Hi everyone.
My friend Colin, who I may have mentioned in other threads, has an exquisite N gauge layout, which he keeps under a bushel :)
He wanted one of the Churchward/Collett Mogul 2-6-0's, but none were available, either RTR or as a kit.






so he made a boiler:



added a body:



a few bits and pieces on a cut down prairie chassis:



 added a tender:




and after painting ended up with this:




Rather nice work I thought, and worth sharing...

ATB

Shaun.

Hi Shaun

P&D Marsh Models do a body kit in N scale. Uses a G/F Prairie chassis.

I wish I had a friend like your friend Colin Shaun ................ :roll: :roll: :roll:  I'd certainly keep him on my Christmas Card list  :cheers

I wonder if this is a practice effort before you show him the advantages of 3mm scale .................... :hmm
I think that's brilliant - in spite of it not being from a proper railway company............................................ :cool wink

Thanks Peter, I shall certainly tell him how much his work is admired!
Regarding 3mm - we've washed our hands of that scale/gauge - three layouts were quite enough :roll:!!
Moved on to 7mm Narrow, but it's not settling too well, so we are working on an extension to 'Teifi Gorge' our old favourite - still going strong and doing the local shows.
As for 'proper rail company'....

Stay well,
Shaun.

Sorry to hear you've kicked 3mm into touch Shaun - to me, it was a brilliant scale straddling the two larger scales perfectly - at least, it was in the good old days of Triang TT.  Small enough to get plenty of "miles" into a reasonably sized room and not in the same price bracket as 7mm.

If it still existed in RTR, I'd certainly have been there.

Was it the difficulty of having to make literally everything that turned it sour or simply the desire for a change ?

Hi Peter.
No, didn't turn sour - I think we just wanted to try other scales. Colin has always been an N guage fan, Pat collects and builds all gauges (even Hornby 3 rail, as well as tin-plate. Before he retired from their restaurant he had a working tin-plate layout in the dining room)
Me - I'm more interested in scenery and buildings. Our three 3mm layouts are still operational, and we keep them on permanent display in our Cardi-Bach museum.
Still lots of RTR 3mm stuff around, and our ChufferDuffer friend up in the hills has two huge 3mm layouts that we help with, so it's not dead!
You can catch us on:     https://thechufferduffers.blogspot.com/

(If you so wish... :lol:)

ATB
Shaun.

That is super modelling.... the way you describe it makes it seem so simple but we all know the skill involved.  Any chance he might show a little more of his work?

Does your mate Colin have a 3D printer? Just wondering where he gets the "white bits" on his locos from!
Cheers,John.B.
