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

You shall go to the ball

Well I won’t bore you with the details of the last couple of days. Although I was the only one who had invented the deadline of showing off the disco train at Narrow Gauge East at Bressingham, and therefore was the only one working to it, I still felt that I had to deliver.

I feel that my next project I shall complete and then post it when I’m bloody well sure it will work. But anyway…

So here it is. 59 van finished, 121 finished, and the Alco has had Greenwich couplings fitted (it previously had choppers- although there is a height issue to sort) name and works plates, a suspicion of lining and the headboard fitted.

I’ve even put a suitable picture in the background to hide all the cr*p on my modelling desk.

You shall go the ball, disco, oh Barge.

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.
