Need to send a light engine up off shed to put some steam heat into them

 

In May? Surely steam heat isn't needed today?

Hi KNP,

may I congratulate you on a lovely model railway with a lovely scenic setting and in the particular, the structures, they look superb.

I have only just seen the pictures here for the first time and enjoyed looking through the thread.

cheers

Peter A L

Maybe not where you are, but it's certainly needed where we are!

Definitely chilly here today. I've been on the go since seven. SWMBO put one leg out of bed, mumbled BRR and NO! and went into hedgehog mode. It's a hard life this lockdown!

Normally..but I have just come in from creosoting some fencing and I had my fleece on as that wind has a chill in it....!

 

Quick edit.

For clarity the fleece was on top on my normal gardening clothes.......just saying I know what you lot are like!!!!!!

Yes the lockdown is hard - lets hope we come out ok, without the dreaded 2nd spike

Phew! Thanks for the clarification @KNP

 

I'm surprised at the chilly comments this morning though.

 

I thought the good folk at Little Muddle always enjoyed the lovely balmy summer days - I didn't realise the weather visited our slice of rural GWR.

 

Stay safe everyone, sorry it's cold :-)

Parked the conflat with the container until another day when an idea will jump forth....

 

Back to 4589.

Finished odds and ends...

Small tank vents

Sandbox added with pipe.

A mass of pipework behind the cab steps .

and I moved the brass number as I felt it was to low and didn't line up with shirt button.

Now to move onto the weathering department tomorrow.

Weather permitting of course!

Hi Kevin

 

Have you looked at using finer chain from Ambis http://www.ambisengineering.co.uk/ ?

He does various sizes down to almost invisible!

I kind of like it as it is - just another of those LM cameo eccentricities that makes it in a class of its own.

I agree with that. Just last week I asked a question, at 12:30p.m., "What's for breakfast?"

 

An element of mirth ensued.
