Oh, and what's your secret with couplings?
Oh sorry I forgot to reply to this post last time! All the heavy rail stock here has automatic couplings, at the standard height of 28mm above the rail head. The tramway stock has tramway link and pin couplings, with adapters to couple to autos if required.

Hey, I'm only being creative here.

Some nice photo work here, to say nothing of the modelling. The first two photos both, play with light in interesting ways.
I originally meant to repaint the LGB passenger car, but to be honest I kind of like it as is.
It blends well with that loco, although the yellow isn't exactly the same.
So why did you plan to repaint it in the first place? Something about the livery itself? Or are you like me, i.e. unable to leave things the way they came?

Bit of both really, there are very few items or rollingstock in the fleet that haven't been modified in some way. For this particular car I always intended to paint it in the fleet colour schem of green and cream. It has already been modified by fitting automatic couplings.

I have seen your little lawn mower. Are there any photos from underneath? What blades do you use?
