Tender has been duly rattle canned with matt black, just needs the flying Rio Grande decals. I have a set somewhere in the house but can I find them............

Liking what I have done with the Aristo long steel tender that I have had for years I remembered seeing another for sale at GRS some time ago, had a look and it was still there. The operative word here being 'was' because it's now mated upto mallet 251 and it is going to be kept as a coal burner. As soon as I get 250's chip back from Massoth via Mark I will post pics of them togetber, 250 being an oil burner.

I used to have this on the forum many moons ago so rather than trying to find it I thought I would start again. It will never come close to some of the offerings on here, I am not even a mediocre modeller, big hands etc. When I open a pot of paint my fingers are full of it before I reach for the brush, let's not mention glue!
Winton has seen many guises over the last 15 years and recently had a big rebuild for the construction of a fence hugging circuit with 10' diameter curves for the new Rio Grande F7A+B and stock.
There has also been a recent land grab that I appear to have got away with and together with the town is the subject of these few pics. I finish my part time work at the end of June and hope to have July, August and September on the railway but I have applied for a seasonal post at Blackpool zoo as an engine driver!!View attachment 239453View attachment 239454View attachment 239455
Great envy is mine.

After a nice walk along a breezy prom time for a train, two lgb 2-4-0's consisted with a mixed ore and coal train, the loco's look well together being broad and bulky. They share a recently repaired lgb american sound unit that I'm still playing with cv3 to get the chuffs rightish.
