Weary of paint and modelling clay, as the coal/minerals yard starts to look presentable, I thought I would try posing some stock. Herewith my efforts. Sorry about the backgrounds.
A 71 pretending to be a 74 pops into the minerals siding with a special delivery of tar.
Said tar wagon is taken off by the yard shunter, releasing the 71. Now we return to Speedlink air-braked services...
The aggregates merchant sets about filling and emptying wagons.
The 'old school' Lima 33 waits to take away the agricultural hoppers and tanks (grain and flour).
73 113 shunts an empty VIX, preparing to send it over the seas to exotic Eastern lands. Please try and ignore the garden tools...
73 111 shunts a delivery of minerals.
The yard shunter brings the day's stock into the Departure Road, in front of the mineral yard.
An overall view of the layout so far. The nearest 'rust' needs toning down, which I should have done before taking the photographs, but I wanted a break from the artist's smock and palette. Now time for dinner, and some glasses of Cotes du Rhone!
