He didn't tell you the rest of the story, before the train left they got kicked out and had to travel on that part built coach......and this time it is not one I am making.

Watch the Video, there are plenty of Mortimore style coaches and scattered DMU's at the Trackside.

They are 12' to the foot ripples but don't look the same when reduced to 4mm scale ripples!

Cheers George, That might be wind with young Jeff, :nono:haha, :D we really did have a super day, and rode behind everything except the 20 that we hardy saw all day, and the Blue 25 that was also elusive all day, even though we went past it several times.

I've just modified my pic above to remove some of my painted backscene, as it always looks wrong when photographed at an acute angle.

The arrival of the Roco VTG Ferrywagon this morning saw it placed in the yard for photographing before entering service.

A rather nice up shot of the 20 running down the Loop along the top of the embankment above the meadow and pond.

New arrival yesterday morning, and after a minor C*** up it has today been fitted with a Paul Chetter Sound Chip so both performance and Sound is spot on.

Nice group.

There’s something about being able to photograph a model from track level or below looking upwards.
