Tying up loose ends… for those following my Miami NW 22nd St layout

Well the original idea for this blog was to charter my build of my Miami ho layout before it went to exhibition.
That exhibition came and went and the layout was built in time. It received some really good comments. So for those who are/were interested here is a batch of photos taken of the layout on the day of the exhibition before the doors opened.

Please feel free to ask questions or leave comments. There are more photos if people would like to see them. The layout still exists and is available for exhibition if any one is interested.

A fresh start…

Well its been well over a year since I last posted. So I thought it wise to give the blog a make over and start over. I’ve decided to keep track of all my modelling projects and some real life railwayana on this blog, so your going to see a mix of US HO modelling mixed in with my British outline modelling to P4 and now my new endeavour US On30 Narrow gauge modelling!

More of all of these topics to come over the next few days and weeks.

Trucks

Well I missed the postman yesterday but I’ve managed to pick them up from the sorting office this morning. I’ve managed to get all of my shipments from the States without any stinging handling fees this end which I’m pretty chuffed about.

Anyway my Boley fridge vans have arrived, hopefully I can get some more of these including a flat bed or two. However Boley have stopped licensing them so their supply if very limited so if you get a chance to get hold of some then go for it before its too late!

I have photos of these not great quality but taken this morning.

These will become the Domingo produce vans, i haven’t decided if I’m going to repaint the cabs yet, maybe but again not before the show.

I’m hopefully going to be able to recreate the Ford cargo reefer out of a Herpa/Reitze model, I can get hold of an add on fridge unit for above the cab a nice little repaint and that should compliment the Boley quite well.

Well happy trucking…
