Even though I have been away from my blog for a few months, there has been some activity at the work bench. I finished off a 4mm scale model of Track Inspection Coach No. DB999508 in NR yellow recently. It will run with a NR yellow DBSO No. 9701 and a Class 31 – just for the fun of it.
Progress on my layouts has been at a stand still in recent weeks because of the very warm weather. With temperatures in the high 20s (degrees centigrade) and intense sunlight, the cabin has been a tad warm for comfort! A shot of the new Track Inspection Coach and a DBSO operating over Folkestone East was possible on one of the cooler days! The TIC was built from a multi-media kit produced by Britannia Pacific Models. The DBSO from a good old fashioned Airfix Mark 2d model. In fact, it was converted some time ago from a Pete Harvey kit and has been in finished condition for a while. It was featured in my blog pages a few months ago.
