DJH C2X Part 2


Mr.S.corn78

The body and tender fell together without too many issues apart from the usual flash on the moldings.

 

The chassis was built pretty much OTB using the DJH motor and gearbox with a little bit of modifcation to enable tension lock couplings to be added at the end.

Hi,

I've got two of these plus a C2 next on my list to build once I've finished a batch of 2 x E1 and a D1 all from Albion kits....

An observation - the tender on your kit looks to be different around the footplate level from the one in mine - I must have a look and check.......

It would be nice to see the E1 and D1 builds. I am trying to scratch build an E1 in 4mm but getting the information is challenging

Nice job. The C2X was the first kit I built and I'm still pleased with mine.

Hi,

The best printed sources are D L Bradley, Locomotives of the LBSCR, part 2 (RCTS) and J H Russel, Pictorial Record of Southern locomotives (OPC) - this has weight diagrams for all SR locos and drawings for some.

There are a couple of Locomotive Illustrated that have photos of E1s ( I can check which editions if you are interested)

I would not be surprised if there are works drawings in the collection at NRM, but as I'm building kits, haven't bothered with that source.

The Brighton Circle is a mine of information, and they have a Facebook page that  gives their details or see http://www.lbscr.org/History/Circle/index.html

certainly worth looking at the "modellers digest" (download link on the circle's website)

I also have an SE Finecast E1 and D1 which are both almost complete (photo attached)

Hope that helps

Richard

Hi Richard,

 

It may well be as this was just an out of the box build as the custimer just wanted a model of the loco thta he rembered seeing most of the time where he lived.
