Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Well the weather was still cold, by our standards plus I lit the fire over in the shed, work commenced on laying the track, a couple of hours gave me a workable loco shed, the wiring may take a bit longer. At the moment there is a spare siding beside the shed, visible from passing trains...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'day Gents The J5 that featured on page one, manna Is that it on the far left at the buffer stops? I wasn't sure so I spent a most enjoyable time reading through every page again but didn't see (or managed to miss) any mention of it! - I see that on page 11 I suggested a new track plan might be ca...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'day Gents Tracks been laid, couple of days ago and had trains running over it, I need to remove some ballast to ease a kink, leading to the Goods shed all good (but it needs to warm up a bit). The J5 that featured on page one, is being rebuilt, it has the same wheelbase as a J3-J4, and not a J5, t...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents I have decided to go with the loco shed, and picking up a double slip for only $20, I'm modifying the goods yard to. Both to give access to the goods yard and a longer headshunt. The redundant track has been removed and the replacement track laid where it is needed, You get the picture. ...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Thank you Ex-Pat, I like C12's to. Now , an apology, The C12 above, is different than the one I described, 4511, is a body I built, the chassis, is from the original C12, and runs quite well after a new motor and Romford wheels. The other one is the one with a wonky body and Hornby chass...

Re: Edgware GN, J6 revisited

G'day Gents A couple of projects are on the workbench at the moment, the C12 (from a coupe of months ago) has been prodded and poked into life, it ran like a three legged pig, even after a new chassis, so I slowly worked out that the body (bought off of e-bay) was bent, by adjusting the chassis ( a ...

GN tenders did vary, some did have the divider, I think the idea was that the coal would drop into the middle slopping section, any that didn't would be shoveled down by the fireman, or it would move about by the movement of the tender.

Re: Edgware GN, J6 revisited

G'Day Gents After a bit (not a lot) of research, I've come to the conclusion that GN tenders are a minefield for the unwary, and one that I've fallen into, worked out the the tender on the J6, should actually be on the J1 (isn't that lucky) But even then, not all of them, K's made a tender for the C...

Re: Edgware GN, Back to the Atlantic.

G'day Gents Time I think for an update, times been a bit scarce, but a bit here and a bit there, and building the chassis to get it to run, that was fun, first time I've done a 'Kit' chassis, so it was two steps forward one step back, but it's now a runner, I had it running on the layout, six coache...
