This is probably the last post from Longreach as we are leaving on Saturday for home - and the train shed! 4 years in the bush minus my main layout has been at times quite depressing particularly as I would (like I did today) get some nice models and not have anywhere nice to run them (the RR and SYWP 101s arrived today). I won't have my layout probably until the New Year but it will be much closer (at 30 mins instead of 12 hours drive!) than it has been in a while, and with my full set of tools and my shed, I can make a proper start on some of the plans I have, together with faster progress on some of the things which I have started whilst out here.
The last bit of modelling was done today - I got some black on the K class. Tonight I have spent some time sorting out and packing away my work bench.
Photo of the K below - looks pretty good. Once I get the steps on, I will do some detail painting before looking at the transfers - then there is the tender bogies and I will be done.
