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

Cut deep

1 Comment

The idea is to make the railcar look like something totally different from everything else running – the new dawn.

To do that I need to use the Burlingham Seagull buses I got.

They were dismantled in the usual way by drilling out the rivets and then emptying he insides. I may use some of the seats from the bus in the railcar – another part I’m undecided on.

The buses were then cut with a bandsaw across the middle. This isn’t the end of the cutting process but it is definitely the most dramatic!

Next stage – more cutting!!

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.
