Nice little box of goodies from @scalemodelscenery.co.uk , fast service and well packaged. Highly recommend them to all my model rail buddies. #modelshop #modelrailways #oogauge #modernimage #oogaugetrains #boystoys
Progress on the Dapol (Airfix) booking hall. The main structure is now complete. The larger wall sides were a bit warped; I managed to improve it somewhat but I still need more practice at that so filler was needed. In this case Milliput Superfine white earned its place.

CUPAR MODEL RAIL 2018
21st & 22nd July, 10:00 - 16:30
Corn Exchange, Cupar, Fife.

The third featured layout attending Cupar Model Rail 2018 is “Arbroath” from Dundee MRC. 
Set in the decade from 2000 - 09 for running purposes, though we have used some modelling license and kept the old mills, that used to be near the level crossing, instead of the supermarket and car park that presently occupies the area.
We have also reinstated the loop line for use by the local Perth - Arbroath service, as well as a refuge siding for permanent way trains, keeping the main line clear.
Arbroath is our first foray into DCC. We used Gaugemaster Prodigy equipment for train operation, with point control, crossing barriers and uncouplers utilizing MERG components.

CUPAR MODEL RAIL 2018
21st & 22nd July, 10:00 - 16:30
Corn Exchange, Cupar, Fife.

The second featured layout for our show is Glendevon by Edinburgh & Lothians Miniature Railway Club. 
The period is British Railways days, just before the Beeching era. The passenger and pick-up goods trains still travel their way along the line as they have done for years. While the occasional diesel might be seen there is no sign of the sweeping changes the next decade will bring.

Glendevon depicts two scenes, a halt and brewery and the terminus on a supposed ex North British Railway branch line leading off the Devon Valley Line that ran between Alloa and Kinross in Scotland. Like most of our layouts the period modelled is the 1950s and early 60s. There is a village called Glendevon in the area, at the south end of Glen Eagles, but the layout and village we have built is a fiction. The name was actually taken from a warehouse business in west Edinburgh and the story made up to fit the name. This then explains the name Carrickknowe for the halt, Carrickknowe being a district in the same part of Edinburgh.

A challenge with modelling Scottish railways in this period is that the Scottish companies are not supported by the Ready to Run manufacturers. Some of the LNER, LMS and BR Standard engines which ran in Scotland are available, as are many diesel classes, but not the pre-group steam locomotives which remained in service to the end of steam. Fortunately kits are available for many of these classes. Because of this many of the locomotives used on the layout are kit-built and some others have been converted from R-T-R models. The rolling stock is a mixture of kit and ready to run models of types that would have been found in the area.
In addition to the trains, the layout features working signals and hand-built buildings modelled on those characteristic of Fife. Control is conventional DC cab control. The signals are operated either by solenoid coils or modified miniature relays.

Here we have a Lionel #736 2-8-4 Berkshire, which was modeled after a real life Boston & Albany loco, and was a premium loco in the Lionel family. Along with the 773 Hudson, this has been considered among the nicest locos products in the pre-war era by Lionel.

I think one of my favorite features of this loco is that the front of the boiler opens up in order to access the driving light bulb. .

Oh, what could have been!

A customer recently sent us this custom made model of what is commonly known in GWR folklore as the "Cathedral" class. A huge locomotive designed by Hawksworth but never built - following WWII.

Would you have liked to have seen this loco built?

Went to visit my friends model railway yesterday - and I fell in love with this Bachmann class 47. #bachmann #class47 #britishrail #oogauge #oogaugerailway #modelrailway
The first of two projects I am working on while the Wellesley is on pause. Despite Kitmaster and Dapol being on the header, this is the 1958 Airfix tooling - in 1962 Airfix brought Kitmaster and incorporated some of their locomotives into the Airfix range before the railway tools were sold to Dapol following the takeover by Palitoy in 1981. The kit itself came in a traditional plastic bag and header; unfortunately this resulted in some of the side panels being warped. Other than that the build looks to be intuitive and straightforward and a massive saving on pre-painted booking halls from Hornby and Bachmann.

Here's some big news for you this morning! Since we revealed 66789 in May, we have received a huge amount of requests for other liveries, with one in particular being the most sought after. We now have the licence and can announce we'll also be producing 66783 "The Flying Dustman" in Biffa red with GBRf branding.

The loco caused a stir from enthusiasts earlier this year, with some revelling in its unusual livery whilst some likened the look of it to a large dustbin! Either way, it's remained a huge talking point within railway communities. We'd like to thank both @gbrailfreight and Biffa for allowing us to produce 66783.

Been meaning to put this up for a few days now. Still early stages at this point but repainted the small hill on the bottom right of the layout. Added a muddy path at the foot of the hill that leads to the shed and put static grass around the engine shed.

Next Tuesday (3rd July) marks the 80th anniversary of the incredible world speed record for steam locos set by 4468 'Mallard' in 1938.

Mallard, hauling six coaches and a dynamometer car, topped Stoke Summit at 75mph and headed downhill, momentarily reaching 126.4mph - which was enough to topple the previous record set by German DRG Class 05. The train crew admitted a speed of 130mph may have been possible had it not been for the slow junctions at Essendine.

