Cheers Martin, and YES I need a couple more Tanks, but later they will also be mixed with the Speedlink workings as well as running as sets.

And now the Final Video from last week including some Class 56 action and some repeat shots of the Skateboard and Railfreight 37 just to add some time to the Video.

Nice video (as all the others were too).

Hadn't heard the term skateboard before but I like the analogy. ‘Cos of my background I still think of them as (modern) bubblecars.

Do I tell him now or leave it until he visits the ranch that I watch the videos with the sound turned off. I do enjoy them just the same.

As for a bit of a curtain, I will have a look for some black cloth as paper never works that well.

 

Hi Andy

 

Black plastic bin liner is what I used on Tidworth and Exford Park works very well. I usually have three layers of plastic and then cut them vertically at roughly 5mm intervals and the trains just push through them with no issues. Just added the pic above where you can see the plastic in place under the bridge.

Although I originally said no to that idea, the more I think about it the more I like it, so might give it a look at later.

Morning Andy,

I cannot think where I saw it now, but somebody created a black 'curtain' that was stabled to the back (ie fiddle yard side) of the scenic break, so that trains passed through it when entering the fiddle yard, and very effective it was.  The so-called curtain, was a piece of black paper, with cuts around every a quarter of an inch from the bottom to half an inch off the top.  Spanning the full width of the tunnel mouth - it was a quick, easy and cheap way of working but did work well.  I seem to remember some comment that paper was best in that scenario as it was flimsy (so trains could push through it) and it was easily replaced if torn.  He had tried some form of cloth but it could catch on some of the finer detail, where as paper couldn't.  I think it might have been a steam layout however, so that may not apply to you.  Just a thought for you...

 

EDIT: Oops, sorry, hadn't seen Ian's post when I typed the above!!  Ian's image was exactly what I was trying to describe, but I like the idea of the black bin bag better than paper....

however I do have a list (in my head) of the next lot of jobs, such as painting the Platform furniture in the correct colours, fitting dummy Point Motors, AWS Boxes and Lineside Boxes, and then buying some Sheep and Cattle for the Field and Meadow etc.

 

So basically many hours of fun adding the details plus of course some Body's about the place.

 

:o body's? Don't tell us there has been multiple murders in New Mills overnight in the vicinity of the station?

 

That meadow looks such a quite tranquil place, as does the station, although if those rouges from Lincolnshire and Yorkshire are invading the place....... <ducks quickly> ;)

Cheers Guys.

Morning Buddy, l think if you painted the inside of the tunnel mouths onto the fiddle yards BLACK it would hide a lot from vision or some sort of curtain hanging down would do the same, really enjoying the small film clips, also will the pond get any bigger ?

Taking George's idea, this morning I've painted the area inside the Tunnel Mouth, but will be adding some sort of black curtain as well.

 

So much better already, cheers mate.
