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


Leave a comment

Well having finished my Christmas Eve jobs (emergency table out of the garage and into the conservatory to be joined with its more presentable sibling for tomorrow followed by laying of the same) I managed to get a bit more work done on the Court.

A new chimney and buffers and screw link couplings and gluing the cam boxes in place have made a big difference.

I’ve still to sand the footplate back following its fixing but it’s still quite delicate. As I’m using Sprat and Winkle couplings I’m going to run the wire for the coupling back along the underneath of the body gluing it all the way which should give the reconstructed front footplate much more rigidity and then I’ll finish the butchery.

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 and Beamish. In addition to my heavily railway themed life, I am interested in rugby, cricket, reading crime novels, falconry, and medieval re-enactments.
