I was never a train spotter either, so you are not on your known. :roll:

However does it look a bit like a Fowler of some kind? :-?

But whatever it is MSTS needs it. :D :D :D

Good luck
Doug

What is it Dave? Where did they run? BTW you should be able to post Atomic album links in the forum so that the picture shows? All I'm seeing is links. They work but just thought I'd mention it. :)

Looks nice Dave, try smoothing off a few of the additions to the loco.

I've found that MSTS doesn't like small parts added as details.

My ignorance shines once more.
These cabs are in the Library:-

Well I read it over and over and couldn't see it as the missing coma would have made it..... Then it clicked :roll:

I once had an English Teacher who said "when in doubt the best punctuation mark is the FULL STOP". His point was that it was all very well constructing clever long sentences with elaborate punctuation but could the same thing be made clearer with a number of shorter sentences. Shame I only remember his point too late...... :-?
