Since my last post I haven't been totally idle modelling wise although a few 'issues' with the mechanics on my van haven't helped with the modelling mojo at all. I thought it was worth a post to show that I nearly have two more usable engines, okay, so they are not a couple of lovely steam engines but some early diesels instead. The plan is for these to provide some sort of motive power on the layout until they can be replaced by things which are a little more interesting to me. Because of that I have done the bare minimum to them really, had the wheels turned by Gordon S and fitted some NEM DG couplings.
Its a good feeling to know that once they have some decoders fitted there are two more usable engines, even more so there are two less engines on my ever increasing pile of 'to convert' N gauge things.
Finally I must say a really BIG thanks once again to Steve T who has again done an absolute brilliant job with the weathering, the pictures do not do them justice.
Oh, and I spent a day here..
