Thanks Chris, that is a great tip - will take a look at that, will still not be as good to look at as the barrel loads you have done, but it will be a big improvement

Thanks. I will post a picture of a wagon with the painted barrel load, later. I painted all the large metal 'wooden' barrels, yesterday, Andrew, to go into the "Sam's Cider" open 7-plank wagons and will be supergluing them on clear plastic oblongs so that they can be removed from the wagons if their new owners wish. I'm not sure whether I will have any barrels left afterwards. However, I can always order some more as I have 3 weeks left before I have to return to full-time work.

The Wadebridge Yardmaster has managed to get hold of a few more BR Grey Shoc-Vans than are required for the regular service of returning broken and cracked beer bottles to the South London glassworks that supplies the "Castle" and "Headland" breweries, in Cornwall, with new bottles on the return journey. Considering that transporting Tullibardine single malt in branded vans the length of Britain would be an invitation too great to resist, he has reserved the spare vans for the whisky traffic and a pair will be sent in the train to Perthshire to be replaced with some found in the West Midlands and on their way to Cant Cove in the near future in the next scheduled goods trains. 8-)

Got some trans-atlantic items this month (hand carried by a colleague) - something a bit different.  These will be used around the scrapyard scene that is developing

I like that N Scale Storage Shed, Andrew. The rusty corrugated iron fencing will look very good around your scrapyard.

As for the 'cheeky chappies', I always thought Perthshire was  very genteel county! 8-)

that is what the Gleneagles Hotel brochure would have you believe, but a quick wander down the 1.5 mile, near straight, high street (that give Auchterarder the nickname "the lang toon") soon paints a very different picture, with uncouth revellers spilling out of the less up market hostelry's like the "Star Inn" or "The Niblick" - a fine pint is to be had in the "Golf Inn" in the somewhat bare surroundings though.  These errant youths like to cause affront to the well heeled tourists who travel to these parts

Hi Andrew. I also have both these sets but, apart from (over) spraypainting them in matt grey undercoat have not touched them since! I have repainted various German figures, e.g. Preiser, into more 1960s Britain colours.

I'm having these guys and gal on my layout too as soon as I get my railroad crossing finalised. They will have driven up to trackside in a '58 two-door hardtop Chev.

Some new PO wagons have arrived on the PRPS (courtesy of Robbie's Rolling Stock & Santa!) these have been acquired from local business's and it is hoped they can be pressed into service later this year after the maintenance team have completed essential checks

Local prominent businesswoman, Caitlin Barkle, CEO of Blackford Petroleum announced news of a lucrative new contract to manufacture petroleum products under the brand "National Benzole" for distribution to the local markets - to mark the announcement, information was provided on the re-branded tankers that will be seen on the roads in the near future



Local haulier Tommy Bulwark has also been subcontracted to help with initial supply

Look forward to a picture of that scene on your layout :)

Following the announcement of the new "National Benzole" contract, materials and design drawings have been starting to show up on location to commence the expansion of the refinery to raise the nameplate capacity



The construction team were overheard in the canteen grumbling about the need to build everything from scratch onsite instead of the usual partially completed modules arriving that only require final assembly
