Thanks Rik, I guessed the floor and parts of the...what do we call them on Cleminsons - not bogies presumably?

The blog post will be a good read, as ever. Look forward to that!
I've seen them referred to as 'trucks', but even that doesn't seem the most appropriate term.

Re: Southwold coach

Oh my, that really is a lovely coach! I'm looking at the photographs, and I can certainly guess some bits that were 3D printed, but I'm curious how much was "conventional" modelling and which 3D parts were printed together and which separately and then assembled... Did you take any intermediate pho...

Re: Southwold coach

Wow! That's really impressive Rik, it really captures the charm of the originals, and will look great on your line - how long before we get to see it with your Southwold tank and van? I've never thought of it before (maybe I've never looked at the originals closely enough in their original open-bal...

Re: Southwold coach

Thanks Philip.
That van looks magnificent. I've been thinking along similar lines re compensation, though mine will be a simpler arrangement initially. I might refine it if it works out ok.

Southwold coach

I've been quietly beavering away at this project for a couple of weeks but it's at last taking shape. As a long term fan of the Southwold Railway, I have always fancied modelling at least one of the Southwold's six wheeled coaches. A combination of 3D printing and more conventional modelling techniq...

Re: Gauge 1 ‘project’

That does look like an impressive start. Looking forward to seeing how it develops. If I remember rightly, Dazza has drilled oiling points into the bearings on his live steam loco build which is described on this thread. There's quite a few posts to wade through but I think you'll find it referred t...

Re: Online shopping for books

A similar UK online bookseller to Hive in that they also support local bookshops and pay UK taxes (unlike a certain global online seller!). If your favourite local independent bookshop isn't listed on Hive, then you might find it here. https://uk.bookshop.org/ Again, I have no affiliation other than...

Re: 3 D Printing 16mm models

Really helpful series of photos, Trevor. Interesting to see the various ways you've tried to get successfully printed sections.

Clever idea to use a 3D drawing of the cab to get the driver's limbs right, Philip. It reminds me of the solution to the fox, chicken and grain, rowing boat problem 🤔😏

Love that shot of the single Fairlie with the slate wagons is really great. You could enter it into the photo competition.
