Doveston Works


Time for a update

Posted by trainfan , 25 December 2012 - * * * - - · 191 views

Well, since its been a while since the last update, maybe its time to bring things to update.Since the last post, the 009 layout mentioned has now become 'Blaecwm'. I would take a photo of it in its semi finished state but as its buryied under a lot of other stuff, that'll have to wait. Also, Doveston and the other OO station layout have both been scrappe...


Time for a change

Posted by trainfan , 24 January 2011 - - - - - - · 89 views

Evening all,

Since I started work on the other Terminus, a number of factors started to affect what I modelled. Including, the succussful completion of the Lyd project on the Ffestiniog Railway......

Ever since then, my belief love affair with the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways has dramatically been resumed with the start of a 009 layout on a...

Evening all,

Not been able to do alot as I'm getting ready for a new year at College. But, I've finalised on the track layout and it fits everything I wanted from it. Here's some pictures including my new N15 Maunsell N15 4-6-0 No. 736...

Not a lot has changed since my last update but a few things have happened.

Firstly, a few stock...


Its been a while - Backlog of work to do

Posted by trainfan , 27 June 2010 - - - - - - · 104 views

Evening all,

Its been a while. So a update for mainly my OO layout because my O gauge has had nothing done to it lately due to lack of time to make the backscene and get my hands on some mounts for it. Hopefully one that will be done by the end of the summer holidays.

Overhaul - J94/Torrington, New Arrival - T9/Gresley Buffet

Posted by trainfan , 07 April 2010 - - - - - - · 123 views

Evening all,

While I still debate weather to rename Torrington and pondering about something that will follow in another post, I've been out and about the place purchasing various bits and pieces for the layout. After about 7? ish years of waiting, I've finally brought my First Hornby teak Coach, a Carmine and Cream Buffet while on holiday and...

Morning all,

After looking long and hard at my 3 Bullieds side by side, 2 Blackmoor Vales and a Torrington, I've decided to renumber/name 1 possibly 2 of them into other machines. One of the Blackmoor Vales will become 21C119 'Bideford' and my Torrington might become 34066 'Spitfire'. Originally, I was only going to rename one of my...

While the O Gauge scenery was drying and the 2251 was cooling after soldering work to the pickups, I got on with updating the headcodes on my engines. On the southern, there is a very different system where the headcode doesn't mean what type of train it is, but where it is going. For my line, and to pay my own little tribute to my Favourate...

Evening all,

The main purpose of today was to do some more work on the main scenery of the O Gauge Shelf. Got a fair bit done as you may be able to see with only the backscene left to do and painting the stock before Its relatively ready until I can afford to get a engine anyway...


Overhaul - Bachmann Collet 2251 and Post DCC Conversion Photos

Posted by trainfan , 06 March 2010 - - - - - - · 303 views
GWR, Bachmann, 2251

Did a fair bit of work today on both my O gauge and OO (documented later) with some surprising results:

One of the jobs I got done was the Mechcanical Overhaul of my Bachmann 2251 Tender Engine. Its nearly 10 years old and about 3 years ago started to run roughly and basically stopped working a year later. Today, I stripped it all down to see what...
