Penlowry

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

Tilt is the way forwards

Further unpacking of Patriarchal boxes revealed this. 


This was the first model I ever spent serious money on. It was what I spent my birthday money on in 1996 at a swap meet. 

I even went further and started producing an intermediate trailer. Unlike many I saw, and have seen, where it is a straight cut and shut, with this one I kept the full length of the roof of the original trailer I was using. This hides the cut much better in my eyes. 


The window strip is also scratchbuilt. 


And I started scratch building some tilt bogies. 


Won’t quite fit the period of Penlowry and so is another thing to add to the “must finish one day” list! 🙄

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.
