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

Bits and pieces

Leave a comment

Managed to get a few bits done before the start of a hectic week.

On the 43xx front I started painting the cab shutters and fitted the new buffers to the tender – and yes, some Dean tenders did get Collett buffers before anyone says otherwise!

On the railcar front I did some detail painting, putting a bit of exhaust staining on the roof with dry-brushing.

With a couple of days off work now I’m hoping to get some more done.

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 and Beamish. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
