Forum therapy at work :lol:  It certainly made me feel better by writing down - hopefully in a light hearted way - the details of my frustrating afternoon and I'm glad it helped your morale.  As other members have noted - days like that happen to nearly all of us.

Work on the layout has been distracted by a number of new arrivals - as my layout is emotionally based somewhere in the west country it was appropriate that the long awaited Class 22 was photographed making a return.
On order since 2009 the Dapol model ( minus headcodes) was given its first run on the layout this week and will replace the aging Hornby Class 21/29s ( with bachmann class 25 chassis) that have been pretending to be class 22s for the past 5 years.




The model even has the spoked wheels although they can't be seen in the photos.

BR baby Deltic D5900 arrived on shed today.   First impression is a very nice model.

I see Heljan have done away with giving you a choice of headboard numbers. The  model comes with all the buffer detailing already fitted -  this has a up and downside - on the positive side it means I don't loss parts ( and my patience) as I spend hours with wee tiny parts trying to work out where they go and then trying to glue them in place - the negative is trying to remove them (without damaging them0  from one end to fit a working coupling.

Some people are never satisfied :lol:

Feeling chuffed with myself  after a productive day-:shock:
- put details of all my rolling stock into a spreadsheet so that I can now sort by era and run prototypical wagons behind my locos 
-  successfully fitted Kadees to an old Airfix Auto coach,  replaced the plastic wheels and put real coal in the bunker of the GWR pannier tank !  *
- finally got around to put the detailing on the City of Truro *

* got the GWR bug at present - now I wonder where I got that from?....... someone who loves panniers maybe ? :mutley

:doublethumbNice one Dave.

That GWR BUG! Has been known to lead to a chronic infection.

Many suffer from this nearly incurable virus.

Its only after many years of gentle therapy and treatment by kind hearted LMS consultants.

That they finally recover. :lol::lol:.

Enjoying your railway.

 

Derek.

So, where are the piccies?


These are of the Kadee Conversion


The Airfix coach has a Dapol type coupling.  I removed the old coupling, unclipped the housing and filed down the mounting pin and then inserted a NEM #19 Kadee which was just the right length - after positioning it was superglued in place.
 This was the end result - what do you reckon Sol ?



Runs like a charm with metal wheels replacing the original plastic ones.  I am now thinking of adding a working lamp to the front (bell) end - although it would need to be decoder driven.  ( note emphasis on thinking - I have to check out whether DCC Concepts sell a dual colour lamp - one that could change from white to red dependent on the direction in travel.)

Those that are not GWR fans can look away...

This is a photo of the City of Truro after fixing the plates and other accessories as well as finishing off the bunker with some real coal.  ( No driver unfortunately the only one I had was a Hornby one which looked a bit naff)


and for our Pannier fans the next two photos are six of my seven panniers ( one shirt button GWR missing in action)

three with real coal - three yet to be modified - possibly with a half load rather than the easier full load


and from the other direction... the locos have been acquired over many years - some have split frames and the older style Bachmann coupling others have the smaller coupling whilst the two more recently acquired have NEM sockets which now have #19 Kadee couplings fitted with a shim to keep the coupling at the correct height
