Well after a nearly a year of inactivity other than constructing the card city I finally spent 30 on some unpainted Dapol Grain wagons and some transf (oops) Decals from the NGS shop.  Loco is Union Mills and the brake an old minitrix both have had a coat of grime or two. MUST get around to ballasting ....



Very nice, Jerry :thumbsup:

Latest models that I got last weekend, I have others but they are duplicates of what I have already posted, I have a very nice collection of small steam and diesel locos now, my taste has been slowly turning from LMS to GWR, I traded all of my tender locos for small locos and larger tank engines, as a kid I loved the big express engines but as I have got older I have a preference for little ones.

Keep on Smiling
Dave.

I got home today to some belated birthday gifts a Dapol 58 EWS and some mini monster box wagons out of choice I would have avoided Dapol due to nothing I've had from them has ever worked well and back up service has been non existant but as I have not paid for this I'll give it a chance and it was a very kind and well thought out gift.

I am impressed with the looks and so far running in is going well so fingers crossed

The wagons and train not sure it would have pulled these and the flats but I'm sure I'll be advised, what would the wagons have carried?

Hey, NICE gifts! Totally out of my era, but if anyone presented me with those I'd be very happy. I'd run 'em anyhow.

So far so good I have done the running in and it has been flawless not a stutter from it so it looks like a good un it is very smooth and quiet. I don't have an era just running what I like really.

Hi Dave

Loco and wagons look good I think these are used for spoil and spent ballast from engineering works on the track they are low sided so they don't get overloaded and are cut down mega box wagons.

Hope that helps

Regards

Dave

Been thinking about a small town layout which resulted in a couple of recent bargains.

First Trolley has a small bogey covering missing but other than that runs fine - US 19.87 inc PP

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Bought this lot as non runners AUD $41.68 inc PP

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

After a clean up and all the solid grease and gunk removed the 2 Brill Trolleys are now fine. Just need a new bulb in one end of the Christmas one.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Again clean up and de-grease, followed by re-oil etc means the IC runs okay (ready for Ebay)

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

Full strip on the little steamer has revealed that brushes are worn and jamming the motor. Temp repair has it running but new brushes etc on order. Will sell on when completed.

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

All in all very pleased. Now got to think about that Trolley layout !

I've received back from Douglas Stewart at Wickness (http://www.wicknessmodels.co.uk/) my Black 5 and Hall that he was converting to DCC sound. I'm well chuffed (sorry about that!) with the final result.

Douglas always posts a video of the converted loco for his customers to view before final payment which is a nice touch..

Black 5 Graham Farish Black 5 DCC Sound Conversion
Hall Dapol Hall Class DCC Sound Conversion

I've already got one of his Warship conversions, just need to decide what to send him next month!

Cheers
Nick
