Dummy track (not a track for dummies)

It must be a record for me ... 5 days without a blog update... As well as being VERY cold in the shed (its currently -4 with the heater on !) I have also just not really in the mood for modelling. These urges come and go I guess.

Tonight I managed 45 mins before getting too cold and loosing interest.

I have added a new track at the front of the silos.



I have toyed with this idea for a while but couldn't work out how to connect it in to the existing plan, it seemed like too big an industry to not have its own spur. Then i realised it didn't need to be connected ..



The track serves 2 purposes

1) it is a scenic addition.

2) it doubles as a great camera track..



At some point I will build a custom camera truck with a low centre well and screw fixing to allow the camera to swivel.

in the mean time before evacuating the shed for warmer climes I did one test video.

Got to come home early as I set of at 5:45 this morning to be in Liverpool for a meeting. Not sure how cold it was when I set of but the local radio station reported -10 in central Manchester our nearest city, normally it 4 - 5degrees colder here. hen my wife did the school run at 8:30 her car was reading -11

Will be happy when its all gone !

Tug Boat Paint job

I have not done a great deal of modelling this week, partly due to other commitments, partly due to the cold weather and this last couple of days, due to the path down to the shed  being buried under 6-7" of snow.
I have been tinkering with a paint job on the river push tug, sat at the dinner table.
