More pretty stuff and recent weathering work.

Heljan class 33 and Hornby vans lead a BR Southern Region all-green train over the viaduct



Another class 33 bursts out of Nansglaw Tunnel but fails to attract the attention of nearby walkers



Steam isn't forgotten - Bulleid light Pacific "West Country" class is still loved if careworn in its latter days



And 37521 "English China Clays" is living up to its name having acquired a fair coating of the white stuff



Just enough weathering on 1662 which carries a famous name and a little grime



Finally I don't seem to have posted this one here before.  Two matched 37s lead the weathered Polybulks through Treheligan after dark

looks like a lot of effort gone into rebuilding your layout there Showtime.
  Showtime Chief Train Controller

It is taking me years but now that I have finished restoring my 1958 Ford Customline, I can spend some time back on the layout.
I started ballasting last night.
2 years ago I started changing it over to DCC and bought all the NCE gear to do it.
Then last year I had a change of heart and rearranged some track so I could run 3 tracks on DC so it will stay "old school" now.
It is based on German and Austrian rail with the locos and rolling stock Roco and Rivarossi.

I seem to have a soft spot for the German locos - esp with the pantos on them

for the first time I have progressed with a layout to the scenery stage without changing my mind and starting again! And the Ozrail CS vans help make Balhannah look better.

Streamliner

Nice bit of gear you have there in the photos. A question though, presuming the 500 is Oz rail, what are they like? I have heard different reports on them but I wouldn't mind a 500 shunter.

Location: NSW South Coast
The Ozrail 500 looks the part from a metre away, but closer inspection you notice that the resin body doesn't deliver the fine detail, and the pilots and side walkways are warped on mine, hot water has helped but its still there. It does run quite well at slow speed on DC, I've yet to convert it to DCC. Would I buy a second one?- not for the price, but I'm glad I bought one, and it's better than not having a 500!

G'day All,

A bit of a night life in Victoria Street,

and as always, more on the blog.

I also have an Ozrail 500 and have much the same comments as Streamliner above. It runs well at low speed but the body needs a bit of hot water work to bring it into line.

I happened across a very cheap 1st gen digitrax decoder that I could reprogram with a 'diesel' sound set that I installed to somewhat hide the drive train noise; my 500 at least is a bit noisier than the BLI SW7 mech I chopped to pieces to put under the old BGB 800 shell.

Hi all,

Just finished all modifications to my Austrains 81 class in Freightcorp blue. Have also added DCC sound to it as well.

Goodness me it's been a long time since anyone was here!  

I've built an all-new N-gauge mini-layout since the last post, taken it from Melbourne to the UK for an exhibition and brought it back.  My first venture into the smaller scale had to fit inside a travel bag and pushed to the limit the flex in flexi-track and the ability of rolling stock to get round it.







Meanwhile in the backyard the permanent layout has had a new laserlite roof built to replace an old, frail and leaking GRP sheet one which was so thickly covered in lichen that very little light got through.  The new one has taken things to the other extreme but allows the enjoyment of moments and scenes such as these.
