Also passing through, on a Plymouth - Portsmouth service, was the S15.

Now with the shiny bits well toned down, weathering just about finished, but still needing a crew, pick-ups and decoder. These can be done later, but at the moment there is a little tight spot whille running on test. It is gradually easing, but I won't fit the pick ups until it has gone.

Weathering is looking good, Julian - as are the locos underneath, of course! Somercombe remains one of my faves on here.

Thanks. Now that the weather here is a little warmer and having a few days off work, I intend to do some more work on the layout. First priority is do finish the qork down to the end of the headshunt. This area includes the brewery, the engineering works and, in between, a timber yard. Somercombe fire station will go next to the brewery. Behind the tracks will go more industrial buildings, though probably not the ones seen in earlier pictures. I will try to get hold of one of these :-

and build them up as low relief.

They are similar to some of the buildinf that where once in Bristol docks and are also reminiscent of the Fry's factory in Keynsham.
