But Sir Nigel in which livery? I want to do something a bit different, so what do people reckon: wartime black, early BR blue or late BR brunswick green...?

Early BR Blue, definitely  :)

Cheers,
Alan

For Sir nigel I would agree with Early BR Blue. for a future A4 project, the purple livery would be interesting but it would need skirts. No it's not purple it would actually be Aqua marine blue but is known as the purple livery LOL!  :D

Regards

Tony

Nothing to do with N Gauge, I know, but I mentioned earlier that I was saving the money I made from restored loco sales for a non-N Gauge toy.

And here it is:

It sounds as good as it looks... :claphappy:

I have just found in one of many endless boxes an old farish class 5 chassis that is minus all its motion, the question if can I use this chassis for anything (I only model pre-BR LMS) or should I throw this chassis to the bin of doom?????? :doh:

Don't throw it out Paul, unless the "Bin of Doom" is a mate / ebay / your local club etc.  ;D

I'm no expert on steam so cannot advise. If you're after new connecting rods etc. then you can get all that from BR Lines. Question is, is it worth spending the money on?

Definitely not a bin contestant though (value in the motor and some other bits).

Reattaching motion to the original Farish models is not so simple - it's only attached via heat moulded central crank pin to the central drivers - if it's off the centre driver then you'd need to check the condition of the plastic crank pin that's moulded integral to the wheel - if it's lost too much when the original motion was pulled off then there's not a simple way to reattach motion as there isn't enough to re-mould or attach to.

In this case it's easier to just buy a new central driver with all motion attached. BR Lines sell these, but I'm not sure that they sell anything else in terms of separate motion components.

Failing all that it's an ideal 0-6-0 chassis for a multitude of kits, or scratchbuilding. Or cannabalise for spares.

Cheers,
Alan

Dan's right, somebody will have a use for it. Me, for a start...!! :)

There appears to be a little of the plastic left on the center drivers so I may be able to attach the side rods with the aid of my soldering iron.

Apart from that it looks like its had "improvement" treatement" from one of my brothers, who in his younger days thought destroying anything of mine was a definite improvement.

I just need to figure out what I can create with it

How about drilling a hole into the plastic stub and using a fine cut-off nail with some glue to hold the gear on? I've done this with a broken Fleischmann in the past and it's worked well.
