I understand it will still not cut through plasticard any better than yours can.

That's good to know - can't afford a new cutter as well as a new computer!

Here's a picture of the southern tunnel portal with a BR 5MT bursting into the sunlight as an ex-WD plods southwards.

The new signal box has now acquired a roof and a staircase, thus sparing the signalmen the need to bring step ladders and raincoats to work.



I do so which you hadn't posted that - it makes my effort for Coniston look bl**dy awful  :-[

Sorry about that Chris! If it's any consolation it took me four tries to make that model.

Sorry Roger, this picture reminds me of when they bricked up Henry in the tunnel!  ;)

I don't recognize that reference, George, but I suspect it may be something to do with the works of a certain reverend gentleman whose books I've never read!

I've used the new lens again, this time looking at cottages at the back of the layout. These were among my earliest attempts at making buildings so are not quite up to my current standard.

Seconded! I'm going to try kit-bashing some plastic kits and if they end up looking 105 as good I'll be delighted.

At first, I thought there was some smoke drifting up from the left-hand chimney so realistic does the model look, but it was an optical illusion!

You don't know what you are missing.  :no: :no:. If you ever get to see one of the earlier DVD's, narrated by Ringo Starr, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Oh and by the way, those cottages do look good.  :thumbsup:

I'm currently reading 'The Song of Ice and Fire' books, so if I ever get to the end of them (assuming the author ever gets round to finishing the last two volumes) I'll look for the Reverend's efforts!

I too agree with all the comments about the cottages!
