  2. Hi Jules, Thanks I wasnt sure how the Lowmac would turn out but I think its fair. The BDA went a bit better! Thank you I need it!! haha! no problem!! Thanks for dropping by! Trev
  3. Thanks Adrian, much appreciated. I was after a bleached look, not sure if I achieved that!! Cheers Trev
  4. I have a few Loadhaul and RF Bachmann BDA's that Im adding dirt to. A few weeks back I added stanchions from **** gauge wire, superglued into place and painted a nice rusty shade of red. I can't be bothered with renumbering each wagon to provide sequential numbering as life is too short and the weathering will probably obscure some detail, so Im plumping for making dirty only. I did at least four different deck washes and removals in different amounts and also used the weathering powders and hairspray. I still have air pipes to fit, do the buff
  5. Hi Adrian, Not sure where the PCA would have been?! I'm sure one of the kit manufacturers probably do/did a kit? Im sure someone will know! If you don't ask, you don't get mate! Trev
  6. Hi mate The first one is a pressurised TTA - I'd suggest Chlorine, but perhaps C02 and the second one appears to be a PCA - cement maybe? Hope that helps Trev
  7. Hi Adrian, Just catching up after my sabbatical! Your layouts come along a treat. I love the infrastructure. The cable troughing and P-Way is very neat! I really like the roadworks and the trench! Very original. Keep up the good work mate Cheers Trev
  8. It still a bit parky outside so the heaters were on for a good few hours prior to going in the garage yesterday. Yesterdays objective was twofold: Vacuum the layout, and to clean the rails Weather a Lowmac and to add vac bags. So carefully, (avoiding the ground signals), I vacuumed the layout in its entirety, went over each section with a track rubber, then went round afterwards with a non fibre-shedding cloth soaked in Isopropyl alcohol. That was fun. I must invest in one of those CMX tank wagons with the cloth pad........ So onto the Lowmac - it w
  9. Thank you pal, much appreciated
  10. Hi Adrian, Yes mate things are very tough at the moment... They are stunning models - can't wait for the TEA with the Schleiren bogies! drool Trev
  11. I've not done a great deal to the layout over the winter period, and its been sheeted over in the garage. I suppose that's one of the disadvantages of having the layout in there that you're governed by the cold as to how much work you can do and when.... I've had a couple of new purchases arrive namely: Dapol JNA's - maybe a bit modern for my time frame, still I might weather them add a load and sell them Cavalex PGA's - Stunning models, by far the best RTR model ive seen - I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to weather them...more to be purchased as I want
  12. Cheers matey Lots to do still! Trev
