Who said you can't find a bargain on EvilBay?

My latest Jubilee has finally turned up, now which example should I turn her into?

Its a good job I don't collect mint boxed examples, as the girls helped open the package when it was delivered

Over the last couple of weeks I have spent a relaxing 3 or 4 evenings making up 5 NGS Loriot D kits.

Am very pleased with the way they look after painting: a bit weathering still to come.  Without a "load" they are very light and don't like going around curves or over points.  Room under the wagon is very tight for any lead ballast so I have gone for some Oxford Diecast trucks for the time being.  When I have time I think I will make up some weightly simulated machinery loads instead.

The only trouble is I am just not sure 5 are enough  :hmmm:   ;)

I stuck thin lead sheet under the chassis , or you could replace the load bed with thin lead, scored to look like The plastic

Having recently made some money from selling some general bits and pieces that I haven't used in years, I went up to the Dapol open day armed with £90 and picked up the following spares/repairs bargains.





Two Dapol Halls, the first of which, after replacing a shed traction tire, runs very well. The second is a non-runner which will need some investigations. Both of these were purchased as donor chassis for a class of LNER locomotive that I have wanted to model for a very long time and will look nothing like the donor parts by the time I've finished with them!



A Dapol valanced Mallard. This one is also a non-runner but I think I've got all the parts required to return it to running condition. This is a locomotive that I've wanted for some time but also wanted to remove the beading from the tender as Mallard never had this feature. Being unwilling to purchase a model at RRP to undertake the surgery, I'm very happy with this £30 purchase!

Overall I overspent on my budget for the day by only £5! I also picked up my complimentary wagon which has escaped the camera on this occasion.

Just back from a holiday in Cornwall, and while there visited Kernow model rail and picke up one of each of the maroon Hawksworths, and when I got home D1015 Western Champion in Golden ochre (an ebay find) was waiting to haul them.

 

at Tings I saw a set of wagons on a layout and just had to get my own set, and the arrived Just before I left for Cornwall. I am sure those of a certain age will recognise the names!



Regards,

Alex

Love the wagons, I saw the post before in them at an exhibition, thought they were custom painted by their owner, congrats on your own set, it reminds me not only of the original but also of the half man half biscuit song.

Nice, and a good price. Does it run OK? All my modern DMUs run just fine.
