O.K. Guys, make the most of these 3 pics, as you probably won't see this 205 Thumper Unit again until I start the New Layout after we've moved Doan Souf.

 

Will it have its centre car by then?:wink_mini:

I remember them at Fratton, Fareham and Salisbury from 1977 when I got into Trains, real and Model.  Obviously in Blue at that time, then Blue / Grey, then NSE, and always loved them for some reason. I also remember seeing one in Yellow / Grey I think at Bognor.

 

I used to ride on something similar in Green between Addlestone and Stains when going to Heathrow Plane spotting about 1960 to 62, but they may have been Electric I guess.

Yes another very nice short Di Seal.

 

Although I will be doing the Mid Hants / Watercress Line Route, so probably not.

 

Here's one I did earlier on my Masons Lane Layout from a few years ago.

And so, back on Topic and this morning I have ballasted the Passenger line and fitted (but NOT wired) the Signal.

 

I've used Woodlands Scenic Fine, B74, but I'm not impressed so far, it seems to have gone like Porridge so far.

For the Yard I'll be using my normal Gaugemaster N Gauge as that is more suited for a Yard area.

This morning I've made a start on the Security Fencing to separate the Main Line from the Yard.

Cheers George, The idea came from Swad Lane, that I bought in 2014, and thought it would work well on here as well.
