I missed the ‘outside’ shots last week, as others have said the natural light brings out the best of it.

Hi Dave - your comment had me confused until I re-read what Josh said in his post "To see it out in natural daylight" (which I totally missed) - actually the layout has not yet been out of the loft :D. It is sitting in the middle of the floor under the fluorescent light and the snaps were taken on my phone, I am not sure how I managed the impression of natural daylight, I wish I could as sometimes the loft is a challenge for good photographs :)

Very smart loco, but be careful, that grass looks very dry, just watch the sparks :o we dont want any fires in the yard!
Cracking shots!

Like the loco Jim, as others have said, fits in well on the layout.

No doubt a loco crew is being prepared as we speak :wink:

Thanks everyone, yes the loco is just fresh out the box, haven't got round to even fitting the tender brake gear! It is also far, far too clean for a 1960s J36, I have plenty of photographs of the prototypes and they are all workstained, I may get round to weathering the loco sometime once I have finished all the other jobs that need doing. I happen to know that another class 25 is in Santa's sack :D

Merry Xmas to all!!

Thanks guys :D. Hope everyone had a nice Xmas.

After working the trip freight back from Allenshaw, "Haig" went on shed at St Margarets for the Xmas holiday. Some freight was running that day and another newcomer, later to be classified 25/2 but back then just another Derby Sulzer D5237 heads a Carlisle bound tank train back south.

I think the tender brake gear is far surpassed by the loco brake rodding. Do you think you'll get away with the shorter position loco to tender drawbar?

Hi Ex-Pat - yes I agree the brake rodding is superb, I fitted it last night and added the vacuum pipes, left a couple of little bits in the box as I figured that they were destined to be broken or lost, but I had some Coopercraft oil lamps so I fitted one to the left front buffer beam to designate a class 9 pick-up freight. If I was to restrict the loco to Allenshaw I think that I could get away with the closer tender drawbar, but out on the main layout I think it would be too tight.
I have been working on the parapets for the bridge as it sits on the cradle, nothing worth photographing for now, so I will wait until there is something worthwhile before doing an update.

Cheers

Jim

Just an anecdote. Before the Botany Bay branchline was redirected around Sydney Airport, the branch travelled very close to the maintenance hangars. During the dry summer months sparks/ash from the loco would set fire to the grasses beside the track. The aircraft maintenance crew would rush to the scene and extinguish the flames. To retaliate, the aircraft crew would apply grease to the rails causing no end of issue for the loco crew. This became a continual tit for tat until eventually the line was redirected around the perimeter of the airport, far away from the maintenance/engine run up areas. At one point in time (1930's) the railway line actually crossed the active runway.
