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

Motorlessness

Not much to report on the modelling front. Been too busy with work and house. 

However I did pair the Saint with a tender from my Collett Goods just to see what it looked like. The tender is a 3000 gal so is a tad too small but it sets the scene. 


The combination of lined loco and unlined tender is historically accurate – it’s what happens when some of your locos are lined and some aren’t and you need to do a last minute tender swap. 

Although the result looks acceptable an unpowered Hornby loco attached to an unpowered Mainline tender won’t get very far….

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.
