  1. It was gloomy yesterday so I turned the layout lights on and tried running a few trains in the dark. Daft, but oddly fun. Anyway, a few random pics of variable quality. The station in general, I need to lightproof the roof more next time it is off. This is a lucky pic. I cant really see the from of the station building so its just done by point the camera at the mirror on the end of the layout and hoping. The resultant image is then reversed in preview. Through a window. Atmospheric, a bit....
  2. There are times when I can see the appeal of BR unlined black. About half way through decorating the No. 252 was one such occasion. However bit by bit it all came together. The final result is a bit bright, but the brass does tend to develop a patina of its own over time. As ever close photos show errors the eye misses and it needs some builders plates as well. A few pics ; Originally built as goods engines in 1878 the class were rebuilt as mixed traffic in the early 1900s, westinghouse fitted and repainted in lined blue. Last members of the second lot were withdrawn in 1932. A bit of video of 252 in a variety of mixed traffic roles. I found that to be a challenging build, but the end result is a bit of a character and a rather nippy wee engine.
  3. There are some things which just don’t scale, no matter what you do the real thing looks wrong in model form. Smoke and water are the obvious ones, but I’l add another. Dust. Scaled down they are not particles, they are lumps. So I have been enjoying running the railway a bit, collecting info and deciding what to build next. However I couldn’t help noticing that the station had become a bit dusty and once you have noticed it it sticks in your eye. Time for some cleaning, after all we can’t have the folk from Helensburgh passing through and thinking how mucky Glaswegians are. In previous blogs I have described my penchant for using magnets and the like so that things can be removed for maintenance. Time to put my theories to the test. Notice anything missing? There it all is on the bench ready for a really good clean. While I was at it I did a bit of lightproofing using Wenlocks tip of self adhesive foil and added some missing drainage. Windows. There are rather a lot of them. Oh well, box of cotton buds and a bowl of water. Took a while but there they are, all nice and clean. Doing that in situ would be well beyond my eyesight. All back safely in place. Oh, and just for fun. Mind you a few of those net curtains could do with a trip to the steamie.
  4. Having started on the 'What's on your 2mm Workbench' topic I thought It would be better to carry on in a new topic to keep everything together. The second bogie has been put together as has the floor and underframe. One issue with these kits is that there are often no tabs and slots to accurately locate parts and i had set the footboards on the first bogie too low, so they have been adjusted. The bogie mountings have a 'hump' across one direction and are mounted with these at right angles to one another so that one bogie keeps the coach level transversely, but can rock in the long axis, while the other can rock transversely. The pivots are studs of 14BA bolt and the bogies are retained by nuts soldered to pieces of scrap etch, the length of the studs being such that when the nuts are run up tight, the bogie is still free to pivot and rock. and from above: The brass rod gas tanks and the cast white metal headstocks keep the centre of gravity low and makes these coaches steady runners. the cast buffers, wire westinghouse brake pipes and etched hooks will be added nearer the end to reduce the risk of them being damaged. More wheels are on order. Body sides next! Jim
  5. The correct gears arrived and so with a fully assembled and tested gearbox I have been able to push ahead. Soldering needs a bit of a clean up, but thats the chassis built up and running smoothly. Driving the front wheelset means I can have a compensation beam at the rear. The kit suggests driving the centre axle, since driving the front axle would mean losing the view through under the boiler. However by using a roadrunner box and an extender with a narrow motor I was able to get the motor right up into the boiler and the drive goes down behind the front splashers. The slot in the bottom of the boiler is only 9mm wide and cannot really be seen from normal viewing angles. A pic with it paired up to the tender. The mini connectors are from Express Models. I didn’t want slop in the little end bearing causing fouling with the leading crankpin so I soldered a Gibson crankpin screw through the rod from the rear and so the piston rod runs on a steel crankpin bush to help keep it in line. A view from below. I managed to get a bit of weight in there and a fair bit in the smokebox and firebox areas. AJs are on small copperclad pads, removable if they ever need repaired. A side view. It all runs well, I am happy with the solution for the motor/gearbox allowing a view through the whole thing. Some primer and filler, then off to the paintshop.
