Austin Spindler, local hot air balloonist has been out in the fine weather and captured a more elevated view of the golfers











I finally had a tidy up of my workspace in the van, which had become stuffed with loco's and rolling stock from various photoshoots and repairs/DCC chip fitting - The sidings at the refinery don't get much coverage, but here we see a fair mixture of rolling stock lurking



The relief siding at Tullibardine has been commandeered by the permanent way gang for the moment



before I started, the PRPS HQ tracks were pretty empty, so few loco's found themselves redeployed there!

Thanks Derek  :thumbsup:

Our tour of the MPD continues, the 2 M7's await their next instructions surrounded by a motley crew of diesels



The diesel group is getting their tanks topped up and looks like the mail has arrived!



Shed 2 has a good number of steamers on show, in this group, J94 8059 rubs shoulders with A3 60061 "Pretty Polly" and the rather more plain G2 9127







"out the back" of the main shed, we see 66610 in Freighliner livery and 57313 in West Coast Railways livery alongside 6837 "Forthahampton Hall"



At the front of the main shed, we see 5029 "Nunney Castle" holding court with a couple of Class 37's in the large logo livery assigned to the highlands, 37402 "Oor Wullie" can be seen on road 3, tucked in behind 08834 while 37417 "Highland Region" sits further back on road 2.  In the foreground you can see the bars I have cut from the cobalt point motors, I managed to save most of them when I snipped them, and thought they would make a good representation of a pile of boiler tubes, suitabley rusted.



Shed number 3 (building not in position, is getting some repairs indoors) has a grubbier set of loco's sitting in number 2 road



Another day, another dog walk and another sighting of the the HST set north bound ... the grey building iin the middle of the shot at the start is the Tullibardine Distillery ... the large green building towards the end is the Highland Spring nerve centre

Some trainspotting at Auchterarder, 47744 takes a mixed batch of freight North
























A couple of extra goodies this morning, just got word from Douglas at Wickness that the B12 & J11 have been chipped, pretty impressive turnaround bearing in mind I only bought them from UM a week ago.

Hi Andrew,

Agreed, nice pics although you're teasing me again with those Spanish wagons. My fault as I was going to get two, the gasolina one which is from near where my layout is based and the Domecq one for my booze wagon collection, but spent my limited funds on a RENFE loco that was on offer. Maybe one day.

Anyway, great stuff and always look forward to your updates every morn.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Thanks Pete & apologies Weave for waving temptation in your face .....  :-[   I bet that RENFE loco is much help on the railway than a couple of troublesome trucks :)

A bit more trainspotting at Auchterarder shows a humble & plain J25, 5650 hauling a much more colourful freight train



Really impressed with these Virol wagons and as the slogan says, kids need it, so that is my justification for 2 if Mrs Milton asks!







The tail of the train is just as drab as the loco!



Some spare parts being dropped off at Rusty Ryan's scrap yard, he has an impromptu arrangement with the railway to allow him to park wagons up here to unload.



While all this spotting was going on, there was still some progress on the River Osc, getting the banks built up



I've carefully embedded the right hand leg of the curved viaduct so that I can build the banking around it, would have been nigh on impossible to do it with the viaduct in place.



I have a helicopter seat with my name on it around 9:30am this morning, so I draw this chapter to a close with one more chance to bore you with a dog walking video capture :)  -  stay safe and happy modelling

Hello again folks, hope you are all well and staying safe.

1st off, while I get myself & my photo's organised to upload, thought I would share a local train that passed through Gleneagles earlier this month, not shot by me, but by a friend who wasn't tied down by a weekly family zoom quiz!  .... and for a  change, it is not a class 43  :no:



My other early update is a confession that I completely missed the news of the passing of Paul Price on the forum last year and only discovered this in the past few week ... so by way of tribute to the fine forum member that he was, I tried to recreate his infamous elephant train.  Was very sad to hear about this and I miss the fun & wit of his posts and hope he is amassing a fine collection of Jubilee's upstairs.



my humble attempt based on what stock I could find







Somewhere along the way we seem to have lost a Pachyderm and gained some Camelus Bactrianus

Welcome back Andrew!

I'm afraid the video wouldn't play for me - I'll try that again later.

I don't recall seeing your canal quay previously - lots going on down there!
