    Bulleid 10202 has arrived from Kernow Model Railway Centre at Newton Broadway, and after a suitable running-in spell on DC on the rollers, has had a Zimo MX638D decoder installed. I noted that on analogue DC, it gave a little lurch each time the controller was turned on, before accelerating smoothly from zero again. This occurred in both directions. With the Zimo decoder installed, it behaves perfectly. I programmed my usual settings into CVs 3 and 4 (values of 25 and 18, respectively).

    I like the differences on the roofs between 10201 and 10202, with the exhaust ports and roof hatches exhibiting the main ones.

    The different roof treatments: 10201 has the four small round ports, 10202 has the strips, and also the hatches between the ports divided along the middle.

    I have to find that missing buffer from 10201 too.

    Experimental printed concrete wall texture from Scalescenes on the Underground branch line, to replace the 'temporary' Hornby Skaledale brick walling. The shape of the top of the wall needs trimming, but I think I like the effect overall. At present, the printed paper walling has been stuck to some card and is just leaning in place - the slightest gust of wind will bring it crashing down on the train!

    To me the concrete wall looks a tad red, well pinkish red. I have printed this same wall previously and on my printer it comes out closer to a grey-brown.

    Have you considered using the Sydney Gardens Retaining Wall down load from Scalescenes ??

    Cheers, Gary.

    Hi Gary. The Sydney Gardens one would be ideal, and it was actually available in one of the magazines in the last year or two - I think it may have been Model Rail. Once I find that issue I'll photocopy the textures to use.

    You are correct about the pinkish tinge. That's because the magenta toner on my laser printer is leaking slightly. This was a trial print anyway, so I will be fixing that before I do the final walls.
