A new arrival from Leigh at Colletts Models, Graham Farish’s 372-211A Jinty number 47314.  Currently chasing it’s tail around the running-in track, it seems to be a very smooth example :thumbsup:

Yes, I know it’s not a natural companion to that VEA :D

Looking good Steve, I wish you would stop posting pictures of newly acquired loco’s, my credit card is starting to get nervous

Stay safe

You just enjoy flaunting all those code 55 points etc while there is a shortage owing to the Peco closure, you wicked man, you.

They're not worth anything @Newportnobby , the boxes are faded now. I thought about fitting some on the layout earlier today but then thought better of it  :o

Oh, and the plasterís out because I watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JubHV1XeX-4 and thought I should have a go at using some of the things Iíve already bought rather than buying even more new stuff :-[

Iíve bought some of Chooch Enterprisesís steel sheet piling with a view to using it for an urban riverbank.  Trouble is, now Iíve got it in front of me, Iím not sure if itís Ďright sizeí for N - itís bagged as N/HO.

Of to research piling now, isnít this hobby educational? ::)

Steve

Google Larsen steel sheet pile drawings, that should give you a good idea, the modern sections are wider than they were a few years ago.

The width of piles are generally constant, it is the depth of pan and wall thickness that varies

Hope this helps

Stay safe

My philosophy is ďIf it looks right, it is rightĒ.
Looks ok to me.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Thanks team :thumbsup:

After an evening researching piling as a future Mastermind specialist subject, I've decided that if "bollards, I'll use it as it comes" was good enough for previous waterfront modellers, it'll be good enough for me :D

Iíve been plodding through my pile of Keep Putting It Offs over the last few days, this Farish Standard 5 being one such.

Having sat on the shelf for many moons since I robbed the original decoder from it, the loco is now back in the fleet.  Iíve also swapped the small wheeled front bogie for the larger wheeled version supplied in the detail pack, so I suppose Iíd better check running all over the layout to ensure nothing catches :thumbsup:

The loco now has a Zimo MX617N decoder and two 470uf stay alive capacitors.  Thereís room for vastly more in the tender, but 940uf is more than enough for the odd bit of dirty track.  I donít need it to go down to Asda and come back with the shopping :no:
