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

Hack-a-thon

1 Comment

As promised in the last post, more hacking of the bus bodies was required.

I’d always intended to get rid of the window ladder as that wasn’t part of my plans but then I realised the bodies were too tall so they have been reduced in height too. More pain for those who like die cast bus collecting!

The picture shows cunning use of a box lying around to provide a spacer.

While this picture shows the lowered bodies showing how much was cut off.

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.
