Love the work on the LNWR model. Have you decided on a name & number for it?

 

I know it is only a first prototype but I greatly admired the work you put in to the model of Derwent for Edwardian. 3D seems to be the way to go for models which have a narrow fanbase - I'm hanging out for one myself when you have time to refine the print. If you are looking for someone to do a test build I'm quite happy to buy a development model.

 

Below is a suggestion for another 3D print. The Drummond 'Bug' was released as a kit sometime in the past but was outside of my limited spending power at the time. Seeing what Edwardian did with the power bogie for his model gave me the idea that I could power the Bug in the same way with a Spud or Black Beetle fitted under the saloon part. Even though I mainly model GWR and to a lesser extent LNWR I would love to have one of these running around in LSWR green with the salmon and brown coach part.

The Webb Compound is due to become 1938 'Sultan', when I find the other nameplate! The numbers are already on.

Craftsman Clever indeed, Sem.

 

You should be particularly proud of this one.

 

I don't need one, but I find I want one!

 

One in that lovely poured silky medium that Linny's has his G6 in would look lovely with those LNWR coaches I have knocking around.  Could one find its way from Northants to CA?  Mind you, no doubt too long for the TT!

     Don't forget libraries can also undertake inter-loans between local areas and possibly regions (although East Sussex' library service is dismal, so good luck with that...). I'm due in London tomorrow for my passport interview and I'll be activating my British Library membership; I'll see if there's anything of interest to report back to you all! Ashford library used to have a vast railway section, obviously due to its connection with the Steam Works, however when the library was rebuilt in the early 2000s (don't quote me on the year!) it was decimated and the books sold to the KESR, Bluebell and surrounding model clubs.

     What remains is not necessarily not useful, but it isn't expansive, which is a shame as it's the easiest place to research, for me at least, or for me to research on behalf of other people.

REMINDER!

 

The current (out 10th May) Model Rail has part 2 of the LBSCR Terrier feature.....the locos sold on to others...

 

I have had a quick look today, and it looks interesting.

 

I am hoping to buy a copy on Wednesday from a Tesco, as last months issue from Tesco was a bundle with Steam Railway mag for £4.99.... ;)

Wow! I'm posting in my own thread...

 

I had posted this elsewhere, but here is better:

 

On a completely separate note (  :offtopic: ), does anyone have any information on this design of LSWR van and how awkward a conversion from a GWR van would be:

 

2031-5513-LSWR-Engineers-Dept.-Ballast-P

Also, did the LSWR (or LBSCR, or any other Southern constituent!) have anything that resembled this:

download.png

I appear to have acquired one... along with a Roco 0-6-0T (HOe), a K's Terrier, a PC models Toplight, a K's autocoach, an SR CCT and a Ratio GWR 4w Third.

 

Actually, are there any Southern constituent vehicles those could represent with minimal modification? Other than the terrier... that has only one thing destined for it: IEG, No.77 plates and a name beginning with 'W'!

     With regards to the GW stock, don't forget rolling stock would possibly have been placed on inter-regional workings if passenger stock, and freight stock was supposedly 'common-user'; owned by the company but could be seen in far-flung places, so you could plausibly have a GW bogie van (IIRC converted to ducket-removed newspaper vans later in their lives) popping up on the Southern. The four wheel carriage could have its windows boarded in and run with a crane as an equipment van? And the autocoach, well, I suppose you could attempt a steam railmotor, or you could build the coach as designed, copy the driving end in plasticard and use that to replace the blank end, and then you'd have a (very) basic Director's Saloon?

 

     The CCT van, I suppose if you reworked the sides and ends a little, could become a SECR 'Cavell' van? Narrow-gauge stock you can always mess around with and somehow have it turn out 'right'!

The NG loco is already finished in BR Green (Late Crest) as 32001 (The I1x that was allocated that number was withdrawn in 1948, so I have assumed that its number (and the numbers of other I1x's which were gone by 1951) were re-allocated to the fleet of locomotives which worked the network of narrow gauge lines that comprised the South Sussex Narrow Gauge Railways, having previously carried single digit numbers prefixed by 'F' which denoted the fact that the locos were allocated to Fontwell. The locos were overhauled at Brighton and when absorbed into the BR 5-digit numbering scheme they were placed in the 'Brighton' 32xxx series.

 

32001 is modelled as it appeared around 1965. It was in this year that the German-Built (pre-WW1) 0-6-0T was transferred from the South Sussex lines to the South Dorset system radiating from Lulworth, and she was allocated to 70G (NG Shed) at Weymouth. During this time the loco was overhauled at Eastleigh. She was withdrawn from service in 1971 when the South Dorset lines to the West of Lulworth were closed and operations were concentrated on the section running from Studland in the East through Swanage and Kimmeridge to a remodelled East Lulworth. The line was to be privatised at the same time as the only other remaining steam line (the Vale of Rheidol) in 1989.

 

Following her 1971 withdrawal, 32001 was stored at Weymouth on a piece of isolated NG track in the area of the Western sidings, before being purchased by an 85 year old Sir Eustace Missenden in 1972, and she was transferred to the Brockham museum. Unfortunately, Sir Eustace passed away the following year and the loco remained in a derelict state at Brockham. In 1982 32001 was moved to the museum's new site at Amberley. There the loco remained until 1985, when it was purchased by the embryonic Slindon Vale Railway Society which aimed to restore the loco to running order for use on the line between the original depot at Fontwell and the terminus junction at Nore Wood. During the restoration period D2 (Transferred from Sussex to Dorset at the same time as 32001 but remaining in service until 1983) handled services.

 

I will say more later about the other bits, but must go for now...

Don't mutilate that K15!

 

Roxey do some nice LSWR full brakes of that general ilk.  Second-hand you can find them with a thin, sort of vac-formed-like, plastic sides, roof and ends.

 

PC toplights are always worth it.  Replace the sides, if you don't like the method they use, but as a bag of component, it must be £30-50 of stuff!  I think in terms of GW conversions, of course; I don't suppose they're much good for anything Southern.

Right. The Autocoach is remaining as an autocoach (it is quite well-built) and will probably end up in BR Crimson, simply because all my Western stuff, and the layout it will run on, dates from between 1940 and 1960.

 

The toplight will get a new roof to replace the card one it currently has and will be refitted onto its bogies.

 

The K15 may stay as-is as it is relatively well-built, but if an LSWR equivalent can be found then it will be repainted.

 

The 4w third will go into full GWR livery if no LSWR/SECR/LBSCR alternative can be found.

 

The CCT will probably go into BR(S) Green to go with my BR(S) stock.

 

The spare set of Gibson Mansells may find a use under one of Linny's Stroudley's.