I hate to sound like I'm repeating myself, but this is another great running loco from Bachmann! I wish it had a micro led light on the front as a directional one, but the quality and detail makes up for this. My only complaint is you can still see some markings from the molding on the stack, but other than that it looks great.
.
The Hornby coach is of nice quality as well, and I love that it does come with lights. They're a little bright, and too white from the factory, but a little yellow paint fixed that.
.
.
The diorama is taking shape as well! I still have a long way to go, such as making plaster hills, and adding static grass. I have to thank Richard of Everard Junction for all the tips and how to guides he has on his youtube channel. Seeing his layout is what got me back into the hobby, and inspired me to want to create something amazing with my own two hands.
.
.
And since the US isn't in the world cup, I might as well join in with the Brit side of my family in saying Go England!

I hate to sound like I'm repeating myself, but this is another great running loco from Bachmann! I wish it had a micro led light on the front as a directional one, but the quality and detail makes up for this. My only complaint is you can still see some markings from the molding on the stack, but other than that it looks great. . The Hornby coach is of nice quality as well, and I love that it does come with lights. They're a little bright, and too white from the factory, but a little yellow paint fixed that. . . The diorama is taking shape as well! I still have a long way to go, such as making plaster hills, and adding static grass. I have to thank Richard of Everard Junction for all the tips and how to guides he has on his youtube channel. Seeing his layout is what got me back into the hobby, and inspired me to want to create something amazing with my own two hands. . . And since the US isn't in the world cup, I might as well join in with the Brit side of my family in saying Go England! . . #Bachmann  #Hornby  #LGBtrains  #lima  #mth  #locomotive  #train  #steamengine  #modeltrain  #modelrailroad  #modelrailway  #collection  #hobby  #Ogauge  #OOgauge  #Nscale  #modeltrains  #woodlandsenics  #Lionel  #Jinty  #3F  #class3F  #LMS  #BR  #britishrail

Tenders; again.
.
To follow on from my last post, here’s a photo of two Urie bogie tenders, the one on the left is a simple re-name/number, to 741 ‘Joyous Gard’.
.
The one on the right is a rename and number to 748 ‘Vivien’. In addition to this it has been fitted with a representation of the oil burning conversion that a handful of this class received in 1946. .
After they were all converted back to coal firing they kept some oddities that distinguished them from their classmates, primarily this was the electric lighting setup, and generator on the front left footplate.
.
My version is missing the electric lighting that was fitted to the tenders, along with the ladders, (think the back of a BoB/WC/Merchant navy tender) This will be the final addition to mine when I have the. required parts. I also just want to point out how nice these tenders look on this livery. They are also such an interesting design, and probably my favourite tender design on any steam engine.
.
This also brings to the eye the couplings, I think that I need to start using 2 hooks with the Roxey couplings, as the difference between this and the Bachmann one are very apparent, with the former lacking much of the visual qualities of the latter.
.
Things are never finished!

Update:
.
I’ve been working on a few little things recently, the first was to finish off this wartime black M7, cosmetically she’s done, replacement whistle from markits, light weathering, crew. All she needs now is a new motor. I bought this pre-owned, and while it might not be the most cost effective exercise, it gives me great satisfaction to finish a project like this (well nearly).
.
I also made a start on something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now, an oil burning conversion of an N15, King Arthur. This one will be ‘748’ Vivien. The tender tank just needs a few detailing bits, then I need to add the electric lamps, generator and other cab details that came with this conversion. Certainly something different!
.
Finally, making progress with my Ex-works Schools class, while it waits for gloss varnish, I repainted the wheels in malachite. They now match the body much better, lining the edges and centre with black to finish them off, in the post-war style.
.
That’s just a quick rundown of some of the things I’ve been working on. As usual, any comments, feedback or questions definitely get In contact!

West Country on a wrong road, down 8 coach express.
.
These locomotives were oversupplied, and towards the end of southern steam could be seen working 2 or even 1 coach trains on the remnants of the withered arm.
.
The majority of the 4-6-2 ‘Air Smoothed’ BoB/WC were built at Brighton works, by the rather polarising O.V.S Bulleid - who just so happens to come from where I’m from, New Zealand.
.
This model is in 1947 guise (although only just visible at the head of the train). Malachite green, with yellow horizontal lining. It will soon progress to the workbench for a light weathering.

An as yet un-numbered N Class roars past with a down express. In the background is the also un-numbered set 46.
.
I really enjoy being able to go and run stock at the club, although the issue I'm facing more and more is that because my aim is for prototypical appearance eg: front footsteps, tender/loco gap it means I'm not usually able to run stock when im finished with it. It was nice to get this loco out for a run before it won't traverse the club layouts corners.
.
It's also nice to see express trains running at speed

SR open third, renumbered from a open second, and sprayed with Matt varnish.
.
Just like the bogie Van B, this can't be bought off the shelf in this condition. Given the usual treatment of removing the numbers, and painting all of the black parts and the wheels in a dirty black colour.
.
As far as I know these were run loose during southern railway days, would happily pick up more of these if they came up. Easy to renumber and stoked with the finished product!

This is also coincidentally my 100th post!! 🌟🌟🌟
