Who says you cannot move your layout geographically every now and then to run things you like?

Yes very nice. After all these years I've decided I'd like to go mainly SR, but it's it would mean selling some of my loco's and rolling stock and not so easy to sell things model railway related over here for a sensible price.

Southern stock seems to be arriving fast at present.  And today's new arrival is...

Ex-LSWR Adams' 02.




Made by Bachmann under the EFE Rail label.  And what a beauty she is.  Runs nicely but will receive the recommended running-in period of 30 mins each way to bed in the gears.

I absolutely love those panelled coaches Terry - even if they are green !  They really do suggest a solid, coach built vehicle.  I wonder - how do they run ?

I do also like the Adams and would love one on my layout - unfortunately, they really are foreigners to my region.  It's good to hear she runs well - one hears too often that brand new models have running problems.

Hello Peter.  The coaches, ex-LSWR Gate Stock, are free running, due I think to the metal wheels and pin-point axle bearings which does appear to be the norm now with Bachmann and Hornby coaches.  The added bonus is that they fit comfortably in the loco run-round loop.

The detail on the loco is superb.  I have never seen so many 'bits' attached to the outside of a model tank loco.  An interesting feature, although it won't be used in my case, is the removable smokebox door to enable a DCC decoder to be fitted.

A couple of photos of the O2 working the branch.

Both great photos Terry but for me, the top one with those coaches and the bridge conveys the most atmosphere - even without people !!  :thumbs

Very nice.

I'm eagerly awaiting my 02 to arrive. I've taken the plunge and have started selling stuff to go Southern, LSWR and LBSCR.

Thanks Peter - I agree, that's my favourite photo too.  There are still lots of details to add to the yard end of the layout, but presently I am working on adding more rolling stock.  I am also toying with the idea of an industrial themed micro-layout to make use of an excess of wood I have lying around the shed.  I appear to have amassed about forty tank wagons in various liveries so am leaning towards some kind of oil refinery thing.  Details are very sketchy at present.

Thanks Pete - You haven't said which Group/Region you are currently modelling.  Wouldn't it be possible to keep some of your existing stock and run them together?  Some railways had running rights over the track of their rivals.

Hi Terry

This really is a lovely little layout - setting a standard that many of us would do well to aspire to

Thank you Barry, very kind of you to say so but I am just an average modeller.  I note that the words 'for the average modeller' are no longer printed on the front cover of the Railway Modeller magazine these days.

Hello Dave.  Yes, the loco and coaches look beautiful.  My only input was to open the box!

I've decided it'll be a freelance Southern theme. So Southern, LSWR, SE&CR and anything else down souf. :-)
I'll keep a 9F and a couple of others, but I really do need to sell stuff to finance it.

Hi Terry.    I sent for the long awaited LSWR Road Van, but I don’t know if it has been sent yet. Just after ordering the Van I had trouble getting out of my bed.?.  Which meant an overnight stay in my local hospital. I have emailed KERNOW to find out details of delivery or not, this is the morning out of hospital and I am still shaky. Could you please advise me on which carrier KERNOW used for your delivery ? Good luck with the Railway project wether or not there will be any public events this year. Best wishes Kev

Hello Kevin.  I'm glad to hear that you are home again.  I think that my Road Van was sent via Royal Mail.  Hopefully you will get a reply soon from Kernow.

Best wishes,


Terry

Hi Terry. Thank you for your reply. Re the LSWR. Road Van, I have missed something here, there are two different vans here and I have a selection of the Queen (this is where I get it wrong) from bachmann and (the single van SB003A LSWR 10 ton goods brake van) with the glazed Windows. Unfortunately or not, I have made my bed as far as automatic couplers are concerned, and that choice was Kadee, Part two, some wagons I do like your selection, but I would never get round to build kits, but, I can make do with RTR  wagons. Best wishes Kevin

Hi Terry.   The Brake Van arrived okay from Hattons after all, I was in hospital, but there wasn’t a card left, and when I was discharged my neighbour was away, hence the delay. But now I have got a choice. But, do I really need a spare “S R”  brake when I have  van. Best wishes Kevin Christie

Hi Terry.  I’m sorry to rake over/ dig up this subject again. But.. I have made my bed , I chose the non prototype Kadee but it suitable for Inglenook Junction (until I find a suitable alternative). But, now I have come to the former LSWR Brakevan. Without the said item in front of me I didn’t know that it didn’t have NEM pockets,  I have already fitted a wagon with alternate couplers ie NEM/Kadee as a???   Sorry I have forgotten,     Best wishes Kevin
