4 clean locos which are about to be sent off to Tom Foster for weathering.
All have recently been converted to EM by myself.
The DJH J10 I acquired already built but was OO gauge. The loco was easy to convert with new axles and spacer washers. The tender was a little bit more work as it has needed quite a bit of whitemetal material removing so the wider gauge wheels would fit. Ideally this needs a new inside frame for its tender. Ive renumbered it to 65177 a Walton one.
The Bachmann 04s have Markits wheels, EM gauge 3mm axles, Markits hex crankpins which enable the Bachmann coupling rods to be used unmodified. Although the 1st and 3rd axles crankpins needed a bit of work for them to fit due to tight clearances.
Both I have renumbered to Gorton locos and ones that I have photos of on Walton shed, 63713 and 63743.
The Bachmann J11 another Gorton one which didn't need renumbering I just changed the tender crest for a smaller one.
The J11 was quite an easy loco to convert to EM, 3mm axles, spacer washers,Markits insulated wheels, Markits hex crankpin nuts again which I like and again no need to alter the coupling rods.
Bachmann tenders are Markits wheels put on to Bachmann axles.
The 3 Bachmann locos have Zimo decoders and stay alive capacitors.
All have had the wheel balance weights glued on and the wheels and motion painted black before they sent off to Tom for weathering.
