The van is epic and, bearing in mind what you started with, you have done a fantastic job of restoring it. There are many heritage railways that would love you!

Looking at the paddock around it does make me think, " If I had some land like that there would be 5 inch gauge tracks for sure!!!"

Thanks Chris.... I did suggest that once upon a time.... but sometimes you just know when you are pushing your luck :)

Same as when I pretended with a spoof email that I had bid & won on 5 standard gauge track panels for a cool 2500 and was now looking for a small pug to go on them ..... few cold dinners that week until she saw the funny side!

An update on the Southern Railway M7 than I am hoping to re-model into something akin to Caledonian Rly 419 - seen here after leaving the preparation area



As always seems to be the case.... I didn't spot that the handrail had popped out during it's time in the Paint Shop Preparation Area!



Now just need a replacement chimney, dome and safety valve set (and the small unresolved matter of crests & transfers)

..... there was a time, more years ago than I care to remember that I was an active member of the Bo'Ness & Kinneil Railway as I was living in Bo'Ness at the time, laid many of the track sections between Bo'Ness & Kinneil - alas, when I discovered women & wine to go with the songs I was already listening too.... there was no way back!

I remember seeing such a conversion of an old Triang M7 years ago in RM. Looking forward to progress on this!  :thumbsup:

Andrew please tell me you are going to paint your 419 in Caley blue. Pretty please. The m7 is a really good likeness.

That is very kind of you Maurits... when it comes to wow factor though, you are still way out in front :D

....open day...now there is a thought... if I could bring together all the amazing modellers on this forum and get their input (return flights from Prague included, not sure the budget would stretch to Oz though, sorry Bealman!) ..... think of the layout that could be born out of that :)

Just for completeness & to make sure I don't end up with some shades of green in unexpected places, I put some primer on the underside too



I just hope there is enough tolerance in the chassis/body to allow for that paint!



(apologies for the blurry pic!)

Andrew please tell me you are going to paint your 419 in Caley blue. Pretty please. The m7 is a really good likeness.

That is what I thought, hence I thought it could be a good one to try as it will be my first attempt at this (re-livery, lining & numbering) - the inspiration coming from the fine work of Ozmandias

I was surprised by the range of opinions on what Caley blue actually is!  there is evidence for all of the following having been used by CR - Prussian Blue, Royal Blue, Sky Blue & Oxford Blue... I am going to go with the latter, as it seems to match what I remember the actual loco (as preserved at Bo'Ness) a few years back when I was last there (2008).  Oxford Blue is a lot darker than the blue the CR Fairburn I have by Bachmann is outshopped in.
