Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Don’t be ridiculous

Continuing my look at weathering which is real but if you put on a model railway people would think you’d made a mess of it…

This row of houses is close to where I live and have a fine view of the East Coast mainline. The roofs have suffered quite an interesting weathered effect but I just don’t think you’d get away with it in the modelling world – people would think you’d made a right hash of it. As always, truth is stranger than fiction.

Having now officially reached middle age, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
