Another wagon picked up off Ebay, fitted with Accucraft couplings 😀

Oooh shiny and nice; the delights and tribulations of Ebay surfing. I took one look at this loco online and it fell into my shopping basket 😃 A 2-8-2 Bagnall scratch built from plasticard with some metal fittings (using an LGB 0-8-0 28001 chassis)
Slightly overlarge for my needs; perhaps some nice new carriages to go with ? This loco needs a visit to the works for adjustments to improve operation around my Radius 1 curves - it should works but sticks - it needs some tweaks; also in need of some small repairs.

I've been buying up some suitable signals for the garage layout off Ebay; 3 obtained so far and one more auction result awaited.
The signals will need some TLC and stands; the bracket signal will be used for parts to make one or two single sempahore signals. The plan is to have starter signals for each station; another 'winter' project.

Picked up an old MDA G scale Speeder, had to stick it together as the old plastic clips that held it together were getting a bit loose. Its had a quick test on the garage layout - works well.
It is going to be a 'winter' project, to build an upper part with seats - maybe something like a Wickham trolley.

My empty war game table makes a suitable place to let the paint dry on the telegraph poles prepared for the garage layout....

Picked up a couple of Bachmann telegraph poles off Ebay; quite reasonable plastic mouldings. I painted three with the insulators and bases a light grey. These have been put out on the garden layout to bring a bit more visual realism to the station, signal box and halt.
