it is one of the Del Prado static's that I thought could throw a bit of variation into the thread :)  .... you're more than welcome to have this one now it's modelling career has hit the buffers in Perthshire :)

Your idea on drinking water is a good one in my book  :thumbsup:  :beers:

There was great excitement in Tullibardine as the fangled "Elek-trickery" got hooked up to the waiting room ... one elderly carmudgeon was heard to grumble... "it'll never catch on......"



With the modified undercarriages in place, the camping saloon was tried in situ, as much to owner Rusty Ryan's delight, the first paying customer is on their way from Trepol Bay, tempted by the delights on offer at the distillery and recent tastings



.... ah, looks like they have arrived and are settling in to their new surroundings

That motor caravanette looks very familiar…

I remember when Ford 'Cortinas' came in that colour.  And the stick-on vinyl roof covering that came unstuck. 

Good photographs; thank you very much.

Thank you John, I haven't finished the camper van yet (white wheels, glazing etc.), but I couldn't resist the photo once the thread around Tullibardine Whisky started to develop :)

Hi Andrew,

Must be the heat but I didn't notice that that was a Del Prado loco and then remembered that I have got one of those as well but thanks for the offer.

Also, must edit the Alternative West Country thread so thanks for the reminder.

Nice pics.

Cheers weave  :beers:
