  1. Hi Ray, I should be getting stock of the the pack for the Scania from Osborns in the next few weeks. I'm happy with the test sets (after about 4 revisions!). Please excuse the scruffy painting. I've got some bits being test printed at the same time, I'm planning a pack with Long Vehicle boards, light clusters and reflector triangles, to help people either painting kits or repainting Oxford Diecast and the like. I don't know how much demand there is for this, but it'll be interesting to see. This is just one of each style to print as a test. Jo
  2. Thanks Dave. I only put the penny on as I put it on Flickr so would be more visible in non modelling circles, but it's a handy reminder as you say! Jo
  3. Another one, this time from the previous night. 56302 'PECO The Railway Modeller 2016 70 Years' sits in Westbury Up Yard shortly before departure with 6C46 Westbury - Westbury via Taunton and Bristol. 59003 is alongside, unusually stabled in the Up Yard overnight due to shenanigans at the station with an unruly passenger preventing any moves out the north end to get the loco back to the Down side. Once the police had the culprit, trains started running again and the 56 got away right time. Jo
  4. One from last night that I've stuck on Flickr. 56302 'PECO The Railway Modeller 2016 70 Years' sits in Westbury Down Yard waiting time with 6C47 Westbury - Westbury via Taunton and Bristol. In the distance on the Down Reception is 7V12 the Woking Empties, which should have gone in front but was waiting a relief driver. Got a good bit of scream off the 56 as it passed me leaving the yard, I know some scream more than others. Such a distinctive sound, combined with the bassy thump. Jo
  5. Pesky passenger trains! I'm quite happy playing with freight trucks that on occasion turn out to be troublesome! Jo
  6. A recently finished wagon, pic linked from my Flickr. JGA RMC 19240 Take one Graham Farish N scale wagon, throw some brown paint and decals at it and here's the result. Ok, it's a little more involved than that, first airbrush the whole wagon with the brown, take back the excess with thinners on a brush. Build up layers of rusty browns on the top angle where constant battering from aggregate product has removed most of the white paint. The black diamond and graffiti decals are tests for a set I have in development. The weld lines are pencil, small details are picked out in colour before a wash or two of stone dust dirt. Finally it's all sealed with a coat of matt varnish. Jo
  7. A couple of pics linked from my Flickr of the most recent loco off the bench. A Farish Colas shell on the chassis of a 37/0 I'd had for ages. Factory paint job, weathered using a mix of washes and enamel paints. The underframe is built up in layers of browns and greys, with some greasy washes over the fuel tank for that spilled diesel look. Snowploughs modified to mount on the bufferbeam so they don't rotate with the bogie on curves and driver added. The PCBs for the lights have been filed down too to lower the gap between body and bogie to something more realistic. Just need to do the yellow carriages to go with it now. Jo
  8. Was it not 43055 that had the little dance with a mk2 Mick? Jo
  9. Nice rescue job Darius. I'm sure the amount of aircraft kits you've built and modified has helped here. Jo
  10. It's the first in the fleet to have its bogies overhauled. The others should visit in due course from what I've been told by a Freightliner driver. Jo
  11. 08202 with some very scruffy mk1s at Bitton, whilst taking the new bike for a test ride. Jo
  12. They're JGA coded cement tanks, very similar (but not identical) to the earlier wagons built for Tarmac / Buxton lime. Newer Ermewa ones: The older ones Jo
  13. One from yesterday, fancy a blue 66 on your Coalfish? Bristol Blue: No not the glass! DB's Maritime blue livery 66047 'Maritime Intermodal Two' sits in Westbury Down Yard with 40 empty Coalfish in tow, ready to go as 6W50 to Bristol West Junction. This was just one of many trains involved in the relaying work at Bristol East. Picture linked from Flickr if you want to see it big and count the little fishies! Jo
