Recent O gauge weathering

October so far has been a bit damp and dreary, so little weathering has been possible. In the last few days a few dry spells gave me a chance to look at some wagons for a friend. 76 more words


Batch of Loco's for some Friends

Here we have a batch of locomotives, all in OO that I have had for several months, some are even off to Australia. I tend to batch my mates weathering work so that I can keep material costs down. 74 more words

Merlin's Lane Stock Weathering

I have now weathered the first three loco’s and  a wagon for the O Gauge Fuelling Point layout. After doing an Exhibition unweathered,  this is what they should have looked like!


LIMA Class 40

This is my 100th post on this site and I thought that I must have a special class of Loco’s to celebrate. It just has to be the Class 40, larger cousin and predecessor of my favourite, the class 37. 92 more words

LIMA Class 37 - 1994 - 99

For my last batch of Class 37’s we move on to 94-99. In this era we saw the privatisation  of the previously sectorised businesses. Initially five parts where privatised, they only lasted for a year or so before the whole lot were sold and EW&S later EWS became owner of them all. 24 more words

LIMA Class 37 - 1989-93

Moving on to the next era, we move on to the sectorisation of the Railfreight industry. I have modelled most sectors in which they served. All loco’s are to the usual specification as the previous posts. 23 more words

LIMA Class 37's 1984-88

When  Lima brought out the Class 73 – it was, for the time, a very good representation of the real thing. When they announced their next Loco would be a Class 37, I thought great, we can move on from the Hornby 37 with Class 47 bogies!!!!  62 more words
