Progress has been unusuallying slow for me over the last few months!
Not much or as it is nothing has really happened on the Baseboard side of things bar me buying another set of folding lightweight plastic legs and a tunnel mouth.
Must finish track laying soon.
The loco fleet currentlystands at 4, but shall soon be 3!
A Dapol g w r pannier is making way as I spoilt myself with an unusualalternative in 1362.
I like different and having this on the branch is a little different. Some will say out of place, but in that case it's in good company with the 72xx!
It's brilliant black is to be re-sprayed soon and back dated to "great Western ".
A pair of sugar cubes are on stand by to make it sound sweet!
The 72xx is back in steam, having come across a v4 loksound chip in no81, which has been swapped .
Not sure of the project but it seems dated so will be re-blown with something a bit more up to date and playable?
Just a single 3w speaker in the boiler seems to give nice sound.
I have to search the Web world as I'm sure I saw that someone does a 1361 sound chip. Hope they do it on zimo !!
The 3rd loco that will be staying in paid service is no"81" an ex Rhymney 0-6-2T .
This it turns out is a scratch built loco by the late Brian bunce, a former club mate of mine at Barry and Penarth mrc.
To say I'm over the moon to get one of Brian's locos is an understatement!
It needs some repair and tarting up, work on which started today.
A zimo sound chip is installed with a digitrains pannier sound file.
Might have to upgrade that with something a bit beefier sounding?
Runs well enough though
