Chronicling the development of my Cambrian and Narrow Gauge 4mm scale model railway

Getting on with it

Leave a comment

With the glue decided, all the components are ready and assembly can start shortly.

Talking of shortly, the chassis does still need shortening but I’m awaiting a clearer view of how long it should be before I make a move on that. 

I already had some class 465 detail packs to give me the necessary shoegear from an aborted previous project. 

Buffers I shall source from the bits box or get something suitable from a Hornby detailing set. 

Couplings too will be suitably sourced.

Now rapidly approaching my fifth 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 to two rascally mini-mes, and trying to fit in railway modelling and visits to the top left hand corner of Wales. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
