The Fowler tank has the same wheelbase and wheel size as the K2, and the valvegear is closer than the V1 & K3. Only got to build the body and tender.

Re: Edgware GN, New loco's

G'Day Gents Yeah you don't see many horses in school, but there are horses for courses. :D Ex-Pat, yeah I've got something in mind for the Fowler, I started on another one a few years back, going to make it into a K2, but ended up shoving a 8f body on it and making a Stanier 2-6-0, this one will end...

Road numbers are weird over here, where I used to to live the St name was 'Golf Course Road' Numbers 2-120, the only trouble was, it was a Horse paddock, and none of the horses could write or receive mail.

Haven't forgotten my railway, here's a few new loco's.

Re: Edgware GN, New loco's

G'Day Gents Hi Ex-Pat, Good question, they don't exist, 77 & 79 would be opposite, which is the Mainline from Townsville to Mount Isa, so I can sit back and watch the Ore, Oil and Tank trains Cross right in front of me, most trains are double or triple headed, don't know what class, all Co-Co. I...

Re: Edgware GN, New loco's

G'Day Gents Hi Dad 1, I'm on the edge of a small town, bigger than Booborowie. We have running water and Power, the power to the block was cut of years ago, but I'm thinking Solar panels and Batteries might be a better way to go, as I'll only be here for half the year and it could be a few years bef...

Haven't thought of a name for it yet, it just has a number........78.

As far as expanding outside, a large shed maybe the way to go, or a large ride on railway ??????? :lol: :lol:

Re: Edgware GN, New loco's

Hi Manna Looks interesting with potentially lots of space for a layout. My only question would be, how many lethal insects, reptiles etc would currently be resident :shock: Jim G'Day Gents Haven't found a one yet, there's not as many nasties as you would imagine, there are dozens of killer animals ...

Re: Edgware GN, New loco's

G'Day Bufferstop Yes you are right, it is Cement sheeting, but as you can see it's falling off, what you see underneath is the original construction, the frame was on the outside, the inside is tongue and groove timber, there was no outside cladding, it's because Qld has a very mild temp. Tongue and...

Re: Edgware GN, New loco's

G'Day Gents Sorry for the long delay in posting, life gets in the way of modelling, I didn't get to finish any of the ongoing projects, but they are all carefully packed away. I have now travelled to North Queensland, seeking 'Heat' also looking for somewhere to live, on a more permanent basis. Well...
