Not very likely that the Railway will Ever get reinstated to Hawick, unless they go 'around' the town.

Finally, the B2 is now working for a living on the layout, only 4 coaches at the moment, lets run it in first.

No, the GN Royal train, is not on my list of things to do.........yet. A train of six wheelers would be of more use.

More parts have been ordered, for Gresley's W1, and new wheels for the J7.

Still going forward with the B2, I've been working on the tender, most of the painting and lining is finished, and the tender chassis is in the vice drying.

The horseboxes, have had there bodies and chassis painted, one more coat to go on the bodies, and a bit more on the roofs.

That's a good idea, I had thought of something to block the worm off.

Re: Edgware GN, J4 now running.

G'Day Gents Thank you 'Stainsacre'. A couple more pics, Glued the motor in the B1, it did a circuit on the layout, then the other side of the valve gear fell off, it'll have to wait until the washers arrive. The Q1's motor (XO 4) has always had a few problems, keeps jumping out of gear, I've now rep...

Re: Edgware GN, A box full of fun.

G'day Gents. I did go out to the shed, and gave the J4 a run, slowly loaded her up, 28 wagons, equal to 30 ( as some were long wheelbase), even at 28, which is twice the limit for the Edgware branch, it was slowly moving even though it was slipping, All the J3's hauled about the same ( All Dublo/Wre...

Re: Edgware GN, A box full of fun.

G'Day Gents Hi Ex-Pat, Yes the old time cabs on GN loco's were very austere, no wonder they all had big 'Bushy' beards, I haven't tried out the J4 yet. Bit here and a bit there with the horse boxes, hate all the brake bits, make my eyes go funny. You've noticed the 'fixed' valvegear on the B1, the m...

J4 4084, is almost ready for traffic, a couple of steps under the cab, looking forward to see it running.

B2's axle has been replaced and is now a runner, building a chassis for the tender, a pair of horse boxes are taking shape.
