A quick deviation:

The gear wheel on the GER Little Sharpie I had just built decided it no longer required to be attached to the axle. It had been an interference fit attached with Loctite but light oiling had affected the fit and it no longer gripped the axle so I decided to solder a boss to the gear so it could be locked in place with a grub screw.

1. I needed a boss, the gear was very small and as I didn't have anything to substitute it I separated one from a spare gear I had using a mini drill and a knife blade as a parting tool.

Image

2. Here is the shortened boss on the axle and the gear wheel ready to fit:

3. Boss and gear prior to soldering:

4. The boss soldered on:

5. Cleaned up and ready to go:

6. Fitted in the chassis:

Thought Id share a couple of wagons i threw together a little while ago, The first uses a Parkside LNER Conflat S and DX container kit as a basis, all of the brake gear has been replaced with detailing parts from Mainly Trains.

Once you get the inner ends to fit the McGowan brake van kit works quite nicely, doesn't it? Although did you also find that one of the w irons is taller than the other(s)?
Bachmann A2 to A2/3: from my thread in Model Railways page 56 to 83, also

Hornby A3 to A1/1 Great Northern: from page 84, in resin from page 108.


Apologies for so many missing images - see page 1 for reasons & possible solution.

Mine seems to sit level so I am assuming all is ok with the w-irons.

Managed to find a pair of lamp housings that will work as well, as they don't appear to be supplied.

Bit more work done on the GNR brake van, decided on a brass roof rather than the recommended plastic and used PC models 12" buffer heads.

I have been updating my pages here as I was using imageshack meaning the pictures up and vanished.

You should be able to see everything as I bring them all back.
