    Progress on the station forecourt includes erecting fencing:

    What do you do when you find yourself with one too many Dublo Co-Co diesels (I mean the plain green ones, not the Deltics)? I selected the one with the worst appearance and painted it blue. The yellow ends need another coat of paint, and there's a bit of touching up around the buffers to be done, as well as affixing transfers and nameplates. It will be named "Meld", a strange name to be sure, but it was the first Deltic I travelled behind - from Montrose to Aberdeen.

    In case you're wondering and haven't noticed my Highland Railway thread, the green 0-6-0 is a (present day) Hornby Southern Railway Dugald Drummond 700 class ‘Black Motor’, which I am modifying to look like (I say "like" as there are some discrepancies) a Highland Railway Peter Drummond "Barney" 0-6-0. The paint job is only partly finished. I used Southern Railway olive green, as it's available here and fairly close to HR green.

    Basically what I did with the chassis was to reroute all the pickup wires to one pole of the motor, and fitted a Marklin skate to the locomotive chassis that I then connected to the other pole. I must have done something right, because it works.
