Those are very impressive! I don't know much about the detail of SR carriages, but those look spot on. I like 'em all, but especially the vans, which are so distinctively Southern...

All the best,

Andrew.

Day after we left lockdown mark 2 and I was at GMES running again! This time giving the newly built Ruston, Thanets and Continentals test running. Safe to say they all did very well! With the business winding down for the year, time to get some more stuff drawn up! Currently looking at a set of SR designed wagons in G1 but if there's time, I've got a load of other pre grouping to follow including the brake vans I've wanted for a while. The SECR Dance Hall, SR Queen Mary and LSWR Road van!

After a couple more coaches are built, I think that will be the personal side of the project complete annoyingly. While its great that the commercial side of me is now viewing Gauge one differently, still good to have gotten the personal stuff out the way before it goes full commercial. But that said, 3 coaches left before I've got enough personal stock to keep me busy plus a load of GWR wagons in time isn't a bad way to transition from Personal to Commercial. Just annoying that the 3 coaches need to be a different loading gauge to the rest of the coaches that will come with them so they match the existing coaches! Ah well.....

Just need to crack on with other bits now! At least I've got some time to do it now.......

Looking good! If you haven’t got enough projects on the go, I’ll be looking for something to run behind the 4f when it’s eventually finished...

Latest Projects

With the personal side slowly coming to a end, the number of newer models is steadily falling. Doesn't mean a number of firsts can't be done though!

Image
The 3rd 100 seater is now done and this one is in BR Crimson to match the pushpull set.

Image
As a number of them were pushpull fitted, it makes sense to have a longer set! Also means I can run them as a longer train at GMES!

Image
Goods stock hasn't been left behind either.

Image
I now have 4 more brake vans including the Dance Hall and Queen Mary Brake Vans.

Image
Plus a because I could model, a Dover Ferry Wagon!

Image
Lots more wagons are now done including examples of both the SECR and SR Maunsell Goods Vans plus extra opens.

Image
While I don't own a GWR engine (yet), I now have a small GWR set to run with one! Again another of the wants now crossed off the list.

New additions wise, Maunsell Coaches, LBSCR Billington, LSWR Cross Country and then that's the list mostly done! Well, except some Bullieds...... And more Maunsells...... and Mark 1s....... In fact, the more I think about it the more the list grows!

Wow that's some rolling stock you have there. I really do like the Dover Ferry wagon very much. :thumbright: :thumbright:
In fact I like all of your stock... :salute:

Life is so easy when I run my trains. :thumbright:

Speaking of more models off the personal list, the first set of Maunsell Coaches have finally been completed. 4 Restriction 0 coaches covering all 4 versions. Next plan corridor wise will be some Restriction 1 coaches once I've done the remaining Compartment Coaches and a Hastings Unit (now that will be something to see). Naturally everything is storage dependant. I only have 2 slots spare of storage for longer vehicles and both of those at the moment are down for the 33/0 and 33/2 (first of which won't be long).

Image
The 4 Coaches together.

Image
The four coaches with the very engine they're designed to run with. And looking great. Really making me want to build some more maunsells now.......

Image
While technically a request, I've also built a Scenery Van which is something different. I wasn't originally planning one but seeing as the Bluebell have one, makes sense (my Gauge 1 plans follow the Bluebell to a extent).

Next stock wise, LSWR and LBSCR Compartment coaches and then if space allows, some Restriction 1s........
