@Northroader I knew of the French kit, firm is Est Modele.   I don't fancy spending that much on a kit, though I've heard it's good.

 

Also, we're drifting.   @Sophia NSE That is a quaint little thing.    Do you plan on adding some sheet to hide the gap?

I am indeed and the boiler piece I cut out is just the right size to cover that part too. It needs jacking up too as the body is slightly too low

Next to a future bash victim. I don't hate the LNER, honest, but they were nice and cheap to pick up!

Not perfect by any means, but it's my first (and probably not last) effort

Very cute little 0-4-0T, though may I suggest replacing the cylinders and motion on it to make it a bit more detailed. I am very much a fan.
And there is no issue here with modifying LNER locomotives.

Any recommendations as it's partly your fault I'm in this bodging mess to begin with! :D:D

I think next time I won't shorten the body quite as much so the chassis fits better and maybe go inside cylinder to make a 2-4-0...

That’s a bit of a half-arsed one!

Hmm. Actually, I'd keep the connecting rod for the driving wheels. Replace the piston rod and cylinder with maybe a Triang Duchess or something of similar ilk.

Nah, Bachman.    Strapping Thomas to the front of Emily.

Here is my latest Pugbash. Though really it's a multi-starter-tank-bash...

post-33750-0-60683100-1532463080_thumb.jpg

Introducing KLR No.11 Richard, heavily inspired by Corbs and made from a Caley Pug, a Dowlais D, a Nellie, the cylinders from a Triang Princess, a kit for a GER six-wheel tender and a piece of plastic tubing.

Hey Red, is this the kind of thing you were meaning, from some of your handiwork?

Exactly what I meant. Granted that particular loco doesn't exist anymore but not got reasons related to that.

Having had a look through spares online, I quite like the look of the cylinder block and piston rods from an Adams Radial. Would this work with my little tank?

Hmm. Depends, as I have no idea if the rods will be too long. Stylistically it'll certainly look in place.

Not a pugbash in the sense of being bashed from a pug, but I think my O-16.5 SR No.2 fits in here. Chassis and cab are from a Fleischmann diesel, tanks and boiler Hornby J83, Smokebox door from a Bachmann E4, Scratchbuilt bunker, coal rails from a Hornby compound.

This unfinished and rather dusty example from my stores cupboard might be of interest: another Tri-ang Nellie, cut down to produce a reasonable facsimile of the LSWR C14 on which the original model was loosely based.

I also scoured the net for some buffers, and found some nice metal Triang ones, which may well be the type with which she was fitted originally.

No, these had the separate head type buffers from first introduction. The L1 was the last Tri-ang loco with the one-piece buffers.

 

Nellie does look good as a 2-4-0T :good_mini:

And also the first one with see-through spoked wheels.

Looks like a shrunken version of an accucraft Dora
