Still plugging on with ballast and scenery, but to make a bit of a distraction for myself and getting an old model finished, I bought the Sentinal railcar out of it's box, and had a good fiddle, wiring the motor up and building the undergubbins, the only big thing left is the steps, so the soldering iron has be bought inside, to make them, here's where we are at the moment.

If you want it to go round corners, Terry, stick the steps on the bogies not the body.

Wilco, JW, I'm lucky (?) as there are foot steps on the motor bogie that do line up with the door, but will fit the steps on the rear bogie.

That should add a nice bit of additional character to Edgeware.
Bachmann A2 to A2/3: from my thread in Model Railways page 56 to 83, also

Hornby A3 to A1/1 Great Northern: from page 84, in resin from page 108.


Apologies for so many missing images - see page 1 for reasons & possible solution.

Still plugging on with the ballasting and a bit of scenery, here's a few pics.
