    • HI Mick, I finely got a good pic using the iPad's zoom to get a pretty god pic of that bird I have being waiting for called the pale-headed-rosella.   I will have to remember to bring out my good camera tomorrow now I know he is coming bard for a drink in the birth bath, there are other colours of that bird, he has a mate that comes in as well and if we are luck they bring in their babies too. Glad to be home from Hospital, slowly getting back into the layout only in the early morning, too hot during the day, some relief in site  rain coming in next Tuesday in time for when the kids go back to school piece and quiet in the shopping centers. Tony from down under.  
    • Now I am home from hospital have finely made a start on cutting out and gluing the black paper and white strips that make up the exhaust vents , thwo pics show how I am making the vents. On top of the vents there are three doors on the same panel didn't know that till my friend sent me more pics, will have guess where the three doors go going by the pics.   Tony from down under very hot here and no rain in site.
    • It's easy to forget that this project is meant to be a garden railway.  I must put some effort in this year to get this outside and have a run of track down through the flowerbed to the shed.  
    • Have finished the new center piece of the shell roof , turned out well,  if I need to run wires through I can now, tossing If I replace the two ends or have a go at stripping the old paint off, a few layers to tackle, don't want to sand because of  where the lights go  In the second pic there is a grove line lining up with the walk way I will do the same, yes I will paint the loco in Union Pacific colours to match the DD40/A loco. Get back to the layout next weekend depending on the heat, be light duties finishing the spiral corner module , being a stinker of a summer, my plants are dying lack of rain and me not being here for two weeks , they get a hose this afternoon Tony from down under keeping on moving ahead  
    • I am finely home from hospital on Friday, still under the hospital till tomorrow, can't do to much at the moment too hot outside, going to be losing some plants soon  in the garden if we don't get rain. I have decided to pull out an old project I started a few years back and didn't finish, have decided to finish it, the loco is a DD35/B loco , have started in cutting the center of the loco and replace the solid bit with a hollow tube. Was thinking of replacing the ends, will leave at this stage, cut the plastic packing of to top of the ends ,any ideas of pain striping how I go about that, only have the ends to strip off. The loco is duel powered, looking at replacing the old motors for new ones  Tony from down under keeping on moving ahead
