While the procrastination over how to create a Furness Railway Engine continues I've put together a new video of my LMS stock. Some new additions are some N Gauge Society and Peco Kits that I've made, some old Farish Mainline LMS Coaches which I may convert to more representative coaches in time and milk tanks.

The really noisy Crimson Black 5 is one of the oldest engines I've got but given the rough treatment its had over the years its a miracle it's still running.

It's a bit of a random selection based roughly on photos I've found on the Cumbrian Railways Association Website.

Great to see vintage Farish coaches in use.

I really like the landscaping of the exposed 180 turn at one end of the layout where you have bushy foliage on the inside of the turn and a rock face on the outside.

Best regards,


Joe

I've been watching the Coniston layout develop. Looks very impressive. I think Chis has also been taking a more historically accurate approach to his rolling stock than mine! 

Thanks Joe. The rock was made using polystyrene and painted. The hill on the inside of the curve is masking tape over a sponge painted and then grass scatter and coloured lichen added.

Always wanted more coaches when I was kid. Was always drooling over them in catalogues like the link. And now many years later I've got them!  :D

After some thinking I decided to modify an old Graham Farish Southern General Purpose Tank I have



to be close to the Furness Railway 0-6-0T linked below to haul my FR Carriages.

https://transportsofdelight.smugmug.com/RAILWAYS/LOCOMOTIVES-OF-THE-LMS-CONSTITUENT-COMPANIES/LOCOMOTIVES-OF-THE-FURNESS-RAILWAY/i-PDpgfPt

It's a model I'm unlikely to use anytime soon so a change to FR should give a new lease of life.

The first job was to file off the whistle and add the large steam regulator (?). Couldn't find a decent 3D view of it so I'm assuming it's circular/oval in shape.



The to finish off this evenings modelling added the pipe work (a bit bigger than in the photo but I couldn't work with the smaller size wire) from the regulator and added a whistle. Also found a pen lid which is about the right size of the larger dome. I'll probably struggle to get the nice bell shape with my file but it's  a better match I think than the current small one.
