    It would be nice to see a few shots of the loco itself. Gary posted a photo of his up some time ago. It would be good to see the difference with the change in livery.:thumbs:

    Cheers

    Very nice. Plenty of character and very photogenic.

    :thumbs: thank you for posting these up Kind Sir.

    If I get a chance, I'll maybe try and transfer a photo into the RTR section. It'll be handy if anyone wants to specifically reference it quickly and easily.

    Again, thanks

    Toto

    Great pics of a good looking loco Bruce. Thanks for sharing the close ups. :thumbs:

    Toto, this loco above is a Adams Radial Class 415 with a wheel arrangement of 4-4-2T and built between 1882-1885. The loco I own is the Adams 02, with a 0-4-4 T wheel arrangement, built between 1889-1895. ;)

    I think you should buy one of these Adams Radial in black livery, after all, some of these ended up in Scotland when the Highland Railway was experiencing a locomotive shortage... Nothing like a Southern loco on Northern rails !! :D

    Cheers, Gary.

    Ron, I bought the Oxford Rail version, DCC and sound included. I think there's a Hornby version too, don't know about its chips.

    I stand corrected Gary.:avatar: however, I do remember you posting a photo up and illustrating some fantastic detail and pipe work etc. Was yours the Oxford version as well.

    If I remember correctly it was a limited edition commissioned by either Kenrow or ROS.

    The Adams 02 is a Dave Jones model commissioned by Kernows. Great model it is too ! :thumbs: I would like to get sound for it, but there are no recordings, yet. Then again, there's a 12":1' model on the Isle Of Wight...

    Cheers, Gary.

    The recording on the Oxford model is of an Adams Radial class 415, not the Adams 02. ;)

    Cheers, Gary.

    Hijack away Gary. I like the slightly pathetic sound of the whistle, a sort of "can I be bothered to do this" sound. I might rename it Marvin the robot.

    With such beautiful body work on the Adams designed engines, it makes rivet counting really hard !! :avatar::avatar:

    Cheers, Gary.

    The hot weather has slowed things down a bit. (According to the thermometer in my car, it was 35 before 9am this morning.) The railway room is too hot in the afternoons.
    Here, though is the latest progress. This first third of the layout is pretty much finished now. I don't want to add much more because of the risk of overdoing it. I'm unhappy with the backscenes. As time passes, the bubbles get worse. The spray adhesive I used just isn't good enough. I'm also unhappy with my crude examples of cliff faces. The colour is wrong and my hacking into plaster wasn't effective.
    For this part the track plan is just a broad circle. It is modelled on a halt on the old East Kent Railway, Ash Town. The track plan was nil, no points, no nothing. The only difference is that I put the platform on the inside of the curve, not the outside. Lots of compression, of course.

    This is only a third of the total to be done. The rest, based on Gary's trackplan, is untouched.

    Hi Bruce,

    The scenic section is looking very good indeed. :thumbs:

    In regards to the backscene, if you pin prick where the bubbles are, you then may be able to squeeze a small amount of glue in there then press the print back onto the scenic break. Worth a try.

    Cheers, Gary.

    Thanks Gary, I'll give it a try. It'd be hard to redo it now.

    Great looking Scene Bruce nice to see a modelled scene where the railway is only a small part of the overall scene and not the main focus, very nice :worship::thumbs::worship::thumbs::worship::thumbs:
