Palbrick No.2 , Yes I know I have not put the brake lever on yet. I think I was too eager to see what the camera saw.



I have heard it said that your first scratch built wagon should be some thing simple. I think I missed that one?




Just a little more to do then some light waethering...Me thinks






The last one is just one for the album or is it just to show off my Longmoor Railway loco's?



Transfers Added



Well the transfers are a bit fiddly to say the least. They look better at a distance on the layout.

Thank you for your comments, When I was stationed at Tidworth in the early 1070's I used to transport stores and equipment to and from longmoor 3-4 days a week using a 6 wheel 10 tonner with a decommissioned Cat D2 as ballast pulling a low loader or Tasker Tilt Tailer...69 feet long in total and no powered steering. As for modelling Longmoor, It was huge.

In 1966 I was stationed at Long Marston, Stratford Upon Avon another stores depot but nowhere near as big as Longmoor....But Oh Boy! what happy days they were. I will never forget the village names like 'Upper Quinton' and Lower Clopton' They don't make village names like that any more.....I mean 'Milton Keynes' "It just don't sound right at all?"

The Bachmann model! if it ever materializes will be about £12-15

My twins only cost well under £10 plus the self satisfaction of actually doing them..

Hi Alan,small world,we used to live in Shipston on Stour a few miles from Long Marston and go to the car boot every Sunday.Another similarity is that i was a Plant mechanic and remember the cat D2,memory not so good now but i think that used to be called a "Drot". Regards upper and lower quinton there is still mystery there regarding the "pitchfork murders" in the 30s i think.

Apologies and back to your thread.

Alan,  Bachmann haven't actually said that a Palbrick is to be produced. I was merely alluding to the fact that as soon as you have put the finishing touches to any scratchbuilt or kit-built model, some manufacturer will produce a ready-to-run version.

Your models are excellent. :thumbs  Would you explain a bit more about how you made them?  Whose axleguards and wheels did you use?

Terry
