The "Cilgerran" loco is beautiful. 
Great attention to detail on the sawmill.
How have you made the turntables? I need one for NE.

cheers
Marty

Thanks for the praise Marty.
If you need a turntable, we have a spare one, N Gauge, which you are quite welcome to - just the cost of postage - which I'll find out for you.
pm me if you would like it. Pics below:







we use a manual rod and gearing to turn them.


 


Hope this helps

Shaun.

Marty, Just did a quick check - £5.50 postage to Oz.

Shaun.

Now there's very kind of you indeed.

Not looking a gift horse in the mouth but can you tell me the length over rails, I've got mainline locos that I'd like to turn you see...

I've just measured a BR standard class 5 and about 120mm?

Marty

Tough luck, Marty - max length is 90mm!

Sorry,
Shaun.

Many Thanks for the offer, just a wee bit too short. It's given me some ideas though and I like the manual crank to turn it.

Can't you modify (lengthen) the rail bed?

I think it would be easier to make a new one Phil - it's only a plastic top of a food container, few bits of N gauge rail and some plasticard.
(Only... he says glibly...)

I would think, get rid of the rails fix another sheet across the top, this time longer, then add the rails?

The rails are inset into plasticard on each side and down the middle, and soldered to two phosphor-bronze strips underneath that make contact with the circular rail running around the circumference of the table (with two gaps to separate polarity) It really would be more simple to make another...!

... And I'll enjoy the building process too.

Thanks for the thoughts Phil but I'm happy to give a scratch build a go.

How do you get the curve on the pick up rail? Just bend it around a suitable cylinder?

Marty

Way to go Martin. I'm seeing Colin in a day or two and I'll ask him for any hints and tips - he's built six of these little tinkers so far...

Late update on the Teifi Gorge, as I've been busy trying to get Login finished for Pete.

The directors of the TGR felt that the manual 5 ton crane at Forest Quarry wasn't really up to the job, so they decided to replace it. The St Dogmaels saw-mill made an offer to purchase it, and it was duly moved down to the mill.
The Company commissioned the Herrington Light Mechanical Manufacturing Company (AKA Colin) to build a 10 ton steam operated crane to take the place of the old manual one.
This appeared from the works last week and duly installed at the Quarry:










Later in the day three locos from the Cilgerran yard appeared at the Quarry to assist in operations:

(I had to grab the images from Photobucket, as like others, I seem unable to insert images from the gallery)

Hi all.

Seven exihibits of the Teifi Gorge this year. We have 'make up/break down' honed to a fine art now - 20 minutes tops! not including getting it in and out of the various venues...

Last one was at the Hermon Modeling Show:




It's now packed away for the rest of the year - not that there is much left of the year...

I bought a Kato chassis from Japan - £13 including P & P... couldn't resist it at that price. It was duly passed on to the Herrington Light Industries, and this is his take on a Glyn Valley Tram loco:

Chassis first




(And it came complete with Peco type couplings)


This is what Colin has come up with, still work-in-progress, you understand:



Thats about it for the Teifi Gorge.
Next project is Crymmych Arms, part of the Cardi-Bach collection - I'll start a fresh thread on that one.

ATB
Shaun.

I can't believe it has been eighteen months or more since I last posted on this thread - mind you, I think Crymych Arms and Dyffryn y tyllau intervened.

As a refresher, this was Teifi Gorge a few months ago:




Since that picture was taken, Pat was commissioned to build Cilgerran castle to go on the hill in the middle. This he duly did using cardboard rolls, stone paper and various scatter material:





Colin built two signal boxes, (with interiors) based on the box at Corris. (This is Colin's, not Corris):





And here is the box in place at St Dogmaels (during quite a busy day and a sunny one as well, which is bit of a rarity) picture taken from the masthead of the Calon Lan:




There is a bit more to add, but I'll leave it for now, and come back with another posting in a short while.

Shaun.

Moving on a week or two, the shed area at Cilgerran was needing loco servicing points, so I built a water tower:




There is a ladder for access, but it doesn't show up too well.

After water, I figured coal would be needed, so a coal staithe or whatever it's called was made from coffee stirrers and crushed coal and stuck in place with a suitable operative added:





The same sort of thing was added to St Dogmaels, though as yet no watering facility:





The scene at the back of Cilgerran has been a bit bare, and bugging me for a while, so I have started to infill with low profile buildings.
So far a row of cottages (well, two and a bit) and a merchants warehouse have been placed behind the water tower area - if you compare the picture below with the couple above, you will see what I'm endeavouring to achieve:





I think thats about it to date.

Happy to answer questions,
Shaun.
