The 58xx sound was a bit quiet so I have upped the overall volume a bit. They did not supply a list of CV's. I would still like to alter a few sounds such as the braking.

 

Yes, the 57xx lost it's handrail somewhere, which is rather annoying, and I have yet order a replacement. But might just make one from brass

 

I see the loco's are selling well, I was looking out Tower today and saw lots are already out of stock.

 

Made the basis for the ramp for the cattle dock this afternoon and mocked up the backscene to check if the height was practical.

 

Cheers, Ade.

Hi George, thanks. I reckon I am going with Chocolate and Cream after all.

 

Hi Martin, the loco was Dapol sound fitted. I am going to chase them for the CV list.

 

Cheers, Ade.

Ade,

 

I love those coaches! I just happened to be looking on you tube and learned a great deal about "SLIP" coaches. Kind of re-sparked my passion for british railway. How have you been!? Here in the states it's absolutely crazy, and now the second wave is coming in several states. I sense another lock down again...

 

Keep up with the work I like what I see, btw nice statue sitting outside the shop.

Hi Ade,

Hope all is well with you all. I did succumb and buy a 14xx and agree the sound is rather quiet. Did you manage to get a list of the CV’s from Dapol?

best wishes

Julian.

Hi Julian, not managed to do anything on the railway modelling front since my last post back at the end of June.

 

Been back at work since June 22nd and been very busy getting my sale online but now got a few days off on flexi furlough this week. 

 

Lez's job is looking very uncertain and that has been real worry now for the past three weeks.

 

Cheers, Ade.

Good to have a chat on the old Dog and Bone today Ade.

 

Really sorry to hear about Lez's worries, I hope it comes good for her, if not, it's into the Hot Tub with a BIG G & T.

.......All your locos seem to be missing the fireman's side handrail between the cab roof and side - is this a deliberate policy?!

 

I see the 14xx are getting low already although the 58xx, which is pretty much the same, is readily available.

 

 

I am uncertain that the  " side handrail between the cab and side" was present when all the 48xx and 58xx were built and believe it was a later addition ?

Agreed. Most pre- and immediately post-war 48xx and 58xx photos show no side handrail. By the early 50s, most seem to have them fitted.

Here is a reference in Peto's Register which should help.(see Footsteps)
