    I think so, I did order a box of track but it took a month to arrive. the new mouldings are a lot better as the older stuff seemed to getting a bit rough

    Thought I best grab a dapol 16ton mineral from The latest batch for the mixed goods, I’ll certainly get a few more. Weathered using Howes sprays for the under frame, MIG washes, powders and some dry brushing for the wagon body.

    My dad has been working on this diorama for a while now. I believe it’s based on Stratford upon Avon. It’s now with me for some additional scenic work and will then be offered for sale.
