That looks great Frank! The blacker you make it the better. I'll bet that after 20 or 30 years you wouldn't even be able to see the color of the stone. Maybe on the top edges from the rain washing off the coal dust.

Is that true? Does coal dust wash off that easily, or does it stain the surface? I'm guess I'm too young to know the answer to that! :roll:

Frank,
       Can I refer you back to Ianbo's original question in post 12....What WAS that circular hole in the door for???(I'm dying to know...I've noticed them on the N gauge ones too,and always wondered what they were for.)

Forgot about this one, sorry folks.
I think it is to provide access to the door latch. They are twin doors on the top and latch together in the middle. I don't reckon the cows are intelligent enough to suss it though :mutley

Doug,
thanks for that link in your post above.
All very interesting. I think I can safely tone mine down a bit more then without over doing it.
The pictures I presented earlier are a little over exposed really. In reality the stone work is a lot darker than it looks.
I've got a bit of time to spare today so SWMBO permitting I'll do a bit more work to it and post an updated picture.

Nice Model Frank:thumbs 

 Did you research the design at all.............I ask because I am just about to start a coal stage for the TT area I am developing at Granby

I am inclined to agree it could be a bit grimier

Kind Regards

Frank, thanks for that earlier reply, yes, I used a coupling pole but with finer wire on a length of rail, I agree it does require a certain dexterity and the ability to get at the coupling. Couplings of that nature are undoubtedly more realistic even if hard on the back and eyesight.

I add 1/4oz weights to my wagons, they come in strips and look rather like those that can be used to balance a cars wheels. I'm not sure who makes them, but they can be readily got here in the US. I buy them from Jim's Junction, Billings, Montana, http://www.jimsjunction.com and John Olson offers a world wide service.
