G'day Gents

As I said in a earlier post, I was tinkering with a Lima J50, after a bit more tinkering, I have a chassis that is worthy of a showing on this august site. There's still a way to go, but I'm getting there. The chassis has been stripped of it's motor, and had a new hole cut in the chassis to accommodate a cheap Mitsumi can motor (5 for a couple of quid), 20mm Romford wheels(.6mm undersize) Comet scale con rod fitted, so the wheelbase is spot on, once I get this running, a J6 body and tender will be built for it.

G'day Gents

I for one agree with your sentiments, let J6's rule the world, but first onto a G1, the motor has been 'glued' on the chassis with silicone, and easy to place in the right spot, a bogie has been made out of brass, all I have to do now is put it all together, the chassis runs well.

Looking good. Silicone is far easier to use than silicon.....

The G1 looks the dogs wotsits Mana! However, I have to agree with Graeme's statement above! :roll: :lol:

I now have a running O1, and with a coat of paint and some numbers (to high) I give you something, that probably never ran on the Edgware branch, but what the hell, rule one applies :lol: there's still a way to go, steps, safety valves etc, but they'll get added soon.

Long time no post, but I haven't let the grass. etc. been renumbering some coaches, and generally mucking about with a few things going through my mind. One of them is this, a J57, I've lowered the cab roof, chimney and dome, a 'western' ? type safety valve, (the chimney won't be staying). for the chassis, well that's another thing, first I'll have to acquire some 16mm wheels, then I might have a go at a scratchbuilt chassis, but for the moment.......... rule one !!

Atso, I love J3's, there all different.

After a busy couple of weeks, laying pavors and painting a dentist's, I've been building a couple (3) GN tenders, the first one came off of the J1, didn't look right on the tender drive, I'll build another one, I've had to build a chassis, didn't take to long, the second was a scratch built for one of the J3's and the last one (sorry no pic.) for the O1.

Have almost finished one of the J3's, and fitted the correct tender, I built a Ivatt tender and it should have been a Stirling tender, so I did a swap, don't worry, I'll find a use for the Ivatt tender, J6 maybe.

Started another loco, (what's new) this time a .....well you guess.

Blimey Manna what a collection of locos you are building up, very nice.

Is it not time you tried some proper engines from Darlington :) .
