And to finish on a positive note route L into the loco siding is now working. One diode in the wrong track so setting one point in R rather than N and the failure of the new fangled induction working of a point motor………..there was no wire from L to it! All sorted so for the first time everything is now live and working. 33102 got the honor of first loco to leave the siding….due to it being first in the queue!

I'm guessing C & D stock would be more appropriate, but I'm guessing you've got half an eye on Revolution Train's '38 stock?

Not much done today apart from getting the control panel labelled. I’d made a start with some dry print lettering but wasn’t happy with it. This has been replaced with BR alphabet printed on to photo paper and glued on to the routes.

The N-Train D stock scrubs up okay for an outlay of around 130 quid including chassis and bogies.

That looks good…….vinyl overlays?

They are the 3D printed kits from N-train. If you order them from Electra Railway instead then they come with the vinyls as well, and they accept a Tomytec TM-06R chassis for the powered car, and Kato commuter train bogies for the non powered. The chassis you might have to source from Ebay, the Kato bogies are available from Gaugemaster. Annoyingly they are sold as four car units when they only ran as 3 or 6 in reality so you end up with a spare centre car, however I would recommend starting on one of the middle cars as practice at applying the vinyls on that car which you then don't need. The vinyls seem to remain stuck to the prints that are sent by N-train, which I think are printed in-house, but I've had trouble with the versions I've ordered directly from Shapewaysto the point where I am going to have to ask Ntrain to print some bodies again for me. I wouldn't try and do these without the vinyls simply because the windows and doors turn out so nice with them done. They also take the Traintech lighting strips nicely as well if you want to install lights inside

A bit of a photo session today with some of the trains that’ll run on Olympia.……

……it’s night time…..just close your eyes a bit…………

The Dover and Brockenhurst portions of 1S15 the Motorail working to Stirling arrive at Olympia. This was allowed just 20 mins to shunt the train before departing at 2330.

Andy as a thought when was the footbridge extension link to Olympia removed the section is currently blocked off with plywood

I haven’t got a date but It is still there in 1988………I have a slide from 1993 that also appears to show it still crossed the road but isn’t clear.

Before we left I largely finished the row of shops which have now been glued to the Hand and Flowers….a bit more weathering to do and chimney pots to add once most things are finished.

Being a southerner I’m stuck between two camps. Never tried mushy peas until Debbie introduced them to me….took a couple of meals……but I really like them. If you want to go hardcore it’s Mushy Peas and warm Pork Pie! has to be a really good Pork Pie though.
