Bachmann Devious Diesel - Rework begins

So whilst it's one of the better models Bachmann have made, I'm still not too keen on their model of Diesel. Don't get me wrong, everything appears to be accurate on it, the problem lies with the glossy finish on the loco itself. Whilst a coat of matt or satin varnish could solve such a problem, I'm going down a different route to do mine.

I've yet to decide what paint to put him into. Part of me is thinking a matt charcoal black, so I can retain a dark look whilst keeping the paintwork dull. I guess I'll decide upon it over a few days.

More bashing fodder?

Well, as soon as I get the Jouef 0-6-0 bash looking how I want it to, Hornby go and announce this.

The locomotive in question is a Sharp Stewart product. Suffice to say, I think i'll have a fleet of these 0-6-0s by the end of the year.

Hornby R9684 "Murdoch"

Got to say, this is one of the newer characters I like. When Hornby announced they were making him, I knew I had to get him. When I did, I wasn't disappointed.

Video coming soon!
