Military Trains OMWB

 :hellosign:

Hi everybody,
The OMWB area seems to be a little quiet, so i thought I'd thought i'd stick the latest pictures of my Military Train up.

Enjoy...

The bodies are available from shapeways in frosted ultra detail and well worth it.

Although this is the British Railways version, he has now done a WW1/2 version now.

The wheels are the normal Graham Farish type (that I had plenty lying about), which the coupling sticks out a bit, But i'm not fussed with that.
All in all, an excellent kit and quite reasonably priced. I didn't want anything too big as my layout is quite small.

Just had a closer look at the photo, and the bogies look like Diamond Frame ones. They are available seperately from the NGS.

I agree that the NGS bogies would be far more suited for the job.

If you try to buy any diamond frame bogies from the NGS they always seem to be out of stock though.

Anyway, here are a few more pictures so far. It is all taken on a very small test track that I made because I want to make an exhibition layout set in the middle east, Something a little different.

I also had this in my spares box, I didn't quite know what to do with it as it had quite a big hole in it. But then I had an Idea, so I will fix it and incorporate it into my military train.

That J94 looks great - and the idea of a Middle Eastern military railway is definitely something different!  :thumbsup:

Oh by the way, here is that wagon so far. It now has a nice new deck and sprayed in primer.

Here it is so far, nearly finished. I just have to top up the paint in a few places and add my military load.
