...hmm. Must have forgotten about it. I've had a lot going on of late.

Well, never mind about that - Here it is!
https://www.shapeways.com/product/HT9TTQ7UW/london-blackwall-railway-2-2-2wt-modernised?optionId=111649399

I am assured that the 'proper' version of the L&BR 2-2-2WT will appear on the CDC Designs Shapeways shop soon. 

To run through the features of the modernised one:

- New Sprung-Type buffers replacing old leather-pad type.

- New Worsdell Boiler

- New Worsdell cab, extended side-sheets.

- Coal Rails.

- GER Destination Board slots on smokebox.

 

I apologise for the ridiculously high pricing of this, and other, models but in terms of selling Shapeways is the only option really open to me. If anyone has a better printer and wants to try and print any model on it then I am happy to send them the .stl file for that purpose.

Very nice design,  whats the intention on how to handle the slidebars/frames and crosshead interface? Thats the reason Ive avoided locos with buddicom type frames

To be quite honest, Killian, I hadn't thought about this as I didn't draw up the original CAD! I shall report back later!

I see there's a proviso on the Shapeways site about this being unsuitable for motorisation. I think, though, if you just used the body and built brass frames I see no reason why it couldn't be motorised. As Killian says, the issue would be with the mechanical parts in the slidebars, cylinders, etc. and you could hide the actual mechanism behind the 3D printed cylinders in some manner.

That isn't the issue - Other 3D Printed locos have 3D printed chassis that work perfectly well. My actual problem is that, as it is currently, there's very little room inside for a motor and some weight.

I will have a think, might yet come up with something.

 

For those of you seeking one of these locos in prototypical London & Blackwall Condition, it is now available via the CDC Designs Shapeways shop, along with a Manning Wardle K Class:

Unfortunately the 'modernised' Blackwall tank is more expensive due to it's being larger (height-wise) and using more material.

 

Expect more models based on CDC Designs' CAD in the future! :)

No. Sorry. :(

Shame. No worries, just asking; have one spare from my original No.12 so trying to work out what to do with it. 

 

My line just is perfect for tank engines, which is good as I love small tank engines anyway. So the more the merrier in my eyes.

What is the wheelbase of the L&B loco? Wondering if motorising front and rear axles with a motor bogie (and drivers as free-wheeling on stub axles) could be the answer.

Hmm. Any ideas for an industrial tank to fit onto a Mainline J52 chassis? 

 

J72 surely? Industrials tend to have much shorter wheelbase to deal with tight radius curves.

I'll have a look in a bit...

I took a look at my j72 recently and found the chassis to be a bob on match for manning wardle Marquis,  pity about the motor jutting into the cab though, incidentally for the peckett w4 chassis I think this little RSH might be chunky enough to fit

Indeed. Whoops, wrong number :p The J52 is a large saddle tank IIRC. D'oh!

Thank you very much Sem and CDC, i have placed an order. Mine is going to get a tender and be a little more Crewe in appearance. I will probably hide the motor in the tender.

Quite - Proved to be a brilliant workbench, with plenty of room underneath the layout for storage!

 

I will warn members of this forum that this layout won't be pre-grouping, and it's highly likely that it won't be able to easily host pre-grouping stock. It's currently looking like it's going to be an essay in SR Exmouth Junction Concrete products...

Sleep, my child, and peace attend thee
All through the night;
Guardian angels God will lend thee
All through the night;
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and Vale in slumber steeping;
Love alone His watch is keeping
All through the night. 

 

Okay so maybe things aren't quite so bad as to require what I believe is a traditional Welsh funeral hymn, but I have been awake all through the night doing CAD work so that line came to my mind!

 

The result of said CAD work is a station building for the layout above:

image.png.3a6d767890c00a32640486a8892a0011.png

Hopefully I will get it printed today, then painted up. I should mention that the above layout has a show booked on Monday...

 

For anyone who's interested, , the front and back of the building are based on the Western half of Havenstreet, the ends are based on the Eastern end of the same, and the canopy is SR standard, but specifically drawn from plans intended for Yeovil Town. I think it looks quite good! Not necessarily attractive, but good. Especially given it's my first proper attempt at a printable building! It breaks down into six print runs, five if I work it out right.

The two halves of the station building have printed with a good enough amount of success (some slight mis-printing of the wall, but nothing major):
