Well not a lot of progress mainly due to work and a few days away. But I have bought some Oxford Transits and the signwriter dropped by yesterday to the Geominster Ford Dealer to do the work.

















After some discussion with Dapol I have also decided to renew my Club Membership, there is a new lady called Andrea who responds quickly to any queries and Neal Morrlle has been appointed Marketing Manager. Now there seems to be good communication and Neal being an N Gauge modeller can only be good for Dapol and us N Gauge people. I have booked my place at their Open Day 1st October, is anyone else going along?
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

A new arrival at Geominster, a Graham Farish Black Class 08, I have been looking a while for one for the Heritage Line Sidings.




I am still assembling the platform shelter seats and just this evening drawn and cut out on the pc the roof canopies for the shelters, these I will fit once the seats and people are in place.






Also advised today by Derails that the new Graham Farish FGW Class 150 DMU is finally in stock and along with some Teak Coaches, JNA Network Rail Wagons second release so different numbers, and semaphore signals should be here tomorrow.

And taken the plunge with the new Dapol Royal Scotsman and ordered the BR Blue and also the LNER Teak Coach Set.

The BR Black Class 08 (as they became) looks very good, George, as do your shelters. You've ordered quite a few new models, too, I see.

So, I hope you'll be lucky, George! 8-)

Whilst I cannot justify a BR Black Class 08 (I don't think any in that livery came that far southwest), I could a BR Black Class 04 (as they became) as BR SR had at least one in that livery at Plymouth Friary shed (so one could have been loaned to North Cornwall for trials!).

A little more done today to the Platform shelters and also a running session which got a little congested along all four tracks.




The Heritage Line storage tracks ad engine shed.







New arrival Class 150/1 First Great Western, very quiet and smooth, shame it caused grief putting in the DCC chips.






Congestion on the mainline.






And finally got the Western in Desert Sand out for a spin and to show Newport Nobby, sorry Mick. :-[

I thought that now we have passengers at Geominser next thing we would need are fences to keep them off the tracks so I designed and made these, can be done in any colour. :claphappy: :claphappy:




Just to indicate how detailed they are










Very happy with the results

Not a lot going on at Geominster except some thinking about scenery and the town scene. Two bridges need designing and building soon to help conceal the return loops of track at each end. I have purchased another B1 in LNER Green by Dapol, new and unused so currently running in, this will complement B1 LNER 1234 both quite hard to find new.




I am expecting two new Class 60's tomorrow, Colas and Coal Sector Adam Smith, the 60's are very good runners so hopefully these new ones will be also.

 Thanks to Derails my favoured Supplier.  :claphappy: :claphappy:

Can confirm they are nice runners - had both out to test before they were sent to you today and both ran great - like the Class 150/1 which was also another good one.

No problem, anytime mate  :beers:
