Thanks all for the info on the paint for blue bricks I will look into it when my local model shop opens again. Will post more of the footbridge as the painting continues

Yes I agree Paul. I have too many projects that hit a snag for what ever reason, the V2's was waiting on a delivery pre scale(online) fourum from the UK which I thought would be about the normal 2 weeks, but was about 7 due to back logs of orders etc. ok I go off and start another project (NER signal box) which surprisingly I finished but I have not gone back to the V2's. Ok there is a half built NER station building, the snag is how to repair some over cut arch windows. So I moved to clean up the layout, here is where I had the buildings (for the paint, as this is a tenuous link to the topic) just need to finally assemble these. As the paints were out, I have another stalled project of a wills station I started the 10 years ago, which got a look in. So maybe I will finish off these buildings (and one demolished by Lyn by accident years ago, a reassemble and paint activity) then get back to the Locos.

The one thing about all of this is I am using the store of paints... but buying more colours. The other thing is my building painting is creating a bigger appreciation of how the paints behave and the use of various colours... and unusually for me writing them down in a spiral bound book of technics. So I can one day assist other people locally when asked how did you paint the York stone, brickwork etc. and include the humbrol colour and number. I already have a page on wagon painting! With technics and colours.

So back to the colour of engineering brick, Terry was I right with the blue?

1st coat of dark stone applied. There is a lot to be said for 1970s austerity grey applied to these bridges!!!!

Starting to paint the girder dark stone on the inside of the bridge to say the least it is very taxing!!!!!

Thank you for your comment. I was hoping to do some more tonight but my eyes had other ideas as I could not focus with the optivisor on so will try again at the weekend.

A dry run with the roof on the footbridge and brickwork on the signal box. Still need to do the engineer blue.
