Southern Railway lives on
No pics yet but I've been decaling a Atlas GE DASH 8-40CW for Southern.

Indoor layout can stay


Well I got retrospective planning permission from the DPA. The indoor layout is here till the spring :) It nice to look at the outdoor layout through the rain soaked window !! I've found a way to add some weeds and took a video, which having just viewed is pretty borring but gives more angles than a single picture.

ken, I love that shot! Did you hear that fedEx and UPS are going to merge? The new company will be called........... Are you ready?????

FedUPS.... Ta Da!

Steve, You have been busy! Glad you are feeling better.

I haven't had much time to do anything train related as it is concert season and I do sound...... I have gotten the fascia painted and installed in the new room:




Still have to do some caulking to stop light leaks (you can see a couple in the photos). Purchased 18 more tortoises so you know what I will be doing over the Holidays.

Well, never mind the last post, I didn't like the way the fading work is going, the roof line turned out ok, but the sides are difficult so I'll be repainting the WHOLE unit. I'll start with the light patches, mask, then do the dark patches.
