    An understandable reaction under the circumstances. That sounded all wrong, so what I’m trying to say is we will still be here when you feel you want to come back and share some more modelling time with us.

    A bit further with the N6. Just noticed transfer carrier paper on axle box oops. I now need to source small transfer letters for "LOCO" above door in 9" top extension on wagon.

    Another going through works. Brake leavers and guards all soldered/glued in place and all chemical blacked after this photo. Will paint the wagon tonight. Only another 50 to do!!! Load still to make.

    Crikey! That makes my backlog of projects look manageable... Keep up the good work.

    Thanks Adam. I must admit once I have the wagons built I will start to think about a layout to run them on. I have an idea of what type and size of layout I want after reading cameo layouts by Mr Rice now all I have to do is build it.

    More work on the wagons. the underframe/metal work are a mixture of Ambis, Bill Bedford, ABS and scratch built. Just got to chemcal black again in places and paint then on to the next.

    Thought this wagon would be a quick one with just a wheel set change how wrong could I have been!!!!! Tried to fit wheels but just dug in to the plastic pinpoint. Drilled out and fitted brass bearings but still too tight so decided to fit Masokits W iron spring units and all the other replacement parts. Not so quick after all.
