Dean Goods pt4 - paint

A break in the rain this evening allowed me to get the Dean Goods painted, Halfords etch primer at lunchtime  followed by a coat of their satin black.  This was followed by a first pass at weathering, adding a dirty black/brown mix to the frames and footplate and a start to dirtying up the boiler top.  It needs transfers (for which I’ve ran out of GWR transfers for the tender) before it can be mat varnished so I can get on with the weathering powders.  For the moment it looks a bit odd with dirt

Restoring an Oxford Rail Dean Goods

Another new restoration project sourced from eBay for the bargain price of just under £30 will add an Oxford Rail Dean Goods to the loco fleet. The source model is the later release (with single flywheel and coreless motor), has had a very bad respray (along with some damaged detail parts) and was sold as a non runner because the seller was confused about the loco - tender coupling and DCC.  In fact it is just a standard DCC ready release and once loco and tender are connected runs nicely.
