Continuing with the themes, the next group are BRCW type 2 and 3 locos, mostly class 33 with a class 26 interloper. All are Heljan products. The earlier releases of class 33/0 had a roof profile that was too flat, but I took a leaf from a friend by modifying the shape of the cab roofs, thus fooling the eye a bit. The class 33/1 and 33/2 models that followed seem to have managed the correct roof profiles for each type, while Heljan eventually relented and release a new batch of class 33/0 models with corrected roof profile.

First up is plain green type 3 D6585 (later class 33/0), with later pattern modified exhaust - some sources have suggested this loco may have been built with this style of exhaust. this is one of the locos on which I modified the cab roof shape.

Next is another 33/0, this time with earlier, as-built exhaust. D6570 in green with full yellow ends has the coach stock crest, and is one of the later, corrected models from Heljan.


P_20181227_113801_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


D6520 is a 33/1 'bagpipes' example in blue with full yellow ends.


P_20181227_114136_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


D6547 is a 33/0 in blue with full yellow ends. This one has the modified cab roof profile and ended up as a complete repaint and renumber job.


P_20181227_113724_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


6591 in blue with full yellow ends and minus the 'D' prefix was one if the final batch built to the narrower Hastings line loading gauge, to become class 33/2. They were only around 8' 2" wide.


P_20181227_113635_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Now we get to the TOPS era, with class 33/1 33 117 in blue with full yellow ends.


P_20181227_114339_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Moving on to sectorisation, 33/1 33 108 is in the civil engineer's 'Dutch' livery.


P_20181227_114616_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Looking almost identical, but with considerably less power on tap, class 26/1 26 038 is in engineer's 'Dutch' livery too.


P_20181227_114701_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


And moving on to privatisation, we see the only class 33 painted into EWS livery, 33 030. This model also has the modified cab roof profile.

For my third theme, here are some steam locomotives from the Southern Railway or its predecessors, not in any particular order. a couple of these pics have been posted before in other topics.

First up is ex-SECR C class 0-6-0 as BR 31086 (a Bachmann model).


P_20181226_133154_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Next, a pair of 700 class 0-6-0s from Hornby. 30693 and 30315 head a van train through the countryside.


P_20181226_133825_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Bachmann's LBSCR H1 Atlantic 4-4-2 39, La France, heads a diverted Pullman train.


P_20181227_175301_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


In BR days we see ex-LBSC H2 Atlantic 32424 Beachy Head on a local passenger working (Bachmann).


P_20181226_132657_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


A Schools class V 4-4-0, 30924 Haileybury passes by. This is the newer Hornby model.


P_20181226_133628_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Feltham based ex-LSWR 4-8-0T heavy tank loco 30495 of class G16 passes with a transfer freight. This is a Golden Arrow Productions resin kit with a modified Hornby Stanier 2-8-0 chassis.


P_20181226_133440_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Ex-LBSC E4 0-6-2T 32500 heads a van train. This is a Bachmann model.


P_20181226_133346_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Southern Railway Bulleid Merchant Navy 4-6-2 Pacific 21C3 Royal Mail thunders by in its original, as-built form. (Hornby).


P_20181226_132950_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


In later form, and as built by British Railways, one of the last batch of Merchant Navy locomotives, 35023 Holland Afrika Line, passes on a passenger working. (Hornby).


P_20181226_132822_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


And lastly for this group, the elegant yet simple Maunsell S15 4-6-0 heavy freight locomotive, although these were actually just as much at home on passenger duties. (Hornby model).


P_20181226_133248_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


I haven't decided the next theme yet, but it could be something like class 73 electro-diesels,or western diesel-hydraulics ... maybe!

Think I might have asked this before Jeff, but how many loco do you actually have.

Yes, that includes the underground stock too, although not the units under construction.

More photos of my locomotives, this time Western Region diesel hydraulics.

In class numerical order, they are:

A class 14 'Teddy Bear' 0-6-0 in weathered green. The model was commissioned by Hatton's from Heljan. It is seen facing both ways, with short and long bonnets leading, in turn.


