I’m very impressed by the shading and weathering techniques used on aircraft and armour. I wonder how much could be applied to trains? And perhaps this is why I’m not getting much modelling done at present, apart from a lot of time spent rereading ‘Lord of the Rings.’

More overseas trains – on the Isle of Wight….
Adams Radials on the Lyme Regis branch. Beautiful little locos!
Under the Embankment
