Gem L&Y Aspinall 0-60ST
« on: March 20, 2018, 01:41:34 pm »
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Could anybody help me find the instruction sheets for the above kit ?
Have been in touch with the last owners of GEM models, but they retired 5 years ago.
 
Many Thanks

Hello!

I built this loco many years ago, but I'm not sure I still have the instructions. I don't have the time to rummage tonight but I will try and have a look for it tomorrow.

Cheers,

Chris

Yes, the body is simple to build, but from what I remember the chassis mods require quite a lot of work.

Cheers,

Chris

interesting... cos I have    the kit in my  'to  do' box......

I wanted  a loco with 'see through' spoked  wheels and  am considering  using   a  Jinty chassis or   a  Dapol pannier...

I used the recommended (at the time) Poole Farish 0-6-0 chassis. How much work would be required on a more modern chassis I couldn't say.

To go back to the original post, I've had a good look, including some archaeology in the loft, but I can't find the original instructions - sorry! If you intend using the Poole Farish chassis, I could take the body off mine and photograph the chassis if that might help a bit.

Good luck!

Cheers,

Chris

Excellent result!

I was still a relative novice when I built mine. If I'd known it was rated 'difficult' I might never have attempted it, so my advice would be to give it a go. This is what mine looks like:



As you can see, the body doesn't sit right on the chassis. I will try and do something about it one day...

Good luck,

Chris
