Hi Martin,
I can't for the life of me remember where I got the sacks from, they are ready made of hard plastic. I merely painted them a sort of buff Hessian colour then gave them a thin wash of dark grey acrylic. I wish I knew where I got them as I wouldn't mind a few more.



A view looking down the yard towards the engine shed, the GMC railtruck is just setting off for a day's work in the fields.



The Opel receiving some attention while the GMC truck starts up in readiness for a days work.



The Lister towing a small Sidelines four wheeled wagon. This model is not dissimilar to some of the wagons used on the Nocton estate railway.



A contrast in fronts, three different shunters used to do the main line work. I say main line it was a track that went all round the fields and temporary track was laid into the fields at harvesting time.
On the Nocton Estate for instance on its 7800 acres there was almost 23 miles of single track. There was also track used for a large number of sidings and temporary track that brought the total to around 35 miles.
