I am slowly making progress with the modifications and improvements to my British N Gauge model train layout. My previous attempt at a branch line has been dismantled (I salvaged any useful parts) and I have added a more sensible and carefully constructed branch line (with storage sidings).
As can be seen from the above photograph I have painted the horizontal “rails” on all of the buffer stops – as far as I can tell (from a few Google image searches) this is the colour they should be. Eventually I will paint the wooden uprights and the stone ballasting as well.
From the point of view of locomotives and rolling stock I may have reached the point where I have everything I want/need. In fact you could probably argue I reached this point a few months back… Anyway, the latest additions are running very well. I am particularly happy with the new Graham Farish Class 08 shunter – it is a work of art (and it doesn’t stall on my points when running very slowly like the older version).
