Hi MM
What chassis are you going to use,scratch built or modified RTR?The reason I ask is that I have the same kit and I'm looking for chassis ideas.
Cheers
Tim

Mozzer what did you use to cut the chassis?

I have the Chivers L&B Manning Wardle and my stumbling block is how to trim the metal Bachmann chassis (with smoke generator).

I used a razor saw but a junior hack saw would do it as will just take your time blowing the sworfe away all the time so that it do's not get into the gears

Wrightlines used to do a milled outside framed chassis kit for this, but according to the guys on NGRM-online.com it's no longer available. Tis a shame now the kit is available again!!

Today i have been doing some work to my On30 locos by fitting brass No plates

Also i have backdated my Galloping Goose by fitting a wooden body to the back of it the body is a backmann van
it started out like this

102_3993.jpg
100_4185.jpg
100_4186.jpg


i then used the underframe from the van to build a flat wagon i used .060" x .157" microstrip to build up a frame around the underframe then used coffee stirrers for the deck i still need to paint this wagon

Well My order Of Chivers On30 wagon kits arrived today from Slimrails
I order a 20 foot Gondola & a 14 foot Caboose so i cut & shut to make a works wagon

1st i removeed 2 stakes from each side of the Gondola I then built up the under frame with one end beam from the Caboose & one from the Gondola

works wagon 1.jpg
works wagon 2.jpg


I then cut the Gondola side so there was only 3 braces instead of the 4 supplyed & cut the sides of the Caboose along a plank line so there were 36mm long

works wagon 3.jpg

i then attached the gondola sides

works wagon 4.jpg

I then built up the coboose sides with one end at the non cut end the using the chassie i cut of one plsnk form only one side of the other end as that made it fit in to the cut end

works wagon 5.jpg
works wagon 6.jpg

That all so far as i now need to nip in to some thingwicked in the morring to get some brass squre rod to make up a derick to go over the bogie on the non cab end

You certainly make On30 look attractive, Brian, and share a few other RMWebbers' trait of making things happen both well and so quickly! Really lovely stuff! Can we expect to see pics of the new stuff on your trestle soon?

You make these look very tempting! Chivers should pay you a retainer for showing how well their kits can be presented!
