    Richard Harper

    Issue 253 (2017)



    Shortly after featuring Richard Harper's much-admired model of Sidmouth station in MRJ 243, he mentioned that he was starting to build another branch engine. Here he describes how, using the popular Branchlines chassis designed for the motorisation of the Airfix/Dapol 2-6-0 standard class mixed traffic engine, he has adapted it to suit 82019, which he chose to marry to a DJH body kit. His account details his approach to the building of a P4 chassis, and as such, is a useful guide to the building of a reliable working chassis.
