I'll also agree, great looking railway, I've watched evolve from bare boards, but to modern for my taste's. Congratulations.

Well that's bigger than I thought (I knew it was big), but a great looking building, it's going to look good with a couple of loco's parked beside it. :D :D

Hi Ex-Pat, It was a monthly magazine, that came with a 'Free' plastic locomotive, the D11 was a copy of the Bachmann loco, they made many different loco's, in Oz they cost $20, so a cheap way of getting parts..

Thank you gleancarn, won't look so white, when the paint comes out.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents With the J1, coming to fruition, it's time to start looking for another loco to build, back to the GCR this time a B2 (or a Sir Sam Fay ) 4-6-0, I remembered that K's made one that fitted a B12, but when I check the wheel spacing's, they were miles out, so I had a look at other RTR loco'...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents

You are correct again Ex-Pat, I did want to get an identity on the J1, as the body is almost complete and I'll put it to one side while I work on the chassis, the steps will be the last bits fitted.

I've started on the chassis, pick ups are next.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents

I've been on handrails for the last couple of days, not a favorite job, tedious, but necessary, as I think it finishes a loco, two loco's have been in the spotlight, The E1, which has been waiting a couple of years, and the J1.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Spent some time in the shed, thought I'd have a go at making paving slabs for a wagon load, I have a packet of 'Evergreen' sidewalk paving slabs, so I cut a couple of strips, then broke them down in 1x4 , which fit across the wagon, then I stuck them together at an angle, (see pic) a coa...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents. Thanks for that, very interesting glencairn, going to read that again. Ex-Pat, no major manufacturing of anything in the early 30's, nearly all houses being built, factories came later 1940's. One of the main 'exports' in later life was Washing machines and Fridges. There was a Army dep...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Hi, Ex-Pat. In the early 1920's Edgware was very rural, just fields and hedgerows, but because of the shortage of housing in 'inner' London and with the opening of the Tube lines in 1929, things changed big time, paving slabs were used on every footpath in every street, No tar/bitumen fo...
