For September’s Model Rail, https:modelrail I’ve been very fortunate and privileged to have Albion Yard featured as one of the magazine layouts and be on the front cover. Inside are some brilliant pictures from Chris Nevard http://nevardmedia and there is an unusual twist to some of them, a hint of which is below.
The layout as I’ve mentioned previously is on its last year of shows so have a look at the diary page for the last few if you’d like to see it ‘in person’. The issue is a good one and if you like Western Hydraulics George Dent has an excellent piece on weathering three of the most popular candidates available and there’s a flavour of it here http://faded-glory.html
On my workbench is the Rat Pack, a variety of assorted Class 24’s and 25’s having a programme of subtle modifications, there’ll be more on those soon with information on other ways to tackle your baby Sulzers.
And in best Blue Peter tradition, here’s two I did earlier, these are early variants with Shawplan detailing. Roof details are a pain on these types as it almost seems no two have the same roof panel configuration. A type to try and work from photographs on!
