Bulleid Q1 Release date and article, and those pink locomotives!

I'm pleased to say that the Q1 is now signed off and it will be early July when it's released on Steam.
There is also an article on the Engine Driver website about the Bulleid Q1.. and me! Click here to read it

And now to the next project..
I've heard a few interesting ideas about the "pink" locos I hinted at the other week - most of them about undercoat and primer.
All good ideas, however these ones are a really, really bright pink.
I basically used the obscure (and some might saw obscene!) colour so I could tell the test locos and stock from the real ones - just to make sure there is not any confusion whilst I test.

So here is an image of what I had.. a pink 56xx, coupled between 2 pairs of pink steam railmotors! Now remember that these are just place holder objects whilst I test various scripting and interactions - once that testing is complete and more importantly, successful, then I start to build the actual stock.

I don't think it's going to take a huge amount of imagination to guess what I've been working on.

More details to follow soon...
