    So, might call it Leftover as I have gone through with a stock check and am using up some kits and bits and pieces accumulated over the past 10years rathe than let them go to waste.

    Baseboard kits purchased to save time and backache...

    The track is made from Peco Individulay rail parts and C&L chairs, as Peco chairs `melt` badly when using Butanone on ply sleepers , then laid and wired up...

    all track airbrushed throughout....

    This time I`m using auto couplings ( Flippem from Marc Dobson

    )

    Thanks Gormo,


    The biggest risk was using and mixing Peco code 125 track parts with ply sleepers/plastic and C&L rail chairs....

    Then there was the robbing of electronics from a control box made in 2005.....

    Very busy with making a set of buildings. The new project has it`s new signal box and hopefully the name plate will arrive from Intentio Models tomorrow , which, of course, will be the name of this project.

    I`m a great fan of lasercut kits and Railmodel kits are a good price for a quality product... and with a bit of extra thought make a reasonable model.
