Very mild, some sunny periods between heavy clouds: rather boisterous cool N.wind, but an improvement. Managed to get all I needed at local shops. Covered re-modelled tail of 34 ins model with yellow tissue and doped it - looks well. Am eager to test this model now; it should be an exceptional performer. Walk along rail path in evening; a Lord Nelson loco.was standing on a siding at Merton Hall Road.
