  1. Hello everyone! This is my first own thread on RWeb, and I hope you'll all find it interesting enough to follow. The basic gist of this thread is to outline and trace the progress of my various projects that are ongoing in terms of rolling stock. As I'm a student I haven't got my own layout (yet) though I hope this will change in the summer as I may have space available at my grandmother's, with whom I live when I am not in term time at university (I'm studying quite far from home, hence the 'second home' with her.) My proposed layout is to be set roughly around Hastings and Saint Leonards circa 1920-1930 which will give me scope for plenty of liveries, and for various forms of rolling stock in different stages of semi-standardisation or modification. The projects currently standing are as follows: ex LSWR K10 4-4-0 from a GBL T9 and Hornby spares ex LSWR C8 4-4-0 from a GBL T9 and Hornby spares (this locomotive and the K10 were both transferred to the Eastern section during the early days of grouping for suitability trials, as well as a couple of T9s) Pullman rake made up of two pre-1928 matchboard sides and one 1928 steel car (this will most likely be modified). Also in sights is a Railroad Pullman to be hacked and modified into an SECR Pullman similar to 'Topaz'. Twelve wheel Pullman clerestory, similar in design to a Brighton Pullman car, possibly to be named 'Rye Harbour' or 'Hastings' Five Maunsell restriction 1 or 0 coaches, four of which are the Graham Farish models. These are to be repainted and receive new corridor ends, possibly new bogies when finances allow. The old Hornby coach will need to be lowered in ride height, also, to match the others. Pullman 'Pup' baggage car, from a toy my siblings gave me a few years ago and a scratch-built six wheel chassis. Ex Wisbech and Upwell tramway coach for the Kent and East Sussex fictional extension of the line from Hastings via Tenterden to Ashford I will hopefully upload some photos soon of these projects; granted my pace isn't the best but I try to work on these projects when I can. Obviously being a student presents an issue financially but I very rarely buy anything brand new; I prefer to improve what I can. I am not a scale modeller by any means but I do strive for accuracy where it can be achieved. For instance, in terms of Maunsell bogie stock I will try to find any examples of low-window stock I can, and if these are of the 0/1 restriction, even better. Liveries will be afforded a little imagination- I doubt Maunsell settled on a livery straight away for the railway post-war and so some slight deviations from the known olive scheme will be afforded, perhaps cream and olive on a coach or two, probably an old four or six wheel coach. The locomotives will be presented in all forms of liveries, wartime grey and black, weathered olive, umber, SECR fully-lined... I like variety, what can I say? The interesting aspects of these projects will most likely be the lining (I do have a bow-pen) and the painting, which I hope to do with my airbrush (which has not left it's box yet... oh.) Anyway, I look forward to keeping you all informed, and I hope to update this thread soon. - Alexandra
  2. Hello all! I've asked a couple of people privately about these vehicles, but so far haven't found anything concrete, and I was wondering if anyone had any further information or diagrams they could divulge? According to an article in the Railway Modeller from way back when, a handful of these LSW vehicles were reconstituted into sets with ex-SECR Birdcage coaches and ran on Bexhill West and Hastings services, which is ideal for me, but, as I say, I have no real visual information on these. Many thanks! - Alex
