  1. It’s been a very long time since the last layout update. The layout got put away after Model Rail Scotland 2020 and has pretty much stayed that way since due to a wide range of reasons. It’s now back out and I’ve started slow progress on it again. At the moment the focus is on the far left hand board around the church. Two areas in particular; 1, the Crossing Keepers cottage. 2, the Farm House by the vine yard. The Crossing Keepers cottage will eventually have a garden and veggie patch around it, which the Farm House will be the site of the Kelly’s Heroes cameo with the broken down Sherman.
  2. My DF4B ‘Niu Zhaoxia’ missed Tolworth due to me forgetting to bring it. Since last time it was out it’s had DCC sound fitted and a further coat of weathering. It looks thoroughly filthy now. Scrawled in the muck on the sides it says ‘I wish my wife was this dirty’ in Mandarin. But I think I’ve been a bit too subtle and you can barely read it.
  3. Can't say I'm surprised. Always know I was punching above my weight there...
  4. They're road washing bowsers. Used for dust suppression and road and pavement washing.

  6. Wouldn't the easier and better solution be to replace the points with medium radius, there by removing the need to modify each loco?
  7. You look in danger of doing more harm then good trying to working outside in this weather.
  8. Here you go, Paul. The answer to all your woes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_registration_plates_of_China
  9. You'll notice the dump trucks on the motorway bridge already have wing mirrors and correct licence plates for the region.
  10. Van not hitting a QJ? If it can happen, it will happen... What's the plug in the middle of the loop for?
