Hello all,

 

as you may have seen I have been a bit quiet on my normal thread, some of the is due to me doing a prototype kit build and some of this is due to one of my M/C tools going down.

 

I will say that this loco is an 0-4-0T and may fill in the gaps in some people's loco fleet. It will be green.

 

The wheels for this build are now on order.

 

OzzyO.

All the best,

Castle

*Well, it could be that little thingy the GWR had couldn't it?

Hello all,

 

I will say that it's not ex G.W.R. and it's a steam loco. It also survived past nationalisation.

 

I have seen a very nice model of the Fowler 0-4-0DM. shunter that the G.W.R. had and I can remember one that was like it it on the L.S.&H.R. (Fluff) it was as week as p!ss until we found the second set of gears.

 

OzzyO.

Are you test building the Darjeeling and Himalyay B class for EDM? And painting it in early livery? That would be interesting!

Cheers

My God, twelve posts already and not a glimpse of the thing being built. Still, nowhere near the record involving, er, "Alcazar" and a bloke going by the name of Jeff.... :stinker: :jester:

I'm not sure at the moment but I think it'll be an 1833 motor with maybe a London Road gearbox.
