Now if I was a rivet counter Rick (which I'm not), I'd say the bird poo was not to scale.

It's probably P4 poo not OO poo :mutley:mutley:mutley



Congratulations on picture of the week :thumbs

Pic of the week?

<Dashes off to the Home Page> ;-)

Oh my - that's the second I've had. Thanks and all that. It was just a lucky shot grabbed quickly on the phone the other day in a rare shaft of sunlight over the layout.

Planning permission having been requested and received the third and final little addition to the land was begun this afternoon.

The old lineside vegetation was stripped out (and mostly retained for re-use) and the old border unscrewed and removed. A new border has been cut and fitted as shown and the old, together with an offcut of new MDF, has been recycled to become the floor of the new piece. Over ten years of Penhayle Bay very little which could possibly be re-used has ever been binned; the old greenery will go back beneath a top layer of new material. In the image below the old and new edges of the layout are clearly defined.



In cutting the new MDF to shape a small piece fortuitously proved to be the perfect shape and size to drop in as floor beside the stone circle! New land and a low-height back scene here should improve the photographic options at this corner.



And seen from the inside, or normal viewing area, of the layout the new area is ready to be "filled" which will include some polystyrene chips, plaster cloth and then greenery. There's some paint needed here and there as well.

Looking good Rick, like the stone circle and the allotments! Doesn't look as if you use your bike much??:):)

Cheers

The bike ..... ah yes .....

I used to cycle a lot. When I lived in the UK I'd cycle anywhere I reasonably could. I clocked up some significant daily distances when I was younger and fitter. Highlights are the London - Brighton - London round trip, London - Colchester - Clacton - Harwich - Dedham Vale - Brentwood - London and the one-way marathon of Whitwell (Isle of Wight) - Bembridge - Ryde then ferry to Portsmouth before continuing Southsea - Chichester - Brighton - London.

All of those were one-day rides. I've also ridden John O'Groats to Land's End as part of a 14-day organised ride.

The last UK bike didn't come to Australia as the shipping would have been too costly against the price of a new one. I bought anew one here and used it for a few years.

Australian traffic isn't as predictable nor as amenable as British drivers often are. There is a lot of antagonism between drivers and cyclists. There is also something of a national sport engaged in by a minority who open car doors into the path of cyclists deliberately (as opposed to the genuine accidents).

I abandoned the bike after the fifth occasion on which I was pushed off by a passenger leaning from a passing car specifically for that purpose. And no, the police aren't at all interested. They take the view here that if there's nothing in it for them they don't bother. There's no way to trace and prove who the passenger was even if the driver could be ID'd.

I also suffered serious illness five years ago and haven't had quite the stamina or resolve I used to since then.

The bike remains as a monument to past achievements but I fear is unlikely to be used again in or around the city and suburbs.

Fascinating Rick, I thought riding a bike here was bad now but nowhere as bad as Oz by the sound of it!! Don't blame you for letting the dust settle on your bike, best thing I think!!

Cheers
Ron

That little infill of land has been completed but there are no photos as yet - it's been dark, cold and wet most of the time I have had at home. I may have a chance in the next couple of days.

Also new on the block are the first two (of three) Bachmann class 43 "Warship" types. This is more or less a new loco now though the class 42 version has been in their catalogue since it was inherited from Mainline.

The real thing differed internally by having North British rather than Maybach engine and transmission and as a consequence the class 43 had vents and ports in different places to the 42. They were also found to be less reliable, more expensive to maintain and the NBL engines were as troublesome as those that firm installed in other types. Class 43 made an early exit to the scrapyards and none survives today.

Bachmann has released three in this tranche all in different number / name / livery combinations. All three arrived together but one was incorrectly packaged by Bachmann and the correct loco is due to arrive back here any day now.

In the meantime the two which are here have had Fox etched nameplates added (the packs for which include builder's plates which are extremely small!) and the Bachmann details added. User-applied parts include pipework, couplers and / or fairings, roof ports and lifting rings. The roof ports are supplied in sufficient quantity for the user to select their own choice of open (either direction) or closed. The roof has 20 holes for the lifting rings which are minuscule and require extreme dexterity and no losses to the floor! 24 are supplied for the 20 required. I found them rather tricky to fit but managed to get away with 46 of 48 used. The rest are ..... somewhere!

I've applied some weathering and am not sure it's the best I can do so it may be modified over time. I have also added drivers and secondmen as Bachmann no longer includes such luxuries.

Maroon D865 Zealous





And green D835 Pegasus



Lighting is switchable with separate cab and marker light switched beneath the locos. Buffers are not sprung. Running and haulage capability is extremely good.

Nice job with the accessories Rick, makes a visible and authentic difference to the engines.

I've re-worked the weathering on both the 43s and am much happier with it now. See here:

All three class 43 Warships have now arrived, been fully detailed, received Fox etched nameplates and been weathered.

All three seen together as 842 and 865 lead the down Cornishman out of Treheligan and 835 waits in the loop with vans



"Royal Oak" and "Zealous" on the down Cornishman again despite the headcode!



Class 42 Warship 870 "Zulu" also gained Fox plates as a trial before applying them to the rest of the fleet and with satisfactory results



How many Warships do you need before you call your shed a dockyard? 842 and 870 keep company with early-style blue livery D827 "Kelly" on shed at Ponsangwyn.

You certainly have a fleet of warships, Rick.

Nicely weathered and great photos, as usual.

:cool:

Got to agree, nice fleet and nice weathering.
The layout is looking good too, have you been sprucing it up for the spring Rick?

Thanks gents

Yes Marty - as I usually do I've refreshed the greenery where needed and am in the process of giving the entire layout a good clean before the season gets going.

For a 10 year old outdoor layout I reckon it's not looking too shabby!

Beautiful photo's as always Rick. Nice fleet of Warshipsas everyone has said. They look ready for action and look like they have already covered a few miles thanks to your weathering skills.

Running trains is fun .... Granted, but I enjoy just viewing some of the fantastic scenes as modelled by many on the forum. Great to see.:thumbs

Cheers

Toto

As Marty mentioned sprucing up here's an update on the "far end" away from the recent land infills.

The cliffs and high land behind the railway have had a bit of a clean and tidy and have received some new greenery scattered, for the most part, on top of the old. The cliff path has been resurfaced and the cliff face itself has benefitted from selective application of weathering powders and a spray of water to turn them into liquid pigment briefly.

The people aren't back in position yet with the exception of a couple moved up this year from the cliffs to near the top of Men Tor above the sheep field. Nearer the railway the white fence which was damaged by a possum years ago will remain broken as it looks authentic.

The train isn't a Warship this time - in fact it's not a diesel-hydraulic at all!

Good looking trains, great weathering and excellent scenery. :thumbs What more could you ask for...?? Then again, maybe I shouldn't ask ! ;-);-)

Cheers, Gary.

At long last the sun is shining at Penhayle Bay after what seems like an eternal grey cold winter.

Where else could this possibly be?









Those Lima CCT vans (first three in the train) aren't too bad though I am slowly acquiring some of the current Bachmann ones as well.
