Building Wrenton - Page 23
Until recently there was only one coal train on the layout consisting of a mix of fitted and unfitted wagons. The ex-WD hauls it through the station.
But now there's another one.
A batch of Peco wagon kits have been assembled and painted, some seven-plank wagons and some steel ones. The wooden vehicles have joined the train of loaded wagons and the steel ones have been formed into a train of empties, with some of the existing models adding some extra length. The next photo shows some of the kits during construction.
The north bound empties wait in the lay-by siding while the loaded train passes south bound.

This time the Midland 4F heads south with the loaded coal train.
And the ex-WD is in charge of a mixed freight train.

The ex-WD heads back north passing a Jubilee with a passenger train.
A dirty 4MT tank meets a pristine 5MT.

A return to tree making, intended for a possible future project.
These were made using my usual twisted wire technique.
The next one is a low-relief specimen.
Here's a rear view of the same tree.
