That'll make John chuckle..
Thanks for the update Tim.
This is a typical GER track layout and will prove interesting in operation with the push/pull working in and out from the country end and the conventional two or three coach suburban passenger running in and being run round and taken back into town.....and then there's the goods.
No pics of the 40 !!!!
You wouldn't like it as he has only gone and painted it the wrong colour....
Oh no he hasn't he's painted it the only livery it should be ....well that's how I remember them.
And another visitor today at Love Lane was an LNWR 0-8-0.
Tim, John and myself attended and an extra board was fitted on the end of the layout and covered in cork and some short lengths of track laid.
Webb used a centre bearing for some of his engines... I looked at your photo of the frame (posted some time back) and I could not see such a feature. Although this might upset the LNWR afficinados I have no idea which of the Webb classes had the centre bearing so I hope that you can provide some insight into that aspect of LNWR engine design.
Maybe wrong colour, But very nice, all the same
No centre bearing on the A class but I do know that some other LNWR loco's do, I'll have a look through my info and find out which.
It was great to see the progress on Love Lane today. It is shaping up to be an excellent layout. Shame it will be too big for the scale33 competition.
Well done guys.
Another Sunday meeting that I have not managed to make.... must try harder in 2013
You and me both...
And me into the trying harder group.....
No pictures yet, but I have made start on the Parkside kits. I have the loco coal wagon assembled, sprung and just needing details. Having perfected the method of springing using Slaters plunger pick up springs and plastic rod (I tried a couple of methods springing a couple of LNER 12 tons vans of my own before venturing onto the S7 kits) I am confident that I can do the same on the van kit.
I have to admit, I wouldn't use Slaters kits now (unless there was something specific I wanted), as the Parkside kits are so easy to spring..
If I've got my dates right then I think that it is a meeting at Sudbury this Sunday?
Don't think that I'll be able to make it so if anyone going could pass my apologies and regards on to Peter then it would be much appreciated
Will do Chris.
A little up date on Love Lane, at the monthly meet on last Sunday, wiring has begun on the underside of the base boards.
The layout is currently covered in tools and materials as these shots show. The giant house in the back ground is not part of the layout.
Thanks for posting some pictures Col, looks like a real hive of activity there which is all good
I'm not sure but I think the houses are a bit over scale for S7?
Tim, two John's and others have been attending on Wednesdays are the Guy's who have got the ball rolling with this.
I did discuss the station buildings with Peter as we are trying to sort out how best to use the materials that Peter Cavalier had accumulated.
I think the track work has been finalized now, so I will draw a "Rice" style plan soon and post on here.
Any input and idea's from those afar is welcome of coarse.
