The Little Sefton Daily Freight today is Norwich based J50 – 68905. It usually was on Loco release work at Thorpe Station – but escaped for the trip down to Little Sefton, my O Gauge Layout.
This is D2212. A Great Yarmouth based Loco used to run on the Quay beside the River Yare. This is a converted white metal kit with an etched brass cab.
After a photo session yesterday with Little Sefton, the above locos were posed and photographed. All have been weathered to varying degrees.
Here are five items of rolling stock that have recently gone through my weathering system – this is a rather diverse selection.
Grain Wagon (Kit Built)
Parkside Kit 12T Van
Bachmann Brass Tank
Bachmann Brass HEA
This is my O Gauge Layout ‘Mission Road’ – the views are thro’ and over the top of the bridge. The layout only has two points and the fiddle yard is a three option sector plate. Total size 6′ x 2′ and holds about 12 – 15 Locos depending on size.
Here we have a pair of Ellis Clark’s O Gauge Thompson coaches in BR(E) Maroon and Blood and Custard liveries. The bodies were wash and wipe, the roof and bogies/underframe were airbrushed.
I have now completed the weathering of my O Gauge Passenger Brake Van – The first four photos are as weathered – the last photo is as originally purchased. A before and after comparison.
Here are a few photos I took of my O gauge layout Mission Road – No Locos about – but thro’ the bridge and over the top.
I recently purchased this O Gauge model of a Thompson 6 wheel Passenger Brake Van. It was ready made and painted by CRT. Nothing to do but weathering, that will be done ASAP.
Mission Road is my O Gauge Steam Shed Layout. We had a photo session this afternoon, running BR(S) locos. Most are recently weathered Locos, they combine well in the Shed environment.
