More very atmospheric photos Richard.
I like the breakdown coach. :thumbs:

Another good photo day today -overcast and showery - so was back in the loft for another pic session/ operating time. Some of a passenger train arriving.






And a HR 0-6-0 off with the breakdown van and the  PW coach to some task.






Lastly, the Dornoch tank is doing some shunting....

Hi Richard,

Have your breakdown vans had much in the way of weathering done to them. They look very clean in the photos ?

I'd like to be able to source similar in 7 mm.

Toto.

They have had light weathering but this doesn't show up well in photographs unfortunately. I'm imagining the breakdown van has had a recent repaint - in reality it stayed in very faded LMS until its withdrawal.

Recent photos have involved a lot of stock, and a rake of vans which was left on the layout caught my eye as I ascended the loft ladder the other day, so I took the camera up at night and tried a few shots under the daylight tubes. Here are some of them; the vans as they were left...



And with the branch engine of the day attending to them.





I also took a walk around the yard to see what was around....

Some phenomenal images there Richard. I particularly like the one with the morris minor van. All very good though.

Thanks again for posting.

Cheers

Toto

Thanks, but I'm a bit embarassed about that one - its an unfinished corner of the layout - the weighbridge is still unpainted and the office is straight Coopercraft. It was one of those things I never photographed properly for some reason and it is only recently I have managed to obtain good shots of it. A job to do soon, I think. Delighted to have POTW though.....:thumbup:

Hi there Richard.

One thing I like to see is wagons posed with their doors open and showing their contents. Something you have done a few times.

Do you have any details on how you achieve this. Ie how you perform your surgery on the model.

I have a few plastic wagons from park side Dundas and a few etched brass kits as well. Any tips would be appreciated. :thumbs:
