Stu, I take it 6024 will be your first renumber job? It was mine, when doing the name plates there are 2 different approches you can have, No1 doesn't look so good but it easier, simply glue the brass ones on top of the printed ones, approach 2 is more risky but can look better if successful, remover the existing nameplates from the middle driving wheel splasher using very sharp scissors or a knife then glue the new plates in place holding with tweezers. if you need any further advice or help feel free to PM me anytime. good luck. :D

hi dan

you are right it will be the one i "pop" my proverbial re numbering cherry on!!, lol, then there will be 2 6024's, My BR double chimney and My Dad's 70's single chimney version ( I'm looking after it on a semi perminant basis!!) 30 odd years old and still running!!

thanks again for the advice, and you will be the first to know if I run into Problems!!, if all goes ok my GW single chimney 6029 might be re numbered as 6023, then possibly the castle as 5051 or 5080, ( then when I run the BR blue stock, steam hauled railtors can look a bit more authentic)

many thanks again

Stu

Ooooohh 5051 Drysllywn Castle would be good, double headed with 4930 Hagley Hall!!! I plan to get a second castle, and i was tempted by making it either 5051 or 5080 (especially as 5080 would go with my slowly growing Tyseley contingent) but it will have to be 4084 Aberystwyth Castle because I spent quite a few happy times there in my teen years! And no I shall not give details of such times!

Outstanding videos - a happy half an hour spent watching these, and thanks for spending the time editing to make them fit to the sounds, which must have taken a lot of planning. Nice to see visits to the Bluebell, Whimsey Hill and Wenchford as well as Hinton Parva.

Thanks for your positive feedback guys, off the back of this I might go on and make similar videos for the LMS, GWR, LNER and BR.

Time for a Wenchford update.

I have been away for a week and a bit. Just got home last night to a guilplates order, so i finally finished renumbering my A4 and put the new headboard on 34027 Taw Valley. Pictures.

yeah the 28xx is loco drive, the tender is from a 68xx (grange) and the motor and chassis are from a hornby 8F. I do have a 78xx (Manor), 7823 "Hook Norton Manor"

I have just finished a video of the recent fun run at my club, it can be watched here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3VoR1KbPgs
There are several Wenchford locomotives in the video and a couple from the Bluebell model railway, see if you can spot them. :D
