Hi peeps

This is a little project that's been lurking on my bench for a few weeks. It was an undecorated Sd24 locomotive, which I've painted up using some crap old decals for the road name. All the stripes were masked as the crappy old stripe decals disintegrated when they met Mr Water.

The before state...



The in-between bit...



And the finished thing

Very nice. Nice photography too. :)

I've been getting the rail itch recently. I'm thinking about building a small American n scale layout over summer.

Hi Steve
the numberboards aren't the greatest fit, I need to faff around with them a little to get them looking all pretty.

If you look at the road numbers you'll see that the left side is missing a digit - the result of some old decals disintegrating, and not having another of the same number. I won't be losing any sleep over it though! :whistle:

Cheers

Mike
