All the best,

Right, let's start adding some pictures!

 

I think I'll begin with a screenshot of my LSWR 48ft Family Saloon artwork and attach some GER Artwork.

post-33498-0-60301300-1515797715.png

 

Then reply to James' (Edwardian's) post in another thread...

 

The coaches will generally reflect my choice in locos rather than the original PC range, so starting with LBSCR, LSWR and SECR, then followed by LNWR and GER (Probably). I have done some limited GWR artwork, but not much that's of any use or value to anyone. I quite fancy doing Midland stock, but (a bit like the LNWR really) it's significantly better supported than, say, the GNoSR. As I'm doing this as a hobby, not a business, and at present are not expecting people to pay for it, I am more than willing to cover less supported railways, even ficitonal ones...

 

WNR Coaching stock, Mr J.E. Dwardian? If you are able to specify the various features you wish your coaches to feature, and with further knowledge of the livery, then we will see what we can arrange for you. I assume a private saloon for his Lordship would be in order, and of course all the peasant trucks Third Class stock can be finished to any standard that Sir thinks the poor  unsavoury Lower class travelling public would benefit from.

Good to see you have started a thread for this!!

 

I am looking forward to seeing what you have done, and also to seeing some LNWR stock (yes really!!)

Your alligence to your comrades of Brighton appears to be waning Mr Lightning. Be Careful. The men in umber are watching you very closely as of now.

 

LNWR stock will come after LBSCR, LSWR, SECR, WNR and GER Stock. Of course, WNR only applies if the CME replies to my previous correspondence with regards Peasant & Cattle   (Non) Passenger Carrying Coaching Stock for the Poor Scum who are born to clean our chimney General Population of Achingham and Castle Aching.

Sir Eustace,

 

I assue you my interest in LNWR stock is entirely innocent! I only want to model the "Sunny South Express" as it heads down the Cuckoo line behind a B4, having been diverted from the Brighton mainline!!

They all says that... they all says that! Watjyer think I am, a nidyurt? Git adav it... pull the other one. 

 

Oi! I didn't mean lierally 'pull the other one'... I'll 'ave yer, I'll 'ave yer!

 

Aneeyway...

 

Reminds me to try and get some B4 drawings... Triang L1 chassis?

 

Sir Eustace... hmm. Started on the SECR, but I feel that another figure would be more in-period...

 

All the best,

Yes I will be using the Tri-ang L1 chassis actually!! I'm never one to waste a good X.04!!!

 

I think I have the drawings in a book somewhere. When I dig it out I will scan them and send them over to you!!

That would be very much appreciated! I bought the L1 ages ago for another project, and at present it's the only spare 4-coupled chassis I have! I'll probably swap the slightly filthy X04 with a 1980's one out of an E2 that got a Chinese chassis. The E2 one is brand new, not a single mark on it, and the brushes aren't marked either. It's never been run!

 

Which brings me to ask: how do you get worm gears off of X04's? I need the old worm gear on the new motor...

I have a tool for pulling the worm off. No idea where it is at the moment but I got it from eBay. I usually refurb the X.04s myself when redoing the engines. With a rare earth magnet and some new brushes and a damn good oil they will run as well as any modern motor!!

Ah, the 'SSE' or 'Sunny South Special' as referred to in some material. Don't forget it reached most of the South Coast by various means; the Kent resorts also received their own service, but I imagine this was more likely to have been from East Anglia and the North (East) via Stratford and the North London line. (this is my long-winded way of saying I also take an interest in the LNW as well as the GNR)

 

Sem, you asked on my thread about locomotives we'd be interested in covers for; I'd be interested to see end-of-war and immediately post-war LBSCR Terriers. The E2 would be interesting, too, in the same livery; there's a scale body available on Shapeways.

 

I'm trying not to get carried away with ideas for you to try out now!

I have some for the E2 somewhere... Hornby, not scale. Same for the terriers, though I need to look into what liveries you refer to, and which war! Boer War? WW1? WWII? Cold War?! War on Terror?!!  :tomato:

 

I also meant what locos might anyone like to see me do as 3D prints! Can't say how long until they'd be available, but I'd be willing to do them nonetheless.

The new motor is still an X04, just a new one rather than a knackered one!

 

Will need to look into that tool...

Well I did mean WW1; there's not much point in producing covers for WWII given everything was turned out in black... :P

 

As for 3D prints, I'd love to see an LBSC B1 tender locomotive. There are many locos I'd love to have, 3D printed or otherwise, but a fair few of them such as the Brighton B2s, 3s and 4s are easy enough to scratch build in brass or plastic.

 

I suppose something ubiquitous on railway systems would make sense, or less common or not widely produced locomotives. Ooh, alternative tenders would be brilliant, actually, for locomotives which had the potential to have run with different types.

I have drawings for the B1 (In that book I mentioned), so that will be happening soon-ish (I have a triang M7 chassis block to measure for it... B2's, B3's and B4's should also be happening, and I have CAD for a D1 0-4-2T drawn up, with the E1 and D2 to follow at some stage.

 

Tenders will be done, and I think I will do a C2 (And C2x possibly too) based on your suggestion: long lived, Popular, and fairly ubiquitous.

Thought I'd better show a layout and some trains other than an R1!

 

My current stop-gap LBSCR layout, almost entirely proprietry (I know... I just wanted something quickly!):

 

Salvington is a small station, almost a halt (but pre-dating the Railmotor era by some way) on a fictional branch heading North from West Worthing up to Findon and on to Washington and Ashington. At least 90% of the inspiration for the layout was Oak Hill, so it's all Gary's fault!

Initial Construction shot, with some of my kit-bashes visible on the left!

 

post-33498-0-21986800-1515804925_thumb.jpg

My two I.E.G. Terriers. I do have Beulah in her 2-4-0 form in the works (Gary: where did you get the transfers for that one?) picked up for £10 brand new from the Bluebell Sales stand at East Grinstead Show last year. I don't know how I managed to get that for that price, but I did!

Bachmann E4 at Salvington on a Brighton service.

And looking the other way... towards Ashington.

The aforementioned E2: Note the Peco hut and buffers. And the code 100 track...

 

post-33498-0-22219200-1515805034_thumb.jpg

Not Salvington, but Waddon makes an appearance on my West London micro-layout 'Ealing East'. Set in the 1950's, but rule 1 and all that!

 

post-33498-0-78515800-1515805059_thumb.jpg

The more usual shunter of Ealing East Yard, if a Pannier is absent.

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:

Still amazed that anyone finds my work that inspiring!!

 

As for Beulah, have a sheet of Terrier transfers!!! terrierSheet.pdf

You can get arrested for things like that!

They were exceptionally well made motors, so I am not surprised how well they perform with a refurb.

Take it to the local repair shop, and tell them it got damaged because of a discussion on a model railway forum abouts4xually abusing worms, and see how they react..;)

Luckily it is water proof. The biggest problem with that however is that I used to own to local laptop repair shop! So they would all believe me!!
