  1. Resurrecting an old model to form the maintenance of way train. Currently looks awful but runs really well. I have also started but not yet finished modifying the open boat to a small inshore fishing boat. It is in primer to show up all the imperfections before continuing.

  3. Reworked loco on a freight off to Parkbourne St Giles and shot up the lane. Still waiting for Peco to deliver the open wagon kits from the model shop which will be converted into salt wagons.
  4. Started to rework a Fleischmann Magic train 0-4-0 to a little more akin to a British loco. Photo shows WIP

  6. Yet another Hookton update Rebuilt the fiddle stick/sector plate and added a protective Perspex front cover. I knew the slide from my old drafting table would come in useful.
  7. Needed a water tank so I thought why not incorporate it with a useful building. So Leggs Boats was added with said water tank along with lobster/crab creels, net mending (fabric mesh, cotton with small beads threaded on for corks) crates and a pair of oars made from brass wire with the ends flattened by basing the hell out it with a large hammer (ears are still ringing) and marker buoys
  8. Leggs Boats net repairs plus crab and lobster pot (creels) buoys with flags. Net has cork floats from small beads, sad I know.
  9. New loco under way. Resin model of Upnor Castle. Chassis built and fitted with a 35mm spud. Couplings on order still needs glazing, driver and weathering.
  10. Leggs Boats and water tank now have boxes, lobster creels and a pair of oars. Oars have been fashioned from brass wire with the end well and truly flattened with a large hammer. my ears are still ringing. Meanwhile the magic train conversion is still work in progress.
  11. Railbus levelled up and populated, still a bit more work to do not least providing a platform.
  12. Thought it about time that I progressed the Railbus, so here goes. The bus now is self powered and no longer relies on the powered wagon that was coupled to it. The back end needs levelling up but otherwise it's getting there.
  13. The water tank almost complete at least it has a water gauge and hose operated by a simple gate valve, ladder for roof access etc. The building/tank support is now Leggs Boats which gives me an area for buoys, fenders and lobster pots .
  14. Started anglising a magic train 0-4-0 and building a water tank. Very early days with both projects needing lots of work.
  15. Finally have added the wagon transfers. The Brake van displays the number 3 but in true fashion it's the lines only one. The C.S on the opens came about from producing a midlands base layout the Central Shires but now stands for Charles Spencer. As one of the villagers occupations was working the salt pits, I have started to build a couple of salt wagons (never having seen a narrow gauge one).
