So having completed most of the infill and das clay around the dockside track I thought I better try out various items of stock to ensure different wheel flanges and wheel bases work before I start painting it all up. 

 

The first to test were two of my cargowaggons with the class 66. IMG_20201116_184933.jpg.6e5fee56206e60fd7e1db1534b840d1b.jpg

I tried out various sidings and locations with this set up making sure they all worked nicely. The 66 was sticking on some of the point work. I think some of the das clay was stuck on the point flange reducing the electrical contact. With a bit of cleaning this problem seemed to resolve itself.

Having played around with my 66 I then tried out my 2nd hand Graham farish class 08. It initially pushed around my cargowaggons again sticking on a few points.

Having tried my traction I then tried some different wagons. Out came a Graham farish polybulk and my revolution trains cargowaggons twins.

Having tried out various items of stock I will finish off the infill and then start painting

 

Thanks for reading
