Richie I am watching this one closely and wondering what sort of motive power may unfold......!
May I ask what is the overall measurement of the W irons and the etched floor please as I am tempted to try my hand at building a wagon body.
Not to sound like a buffer anorak but why don’t you sweat some solder onto the buffer heads to make them look like steel before you glue them in?
We should have a photo at least.
It certainly is. I have been dabbling a bit with 2mm Finescale too - not one to limit myself to just one thing! Probably why I never seem to finish things, but there is a big difference in the look of things with handbuilt track.It's so rewarding building your own track, in any scale. In my teens myself and a friend did psuedo P4. It's certainly robust.
Thanks Julian,Looking good Richie.....wish my "old fence posts" looked that good!
The thing with S Scale is you can recycle. If you are looking at pre grouping light rail you may get away with N gauge code 80 rail for a finer appearance. This can be picked up cheaply.
It is very nice to see S Scale activity in this area of Society News.....please keep it coming.
Hi Adam,Hello Richie,
The Barclay drawings are held at Glasgow University - Records of Andrew Barclay Sons & Co Ltd, locomotive manufacturers and engineers, Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire, Scotland - Archives Hub - if you know what you're after (i.e., by works number of a particular engine or one that's similar to the sort of thing you want), they may well be able to help.
