Having rounded up what model railway items I feel that I am able to use from my parents' house, I have for sometime been attempting to plan my layout.
When we get around to it (money wise), I plan to use the loft having a layout based on a preserved railway. But in the mean time I am planning a small layout based in the mid 60's at a branch line terminus that will take apart and store under the spare bed (plenty of room, it's a double). My wife says that she can provide the "railway cats" - four of them.
I have found a number of Parkside and Cambrian kits that I have built, but not painted, so I have been thinking about liveries, and then weathering!!! I must have thought about this sometime back as I seem to have bought a load or Railmatch paint.
So this week I have spent some time weathering an old Hornby 110, replacing the speed whiskers with a yellow warning panel, and adding some dirt and rust. Not to sure if I have over done the dirt, but still, it is my first attempt
As I said, I my have over did the dirt!
Granted that the photo's maynot be the best in the world but....
All that is left to do is convert it to DCC and add lights - could be a while off yet
Any comments welcome
