Penlowry

Chronicling the development of my 5-gauge 4mm scale model railway with a few off-topic insights thrown in for free

Penlowry no.2

Leave a comment

To finish off on this magical mystery tour of my early modelling, here is locomotive no.2 in the fleet. I’m pleased with this as it was the third loco I built (the Alco Mountaineer was the second) and gave me a chance to add the details to make a nice looking loco. Dolgoch is a little odd compared to most NG locos but that just adds to its appeal in my books (yes FR people can like the Tin Tram too…)

Just need to crack open the paint now.

Now in my fourth decade, I am a rolling stock engineer and have worked in many different locations including a 7 year spell in Sydney, Australia, where I arrived with a suitcase and left with a wife and a son. I am now based back in my home county of Yorkshire where I juggle full time work, being a Dad, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
