This is  a light to medium weathering of a standard Heljan Class 31. I have to say that this is the third Loco I have done in this livery and they weather very well and certainly look the part, I love the subtle blending over the lower stripes, and its easy to achieve. Must get […]

Ni-Hao

This year we open our garden twice for the National Garden Society. As part of this, NiHao gets a chance to be shown off. Last minute tests revealed a dodgy point motor so a last minute dash to the model shop and a quick transplant was required. Other than that the layout performed very well […]

We had two meetings this month. The first was our Christmas lunch, which had been postponed because of snow on the original December date. It was strange wishing people ‘Merry Christmas’ in the middle of February. The second was a working afternoon hosted by Nick Percival, who also provided the very nice catering. We met […]
