All of my steam locomotives are now equipped with brackets to hold classification flags – something about which I’ve already written – so the full roster is now in regular service. Here’s the lineup at the start of a session:
CNR 1532 is on the mixed train today, so it’s not carrying white flags. CNR 1560, 80 and 86 are ready to run as freight extras. (CNR 902 is parked behind one of these trains so is not in the picture.)
I will have to do something about that.
I’m looking for a suitable set of drawers to put under the layout, below the sector plate. Since they need to be pretty shallow to make best use of the space, I expect I’ll have to build my own. No rush on this.
I should remove some of the excess equipment from the sector plate area – including that beautiful (but entirely inappropriate) S scale version of the Flying Yankee. (What can I say? I used to model the Boston and Maine in HO and thought the River Raisin Models import would make a lovely mantlepiece model…) I need to paint and finish the brass tank cars too – but in the meantime, they can go back in the display case in my office.
