Snow business


Recent weather and the arrival of two new steam locomotives with snowploughs in the accessory packs prompted MIKE WILD to give Shortley Bridge’s viaduct scene a quick winter makeover.

Winter comes to Shortley Bridge viaduct as an Oxford Rail ‘Dean Goods’ 0-6-0 leads a short freight across the road bridge. The snow scene has been created using Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow and plastic tree armatures.

In fact, that very day we were travelling back from the London Toy Fair behind DB Schenker Class 90 90028 Sir William McAlpine on the 4.06pm ‘Newark stopper’ from London King’s Cross and, as we plied north through Hertfordshire, we saw snow whistling past the window. Fortunately it hadn’t reached our home area, but there were plenty of pictures circulating to show where snow had settled in the country.
