Thanks Laurence, though I think you might change your view if you saw the van in it's entirety :)

Outside they had some ghastly blue thing running up and down the yard :sick2:
'Tornado'

It's a pity you're not keen on Tornado.  It was built by enthusiasm and is currently running a scheduled service on the the Settle and Carlisle.  Perhaps we need some more new build steam locomotives to run more scheduled services.  No diesel particulates there!

@Innovationgame
I have nothing against 'Tornado' at all, Laurence, but do dislike intensely any steam loco in blue livery regardless of type/region. I also dislike diesels in blue apart from the Blue Pullman.

I agree with NN-blue just doent suit steam locomotives in my opinion.
As regards Tornado itself, I must be one of the only steam enthusiasts never to have seen it. However, it is coming to Cornwall in May
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I have SNG & Mallard in Blue... but wouldn't add any more (though I just remembered I have City of Stoke on Trent currently at Wickness)

I haven't seen Tornado either and was gutted to see the Flying Scotsman & SNG have been to the Bo'Ness & Kinneil Rly in recent years and I missed those too.

A bit more progress on the golf course, careful removal of the masking tape was easier said than done as the the edges had bonded with the PVA used to put the 1st stripe down



I took the same flock as I used for the 1st stripe (Gaugemaster spring mix) and added some darker flock through it, seen here heaped liberally onto the glue



Wih the excess removed, you can see the effect, the flock is a bit overscale now I see it down.... but I got the effect I was looking for, now need to just tidy up the lines a bit... was thinking that a dilute suitably coloured, PVA could be bled in, by capillery action to fill in some of the voids between the flock and make it look a bit smoother.... that will need to be done on a test patch 1st to see if it is viable



The view looking along the fairway in the other direction, I plan to use kiln dried sand in the bunkers, the monoblock laying variety



Couple more train movements (1000 "Mayflower") captured by the eye in the sky, Austin Spindler, they also show I have progressed the scenery towards the distillery and put a coat of raw umber down, which in itself is more pleasing on the eye than the bright white of the mod-rock/polyfilla.



4F 3848 pulls the landship train over the gorge



Was quite liking the mood of the B&W ones :)

I suspect only the tank engines.  The others would find it a bit tender.
With kind regards

Thanks Derek

One thing I will tackle next is to install the Cobalt digital point motors... what is the collective advice on whether to run a separate bus for these and other accessories or just drop them all onto the existing power bus?  There will be quite a lot of them once I get going, but I figure I will only be throwing them one at a time so the loading on the system should never be that high

The Great A4 Gathering Event nears its conclusion
A very subdued party of dignitaries and guests make their way on the final leg of the journey from Perthshire to Truro from where the  European guests will travel onwards towards their boat home.  Our two intrepid film stars again left the train in secret at St Agnes Halt.
We see a Manor (of Truro shed) taking the Port Perrann avoiding line as the party near journey's end on a rather damp and dismal day.The Headland Brewery building is in the background.  No doubt the travellers are nursing some sore heads :


The following photo (taken from the platform at Port Perran station) shows what a dreary day it was :

The 45xx rests on Port Perran's tiny shed (reminder - I need to reattach te filler bag to the water tower).

Sore heads aplenty in Strathearn!  A special request has been made by the local taverns to the Headland Brewery for a repeat order of "Golden Eagle" - by popular demand!  Apparently the cheeky porters loading the empty barrels at Crieff for the return journey chalked on them "return full to Crieff"

Presumably, they will return as Heavy barrels.
