Locoyard Update

Just a super-quick update tonight.  I’ve spent what little spare-time I’ve had during the past couple of evenings, wrestling with a soldering iron (yes, a painful experience!) and have now successfully chipped the Bachmann 8F Austerity.  It is pictured above in the yard after some time running in and some sterling work hauling some mark one’s.  I will add a DCC fitting guide sometime in the future and a review of the locomotive, that I’m very pleased with!  It was a wonderful present from my wife and a colourful addition to the yard’s fleet.  It also nicely fill’s the previous 2-8-0 gap in my collection
