Goods Black as it should be?

 

 

Still amazed that anyone finds my work that inspiring!!

 

As for Beulah, have a sheet of Terrier transfers!!!

Goods black, as it should be! Will need to try and dig it out of my Hard Drive... 

 

I suspect I'm not the only one who finds your work very inspiring!

 

And Thanks for the transfers... very useful!

Wonderful stuff, especially the E4 shots. Marsh Umber goes right to my heart every time.

 

I wonder what Waterloo would make of this though! Their coaches casually abandoned in a stock box, and not a LSWR loco in sight!  :mosking:O

Oh don't worry about Waterloo! They've got an 0415 and a forthcoming M7 to pull their bogie coaches (Highly recommended resin kits by GRAmodels.), so nothing to wrry about there. I have more LBSCR Locos than LSWR ones (In LSWR Livery, the opposite is true for B****sh R*****ys stock!) but the inverse is true for coaches at the moment...

A cheap way of removing the worm: hold the worm in a vice between two sheets of lead, and then using a hammer and nail tap the shaft out. Its better if you can get behind the worm to hold it, but I've never been able to. The lead stops the worm from deforming while being held....

So, to halt all questionable talk about worms and laptops...  :O

 

I accquired a few more locos today, namely a very nicely rewheeled Triang M7 (Finished in a certain SR Black livery another modeller who occasionally hangs around this parish...) which will possibly end up in LSWR Drummond Green (I have overlays for that livery...) and (More interestingly, for me anyway) my first Welsh Loco! A Wills Finecast Taff Vale Railway U1 Class 0-6-2T, both accquired part-exchange for some old LMS stock I had, finished in a questionable GWR Lined green which features very poor handpainted lining! It will in due course be finished in TVR Livery (Lined Black isn't it?), almost certainly using overlays in part, to be able to run on my colliery layout as a semi-preserved loco (as per the preserved NSR 0-6-2T whilst in coal board service), and if I fancy running the layout (set in South Wales, somewhere near Mountain Ash, which was on the TVR system) in an earlier era with PO wagons aplenty and Manning Wardles instead of Austerities...

 

Will resume work on the Baltic on Monday whilst I attend to the new purchases (getting them photographed and added to my catalogue here: https://www.snupps.com/sem34090, not a complete list yet, especially with regards to hauled stock!) and continue building the O-16.5 loco that will be finished in LBSCR Improved Engine Green.

 

I suspect my next pre-grouping layout will emerge after the Colliery layout. I had intended to build a BR(S) BLT (Don't, Just Don't... :triniti: ) but given how common those have become, I suspect it may take the form of the LBSCR Era 'Minories' suggested on another thread...

I didn't realize that GRAmodels did the LSWR coaches (I assume it's the 42ft ones you have). Interesting.

 

I like the catalogue/photo album - hadn't heard of Snupps before.

I hadn't until I saw a video on youtube about it and its application to model railways! For a while now, I've had multiple attempts at catalogueing everything, but got bored after a certain number of locos. I saw this as having several advantages in that:

  1. There is an image of each item, useful (say) to have at a show when packing up for operators other than yourself to know what's yours.
  2. It's online, so I doubt I'll ever lose it. Whilst I've chosen to make mine public, you can make it private. In this case, for me, the online storage makes sense because, at a show, you can easily get it up on your portable Tele-phonetic wireless communications & researching device (Mobile Phone, to the commoners whom inhabite the modern world beyond the realms of this quasi-Edwardian forum!)
  3. It's easy to add and delete items. I take a photo of each item, then upload it with enough information for me to identify each item.
  4. It's free!

Usual disclaimer applies...

 

I highly recommend the GRAmodels Wagon & Coach kits, I had that 42ft bogie built within an hour!

I would appreciate a copy of the goods black bits when you find them. I need to line my E2 at some point!

 

I once again thank you for your kind comments about my modelling!!

 

If you see any other transfers I have done that you would like just let me know and I will send them over.

Any and all of them!!! I enjoy doing them, but where someone else has already done them I'd rather use those!

 

For now though, here's the ammended R1 Sheet, colour matched from the terrier, both for green and Indian red. Interestingly they match up well with pictures I took of No.263 before Hornby cunningly repainted her to match their model... :jester:

Thanks for that!! Really appreciated. I will dig through the other bits I have done to see what useful transfers I have that I can share with you. Some of mine need redoing before they are worth sharing.

 

How do you attach your paper overlays? I use transfer paper but I have noticed that this can in some cases distort the colour making it much harder to match paint colours when I am printing!

I just used normal paper, but would be interested to see results with white transfer paper!

Just noticed you were actually asking about how to attach them: I use UHU as my all-purpose glue of choice, and it seems to do the job here.

I may well print on both white transfer paper and regular paper. I can then upload a comparison for you to see.

 

I will go with whichever looks better, and if paper wins I will use UHU to attach thanks!

Once I have done tests to see the best finish on these I will re-jig your designs to fit my Terrier, and possibly the C Class and O1 as well. I will then send these back to you!

If you want, I can rejig them for the C Class and terrier: I have both, but you can do the O1! Sorry. I have both GBL and Bachmann C's, and multiple Hornby terriers...

Well if you have the time I wouldn't stop you!! :jester: :jester:

 

I have the GBL C Class, way to tight to get a Bachmann one!! and some Hornby Terriers. I wouldn't want to say anything that made it sound like I had enough!!

Thanks very much! I probably won't even have got any ink for the printer by then!!

Ooops. Am I bleeding your printer dry? Oh I am awfully sorry sir, may I mop it up for you? Oh, it's leaked onto the paper? Well Sir, All I can say is that's some rather handsome SECR insignia it has managed to form itself into! What do you mean it was meant to be British Railways, Whatever that is? No sir, this shop dates from 1910, so your printing press will be unable to print the insignia that you appear to require...

 

Good Day!

The printers primary use is printing transfers it ran out a while ago. If anything you have encouraged me to finally go out and get some!! As for British Railways, I'm not sure what that term means LOL

I, I, I model BR(S) in the 1950's besides pre-grouping. There. I said it. Now, excommunicate me if you so desire, and I shall never return!

 

Or you can let me carry on.

 

Choice is yours, Guvnor!

You may carry on!!! I used to model the 50's as well. Thankfully Oak Hill cured me!!

I suspect I shall be cured of my affliction in time, however there is one small obstacle, given away by my avatar and username...

 

I LOVE BULLEID PACIFICS TOO MUCH!!!

 

And that's unlikely to change anytime soon!
