  1. Things have certainly been a little odd of late with the Coronavirus Pandemic putting restrictions on the whole country, so I downed tools on Oak Road and moved outside to create Oak Garden....an OO Gauge 85’ double track loop with an 8’ long, foot high viaduct, a triangular junction and a main station based on Totnes. It’s taken a whole month to build the framework and get some track down, and I still don’t have a complete loop! This will give you an idea of what I’m up to..... If the weather holds up I may actually get a whole loop by next weekend
  2. It wasn't me, but I am selling them now if anyone's interested.
  3. Yes Grizz, that’s them, and as Jo says. The Revolution ones need the shocks cutting off and then I’ll just use plastic rod to replicate them in the right place. I may not bother flattening the tops though.
  4. The reason I asked about the bogies was that they look similar to the Revolution ones and can be easily modified to represent the other TF25s under the JNA/A i was going to cast the box but I’ve taken it apart - I just wasn’t happy with it, and I’ve since found a 3D print for one in 2mm which I’ve asked if it can be scaled up. That’s an interesting box of wagons you have there!
  5. Where did you get the bogies from on those flat wagons Grizz?
  6. I was a bit disappointed with my first effort, so I’ve reworked it. I’ve replaced the horizontal rib and put it in the correct place. I’ve filed the weld line down and although it still looks way too big, it looks better than it did. The vertical rib supports are the bits that’s killing it because I can’t get them to look uniform. I wish I’d just left them square now and not bothered trying to angle them! Anyway, it’s not a million miles off so I’ll fill in the scratches along the bottom, tidy a few bits and pieces up, and then get casting.
  7. Yep, NACCO JNA/A, but I’ve messed it up a bit. The Roco boxes are too low but almost the right width and bang in the right length. The downside is there’s a whole load of work to do with them so it’s probably just as easy to start from scratch. My issue is I’m pretty useless at making square boxes - give me some weathering to do, or build scenery (if you’ve seen my trainset you’ll see why) and I’m fine, but this is harder than I thought.
  8. I didn’t make the best job of it Grizz! Still, it was good practice. I’m going to start again from scratch and try and build it properly. Cheers Mike
  9. Whilst not 100% scratch built, my JNA/A has finally got started. I’ve used a Roco box as a base and built around it. Once it’s finished I should be able to cast some more. Bogies may be available from George at some point but I’m using a set of my Revolution JNA/T ones at present.
  10. I’ve done a few more JIAs but I thought I’d just post a few pictures for people to look at... ...firstly, the China clay train heading towards Westbury.... ...mini me taking a video of the China clay train rumbling though...,with my own tag on one of the wagons... ....an aerial view of the same train..... I’ve got some more bits to do to the station tomorrow so I’ll post some more pictures once I’ve finished. In the meantime, have a look at what Rhys and Ian have been up to with their layouts, Porthleven and Exford in Shed threads
  11. The tail light itself is one of the DCC Concepts Modern ones connected to the TrainTech AL4 modules
  12. I’ve taken a break from working on the station and done some work on a pair of JIAs. One has had a tail lamp fitted (what a pain in the backside that was) and both have been weathered as per current day running. Here’s one sat on the station board.... ...only 8 more to go!
