    Back to the trains!

    Steve's already shown it, but here is another view of that lovely B4 tank built by by the late Harry Dumas.

    Here is Derek's BR brake van, built by Dave Walker from an etch that isn't generally available, although I think Steve Cook has managed to get hold of one.

    And finally Cliff Barker takes great delight in pointing out that the finescale 1/32 trucks are sitting on non-finescale code 200 track:eek:

    That's all folks!

    No worries :)
    Link not working...boo...
    Pleasure, and likewise :D Easy run back for me thanks, not as exciting as your by the sounds of it...speeding, in your tank, was that downhill with a tailwind then :p:D I almost want to say good effort, but better hadn't....
    Excellent - I've finished filling and soldering on the second EM point, painted the first and given up arguing with the cosmetic tiebars on the third. Currently finishing the mechanical stripping of Doddle, a bath in Nitromors beckons next....motivating this live steam stuff :)...or is it prolonged meths inhalation :eek:

    Nice to catch up with you again Simon, and what a cracking display highlighting what is possible in 1/32nd scale.

    I find pictures of Steve's weathering quite inspirational and it was a pleasure to meet him and talk weathering for a while - lots to remember and put into practice. So, tonight I have made the first tentative steps in weathering the Loriot / Lowmac WE. I hope what I've done so far will look OK in the cold light of day.

    Stoneleigh was definitely a good day out.
