As coach building continues for New Street, much of it is more of the same and to some extent so is thisnse-mk1

Another Bachmann mk1, fitted with replica bogies and the usual details. Like the rest of my Bachmann based NSE liveried stock I repainted the blue to something lighter which I feel better matches the early vehicles so painted. The IC liveried coach behind was completed at the same time.

    I love your continued level of detail, do you have an idea now where you are percentage wise on stock for BNS?

    No. it’s best not to think about it like that as it can easily get overwhelming if you do.

    I think I’d drive myself crazy if I didn’t know personally, I like to have a target in mind. Even playing sandbox style games on the pc, I like to plan what my end game will be and roughly how I’m going to get there

    I can understand that but for me New Street has never been about the end game. It’s always been about the journey. If it keeps me busy for ever and never gets finished I’d still be happy.

    That’s the most important thing, it’s a hobby and shouldn’t ever become a chore. If you are enjoying it, then the destination is a secondary consideration

    Hi Jim what shade of blue have you used as it looks spot on? The railmatch NSE blue I have looks too dark.
