Very nice Stu, like the wear on the buffers.
I always think it a shame about those awful couplings.

Indeed, very nice. It's not a complete solution, a fully detailed buffer beam would look better, but short shank rapidos make (imho) quite a significant improvement on the class 33.

Time to resurrect this thread. A few photos of some roof weathering done on a few random coaches & wagon rolling stock from my flee I did a little while ago  :)

Another one of my little projects done a couple of months ago. Class 37/5 in large logo livery & red stripe converted into a Class 37/7. Two engine room windows blocked up & filled over, had to sand & partially respray the body to get rid of the red stripe on both the grey & yellow areas. Then a re-number as 37 798, a Cardiff Canton based loco which will be ideal for the Porthkerry layout. Some light weathering & detailing done to finish it off & help blend in some of the resprayed areas.

Currently on my workbench are these Taylor Plastic Models kits which I've been meaning to build for some time & now finally getting round to them. I have 20 wagons in total to build into an Iron Ore train which were a common sight in South Wales Port Talbot & Llanwern steelworks. These will be ideal for my Porthkerry layout to go behind either Class 37's or Class 56 locos.






I've made a start building the bodies of the 1st 10 wagons.











That's all for now,

Cheers, Stu

I think they will do Mick  :goggleeyes:

Still, something to get done in the dark evenings.

Been suffering with a back problem over the last week so managed to get a bit more done on the wagon building while resting. Something to keep me sane! Some grey painting & pink faded red done on the 1st 10 wagon bodies done...before anyone asks yes they really were that colour  ;)

Who'd have thunk it? Pink panels on wagons and, presumably, orange on the blue ones :goggleeyes:
Anyone know the reason for this?
