Re: A very short GWR bogie coach

At last I have found the time to finish this build. The updated and completed blog is here: https://srmg.org.uk/a-cambrian-brake/ ...but if you just want pictures: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4904/31048062797_8a96b07518_c.jpg [/url] https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4822/31048062987_e3cd558ea9_c.jpg...

Re: The Triang and Hornby 0-4-0 Loco Thread.

Hello Chops Don’t be discouraged by this reply, it’s not a criticism of your last post. Your Triang Dean Goods is, in fact, a Dean Single, a 4-2-2 tender loco of the Achilles Class. The Lord of the Isles was the only r-t-r Dean Single available for decades until Hornby briefly reintroduced it recent...

Re: Model stripping

Mr Muscle oven cleaner also works well on plastics. For metal /die-casts I use caustic soda: shocking stuff but highly effective.

A very short GWR bogie coach

Yet another Triang Clerestory conversion, this time a low-roofed 38'6" Brake Third to [almost] Dia D15. The build, now well established, will be updated regularly. Hope you like it. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a non-copyright photo of the real thing to post here. https://srmg.org...

Re: Shortest coaches?

Oddly, Hornby re-released the original short Clerestories, for a while (recentleyish), in sets with the Achilles class 4-2-2 loco Lord of The Isles. Talk about flogging a dead horse though.... That said, the liveries were quite well applied and I suppose that the loco at least ran more smoothly than...

Re: Shortest coaches?

Were later clerestory coaches longer? I might have misunderstood you Mountain, but the original Triang and later Hornby produced Clerestories were short, panelled, non-corridor coaches which matched no specific prototype and sported BR Mk1 bogies. The much later Hornby Clerestories were full length...

Re: Wandle Park

A new addition is this Hornby E2 I picked up at Uckfield show for the princely sum of £24.00. This loco will have the dubious honour of being the guinea pig for my first attempt at re-painting & re-numbering :wink:Wandle Park Layout 007.jpg These are an extremely easy repaint if SR Black is wha...

Re: Shortest coaches?

Interesting looking model. More photos?

I've nearly finished making a GWR D15 3rd. Brake, a 38'6" bogie coach. Pretty short. I'll post photos when it's complete.
