The Beast's road trial

WP_20180414_14_04_42_Pro.jpg

 

80 vans were hooked on the back and it slpped not moving 70 vans and it only just about started the train, 65 vans with some slip and again 60 van with no slip

the longest FY siding will only take 42 wagons so preformance was OK for me.

 

The first 45 vans  

 WP_20180414_14_01_04_Pro.jpg

 

the last of the train

WP_20180414_14_02_01_Pro.jpg

 

The loco has been run in and oiled and now running "sweet as a nut"

 

It's shame as Drew put it they were packed by a 300lb gorilla but I recon the footplates were force out of the moulds still hot to incur the amount and level of damage

I would hope the G.W.R. livery and the others to come should be OK as long as Heljan look at what they are sending to the stores time will tell.

 

 

 

 

Edit oops backs of the legs slapping time, I've forgotten to put any lamps on the damn thing

I run in another loco in today it didn't take a lot the trusty Hornby Castle I put all the recent aquired LMS stock on a through train from the north to Kingswear

there's a fair old variety of colours between the different brands Bachmann full Brake, Dapol 2nd & 7th, Replica all 3rd 4th coach, the remainder Airfix brake thirds

and comps, that book The Great Western in Devon has cost me a few bob so far.

so lets see what becomes of this year.

 

It looks like I need three new Manor chimneys it's fatal coming on this forum or reading a railway book.

 

A little bit pee'd off today a Castle is missing a name plate and had to order a new set from Jim PAH.

No, I did have some Ratio but was never happy with them.Those I have now were commissioned to Stephen Freeman (Borg Rail ) to build using MSE and Modelu parts.

I always found the Ratio one's fun to build. I just hope you used armoured gloves to install those Borg (Rail) ones - resistance is futile if you didn't  :jester:

I guess that was the builders clearing the wrong site for the rather splendid new shed!

I dropped in to deliver a parcel, and couldn't resist snapping a quick photo of the station on my phone.

Back in December I shewed an interest in buying the shed from a widows estate being organised by Tony Wright. Well with one thing and another it's taken till today to get it to Tigley. It was built by Geoff Taylor. Only some minor surgery to my scenic's to get it to fit and will bed in nicely in the next few days. Mainly around the little hut and right hand edge needs attending. The tree will still be there afterwards.

Those Borg signals have assimilated nicely...

 

 

Sorry, I couldn't resist that. I tried, but as someone else pointed out, resistance is futile.  :jester:
