Winter wonderland

A short notice track weekend has seen the stock siding up at Whitrope receive additional sleepers, sufficient to make it operational when required next year.
Whitrope has a very seasonal coating of snow this week and looks wonderful. I have come to the conclusion that autumn and winter are the Waverley’s defining seasons. It’s sending me off into some interesting modelling notions for when layout time arrives.
This week I’ve been attending also to Bachmann’s class 46 , No D186 as operating in 1967/8. Bachmann supply it ready weathered but I’m no great lover of factory applied weathering but it’s quite competently done for a ‘sausage machine’ job. Of course, being me, I just couldn’t stop myself attacking the model with a fibreglass pen, T Cut, washes and metalcote.
The result is before you. It would have looked superb up at Whitrope this afternoon!

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!

    Now that would look good drawing up to the home board on the Up road just outside the new signalbox.
