OK Guys,

A proper update.......I`ve had it up to my eyeballs with browsers and photo sites, uploads, downloads.......all sorts of modes and dopey stuff.........So.....back to model railways.

Aaahhh!!!!.....that feels better.

Right.....the paving on my island platform is at the halfway point. I have introduced a tarmac section which hopefully looks like two separate tarmac sections and also more paving following the tarmac and taking us to the board join......halfway.

I visited Gormo this morning and I can assure you that the platforms looks better in the flesh. Top job so far and when it is complete, it will be a standout on the layout.

Cheers, Gary.

Thanks Guys....you are very kind.
The thing is.......you can all do this.......whether you would want to take it on is up to you .....but it just takes time and patience and some tools or improvised tools. Then you need to practice a little on scrap pieces to get the feel for it and away you go. This method would also be ideal for roadways and there`s no scribing involved.???
I might do a tutorial later on when things settle in a bit better and I am able to sit for longer. 
Gary did visit today with a delivery of flush glazing, for my class 33, which he bundled in with one of his orders to save me some grief......well done mate....much appreciated.:thumbsup: I also got to see Garys O Gauge Lima Class 33. Aaah!!!!... O Gauge......the size is much better for older eyes and hands......pity it`s so expensive.....Oh well.....gotta win that lottery !!! and then it`s a new house, new big shed and O Gauge....Yeah you betcha baby !!!!!:thumbsup:
Did you get any bargains at Woodpecker Gary??????

Gormo me old mate that platform is looking the Doggies !  and its your perseverance (stubbornness ;) ) that got you there, WE would have just given up at the first hurdle and bought something but you kept at it trialling and perfecting the technique and the results are great. cant wait to see it with buildings, furniture and people on.
  I think a 'How to ' on your work bench or even in the tutorials is definitely called for 

                                                         

Cheers

   Matt

Indeed I did get some bargains. Well you would call them bargains when your dealing with Woodpecker ! I picked up 3 x Bachmann 40 Tonne Sealion ballast wagons at $40.00 each/£19.20 (normally $48.00/£23.00) and a few Base Toys trucks. The trucks were 3 for $25.00. The bargains are not bad really, when you compare them to Hattons prices, then attach postage cost. ;) 

I also purchased a jar of Hornby Rail Colour 405 GWR/BR Green for the repainting of the O gauge Class 33, and a tube of Labelle 106, plastic compatible grease. But they weren't part of the bargain... :whatever:

Cheers, Gary.

G`day Gary,
That sounds alright mate.....a bargain is a bargain.
Sounds like some loco maintenance coming on.
By the way Gary....here`s a maintenance promo video from Labelle. The guy services a loco about half way through..(2mins 40 secs)

Maintenance vid


And here`s a link to their website....you may find some useful info on there.
Labelle

Cheers
Gormo
