So.....quick clockwork locos
WINKSTEAD HALL meant to be the BR nationalised version of Bessie from Chigley...but is more Emett
OUTBID will be my reaction to loosing out on a clockwork loco chassis at the auction at the 16mm AGM this year
Early days yet
As it arrived from E Bay
The build starts...nice cab
Forgot to photograph before I did too much
Need to space out the tender from the loco
The judging seems to be engineering led in the past...not the point I feel for the DIPLOCK. With my last two entries I tried to take an engineering approach trying to out think the judges...success last year...failed this year. I have nearly got this years working better...more later.
Back to reality...These are fun locos. All I have to do is paint and then trim the flanges a little so they run over SM32 track which has a lower profile rail than the old stuff I have in the garden...then build a fun layout for them to run on....The Lurid Secret Railway is the title...just need a plan
Just to complicate things I have bought for pennies, another two chassis to build Bessie and Ivor
Dreams of a REAL railway...
Time flys by when I'm the driver of a train
My own corner of Wales...no not the wife, but it does look like the Mother in Law providing the fire
Simple card with embossed rivets and some track pins in the water tank
The whistle on top of the cab (which I attempted to also add embossed rivets)
is a map pin with a chunk cut out to be a whistle.
Just need to add detail to the smoke box door and a crew, lick of paint and couplings sorted out
between to loco and tender (which needs coal)....and there we are done ...ish!!!!
It runs well on the old deeper corse O scale track but bounces on the modern Peco SM32 track, so need to
trim the flanges a little.
Pictures to follow as system would not allow me to attach at the moment
You will have to scroll down to see the later pictures on page1
You will also see some fantastic models by Peter Butler
Hi managed to get computer fixed...more pictures to follow
The loco needs a crew.. Has card painted body and is still a Hornby loco underneath, but has trimmed and regauged wheels so it does not strike the Peco SM32 chairs
The Coach is a Thorntons tinpainted with card body parts. Just needs balacing and some weight, then will run ok.
