Wow Rob that is some running time.... :thumbright: :thumbright:

Your photos by the way are excellent.... :thumbright: :thumbright:

Any one of them would win this Quarters competition.... :thumbright: I love seeing the ones of your winding track, it shows me anyway, what a great line it is.

This looks interesting Rob...... :thumbright:
I love to see how locos come to being from someones own ideas or even someones else's and then interpreted with someones own different take on it.

Need to see more please mate, hurry up and get on with it...... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Only kidding... :occasion5:

Thanks Rod!

It’s sort of inspired by Tag Gorton’s latest loco, which is a coal fired DJB Emma with tender. There’s pictures and videos of said loco on DJB’s Facebook page. This will be a bit bigger though I reckon.

I also have no specific plans, I’m just sort of making it up as I go along!

I’ve never actually scratchbuilt anything more than a cab for a 009 loco, so I can’t say it’ll be a quick, or successful build :lol:

Some slight progress before I have to go to work. Only had about 30 mins to spare so it’s not much....

I’ve decided to go for a stepped running plate so that the cab sits lower.

I completely understand on the time thing Rob. This month for me is even less with grandkids minding duties... :lol: :lol:

Do my eyes deceive me Rob... 8) Are you using a cereal box for the cab.... :scratch:

Ah but the good thing about Grandkids, as the saying goes, is you can give them back! :lol:

You’re correct about the cereal box, at least for the moment. It’s just a mock up to see how things look. I’m planning on cutting some proper cab sides out this afternoon.

You are so right there Rob... :lol: :lol:

Also great idea on mocking with cereal boxes. Saves on using whatever one has for their models... :thumbright: :thumbright:
