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

Another tender story

Leave a comment

With a break in railcar modelling I knocked up this Churchward tender using bits of Hornby tenders. It is from a 28xx and may go behind my 28xx but I also need a spare one to go behind the Mallard Models Duke that the Patriarch built which currently has one of the short tenders to fit in Cornish small turntables whereas by the time the surviving Dukes had become part of the 90xx Dukedog range on the Cambrian they had the longer tenders. The model needs some real coal on it to get rid of the plastic gloss but apart from that is looking good.

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.
