One of the annoying things about the Hornby 0-4-0 chassis is the way the connecting rods are in an open channel (the cylinders) once the body is removed. Inevitably, while juggling the body back into ...

Excellent, Bob Smile I'd be mourning the sale of my Bourbonnais (ex-Ste Emilie) if Salop Street did not have rather short fiddle yards - using a tender loco would mean one less coach or wagon in the ...

Nearly there. I've managed to add some cable-sheathing, split lengthways, to the safety valves to make them a bit more realistic. Also mended the broken cab-steps by grafting on the steps of the Nelli ...

Very much a warts-and-all shot of the new locomotive, with construction still in progress. I like the overall look, so just need to finish off the filling and fettling. More Kadees arrived this mornin ...

One of the re-geared locomotives has been away receiving some adjustments to the conversion. It was returned to its home metals over the week-end and a new body is already taking shape. This is using ...

A very enjoyable day at the Beckenham show, with many bargains bought from the junk boxes in the Club Shop for my other layouts and future projects. Shellsea's new operating cards need a little tweaki ...

A good day yesterday at the Beckenham show. As usual a collection of interesting layouts, ranging from Gauge 1 tinplate to N gauge. Sadly I ran out of space on the camera, so was unable to capture mo ...

Looking at the warning horn on your conversion, Bob, reminds me to re-fit the two horns on my diesel, before they get knocked off the work-bench and are never seen again.

Regarding the general look ...

I've recently been posting the story of a kit-bashed diesel for Puerto Paseo. At the back of my mind was something I saw a good many years ago, on a French preservation railway. As I was in the loft e ...

I was supposed to test the power feeds on the layout today, but instead spent the time re-writing the operating cards, as several of them had gone missing. I plan to attach a T-bar with a ring-binder ...

As a previous customer of this manufacturer, I have been sent notification of the firm's new online catalogue. (Google anyscalemodels.com)

That's very close, isn't it, Ian. Doesn't take a great leap of imagination to add a second bonnet and put it on a bogie chassis. Even the cab is pretty close. Thanks for posting.

The new diesel is wonderful and could well spawn a classmate operating much further south. Cool

Thanks, Bob, and why not? If it came from Fowler's (thanks, Ian, for that hint) they could turn anothe ...
