Proposed new layout for transportation by airline Eudunda South Australia

Hi All

Please see the video and the pictures of a proposed new layout which should be small enough to fit into two hard cases and be transported anywhere.

This is Eudunda, on the old Morgan line.

Should be interesting.

AHGXs weathered and running on Murray River Bridge

Hi All

Well I have managed to weather thirty odd AHGXs for my southline grain train.
I got them back together last night, and made a quick video of them being hauled by three 930s.

These are all brush painted, with two washes each, one for the fade and the other for road grime.

I am quite happy with the results.

Enjoy Scott

Fading away (working on weathering AN AHGXs)

This afternoon I got going fading the green AN AHGXs I also experimented with some of the ultra modern AHGXs I have not done all of them, to vary the level of fade.

Anyway step one is compete, fade out, then bring back with darker colours, add grime etc.
I find that if I wait overnight I can then use a cotton bud dipped in mineral turpentine to clean up, any bits of yellow that have an overwash of green.

I plonked a untouched AHGX to show you the difference.

Enjoy Scott
