Tri-ang Transcontinental shunter refurbishment
OK, there is a black dock shunter already in there but I didn't have the yellow version for shunting Giraffe Cars.
My model worked perfectly on Code 100 track but the knurled wheels aren't Code 75 friendly. I've oiled the bearings and cleaned the commutator with an evil fibre pen, but these things are bomb-proof so it's no surprise there.
The roof was looking a bit tired. I masked it with tape and kitchen foil before spraying with Halfords matt black. I tried satin, but the result was too shiny to my eyes.
