Morning session complete and tool caboose well on its way to completion. Probably would not hold that many tools but they were in the stores boxes so why not. Need to replace the plastic handrails with some preformed replacements when I track down the package. Dentist time now to see what can be done with chipped tooth

A sound chip would be a cheaper alternative! Chipped part of one of the teeth on a bridge, the enamel part has come off the stainless bit

Could all have to be replaced! Will not be the price it cost 34 years ago!

Hopefully you can go down the root canal and filler route.

 

I had that when I had my front tooth partially shot out at an airsoft event (my fault for not wearing a lower face mask!).

 

It still wasn't cheap, and cost about £400 to fix. But still, it was better than the alternative.

Made progress with the Brownhoist 25 ton industrial crane. Makes into a nice little model that I think will go well down the RIP spur. Make a good visual block to that end of the layout. Always have trouble with yellow covering on plastic. Needs the underframe and jib weathering and that will be about it.

One advantage of having to go through all the cupboards and boxes is what you find or forgot you ever had.

This evening “discovered” a NW2 with sound! Must have been bought at TVam when Menasha was exhibited there many years ago.
Now I wonder if I know someone who resprays locos...

Nice to see that you've decided to model a decent railroad.

Well, he did say it was going to be repainted, so obviously this is highly likely...

The boom car had no weight in it, plastic wheels and looking again more closely had no brake wheel so decided would use another “ discovery” and rebuild the car again so the tool caboose, crane and boom car are more equally weighted and free running

Chilly morning so some modelling time. Decals added to the boom car and weathered and completed another secondhand blue box kit.

Crane rigged to a fashion! Needs a little weight at the jib end to make it sit level.

Tool caboose added.

Going through the storage boxes and discovered a number of part built cars that need to be completed so since still too cold for the garage time to work through the boxes.

First up the coke container gondola more or less complete. Had to scratchbuild 3 of the containers. Need to complete paint add decals and weather before it can join the stock for Vimes Street

Coat of frame dirt and liquid pigment smoke as a base layer.

Opened up a box that said tank and out came this. I think it’s a resin kit from the Monon stores and makes into a model of one of the International built cabooses.
