    The track around Ranelagh Bridge was very dirty but seemed to have a clean shoulder of ballast

    Hi Steve, sorry been a bit busy lately so only just catching up with your thread and all I can say is SUPERB ! You have some wonderful rolling stock there and a great eye for detail. The weathering just finishes them of superbly, Fred Lewis is obviously a master at his craft :worship: I've seen some of his work on his website and it is fantastic

    Hi Steve,

    We will be introducing an official links section in the near future. We are currently discussing that very theme so I hope to see your work and that of your friends up there.

    It's great to have pictures of such high quality work shared with everyone.

    Many thanks for taking the time to share it all.

    Toto

    Yep, keep them coming. We'll be looking at different ways to showcase members work going forward. It's very encouraging to see just what can be achieved. Fantastic work.

    Cheers
