Hi All, This is my new project, I have done a few 5 inch gauge Standard Gauge Locos, But i have a soft spot for the early narrow gauge stuff,After a visit to wales,and a few books later .I decided to build Linda in original condition,As im getting older i decided to make it in 3 1/2 inch ,But it is still big,and getting heavy,I am not putting all the fine detail on her,like i did on some of my other locos, as i want to play with it before i get much more older,I have also started some wagons to go with it.

I had to look up what a 'Linda' is. It's a pretty little loco. The inclined cylinders give it an interesting look.

 

Looking good so far.

Thanks Giles, I usually build 5 inch gauge,Standard gauge locos,And as im getting older i decided not to build anymore as they are getting harder to move around,But after a holiday in wales,I was quite hooked on the narrow gauge,Then after a lot of reading im quite hooked on the Penrhyn railway ,So that is how LINDA came about,It is also getting a lot more heavier than some of my 5 inch tank locos,and im also a lot older than when i started to build it,So it will be raised track not ground level. Much better for my back.
