Decorating is progressing steadily. Two rooms done another nearly finished, just hoping I don't have to start decorating the outside.
Previous posting was probably showing some of my frustration that I've no spare time for either hobby at the moment. Both comments that were left were correct. I was over complicating things, I have to concentrate on getting this house ready for sale or re-letting. Also a class 25 fitted with sound would be nice. Could not resist a quick search on the net for info on class 25's in Cornwall. Found a few photos, the one below were taken in 1976 so a little later than I am thinking but still nice shots.
I like the weathering on the front of this loco.
Clay wagons were not all white!! Nice
It looks like the top of the axle boxes have been weathered with clay dust but the bottoms are black, unless that is a shadow effect. I will have to learn some subtle weathering techniques to achieve anything like the above finish on my proposed fleet of wagons.
More photos of Class 25's can be found on this excellent reference site here.
Onwards and upwards and back to the decorating tomorrow.