  6. Well, there we are, a slap of paint makes all the difference. Rivets are Archers, easy to apply and they make a big difference on a model like this. No idea what is under that sheet, but it is heavy so this wagon moves as if it does have 16 tons on top. The chains and shackles were fiddly, but add to it all I think. Catching a bit of evening light. You can see that this wagon is properly scotched. There is a good reason for this, D27s like the other wagons in the same style, had no handbrake. Run as specials they would have wagons with handbrakes either side. Given that loaded it might be 27 tons that sounds a bit dangerous though I doubt they ever travelled outside the industrial areas served by the Caley and probably only in special short workings rather than as part of longer trains. So just for fun and I think typical of how it might have run here it is passing through Kelvinbank. Archibald McGregor hanging on and hoping it isn’t going far. I now have parts for the Cl.670 gearbox, so it is hopefully going to progress a bit with that.
  7. Progress on the 670 is delayed at the moment until I get the parts for the gearbox. Can’t be helped, difficult times slow things down. Anyway, I need to build something. I had a browse through drawings and books and settled on a D27 Machinery wagon. ( the CRA does sets of wagon drawings on a cd ) So with a bit of luck here is one I can make from the stuff I have. The body is laminated from 10 thou styrene cut on the silhouette. Bit of an odd wagon, big plates on the sides riveted to an internal frame of angle sections with a planked floor. Nice and simple. As you know I like to be able to drop wheelsets out, makes it all easier to paint too. Personally I think it also makes wagon building easier. All that faffing about getting it perfectly square and making sure all the wheels sit on a perfectly flat surface so they touch the perfectly flat track? Not something I ever managed to do very well. Anyway all that really means is just a pair of low profile internal compensation units soldered to a bit of coppeclad. Lands for ajs if I decide to fit them. Some lashing points made up from bits of scrap etch. Some primer, then the invasion of the rivets…..
  8. The engine body is not far off complete. A close photo shows areas that need some cleaning up. The gap between the rear of the boiler and the cab needs to be filled, the cab is square to the footplate so I’m not sure how that bit of drift happened. As you see there are a lot of holes, but I have the pipework bent to shape ready to go on post painting. The frames are ready to go. The cylinders have been moved out slightly and solid brass cross pieces and cylinder insides used. I use gibson wheels and the critical thing here is to get the driven axle right first time. Once that is in place I can address the slide bars. In order to do that I want to have the gearbox fully assembled and tested, so a slight delay until that is ready. So, slowly getting there.
  9. I am awaiting some parts for the engine, so I thought I would push on with the tender. The kit does provide all the spacers and a basic compensation beam for the tender chassis. But as usual I have odd ideas about these things. So the chassis sides are adapted for High Level hornblocks and then connected by a length of double sided copperclad. This gives two large lands on the top for pickups and suppression components. The semi circular compensation beam would be visible through the tender cutouts, so I fabricated this one . Good steel pivots to reduce friction and adjustable for ride height by means of an easily accessible screw underneath. Yep, completely lockdown madness, but why not. A pic of the chassis made up with wheels and brakegear. The pickups are gold tips from scrapped relays soldered to 12 thou spring steel guitar wire. Hopefully this will produce a low drag 6 wheel pickup to aid good running. Might need a bit of a tweek, but all seems to meet the pushing round the track and through points test. The tender body went together fairly smoothly. This class of engine ran with a bewildering array of tenders during their lives, so I have tried to work closely to a known period photo, some slight variations from the kit. Forming the top flare with its flared corners is a time consuming task, but I think I got it about right. Probably a bit of filling will be needed along the joint, but that will be easier to see after a coat of primer. As ever I see things on photos I missed before, a few bits of tidying up needed. For a while the CR used a strange style of handbrake with a vertical capstan wheel geared to a vertical shaft. I can only assume the gearing gave some mechanical advantage, but having a finer pitch on the threaded end might have been simpler. Anyway I have a tin of watch gears. So I had a go at fabricating the mechanism. The horizontal shaft is actually a tube so you can spin the handwheel round. Did I mention lockdown madness? Hope everyone is keeping well.
  10. So I picked up another kit from the Caledonian Railway Society at the Perth show today - I also have a number of other kits purchased over the last two or three years. Looking to get paint for them, - I was told that red oxide is the colour (for Caledonian condition), and was thinking that a 1:1 mix of Humbrol 73 matt wine and 100 matt red brown would give a good result. What paints have others used? Picked up bearings as well, so on Tuesday I plan to buy wheels (local model shop isn't open on Mondays). These will also cover a Highland Railway Jones 8 ton van - have the whitemetal axleboxes for this but will need to laser cut some springs for it as when I bought it they had run out of them - and a scratch build pug tender
  11. I have made a decent start on the body. The boiler is in two parts, I would have preferred the boiler etch to go all the way to the smokebox front and have the firebox wrapper go round that. Way round it was to find a bit of tube the right diameter and make a ring to support the smokebox wrapper and solder that to the smokebox front. The boiler and its spacer band can then be formed to the diameter of the tube and just slide into the wrapper. Someone will tell me I ought to buy a rolling machine. They would be right but, well one day. So the boiler is hand rolled. Key to that is really taking your time, it is a half etch and very delicate. Annealed first then rolled bit by bit until its the right diameter. Sags a little where its cut out for the motor, but I have an idea about that once I am really sure of the exact motor cut out size. The cab was fun. You can just see the brass fingers on the spectacle plate which are curved round to meet the roof. Solder generously and then file it back to a profile. I’m rather pleased with the way that came out. I have also drilled holes. Lost of them. Pipes all over on this one. Anyway, a rough progress pic. The boiler and cab are just sitting on the footplate, but all the tabs line up. Base of the chimney casting looks a bit plump too. A badly photographed westinghouse pump assembly. Gearbox assembly and chassis next.
  12. Sometimes you have to treat yourself. All the better if it supports the hobby as a whole. So I think a bit of loco building is in order. One of these from a caley coaches kit. Many thanks to Jim of Caley Coaches for getting it to me so efficiently, and to AGW and High Level for wheels and gearbox. The 670s were built in two lots and had a varied history with several rebuilds and swapping of tenders. Numbering is the usual Caley nightmare, indeed No. 719 carried 8 different Caley numbers and an LMS one through its 47 year life. For a full history the book to read is “Caldedonian Railway Locomotives , The Formative years“ by David Hamiliton” . A very interesting and lavishly illustrated book, I recommend it. I am therefore going for No. 252 which for my period would I think have the larger sandboxes, 6 wheel tender, westinghouse brake and be in lined blue livery. The kit contains two large etches, brass and n/s, nice brass castings and sundry bits, all well packaged with decent instructions. With time on my hands I have made a bit of a start. Some coupling rods. A foot plate in progress, interesting curves. The kit has a fold up former to aid with the valences , but some wood helps too. Splashers, a bit fiddly. Hope everyone is well.
  13. I have been with pottering on with the far corner of the layout, signals are installed, then unplugged and a lightweight scenic extension knocked up from foamboard and card. All a bit rough at the moment, but taking shape. I think it will enhance that corner and take the eye round to the storage yard in a more transitional way. Some sort of wooded area perhaps. I also painted a couple of figures and added them to this very odd thing that I made quite a while ago. Now you might well think that I have gone round the bend and dived into the world of steampunk which seems to be popular these days. But no, this is actually a model of a real steam locomotive, albeit a road locomotive rather than a rail one. Call it a mad easter quiz……….
  14. So to complement my ever increasing collection of Hornby Caledonian pugs (12 and still going) I thought I'd have a go at bodging an open wagon into a tender as was often coupled to these engines. I picked up a Lima 7 plank wagon cheaply (it had been repainted into a pink-grey colour) and cut it down - 2 planks high at the rear, and 4 planks high for the actual coal carrying part, based off of pictures of these tenders. I'm aware that it's too long, and the chassis style is too modern but it's a start. I plan to build another more prototypical one later, and this will be based off the size of my still to be completed True Line Models Diagram 22 wagon
  15. I've been in two minds whether to post this or not, this layout may not get past the drawing board. I have struggled to find some details so I am hoping for some help to fill in the blanks. Background A while ago I decided to split my modelling interests in the Caledonian Railway and the LNWR into the two scales I model, 7mm & 2mm. I selected 2mm for the caley as the line I'm interested in would benefit from a more expansive approach to incorporate some of the line side scenery. That was before the 2mm coal tank project, being 2mm and LNWR I felt I should support, I had toyed with the notion of doing something in North Wales. The LNWR branch lines have always held an interest, in particular the lines on Anglesey to Red Wharf Bay and Almwich. However, having three layouts on the go would split my attentions too much and nothing would get done. Ideally I need something I can run both CR & LNWR trains on, clearly the house styles of each company would not look right with the others rolling stock. I did ponder a joint branch line somewhere on the borders but this felt a bit false. I have a space about 7' x 9" so a BLT would suit in 2mm. Lenabo About 25 years ago a relative bought me a book entitled "Tales from the Buchan Line". The book is a series of articles about the GNoS Railway's lines from Aberdeen to Boddam, Peterhead and Fraserburgh The book was interesting although the GNoSR as a prototype never really grabbed me. However two sections jumped out at me as offering modelling potential. The first was the Cruden Bay Hotel Railway. The hotel was built by the GNoSR in a bid to create a resort and traffic, the hotel and golf course was connected to the railway by a half mile 3'6" gauge line. The line was powered by overhead centenary and trams cars were used to collect and transport guests to and from the station, the line was also used to collect goods and coal from the station and move laundry and supplies around the hotel grounds. The second was Lenabo. In 1916 the Admiralty was becoming increasingly concerned with the German U boat threat and developed a series of non-rigid airships, the NS class and later SS class to patrol the coast of Great Britain. These airships needed dedicated bases to fly from and the Admiralty commenced a building programme at various sites around the coast. Lenabo or RNAS Longside as it was officially known was situated three miles from the GNoSR station at Longside. Being relatively remote the contractor engaged to build the base laid a railway line from the station to the base complex. The RNAS obviously thought this useful as they kept the line once the base was open. Looking at the records a considerable tonnage of goods ran to the airbase, all worked by GNoSR engines. The base housed between 500 and 1500 staff (depending which source you read) so needed a fair amount of supplies just keep those mouths fed, coal for the base (also used to generate the gas for the airships), spare parts, petrol (in cans and barrels transported in open wagons) and munitions. The airships were also assembled on site, presumably also brought in by the railway. Additional passenger trains moved the troops in and out of the base. The track layout in the book doesn't quite match the descriptions, it is described as three loops. Two are shown turning to run right angles to the approach track. One ran to the Airship shed the other to the power house and gas holders. Relocation As mentioned the GNoSR never interested me. However what if the RNAS built bases served by the Caley and the LNWR? Well as luck would have it they built one at Llangefni, about three miles from the LNWR's Almwich branch on Anglesey (sound familiar). It was never rail connected but, what if it was? The other location will be North Connel, there is an airstrip there today (grandly titled Oban Airport) and Oban and Kerrera were used as bases by Coastal Command during WWII so the site is feasible, albeit the RNAS never built a base here. The relocation gives the option of running trains form both companies into the base. The infrastructure will be Standard RNAS and not tied to any particular operating company. The branches were operated as one engine in steam so no signalling equipment required. With the centenary of these bases approaching (they became operational in 1917) I think the model would offer a nice variant to the BLT standard. So far so good. I will post more details as the plan develops, however, I am struggling to find details of the infrastructure on the bases. Most, if not all, were demolished in the early twenties so only had a life span of 5 years. There appears to have been some industrial infrastructure to generate the gas on site, although I've not found any details. I am also on the look out for any books relating to the bases or airships. Any help greatly appreciated! Edit:- I've just realised the Airship Station was RNAS Longside, not Longsite, so the above has been changed accordingly.
  16. These are made from the latest True Line Models resin body produced by the CRA. Many thanks to all involved. The description pre-diagram means that they were built bfeore the introduction of the official diagram book and therefore don’t have a diagram number. More details here; https://www.crassoc.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1479 I have built them in my usual way, copperclad sub chassis, rocking W irons, internal sprung buffers, all the bits from 51L. Resin bodied wagons are very light, so the large crate and the load under the sheet are weighted. Anyway a couple of pics. slightly faded livery, getting on a bit by the Edwardian era. A harsh close up showing the roping cleats. A more general shot putting them in context. Anyway, good luck everyone.
  17. Does anyone of the collective have or know where I could find drawings of the Station Buildings at Buchanan Street, the rebuilt version post 1930s? I've had a look at the CRA Forum, but not found anything there. Does anyone know if there is anything in public archives, such as NRM, Glasgow Uni., etc? All help and direction gratefully received. Best Scott
  18. Some photos of the brake wagons. Both have a rather rough appearance, but I doubt they were high up the list for maintenance. I have made a few guesses about the final finishing. Firstly, I’m not sure about the running numbers. I know that No. 185 was of this type so I have just used a couple of close low numbers. Being built on early wagon frames they might just have been painted on rather than having number plates. Secondly, it was CR practice to paint the ends of brake vans vermillion. These brake wagons don’t have much of an end, so I have just painted the outside of the end footboards red. The overall colour seems to have a bit of a purplish tinge when photographed. Thirdly, lamp irons. There is an amendment on the drawing of the later type of brake wagon indicating that lamp studs should be fitted, but that is dated 1913. I have no idea whether that applied to the earlier type as well, but if the earlier type had them I would guess that the later type would have them fitted at build. However I can’t imagine going out on the main line at night without one so I have fitted 235 with a lamp just fixed to the handrail with wire. Might well have been the kind of improvised solution applied at the time. If more accurate information comes to light then I can always redo them This is my take on how they would be used. A small trip working. Four empty cattle wagons, an old pig iron wagon and a brake wagon out on the main line. It might have kept the BOT happy, but it looks like Archibald would prefer a proper brake van.
  19. Dear all, A technologically (or rather rmweb) inert colleague has inherited a part completed scratch built Caledonian coach. He intends to refurbish it for use on the South Hants MRC layout Hope under Dimore, but as an LNWR modeller his knowledge of the CR is smaller than his ability to post on RMweb! As I was the one that proved CR though coaches ran daily on the North to West route,, thus causing the problem, he asked me to try to find out about it. However, despite my web prowess, as a GWR man, my understanding of the CR is even smaller than my interest in things LNWR.... So could you good souls help two finescale disciples find the correct Caledonian path? This is what he's got: What we need is: What type of coach is it? What are the under frame and bogie arrangements/type? What are the roof details? Does anyone have drawings or pictures of the roof or underframe? Thanks! drduncan
  20. Many years ago I made a CR 782 class from the SE finecast kit. There are some pictures of in in service in some earlier blog posts. The basic whitemetal body was fine, pretty accurate and it went together well. It was getting to look very tired, needed a repaint and some details were the worse for knocks and being stuck back badly. I was never entirely happy with the chassis. Centre axle drive, semi rigid with slightly rocking outer axles. Never picked up really well, too highly geared and the motor filled the cab. Hmm. However the most obvious fault is that it is the wrong loco. A bit of history. The 9 members of the 29 class date from 1895 and were fitted with condensing apparatus for working the Glasgow central lines. The same basic design was used for the later 120 members of the 782 class built between 1898 and 1913. So for where I’m based the 29 class is a bit more appropriate. Right, it was 782 class No. 245 and now its going to be 29 class No. 203. Chassis built up. AGW frames and wheels re used. Rear axle driven from a high level gearbox and extender with a mitsumi motor. Compensated with high level hornblocks which I thought were a very clever fold up design. Having a silhouette makes cutting balance weights a doddle. The body ready for quite a lot of filling and a spot of primer. Backdating to a 29 class mainly involves extra pipework, a westinghouse pump, air tanks and different footsteps. Paint shop next.
