Re: Clackwick Circa 1955

G'Day Gents

I lived in Southend, from 1970 to 1983, I worked at Kings Cross, but the commuting drove me nuts, in the end I rejoined the railway at Southend Central, I was lucky, one house had a huge loft, and the other had a garage, both were put to good use. :lol:

I like that Bus station, but where's 'Blakey' ??

Funny thing is I used to live in Wood Green many years ago, where the 251 bus started, and years later, I moved to Southend-on-Sea, where the bus finished.

Re: Edgware GN,

G'day Gents. Chops if you check out the post above yours it explains everything. I spent the whole afternoon doing the lining on a cab, the lining would not 'bend' so I took it off and painted the edges (on the curve) Black, then laid a single white line along the edge of the black, and I've given h...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents. Thank you for the replies, Lining is'n't overly hard ( :lol: he says) you have to be slow and methodical, I use mainly 'waterslide', cut off a bit, say a boiler band, bit longer than the boiler, dunk it in some water for a minute or so, using tweezers, lift it out and lay it in the boil...

Re: Edgware GN,

G'Day Gents Things on the B1 have advanced a tad, the paint works looks a little better and a bit of lining has slapped on :D but is coming on. The C1 has also had some lining done, I have built these loco's slightly different, with all the handrails on the C1, and without on the B1, the B1 is so mu...

Leaving the C1 alone for a while, want to catch up with the B1, lots of fiddly jobs done, including the cab roof (GN roofs are easy) she's now had a covering of paint and looks terrible, she'll look a lot better after a few more.

G'Day Ex Pat

There's the rub, I have the rods but, on the plans, it shows 40/41 mm, but I've just measured them, and the ones I have are 45 mm, but I have 'ONE' from a King Arthur, which is 40 mm, so I may have to make them, we'll see.
