Re: Painting and Weathering Service

I hadn’t planned to post any pictures until my latest repaint was finished, but these two do demonstrate one of the challenges with a livery change. The first shows the body shell stripped of all glass and fittings (whee possible). I had removed the previous branding with IPA but even so, it could b...

Re: Great service during lockdown

I must have a look at that site Richard.

In the meantime I ordered some transfers for my next project from Railtec at 11:00am today. The website says 'made to order and may take a couple of weeks' but these were dispatched by 3:00pm.
Excellent service and definitely my preferred supplier these days.

Re: Painting and Weathering Service

One byproduct of ‘lockdown boredom’ is random online purchases - this was mine. So for an unlimited time, I’m offering a special offer of a free card with every painting commission. :D https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50074596023_d3379271aa_k.jpg 2020-07-04_01-44-14 by Steve Mumford , on Flickr

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

I’ve seen them exchange tokens from a moving train while standing on a proper platform but seems a bit dodgy from a signal box. They usually hold one arm up for the driver/fireman to hook the token over and a hand up holding the other token. They look like they are posing for a ballet when they do ...

Excellent as usual Barry, but how do you keep the dust off? There’s not a speck in sight!