  21. I wish everyone a good Christmas with a chance to drive a few trains and enjoy some modelling time. So here we are, a Christmas special. Many thanks for all the encouragement, discussion, hints and tips you have all contributed. I enjoy reading and learning from RMweb, keeps my enthusiasm going. All the best, Dave.
  22. I have been sorting out the western end of the layout so the boards have been wheeled out for access. Getting a bit chilly this time of year so pvas do take a while to dry for the scenic stuff. Anyway, a few pics of that corner. I’m not entirely happy with the brick gable end of the factory. I keep an eye open for something more suitable but as ever its the problem of getting a good square on photo of it. At least the trains are running again.
  23. I have pushed on a bit with the brake wagons, just about ready for some primer. They are small, but I have managed to get enough weight in there for them to run smoothly enough and keep the compensation working properly. Here’s a harsh picture of the underside, nothing particularly special but the use of a copperclad sub chassis does give decent fixings for W irons, ajs and the buffer springs and allowed me to get a slab of 1mm brass in as a spacer. Brake gear is a chopped up etch from the bits box. A photo on the track. I’ll put the brake stanchions and the lower footsteps on later. The handrails do bow in a bit, though I suspect the prototypes ended up like that too. A few more bolt heads needed too, but primer first.
  24. Happy new year to everyone. So not one for celebrations and fed up with the dead time twixt Christmas and New year I decided to make something. I looked about and ferreted in various boxes, what did I have at my disposal? One last sheet of 10 thou styrene. An idea formed, a brake wagon. Something that has been sitting in the back of my head for a while. So I dug out the wagon book, scanned and sized the the drawing and re-read the section about them in the book and the CR forum. Brake wagons were essentially an open wagon with a brake stanchion on it. Their original use was was as a brake vehicle in yards or short trip workings. The one I’m making was built under Drummond but a further 41 were hurriedly converted from old wagons in 1905 when the BOT complained that the CR had been running short trips on the mainline with no brake van at the end of the train. The drawing is not detailed, more of an outline. However the salient features are that these wagons were just 12 foot long with a 6 foot wheelbase. They were however weighted to 10 tons. They may have been converted from earlier wagons, but no details below the solebar are known, nor has any photo of one turned up. ( If anyone has one, shout ). Why two ? I designed the bits in the silhouette software, worked out how many of each part was needed and transferred them to a cutting sheet layout. Came to half a sheet of styrene. Click, click click. Nuff said….. Some parts cut and laminated. Fiddly to stick together, but coming along.
  25. Another go at a sheeted wagon. Fair criticism of the way my early attempts at roping sheets down led me to consider a more realistic way of doing things. Looks a bit better in terms of roping, but I think I could improve the sit of the sheet itself. The starting point is a CR D15 dropside whitemetal kit from 51L. This is made up in my normal fashion. However in order to tie the ropes down I needed to fit cleats to the solebar right in the corner where it meets the bottom edge of the curb rail. A bit of study suggested that these were a basic hook on the D15, some wagons had a T shaped fitment. As far as I can tell there were 4 on the sides and 2 on the ends. I drilled through at about 45 deg , 0.3 mm. Brass wire was inserted through these holes and superglued from the floor side. I say brass, but I’m not sure what it actually is. You know those fizzy wines where you get a net of brassy looking wire round the cork, well its that stuff. Much softer and easier to bend than brass rod, almost like 5 A fuse wire. The sheet is I think an old exactoscale one. Basically wet it with water and a tiny spot of pva, mould it round the wagon and foam load. When dry ease it off. Ropes of elastic EZline superglued on to form loops. Thats a fiddly job….. Well, hmm. It does look better than bits of cotton tied round the whole thing. I am still thinking about a way of reinforcing the lower sheet edge and having the rope pass through holes ( doubt I could manage a scale eyelet ) Given the prevalence of sheeted wagons in trains it is something I want to keep nibbling away at, but thats for next time.
