Thanks Ian. That's very helpful. They are quite large, or should I say well proportioned to match 16mm scale locos. Yes, I'm tempted, especially as they are
reasonably priced.

My rake of Newqida's is complete. Well that's what I thought. After a test run and looking at the pictures I think the sides need a logo or crest, and the brake needs a lamp bracket.

Thank you Graham.

I'm pleased with them so far. They do run very well. The bogie side frames are pivoted so they have a form of compensation.

Those look great, you've achieved a really good finish... Lovely livery too.

I've vaguely considered a couple to keep available in the storage area under the house as a sort of knockabout, ready-to-run-at-short-notice passenger train, but I think they'd dwarf all the other stock I own...

All the best,

Andrew.

I think they look very handsome with or without a crest.

Just back out of hospital and catching up. Those look mighty good Ian.

Where are you running them, looks like Southport Model Engineering Club on Rotten Row.

Very nice Ian. I'm tempted by these, but I think I should build the four IP 4 wheelers I have in the cupboard instead! :thumbup:

Thank you Andrew, They are on the large size. That's a great picture and it is a remarkable similarity. I played around in photoshop with different colours and styles before settling on this. Mainly as it goes with most loco liveries.

Thank you Invicta. If they do get some sort of crest or logo it will be a while yet. I've got other projects on the go and these are good enough to run as they are at the moment.

:lol: Thank you Bazzer. I do fancy a black loco, but not with red wheels. Lol. My next loco will be green I think.

Hello Rod,

Glad to hear you're ok. Thanks for the compliment. You clearly know your railways. It is Southport Model Engineering Club. Look forward to catching up soon.

Thank you Phil. Funnily enough these got done before my two IP four wheelers, even though I got the four wheelers first. I have to tweak one of them a little as it rocks abit when test run, either because the wooden solebars have twisted or my poor workmanship.

My plan was to have two rakes of coaches. One for larger lines, which are these Newqidas, and a rake of four wheelers for small railways. The rake of four wheelers will be my next project. I will probably sell the IP coaches as they are no longer in production and I can't get any more to match them. Still considering which ones to go for. Swift Sixteen are favourites at the moment.
