No intensions of doing any weathering. Too many jobs to do before that. :lol:
The spur into the scrap yard has been there quite some time. Just not used, so becoming overgrown.

Thank you for your kind comments, Dave

I try to have a layout that has some life to it, hence the names of the little people and the jobs they are doing. Also researching where locomotives were based etc. and 'heading them in the right direction home' - if possible. Giving a new thread to operation.

Off course things are taken away from you when the grandchildren visit. They take control.

Over 60 Superheroes and Transformers 'invaded' at the weekend.

Here is a few of them.

A new 45t crane still in German markings. At only £7.25 I consider a bargain.

Sometimes cheeky bids can pay off - mine did with an InterCity 125 and 3 coaches.
