Hi Andrew,

Have nearly finished the retail frontage at Port Regleun and the owners and clientele of the 'Bar Celtique', 'Les Boucaniers' café bar/restaurant and the station Hotel are very much looking forward to seeing the Tullibardine wagon pull up on the quayside.

The Bar Celtique is planning a Scottish Weekend with live music as we speak. No dates arranged yet so no rush.

Thanks for thinking of me.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Tanker heaven in Perthshire today (if you like that kind of thing of course!) ... 18 of the tankers being worked on were finished and sent onwards to the refinery for service, ably hauled by Class 24 D5072

Thank you for your kind comments Derek, Pete, A few more self indulgent shots of the finished tankers









One of the upsides of painting your own wagons is that you can take a few liberties with the colour schemes (in this case to match the colours of my favourite football team)  :)

 :laughabovepost:

couldn't find any trace of them on a search of the www .... but the scheme I have would fit the New South Wales Country Cockatoos :)

(I know know more about the sporting opportunities to be had in NSW than I did when I was up at 5am this morning!)

Those tankers look great Andrew.
And I guess we are talking Dindee United.

If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Andrew

The tankers with Robbie's transfers looking very good

The only point worth considering is fitting the horizontal tie bars using thin rigid wire, this is a useful upgrade. I did this on the ones I built and it adds a nice detail

Thanks Rabbitaway, I am quite pleased with them, but your suggestion is welcome, I'll take a look at that as a further enhancement.....  :thumbsup:

In the far flung reaches of the marshalling yard, some more unusual loads were to be observed, some heavy plant and steel plate being conveyed







Meanwhile the C&W Dept started preparing the tar tankers for a rebranding





A last small job I completed before I headed back to work was to continue the backscene at Muthill station using some Woodland Scenics tree kit bits ... its not as effective as some of the trees that are on the forum, but I think it is just about passable








The 2 refreshement cars are pushed further to the left than they will normally sit and the plan will be to run some more bushes/vegetation along the tip and down the sides to blend things in a bit .. still a bit of a work in progress!

There has been another Aussie invasion in Perthshire (we had relatives over for 3 weeks at xmas & NY) .... this time a much more serious threat to the stress levels of the local golfers.... and more like the golf courses of Perth, WA than Perth, Ecosse!




Or of Canberra, Australian Capital Territory.

Here is a photo I took this afternoon of some kangaroos hanging about on our local Royal Canberra Golf Club grounds. They rest during the day but come dusk or on cloudy days they'll be chomping down on the greens and the fairways. The kangaroos keep the grass down well enough, but there are hard black pellets left behind.

Great picture Webbo, I assume you wandered so far off the fairway just for the photo and not for any other reason  :)    (I speak from experience as my golf expliots are never simple tee to green affairs!)

I'll move the Perthshire 'roo's into the rough

Actually Andrew,

The photo was taken through a chain link fence separating our dog park from the golf course. Notice how worried the kangaroos look with their vision of frenzied dogs running back and forth along the fence.

I gave up golf as a young man after slicing the ball badly off a tee and hearing a metallic clang shortly thereafter that I have assumed to be the sound of a golf ball ricocheting off a passing car.
