I received a 'ghost sign' transfer for Lipton's Tea from Scale Model Scenery yesterday, and couldn't wait to apply it seeing as I had a spot already planned for it. Here's the result, on a Hornby Skaledale terrace house building. The instructions say these stick-on transfers are designed for card models, but I had no problems applying it to the resin building.

The ghost sign looks great.  I can remember travelling on the 85 between Putney and Kingston to visit an aunty.  Great memories of the Routemasters (and their unique smell!)

Yes, I must say I am very pleased with result.

:cool: :cool:

Just back from our local swap meet: I picked up this Heljan class 58 in Mainline blue for $AUS120. Tested perfectly on DC, so now has a Lenz decoder fitted. It joins three other Heljan 58s in my fleet: one in original Railfreight red stripe grey, one in Mainline greys, and one in EWS maroon. I wasn't really looking for another 58, but a bargain is a bargain!

A quick update on the recently purchased Heljan class 58. I have now removed the original style cab door handrails and added the supplied newer style combined barrier and handrail mouldings (compare with the photo in the post above). Here 58 050, Toton Traction Depot, is seen posed with 58 004 in slightly earlier Mainline three-tone grey (ex-Railfreight livery), also with the later handrail style fitted.

I must do this to the EWS liveried version as well, once I find where I have squirrelled its extra parts pack away!

I have just redone the concrete wall beside the London Transport branch line on Newton Broadway. The previous version printed with a pink hue, but this is rather better in colour. I also reinforced the joint a bit. There is much that is still temporary in the scenery on this area, including the brick wall on the left, which is Hornby Skaledale and can't be curved. The tunnel mouths are Peco but recycled from my old layout, so really need to be replaced with better items too. Still, I am happy with the progress, slow as it is.

I have just picked up yet another class 33 diesel! I offered $100 (Aus) and that was accepted, so I am now the proud owner of a Heljan class 33/2, 33 207 Earl Mountbatten of Burma, in Railfreight Construction livery. It had most of the extra bits in the box, but I had to fit my own couplings (I use Bachmann straight ones in preference to Heljans cranked ones anyway), and was missing the light guides and a bogie step at one end only. I have some Heljan spare sprues of 33 bits somewhere, so may even have replacements for these if I am lucky. It tested fine on Dc, so now has a Zimo MX600 decoder fitted and runs fine on DCC as well. I really didn't need another 33, but at that price I couldn't resist.

Thanks Tony.

As a quick update, I found the spare light guides and installed them. I found quite a few other spares I have but not the bogie steps, so I am still down one set of steps. I may just scratchbuild a set using the existing ones as a pattern.

I must source a set of etched plates for it too.

A little bit of work for the layout, rather than on the layout: I have finally returned to the farm scene for the back corner. I have been gluing the hedges and fences on now that I am happy with the overall look. The front retaining wall will adjoin the railway and I am thinking of using a concrete texture for that. The small white patches are wet glue that "escaped"!

The etched name plates and shields for 33 207 arrived from Fox Transfers. I forgot to order the depot plates as well, so those will have to await another order (I usually try to buy more than one item to share the postal costs a bit).

I found that the etched plates were slightly shorter than the printed ones, so had to scrape off a little from the ends of the printed plates, which also removed a few small chips of paint. I found that a Humbrol grey #64 from the standard paint range was a very close match to the light grey, but unfortunately glossy against the satin finish, so had to matt varnish the touched up patches afterwards. I will eventually do a little light weathering on this locomotive too, so that will hide any very slight mismatches.
