Today it was time to say goodbye to some old friends which have been a fixture on the shelf above my modelling desk for many months.
They are, from the back, the WHR Romanian ballast wagon, the KMX tamper and the FR's rail mounted cherry picker.
Himself has taken them away to Bron Hebog HQ in Oxfordshire for painting. We've been on holiday together for the last week on the beautiful Hebridean island of Islay - which explains the lack of posts.
Islay, by the way, is highly recommended, especially if you take a recreational interest in Malt Whisky and mirco-brewed real ales. (Hic!)
Back at the workbench this week I'll be aiming to resume progress on rebuilt Barn 106 as well as an order for models of 105 and 102. I'm also going to try to get to grips with transfer resin rivets on the pair of 7mm ballast wagons.