P_20190101_171802_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


P_20190101_171837_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Two class 22 'Baby Warships' in BR green with small yellow panels. D6356 is a Silver Fox resin body on a Bachmann class 20 chassis. I weathered this one to match D6315, which was a Kernow Model Rail Centre limited edition of the Dapol model. D6356 represents a locomotive built with the four-character headcode boxes, whereas D6315 was originally built with folding headcode discs, and modified later to the headcode boxes.


P_20190101_172013_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


P_20190101_172257_vHDR_On (1) by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Three class 35 'Hymeks': the green D7039 with small yellow panels is a Heljan model; the fictitious maroon livery on D7013 is on a double-motored pre-ringfield Triang model, detailed up a bit as a might-have-been; and the blue D7007 with small yellow panels is another Heljan model, with a few extra details (which I cannot take credit for). I will have to renumber D7007 because that particular locomotive didn't get the white window surrounds.


P_20190101_172600_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


P_20190101_172715_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


P_20190101_172847_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


A class 42 'Warship, D829 Magpie in BR maroon. I photographed it with the headcode lighting on, but it looks better with the lights off until I remember to dim them with some CV changes. This is a Bachmann model.


P_20190101_173331_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


Two class 52 'Western' diesels complete this set. D1007 Western Talisman is in maroon with small yellow panels, and is a detailed and slightly modified Heljan model, while blue D1030 Western Musketeer is another Kernow Model Rail Centre Limited Edition, with small yellow panels and professional weathering. Western Talisman only had a short life due to a major accident in 1973 that wrote her off.

You have some fleet of locos Jeff
The good news is you would have a hard job burning all the motors out

I'll try not to burn out too many of them at once, Brian!

Continuing with my records of stock I have, this time the theme is Southern Region HA (class 71) straight electrics and JA/JB (class 73) electro-diesels. 

For those unfamiliar with the Southern Region (ex-Southern Railway) system, they use a third rail electrification at nominally 750V DC (it has varied in the past and can go up to 850V DC in certain places). There were two straight electric Co-Co locos in Southern Railway days, added to in BR days with one more (BR 20001 - 3), which had 'booster' sets on board - a large flywheel which turned a generator to allow the locos to clear gaps in the third rail system at crossovers and the like. BR built a new class of Bo-Bo electrics at Doncaster (of all places!) which had one 'booster' set on board, compared to two on the earlier locos, but delivered a lot more power at the rail. These 20 locomotives became class 71 (with 10 of them being converted later to the unsuccessful electro-diesels of class 74). They were also equipped with pantographs for use at slow speed in certain yards with tramway-style overhead (safer for the men on the ground!).

These two models are both from DJ Models:

E5004 is in the earlier BR(S) green with red and white lining.

E5003 is in a later, slightly darker green with no lining but small yellow warning panels.


P_20190103_000732_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


P_20190103_000959_vHDR_On by Jeffrey Lynn, on Flickr


The electro-diesels were far more versatile, with an initial batch of six built at Eastleigh proving such a success that a second batch was ordered from English Electric to a slightly improved design. They were able to operate as straight electrics on the third rail, and operate in multiple with BR(S) EP type multiple units using the high level jumpers and air pipes. They were also able to operate at reduced power (600hp) as diesel electrics, with blue star multiple connections meaning they could operate in multiple with a good many other BR diesel classes. They were built to the Hastings line loading gauge, which meant they were able to go just about anywhere on the system. Some are still operating to this day. My collection of 12 operating locomotives cover a variety of liveries from the first early 1960s examples in green, to very recent ones with private operators. All but three are currently on Hornby chassis - one still has its original Lima chassis but with a ModelTorque motor fitted, the remaining two are Dapol's newer models. Excepting the Dapol examples, the bodies have come from Lima and Hornby, and I have several spare bodies with further liveries I can swap onto the chassis if I wish. They are shown in roughly chronological order of their liveries. Etched name plates and shields/crests are fitted where appropriate.

E6003 in BR(S) green with grey band is a Hornby RailRoad model that has only just joined the collection. The previous owner has fitted many brass extras - pipes, oval buffers, and etched footsteps (one missing). I have not, as yet, fitted the extra jumper cables that JA (later class 73/0) locos had.

