I had a stroke in December 2010, and while i,am recovering i decided to scratch build a 1/24 scale railway on oo/ho rail. So i decided to make a Railcar, the chassis is an old intercity 125.

Well done Mike. You've got more patience than I have. Good work on the attention to detail. Hints of rust on the exhaust of the green industrial loco - nice touch!

Is that Peco track or Hornby ? When I made a fixed layout for my (then) young son to play with (THE perfect excuse!), I painted the rails with Humbrol "Rust" and just wiped the railhead clean. Looked quite authentic.

Keep up the good work AND the recovery.

Grumpy Pinz. (Less of the "old" Bert !!!)
