Maybe I can build a small set for LS...if not, I'll just have to wait till I move out of the house once I turn 22 (I'm hoping to stay home through college). 8 more years to go...yayy Tongue

I love those pictures ThomasFan247! My favourite is the James and the Toby one because they look like promo shots from the TV series. You have such a well done layout as well.

A suggestion for the Thomas board. Fights seen to start easily here and it just doesn't look good on the forum, so can we please stop them occuring? Anyway when you think about, it's pretty silly because anyone involved is fighting about a model train range based on a children's show!

Post some pics of your layout in the layout thread. I'm interested to see the entirety of it. Three questions:

1. How did you manage/what is your method for such successful painting of the coupling hooks on Thomas, Percy, James, Henry, Gordon, and Toby? I am contemplating doing this myself.

2. How did you manage to paint James' smoke-box so neatly? I have had a go at it, but it doesn't look exactly right. Due to the faulty decals, I am also now without the black lining for James' wheel-arches as well (I'm looking into decal paper.).

3. What did you do for the rear coupling on Percy?! I'm sad that Bachmann didn't put it on there in the first place.

Some clarity would be great.

Much appreciated and happy modelling

Once my layout is complete, which I'm hoping to be done next weekend, I will have tons of pictures posted Wink

1. I took a very small amount of red acrylic paint on a paint brush and brushed it over the entire hook. I repeated this until there is a solid coat. Then I take another very small amount of paint, this time black, and paint it on the hook OR I use a black sharpie marker.

2. Back in 2009 I used a black sharpie to "paint" his smoke box and wheels. I masked the surrounding are with regular tape, but the tape was out of place and the line on one side of his smoke box is a little crooked Tongue

3. My 12 year old cousin stepped on my Annie when he was 8, so I had an old Annie chassis laying around. I used my Dremel (small hand-held saw) and cut the coupler off and super glued it onto his back foot plate. Then I painted it as I did with all my other engines.

Hope this helps! And I'll be glad to answer any questions! Also, thanks for all the comments everybody!! Cheesy

Uh sure, ok, and if you listen very carefully you will hear the familiar sound of no one caring.


Anyway Butch has his first speaking role tomorrow.

Much appreciated, sir. Now I can have a go at the couplings once I get around to finishing up James. Roll Eyes I also noticed how you painted Annie and Clarabel's chassis-es black. That is next on my list as well. As for the hint of more pictures to come, I can't wait. Some layout pics would be nice. You seem to have a good hand at scenery.

Again, thanks! By the way, the layout should be completed by this Saturday, so you can expect new pictures this week!

The signal was from a Tomy/Tomica Thomas set. I don't remember what it was called, but it was the one that included Thomas, Percy, black Troublesome Trucks, Elizabeth, Elsbridge station with the working crossing, and the station that made Caroline swivel when the tracks were set to 'Stop.'
