Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Nice! I particularly like the bolster set - that's on my list too. MDF is an add choice for axleboxes, isn't it?! Lovely cheap kits, but less of a bargain when you've bought new axleboxes! I've got two Binnie slate wagons in their FR guise and another one awaiting construction which will represent t...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Andrew; will you do any rainbow carriages? Tempted to do a pink summer carriage... Hello! When I started down this whole WHR route that was my plan - I thought I'd build eight WHR carriages in four pairs, painting one green and the other in a "rainbow" livery. In reality though it takes me about si...

Thanks Mitch,

I really enjoyed that - your loco looks great, and I loved the variety of trains on show too, literally all shapes and sizes!

All the best,

Andrew.

Two very nice looking Locos, Mitch. You should be well proud of them...
Absolutely! That Sammie's stunning in red, good choice! I look forward to seeing pictures of it in action...

All the best,

Andrew.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

That's a GEM of a joke Tom, you really put your FINGER on it... Sorry! Actually, my wife's also got in on the act. With a completely straight face she asked me which railway the wagon ran on, so delighted at this unusual interest in the minutiae of my hobby I told her... "And was that during the Ffe...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Interesting use materials for this build Andrew. It's look great already. Thanks Rod! One of the reasons I'm doing this one now is to assess the suitability of the method for other projects, including my proposed Kerr Stuart diesel. The jury's still out - it works quite well, but foamboard seem to ...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hello again! Here's a quick update on the progress I've made this week... The small WHR open has now been assembled and painted - lettering will be next. The ironwork is mostly ready to go, I just need to assemble some axleguards. They've turned up now, but last weekend I'd misplaced the little roll...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I do like the red you use Andrew. I saw Bachmann painted one of their 009 WD wagons in "WHR red". Is there any references on the WHR liveries? I would like to use red for the Swift Sixteen D wagon but ideally would like a reference to this livery actually existing. Hello! Boyd says that "repainting...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

the gauge does have a tendency to fill with steam, Andrew, if that is happening, it's more than likely that the bourdon tube is split. Although I have soldered one successfully it probably indicates a replacement is required. Grant. Thanks Grant - I had to Google it, but apart from anything else I'...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Andrew, I can so relate to your problems, I run quite a few radio controlled boats and it wouldn't be the first time I have arrived at the lake to realise I have packed the wrong transmitter or wrong battery pack. Those rather large Regner pressure gauges do seem to have sticking problems if not re...

Re: The (Windmill Hill) Welsh Highland Railway

Good evening! As I've mentioned before, passenger services on the (WH)WHR don't generally run during the winter. It feels like an occasion that should be marked, so this afternoon I headed out into the garden with two aims in mind - to operate the last passenger train of the year, and to run my newl...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Glad you like the wagons chaps, thanks. Good ideas re the planks Grant, I may try that next time, thank you. Attacking the paintwork with sandpaper to create a worn/faded/peeling look does highlight the different planks to an extent, but I don't want everything to look quite that knackered! With the...

Re: NEW FWLR LINE

Hello Rod, Glad to hear you're on the mend - Anne's a miracle worker! Sorry that the old railway's had to go, but I guess the modular construction means that you (well, your son-in-law!) should be able to re-erect it without too much trouble? The new garden looks like it has a lot of potential - law...

Re: Kerr Stuart diesel

Looks like one of the batch built by Dave Holroyd. If so, there is a review and photos in the Jan. 2017 issue of Garden Rail showing the innards. It's a nice model. Certainly sets the bar quite high....... Ah yes, that's the name! I had a chat with the owner of the one in the photo, who showed me t...