E6002 is also in BR(S) green with grey band and the addition of small yellow warning panels. This was a Lima body I detailed and repainted completely. Note the extra jumper below the drivers windscreen. When new, E6001 - 3 had oval buffers, something neither Lima nor Hornby ever modelled on these.

E6007 was the first of the second batch, becoming class JB (later class 73/1). These were delivered in a very early rendition of BR blue, but with small yellow panels and grey roofs and lower bands, which looked quite attractive. This is a Dapol model, which came with electrical problems designed in and is very definitely not an accurate shade of blue. The yellow warning panel was also too pale and the wrong shape.

E6012 is another early blue example, with a far more accurate rendition of the blue and the yellow warning panel. This one is a Lima body on a Hornby chassis.

E6039 shows an intermediate BR blue livery, with grey roof and full yellow ends. Lima body on Hornby chassis.

73 142 Broadlands shows the next phase of BR blue, the Large Logo Blue (LLB), with wrap-around yellow ends, grey roof and large BR 'arrows' and numbers. This was a celebrity locomotive used for royal train duties. The body is Lima (one of the very first 73s I bought), with a Lima/ModelTorque chassis.

73 125 Stewarts Lane 1860 - 1985 shows the next phase in BRs liveries, with the 'Intercity executive' livery initially only applied to Gatwick Express services on the Southern Region. This is another Lima body on a Hornby chassis.

73 004 The Bluebell Railway shows off a Network South East one-off livery applied to only this locomotive, although 73 005 carried another variation on NSE blue. The name was later transferred to 73 133. This is a modified Lima body on a Hornby chassis.

A few 73/1 locos went into 'proper' NSE livery, with 73 129 City of Winchester being one such example. This one is a complete Hornby model.

Contemporary 73 108 went into the Engineers Department's so called 'Dutch' livery. Another complete Hornby model.

73 235 represents a variation on class 73/1, becoming class 73/2. These were originally maintained for 90 mph use on Gatwick Express duties, with the diesel engines not being maintained as these duties were purely electric in nature. The livery is South West Trains' 'Thunderbird' livery, intended as rescue locomotives for failed EMU stock. This is a purely Hornby model.

73 141 Charlotte in First GBRf colours represents the newest livery I have in this collection. this is a Dapol model with exactly the same built-in electrical issues as E6007, but at least the livery looks correct.

At some point I'll want to get a pictorial record of the various multiple units I own, so will have to do a bit more scenery on the main layout running tracks to achieve sufficient space to fit complete units in without distracting and extraneous background objects intruding, or incomplete, unpainted boards. I am working slowly towards this idea.

With a view to creating a longer photographic scene to suit multiple units with up to five cars, I started doing some dry ballasting on a section of the upper level. I haven't painted the rails, but with the right framing, I should be able to capture the trains without making the unfinished bits too obvious. This is by no means finished, but its as much as I could manage before both my back and the heat in the train room got to me (we do have air-con in our sitting room, but the train room door has to remain closed because of the two destructo-cats we have).

After a little more scenic work and some glue (still wet here), a test shot with my Bratchell kit of a class 319 EMU, 319 174. I am going to have to paint the rails for this angle as they do show up rather more than I had expected. I will continue with a little more work before I can use this properly for recording the various EMUs and DMUs, but it is promising, and does allow me to hide all the unfinished areas behind.

Did you actually bank those curves Jeff or is that an optical illusion?

Optical illusion, Brian. I had considered banking them, but that can lead to running problems if the banking is too steep an angle or the lead-in and lead-out are too sudden.

Another test shot, this time with the addition of some fencing. The fences are still being added to and are unpainted at present. I feared they may steal the auto-focus on the camera, and looking at this photo, that may well be true. I may have to resort to combining two shots with the focus manually shifted.

Anyway, this shows LT ex-Metropolitan Railway Bo-Bo electric locomotive No. 8, Sherlock Holmes, hauling the rake of five Graham Farish coaches representing Dreadnoughts.

A little more work on fences. A lick of paint, all-over grey first, then some steel colour on the railings makes it look a bit more convincing. This is actually the Ratio 423 GWR fencing but with the nylon 'wire' replaced with .020" plastic micro-rod substituted to represent steel tubing. It is a little bit of a compromise in that the tubes should go through holes in the posts, but I couldn't see me drilling all those holes on the plastic posts.

