Nice job Pedro. I'm really going to have to to get one now. I guess I'll just pretend it lasted till BR days


oh and its a W1, an M-1 was a massive coal burning steam turbine electric made by Baldwin for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in 1948. Just a little trivia.

The M1 is a ring road in Sydney.

Peter, The work looks bloody exceptional. I'll have to try my hand at a couple of coaches and see what happens. Just got my GWR 61XX from Southeastern Finecast so that's my next project. Perhaps a I'll try SW DIgital GWR decoder in it as well.

I look forward to seeing how these build up as I admire your coach building skills.

Peter, Lovely work. That Mk1BG is it a Comet kit? I've been thinking of giving the Comet kits a go after aI run out of DJH locos to build.

I wish I felt the same but I love building locos so I'll just have to wear the cost. Coaches are something I'll have to have a go at unless you count Kitmaster as coach kit.

Also concidering the latest markits price increase you have to bear in mind that it will cost well over £50 just for the wheels. its crazy. I do have 1 loco on the drawing board but generally i am going to stick to the coaches for the time being.

Coaches look good but whats the SP GS-5 lurking in the background for. Is it the Bachmann one? I just sold a Sunset brass one a couple of weeks ago.

here is the picture of the green GNR coaches!! unfortunatly the colour dosent show up very well but they were LIME green!!



The midland coaches are now nearly finished. the roofs have been nade and painted. i used 247developements whitemetal lamp tops and torpedo vents because i wasnt happy with the plastic ones from ratio.



I now have the parts for the articulation system for the quad art and i got the first 2 parts on their bogies last night. i need to get some more press studs as i accidently soldered 2 of them on upside down! the effect of the MJT articulastion system is very good i think.



I now have london tilbury and southend coaches to build.

Peter, I did have a Bachmann GS-5 a few years ago. At that time it wasn't the chassis so much as the wheels that gave problems. I ended up getting a Bowser replacement chassis and wheels and I fitted a Sagami can motor. I still have a couple of daylight coaches that I started to paint and maybe when Bachmann bring out their Spectrum quality model of the GS I 'll buy another. I had 4 Bachmann N&W "J" class with two complete Rivarossi train sets to make a pair of excellent trains. I actually prefer the Bachmann model to the Broadway limited model, terrible sound system inthe BLI and the colours aren't right. You should try the new Bachmann sound equipped "J". With the Tsnumai sound decoder it's a winner.

Yep its the bachmann one. complete with smoke! alot of people complain about the chassis on it (its a split froam) but mine is a fantastic runner. I would love a norfolk and western J class to park along side!

the loco to the right is a chinese SS1 made by a new company called hai dar. its a very good runner but suffers a little from bachmann stiction syndrome!

Peter, That's a bloody nice quartering tool. Damn sight better looking piece of kit than that old thing I use from NWSL. Do you have a web link to the manufaturer or whom ever resells them.
