|CR Pug on Carlisle & District 0 Gauge Guild layout|
|Unfinished but running well...LNER J36|
Jeff Davidson's J36 is modelled as it would appear in its later days and will eventually be turned out in BR colours in well weathered condition. Here, with patched tender side she pushes a train of coal wagons through the scenic section of the Carlisle group's layout
|Entries in the the April Modelling Competition.|
The annual April CD0GG Modelling Competition was won on a vote by David Gibson's signal boxes and station buildings, which are in situ on the layout and form a realistic backdrop to the pictures I took today.
|HR d.39 Brake Van brings up the tail.|
A little light weathering at the last minute added a realistic touch to my d.39 van. Compared to the resin-cast wagons of the "Furness Wagon Works" train she's a heavyweight, weighing in at over 400g which I think adds to the realistic way she runs.
|Bob Goodyear's late C19 Scottish Brake Van.|
Bob shares my taste for early and rather obscure railway subjects and has indulged himself by adding a great deal of detail to the fairly basic set of etches which he used as his starting point for this model.
|Pete's HR d.39 Brake Van at CD0GG today|
Towards the end of the CD0GG meeting my d.39 had her first taste of work at the tail of the "Furness" train.
There are new projects in the pipeline back in the studio, there's a new loco under construction and several more engines taking their turn in the paint-shop, all of which activity I'll feature on the Blog soon.
