Years ago i bought an OO/HO scale skip but never got to use it. I found it recently and i thought i would finally give it a job: augmenting one of the buffers on Eskalon. Obviously the English lettering had to go so a grubby grey / rust effect mixture has been used to repaint it and i've also added a "coal" load. I'll probably give it a bit more painting later on but it looks quite good for now. Here it is plus a couple more recent pics.

The overhead view is now slightly out of date. I've moved the layout slightly so 2 sides are against walls which means the left hand side of the layout now has a better backdrop of a blank white wall instead of boxes and bags of ballast! I've also begun a bit of a tree avenue in the near left-hand corner of the layout. As its now against the wall its sheltered against accidental knocks so i feel safer putting trees there. The gas station has also been augmented with some painting and some people.
