  • Look what I just built!

    It's an 0-6-0 tank loco that would have worked around Belfast docks in the 1940s. One of the guys down at the club gave me an old Hornby chassis with its motor and another guy gave me an old LMS loco body that was surplus to requirements. I managed to get them together and gave the result a coat of paint; further painting, detailing and weathering will come later. I think it's not bad for something that cost nothing:

                    I could try and fit a DCC sound module in it but there's not much space. I had to cut away all the nice backhead detail to fit the slightly huge motor. Converting it to digital would cost about

                      I cleaned out my spare bedroom and put a work table in there so I can get back into models this winter.

                      I have the Thames barge to finish and a airfix cutty sark to start.

                        My Pops brother used to be big into model trains. He had a really nice setup on a ping pong table in the basement that we used to play with when I was a kid.

                              I have a huge H.O. slot car setup that I don't have room to put up. Might be fun when the grandsons get older.
