Re: Pedanticmongrel's New O Gauge Layout

Update,

just got a new locomotive, atm she doesn't like the curves on my layout but at the price she was I couldn't say no!

I finished painting the first brass wagon I have painted myself;

Image
Image

I collected a wagon I've had built for me by someone else (not Tom92240) and added a load to it
Image

and I have had a go at weathering

I'm back and now I model in 'Strain your eyes gauge'...

And from my side, a GW Horsebox is nearly finished, a further GW Hi-bar and another Felixpole are awaiting painting.

Next on the list: Finish the 6 wheeled and small Toad(s) and start the Slaters BR Standard Brake!

She will go back to the guy who built her and he will do some adjustments to allow more side to side play of the driving wheels at some point soon, no name has been confirmed yet.

You've made a very neat job of the tank wagon - did you use an etch primer?
Like the new loco too.

Just spray grey primer, I'm not aware of etch primers.

I've done some wiring, all the track is now wired and working, just got to wire the point frogs to microswitches, I've also done some track laying and some painting, plus had a play with the shed lights, but my camera isn't great at showing it.

my railway doesn't need any ash pits because all the locomotives have been secretly fitted with self cleaning smokeboxes :P

the open wagon with slate in it, (3rd from the left) when you inspect them close up you see that tom92240 is far superior at building wagons than me, for a start the buffers don't even spring on the one I built!

News Update:

The Horsebox is finished and in traffic, built and painted by Tom92240, then the paint job finished and lettered by me;

this is Tom's favorite bit, he is most proud of this little bit of detail!
