Not much active modelling recently, but i took advantage of the good weather to take a section of the layout into the back garden and pose a couple of trains.

First up, we see the part completed Rebuilt Royal Scot, 46109, having arrived with a returning Wakes Week holiday excursion.

Then a more prototypical push-pull train, hauled/propelled by BR Standard Class 2 tank, 84012.

Dave good to see the layout into the sun and looking forward to seeing the Scot finished.

Photographing outside lends softer tones.

Very nice views. I like how the colours vary, yet blend together convincingly. Not easy to achieve.

Thanks for the comments.

One of the frustrations with the layout is the ballast (C&L crushed nut). When laid, it was grey with cinder coloured ballast in the yard. Unfortunately, as can be seen, it's faded to a pale brown/fawn colour, which means that at some time it will all have to be painted to restore the original intent.

I wish I'd spent a bit more time with that section set up and also posed my Fowler 2-6-2T with a different push-pull set. Ah well.

Dave.

You could try staining it with a mix of alcohol and Indian ink.
