Still plenty to do young Paul, the front and middle bit, then some Static Grass in the Sidings etc.

 

Then its back to repair and Grass over the two Sidings that were originally the Fuel Roads, they will be Wagon Sidings a bit like below.

OK, so that's tomorrow morning taken care of. What's the plan after your afternoon nap?  :jester:

 I had intended to model mid 60's to mid 70's while also abusing that era with big doses of Rule 1 but I may now need to slide everything up through the years a little just to make other diesels available.

 

Thanks for your FB.

About your point on overlap of steam and diesel Barnaby hope the following helps

Southern Region steam ended Summer 67 

Western Region steam end of 1965 - but odd overlaps - Bath Bournemouth steam (on S&D) until March 1966

Midland Region August 1968

Eastern Region 1966 (I think) 

 

Preservedbristishsteamlocomotives.com has a table by loco class and by year

 

Hope that helps. Paul

That Siding West Shed is looking very swish now Andy, very realistic.  Can you remind me with a video maybe of how your layout now runs end to end to include all the locations.

 

Paul thanks for some more details ref the end of Steam and when Diesel appeared on the rails.

I think I am going to use a lot of Rule 1 as some of my choices will be locos that were not running together.

 

Best

Hi Barnaby, Firstly its not West Shed, West Shed was an OO Layout from a few years ago, see below.

The New Section is Bench Road, as it fits over the  end of my Bench.

I cant do a Video at the moment, but here is a POD Plan to help.

This morning I've done the rest of the Scenics on Bench Road, and I just need to wait now for the PVA to dry, probably Monday, and then I can hoover up the excess into an old sock and put back into a used / spare container for re use later.

Paul, LJ's probably got a state of the art king size bed complete with one of those built in 55" TV in the posh porta-cabin..

He's at home this week playing with his Train Set.:dancer:
