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

Buffing up

I decided the easiest way of finishing the underframe was to put a piece of plastic rod just behind where I wanted the channel to bend, soften said channel with liquid poly, and then bend into place.

I then attached another piece of I beam under the first by holding in a curved shape while letting the glue set.

Using the RT models height gauge which I use for all my stock, the central buffer/couplings were added (Narrow Planet).

I also added some pipe work to represent the braking.

With that done attention can now turn to the interior.

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.
