It might need further work, but what you've done already is still decent

Once I do little more work on them, I'll take closer photos. Some of the "dirt" is not sitting in the recesses where it would accumulate for real.

Getting better: I have added a couple more layers of weathering to the  telescopic DB steel coil wagon. I'm much happier with this effect now, although it still needs a little fine-tuning. The photos show both sides of the wagon.

Again, thanks for the compliments. :)

Techniques used include weathering powders and paint washes, using colours like dark rust, dark earth, dark brown, and dirty black.

Just arrived at Newton Broadway is my second Golden Valley Hobbies Janus industrial diesel electric loco. I actually ordered this one sound-fitted around two to three years ago. Anyway, it ran perfectly straight out of the box, and the legomanbiffo sound fitted as standard is superb.


In line with all of my fictional industrial locos, she now sports name and number plates from Narrow Planet, in my own series for No. 17, Amy

In the meantime, some more European wagons and locos arrived, from the Roco and Piko ranges. I have not as yet weathered any of the new arrivals. I am sure the train formation is not particularly prototypical, but it adds a nice splash of colour to the Continental contingent. The locos are another BR 185, 185 540, in Kassel Huskies livery, and 182 003 in standard DB traffic red.

Great Video Jeff.... your permanent way crew are lying down on the job though. Did they think they could hide from the inspector in that wagon?

Still in keeping with my Danish/European sub-theme, I managed to purchase a reasonably priced ESU LokSound v. 4 decoder brand new. I downloaded a sound file from ESU's online libraries of sound projects for a Danish DSB ME diesel-electric locomotive and fitted the decoder into my HobbyTrade example of this locomotive type.

I used two differently sized 'sugar cube' speakers to get a better tonal range - the bigger double with large sound chamber I wanted to put in was too big to fit. I wasn't thinking and instead of wiring them in parallel to achieve a 4 ohm total rating, I wired them in series, giving 16 ohm impedance, but it actually worked very well this way, with nice clear and loud sound: loud enough that I had to turn the volume down quite a lot with CV 63 now set to 80 instead of the default 192. I think the horn volumes may need to be increased a little though, which is possible but I'll have to look for the correct CV values for those two sound slots.

Nice, Ron. :)

Probably a little before the epoch V/VI I have aimed at though. Even so, all donations will be gratefully received!  ;-)

You have nearly as many locos as my wife has shoes.  And she has a lot of shoes!!  It's great seeing them all, though. (the trains, not the shoes!)  One day soon I will purchase my fourth locomotive!!  And maybe something for it to pull.....

Michael

Hi Michael,
I do have rather more locos and units than I actually "need"! I also try to have suitable trains for each loco type - the beauty of model railways is that one train of wagons or coaches can suit many different locos, or, conversely, one loco can suit more than one train.

A small improvement at the loco/goods yard entry: I have made up some gates using the Gaugemaster Fordhampton level crossing kit without the roadway parts. At this point they are unpainted, but I will be painting and weathering them in due course. 

They are being used as an occupation crossing, so open outwards rather than across the tracks. I will have to post suitable signs up in the near future too.

The crossing gates are a nice touch, even in their unpainted state.
