Two Brakes and two Vans in O Gauge.

On Saturday (4/11/23) we are attending the Stowmarket RMC Open Day with a layout. I was asked by a member that will also be attending, to do a quick weathering job on four early wagons that he needs to run on a Club layout, here are the results.

Come and see what the Club does and its projects – we will talk anything Model Railways – any Gauge.

O Gauge Layout back from the dead

Some of you may remember that I discovered this layout in the Spring in a very distressed condition with very thick mould. I have since used mould inhibitor twice and waited two months to see if it was successful. Thankfully it was and I have just taken advantage of the recent hot weather to paint the layout. It would have been terrible if I had to stop this project after all the work done last year. I am trying to do a slightly different fiddle yard, it allows a small degree of shunting in the fiddle yard using the sector plate without the loco(s) moving on to the main scenic boards. The shelves are to stores stock awaiting railing.

Two N7/3 in O Gauge

Here we have two Hill N7/3’s – one fully weathered and the other just out of works in immaculate condition. I never weather all my locos and always leave about one in ten as ex works. I remember this in the mid/late 50’s when I was a lad – sadly by the early sixties most engines were in an awful state, even the early diesels!
