The models train passion thus turned to getting and fixing old models and purchasing some new ones.
The following are the book shelves in front of my desk where the locos shown require spares such as Chassis and odd connections, parts etc so are there to remind me. I check various web sites and other collectors on the web and am building up a number of contacts for spare parts.
An old Liliput shunter (very hard to get parts for - has no motor and no valve gear on the other side and ...
The bachmann Class 4 shunter is on a bachmann chassis but not the right one. Part of the fun for me is looking for a chassis for the body and a body for the chassis
A Bachmann Collett ?? (GWR ??) 0-6-0 in need of a chassis and the tender is a BR green (??)
The patriot just needs alast few bits which I am getting from Bachmann direct. This will then be a pristine loco ready for my (phantom) layout
These are some of the drawers where locos and various parts reside while they are being fixed or part are being sought.
The old hornby princess class is ready to roll with just a few more repairs (a new motor was added and rewiring etc). It still eeds the smoke generator fixed (just a heating element and some solder) . The joueff (??) SNCF loco has the pantograph repaired and runs very well. It has the european style connectors so I also have a nnumber of carriages
This drawer has ones in need of major work or requiring repairs to body.
I have a few other models and maybe as I progress I can post them on this site.
On with the playing
