I agree with Peter, and the loco looks MUCH better now that when it was shiny green!

My Little John is back from a sound conversion done by Locoworks.

Here is a video. Listen, look and enjoy it ... :D
(Please ignore the shaking video - it was difficult to operate both camera and r/c-transmitter at same time)

Here is a new wagon for the PHRy - a Roundhouse "Three Plank Coal Wagon".

Heavy weathering:
The wood is stained with acrylic paint mixed with isopropanol. The brass was painted with rust colors and powder.
I also did change to IP Engineering 20mm wheels instead of those plastic wheels who came with the kit.

This wagon will probably end up on a siding filled up with scrap and junk.

That finish is so realistic, well done.

Like it! Suitably, and realistically grotty. Good job there, sir!

Traffic Pattern? What pattern? Spuds out; grain in, but cattle, sheep and passengers are a lot less predictable.

That's superb! I'm inspired to return to grotty truck building...

Thanks for the photos,

Andrew.

I'm very impressed with the truck, but equally with the scenic work you have done on your railway which I have previously overlooked because of concentrating on your stock. Well done for a great job all round.

A little engine and tipper wagons has arrived at the Pine Hill Railway (PHRy). :D
The engine is a IP Engineering Orenstein & Koppel kit, and the tipper wagons are from Slaters.

This little train will soon run on a new line - from a copper mine to a loading silo.

I have he SM45 version of the IP O&K loco, and really like it. It can handle either a single coach or a couple of vans, so it handles an awful lot of the winter traffic.

Looking good as always!

As those above have said, that little three plank wagon is superbly weathered. Hard to believe the metal work is actually brass. The sound unit in the Little John sounds just right too, very impressive!

Great work, Kjell. Really impressed with the way you've represented rust on the tipplers and on that open wagon. I've never been happy with my weathered wood finish but the effect on that open wagon is great. I must give it a try.

Hello again ...

It's a long time since I have posted any news from my garden railway - due to work and other activities. Since my pictures at dropbox can't be seen here anymore, I will have to reload all the pics in this tread. This will take some time - but they will be here in some time.

Here are my latest updates from my norwegian garden railway - "The Pine Hill Railway (PHRy)".
New coaches and waggons. And new structures around a coming coppermine. Enjoy it ...


Coaches and waggons

Image
Now I have 2 Brandbright coaches - I like them very much - next will be a Directors Salon.

Image
The last coach on the line is a kitbashed coach of a norwegian style. Second and third compartment (actually first and second in UK-term)

Image

Image
A heavy weathered hopper - a Piko waggon given a lot of heart ... :P

Structures and lineside pics

Image

Image

Image
A silo made of acrylic and wood. The concrete look is plaster on the acrylic-boards - and weathered to look like old and stained concrete.
The building on top is made of wood and stained with some powder pigments and white spirit.


Image
Mickey got a lovely visitor at the workshop - Betty Bop ... :lol:

Image
The Minions at the gas-pump.

Image
Passengers at the station waiting for the afternoon-train.

I really like the purple colour of your coaches. What paint did you use? They look very smart.
