Chronicling the development of my 5-gauge 4mm scale model railway with a few off-topic insights thrown in for free

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.

Now in my fourth decade, 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, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
