Lead-ing the way

Much work recently has been focussed on my O-14 emerging layout here: http://ohfourteen.blogspot.com/

But that doesn't mean that there isn't thought going into 009 either.

Firstly I have to report the arrival of some self adhesive lead strip (used to create fake stained glass windows) which is cheap, comes on long rolls and at either 4 or 6mm wide is perfect for adding weight to wagons/carriages etc.  Being self adhesive there is no work involved at all.
The other news is that today my wife reports the arrival of my latest acquisition, courtesy of the talented hands of Rob Waller (Boston Largs works) - I can't wait to get back from France to check it out.  It will need a few details like the mesh floors and vac pipes (oh and bogies) adding, but it is basically complete and as you can see from Rob's blogs, it looks the business. cool :-) http://bostonlargsworks.blogspot.com/2011/01/just-outshopped.html
