Just an update on my progress and some new additions this week.
Firstly, I’ve converted all my stock to Kadee couplings. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, and I’m really pleased I did. Previously I had issues with wagons randomly uncoupling here and there, as well as big gaps between stock. Now everything is close coupled and super reliable. I’ve used Kadee number 17s, 18s, 19s and the odd 20 here and there.
Next up I’ve added a larger storage yard, with some space for any loco maintenance. I picked up cheap old second hand points for this from my local model shop – they don’t look pretty but do the job.
Thirdly, after a break from the scenic side of things, I’m back to making trees and bushes to line a neglected corner of the layout.
Finally, I’ve picked up some new additions.
Stanier Black Five No. 44694 I found for the ridiculous price of £35 from Trains4u in Peterborough after trading in some old bits. I also grabbed a second Standard Class 5 online after spotting another crazy deal. I have freshly weathered both using the trusty airbrush and some powders.
As always, thanks for watching.
