Links for the weekend

Nick Falconer posted this on NGF, but it bears repetition – especially for the amazing vertical fiddle yard.  Ladies and gentlemen, please don’t try this at home…..

American based, but a good primer on freight yards….

British Railways, 1959 style….

BBC says that Titanic-linked train carriages discovered in yard.  They appear to be old LSWR boat train coaches, that pre-dated the ‘Ironclads’.

And and interesting site, looking at making mainly plastic aircraft and armour kits. Modelling Weekly – YouTube.  Not quite our thing, but what I found interesting is the painting methods, airbrushing the models with black and light grey primer to give shadow and wear and tear effects.  Easier watched than explained.  Try this one.  Does it have any railway applications for weathering models?

Have a good weekend!!
