Re: PFLR No.5 - A DJB coal fired build

Jason - yes I will have to, I'm sure you'll be hosting a steamup at some point soon! I've never really run coal-fired before so it could get quite interesting... :lol:

Re: PFLR No.5 - A DJB coal fired build

Nice work, that boiler looks good. Hope you don't have to clean that tray and sneak it back into the kitchen!!!

Luckily not! Although I think a bit of wire-wool and elbow grease would do the job...not! ;)

Re: PFLR No.5 - A DJB coal fired build

G'day everyone...   I've been working slowly through this kit for a number of reasons, the main one being that I did not want to rush, the other being that I simply had to fit it in around other things. The past two months progress has been with the chassis and working parts, as you can see below:  ...

Re: PFLR No.5 - A DJB coal fired build

These are very well engineered models from watching Paul build them on FB. Looking forward to the completed engine! So am I - the build quality is great, cosmetic detail is fantastic, if I get it right it should look cracking! :) Enjoying the build already! Indeed I am, couldn't resist really - had...

PFLR No.5 - A DJB coal fired build

Good Evening Everyone, After a long hiatus from garden railways, things have just been given a kickstart in the way of a loco kit I ordered about 12 months ago. DJB announced their coal fired saddle tank kit back at the Peterborough show in 2016 and I thought it was a lovely little engine - I'd alwa...

Bl**dy good! To be honest, it runs sweeter and easier than my Roundhouse Classic Stanley, and if the gas and regulator are set right it will easily do 45 mins running if not more, compared to the 25-30 I get from the classic loco. I added a pressure gauge which mean I can get going a bit quicker, sa...

No prices or orders until the 16mm Assoc. show. Saving up the pennies but would it be better to order direct from Roundhouse or wait for the traders to advertise that they have stock?. Depends entirely up to you which you'd rather do, (I'm sorry, here comes a shameless plug) here Derails we offer f...

Unfortunately no secrets, they keep their cards close to their chest even for us traders!

I'm going to go outlandish here, but I'd love a verticle boilered loco, as per their very early Victoria model...I wonder if they'd ever do that...
