I have restricted my CWL coaches to the short length ones.

Thanks Chris, I included them because they had been part of a job lot, big plan to reduce & rationalise my rolling stock over the summer, so the longer wheelbased ones will be part of that

Not much to report on layout progress, struggling a bit to ignite my mojo, I tidied up one small area, where the lines come out of fiddle yard 1 and diverge at different gradients to join the main layout.  It has created a tight gap that I elected to fill with Das clay.

That makes sense, Andrew. Maybe, Chris (Weave) might be missing some of the extra-LWB CIWL coaches?

The addition of DAS clay looks good. Tackling the small areas enables quick improvements to be made.

With the relative success of the control panel for Tullibardine, I elected to progress a similar one for the Distillery on the other side of the window





And while I was in the Van, I started adding a bit of colour to the clay I had put in, will probably just leave it as a rock face with a few tenacious weeds

The addition of colour makes an immediate impact!  :thumbsup:

It’s slightly strange how making a seemingly small change has such a significant effect. But it’s nearly always the case. Yes, small rock face will look good (but you know I like rock faces  :D).

Thanks Keith, I get the same impression when you paint over an area of mod-rok bandage with just a plain brown... makes such a difference!

Sadly this is a feature that you really need to strain your neck from the normal viewing position to see!  but as we know, we do it because "we know it's there" :)

Yep! Just landscaped the back of Sonmel, why? Told myself that at “some time in the future” I might stick a camera on a train.... :hmmm:

Hello, Derek. You need to look out for:

LIMA CIWL Sleeping Car 4787

You should already have:
LIMA 320333 (boxed) Blue and White CIWL Pullman 4161
LIMA 320304 (boxed) Blue CIWL Dining Car 3360

Chris (Weave) and I both have these for "through" running of the CIWL Pullman "Star of the West" train. You would still need a LIMA Blue CIWL Voiture Salon 4162, though. (However, they do come up on eBay, quite often.)

Our imaginary CIWL Pullman "Star of the West" / 'L'etoile de l'Ouest', Brittany - Cornwall (via the West Porthsea Quay - Regleun train ferry) are: LIMA CIWL Sleeping Car 4787, LIMA 320333 Blue and White CIWL Pullman 4161, LIMA 320304 Blue CIWL Dining Car 3360, and LIMA Blue CIWL Voiture Salon 4162.

Other possible additions include:
Dark Blue TOUROPA Couchette, Blue CIWL Baggage 2170.
Rivarossi CIWL dark blue Dining Car 2871,  and the unique CIWL dark blue Pullman Baggages car.

 :hellosign: Thanks Chris, you are correct, keeping a lookout on E-Bay for the missing coaches.
     regards Derek.

Thanks Derek & Chris,

I am pretty sure I have a 4162 that is spare and is planned to be sold, I could hold it back if your interested.

Progress today is around getting the switches mounted and wired



.......and then psych myself up crawl under the boards and fit the point motors!  2 of them are already installed, this panel will make it much simpler to operate the ones I can't see (and know which way they are set) as they are under the scenery now at the back of the layout.  I just need to run the switch cables for them

Great progress Andrew.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Coming along very well, Andrew. If you do have a spare No. 4162 that would be great for 'through' running for Derek.
