A leap over the wall got me this shot this morning.

Looks like a lonely wagon at the end of a long forgotten siding and its been there some time as a tree is growing up inside and just peeping over the end.

 

We've got  a bogie bolster like that parked at the end of a siding at Crowborough with a tree growing up between the rails and through the wagon floor. It would be impossible to collect it by rail as the tracks have been covered in ballast and other rubbish. I presume its still on TOPS somewhere.

Now there's a thought Paul, I could mothball all the sidings with dead wagons and trees growing between the rails.:o

 

Now that would be different.:good:

Well I've left it since this morning with the caption for the pic above saying 471999, and no one has picked me  up on it, so I've now corrected it.:swoon:

I did see it but decided that picking up on minor spelling mistakes is perhaps pedantic.

O.K. folk's take a seat, as I've been doing some modelling on SMS.

 

Well modelling of sorts, I've ballasted over the plastic mould's for the Catfish using Woodland Scenics Medium Grey.

I then cut some card the size of the inside of the OAA's and glued a piece of metal under them so they can be removed with my magnet and Ballasted using N Gauge mix of;

Gaugemaster Ballast

Woodlands Scenics fine Brown powder.

Wooodlands Scenics fine Cinders,

Woodlands Scenics Mixed Clump Foliage.

Peco Mixed Static Grass,

A phone call to George T of this Parish was a reminder to add some old Sleepers to the Load. I have now, but only on one Load.
