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.

Having now officially reached middle age, 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, assisting the GWR 1014 County of Glamorgan project, 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.
