Evening all,

Last weekend was supposed to be our final 2020 booking at the Severn Valley but the current situation caused a cancellation. I'm hoping I can find the time to do some remidial work on the layout here and there, add a few details etc but I'm still working so time is still limitied.

However I have had a new addition for the preserved fleet in the form of the Kernow limited edition Choc/cream Bubble Car that I picked up second hand for a bargain price.



Not much else to report sadly, but I'll update when I've done something!

Cheers

Ollie

Very nice. Not sure when the exhibition circuit will open up again but it does give time for those odd little jobs.

Evening all,

Just another small stock update tonight.

One gap I've had in my stock box for a while has been some standard GW box vans for the 1940s era of operation. I've got a Farish Cattle Van and SR Van in GW grey but thats about all thats on the market to modern standard. I had intended to buy a pair of NGS MOGO kits, but I've now sourced the following...


Now these have made an appearance on Wenlock before during NGSE when they visited courtesy of my co-operator for the day. These are actually PECO vans that have been repainted to remove that plastic look with metal wheels added. Suits me just fine, only modifications I'll be making will be to add running numbers and comvert to Easi-shunt couplings. But for now they help form a nice uniform rake.


Cheers

Ollie

That train looks great!  :thumbsup:

And I particularly like the choccy-creame bubble car. A very canny buy on your behalf. How's it run? Smooth as chocolate?  ;)

Serious question, by the way.

Couldn't have described how it runs any bettet if I tried! Very smooth, but I've found that with all Bubble Cars I've had.

Cheers

Evening all,

Couple of small things to update you about.

First of all Wenlock can now lay claim to being a cover star after appearing on the cover of the most recent N Gauge Journal.


Secondly is that Wenlock's newest operator arrived on 19th July! Now it'll be a while before she'll be able to take control but reat assured a Wenlcok baby grow has been ordered!

Cheers

Ollie
