I was able to watch a few seconds of the video ( after a few minutes of download time. Hey, I can only move the beads on this abacus, just so fast ) Thumbsup Thumbsup Thumbsup
That first trestle is a major piece of work. :o Thumbsup I've only ever done smaller ones.
When the tour car finally gets back here, I'll have to have a flat rigged for the two "half size" cars, and set it between the tour car, and the HO backup car.
It has been quite an experience seeing the tour cars in all the different venues. 8-) Thumbsup Thumbsup

There was a big surprise for the crew of the goods shed at Exeter (St Dayle's) this morning.
A rather odd collection of rolling stock had come through the Trans-Atlantic Tunnel.
   
and we see that all care had been taken to protect the shipment.

In model railroading, there are between six and two hundred ways of performing a given task.
Most modellers can get two of them to work.

After a bit of consternation and a request to the main depot, a pair of converter wagons were located and a train set up.

   

   
Our most modern goods power with dual braking capabilities (Vacuum and the new-fangled compressed air) was supplied: Q1 N0. C8.
   


When all the clearances are received, the urgently required cargo of
50,000 lbs of scented kitty litter will be delivered where it is needed.

"50,000 lbs of *scented kitty* litter" Eek :o Confusedhock:

That's either the largest "litter" of kittens, or a normal litter of really big cats !! 357 357
Four foot modules? or just four foot backboards? Nice scenic work on the backdrops !!
Happy you were able to "find" the converter wagons, BBG100119 looks good on that train ! It's an interesting mix!

We're still trying to find out who ordered the litter.
The backboards are Peco (mostly) backscenes, mounted on foamcore.

Well, the litter was initially for Meow the 39 lbs cat. But sadly poor Meow went to the big litter box in the sky yesterday. Perhaps a local zoo can use it to litter box train their Lions and Tigers and Bears... oh my!

The Perth and Exeter has been subjected to Industrial Action for the past few weeks. But we are back on and the load of kitty litter was delivered.

The next lading is destined for Windermere in the Lake District. It should get there tomorrow.

You do know that when mixed with GERN, kitty litter expands three times its size when it hits the air... 357 Icon_lol