The Peco flexible field fencing on the right also had a quick and light spray over with grey primer.

No. 8, Sherlock Holmes is seen once again, followed by 5 BEL unit 3052.

After playing around with fences and a few hedges, I have returned to this setting at present. I had some lovely rough hedging that looked absolutely great in the corner of the foreground field, but it obscured the trains and the car. Since I intended this scene to be a photographic backdrop, that just didn't make the cut. I have added the row of poplars in the background, and removed the upturned tree.

Anyway, here are a couple of my London Transport EMUs, a little out of their normal environment.

First up, two photos of a 5-car train of 1938 CO/CP Stock (1 x 2-car unit, 1 x 3-car unit), as it would have appeared in the 1960s. These are all built from Harrow Model Shop/Radley white metal kits, so are very heavy, and require two Black Beetle motor bogies.

The other two photos show a mixed 5-car train of Q Stock, with cars of 1923, 1938, 1927 and 1931 stocks. These are all resin kits from a couple of different sources, but, again, have two Black Beetles in one of the 1923 DM cars powering the set.

Both trains are intended to be expanded to six cars at some time in the future.

The cars are from the TPM CarKit4 range, combining resin body shells and white metal chassis and fittings, with a few etched components as well. One is a Hillman Hunter (mark 1) and the other is a Humber Sceptre, built with optional parts in the same kit. They also had parts for a Hillman Hunter Mk 2.

A mixed selection of multiple units, of both electric and diesel types.

Continuing the London Transport ones first, the first photos are of 1920 F Stock. This is a 4-car unit still under construction but able to run. The centre cars are unglazed and the bodies are quite loose on their underframes. Once again, two Black Beetle motor bogies power this unit, and I have plans to add one more car. The kits were from Harrow Model Shop, but one of the DM cars hasa Radley resin body.

Now to the main line types. First up are ex-Southern Railway units running in the late 1960s or early '70s condition, with a 2 BIL in green with full yellow ends leading a blue 2 HAL and another HAL in green with full yellow ends.

From the same period, but much more recently built, a 4 VEP in plain BR blue with small yellow ends. This model pre-dates the Hornby units by several decades, and is, in fact, four Lima restaurant cars with MJT brass sides and white metal driving ends.

Moving on to the mid- to late 1980s, a class 455/8 unit passes in Network South East livery. This was built from a Bratchell Models kit and motorised with a Replica Railways chassis.

Also from the same period is a Network South East class 456, built from a Bratchell kit, but unmotorised (it works with the class 455 normally).

And finally, moving into the privatisation era, a visitor to the Southern metals in the form of four class 153 single-car units. Only the black one has not had its livery modified,with the blue and pink units having Electra Railway Graphics vinyl overlays, and the Regional Railways one having been second-hand with some poorly painted additions in some areas, so it had some livery touch-ups and fixes.

I assume you have a cassette system for all those multiple unit rakes Jeff.

Is your 5 Bell the Wrenn version ?

Hi Brian. No, I have to reform the units every time I use them. A bit of a pain doing the photos because I was changing trains constantly, but normally they stay on the layout for a reasonable length of time.

The 5 BEL in the photo is the newer Hornby version, but I do still have a Wrenn one.

Moving on, some more of my London Transport/London Underground Limited multiple units.

The first two photos show a pristine EFE 4-car set of 1938 stock in original livery with cream window pillars. This set is, as yet, unmotorised.

Next, another EFE 1938 set, but one I have tinkered with the livery - no cream window pillars as in their later days, representing the 1960s - and with a Black Beetle motor bogie fitted. The Black Beetle struggles with the four cars (including itself), but I have some MetroModels pin-point bogies to fit, which should reduce the considerable drag created by the existing bogies.

I also have a 4-car silver set of tube stock (1959/62 stock) from EFE, which does have a motorised chassis fitted but this still needs work and doesn't sit correctly on the track. I have taken photos of it as a 3-car set with no motor.

Bringing us right up to date is a 6-car set of S Stock from the London Transport Museum/Bachmann. The interior lights are wired directly to the wheel pickups so remain permanently on as long as there is track power. I forgot to turn on the headlights for the photos.
