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

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….

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.
