October 2020 Photo Meeting

Well, Covid19 has bitten us back, so we have reverted to a “photo meeting” this month. Here are a few of the contributions received. (Click on photos to enlarge)

On30 caboose work in progress by Richard, inspired by West Side Lumbers No.3 caboose. Original model has been shortened and narrowed, along with extra windows cut-in, handrails and steps added.
009 scale Parkside Dundas Hunslet from a selection of bits acquired cheaply. Some parts had to be made as they were missing, and the tender has been modified for water and coal.
This is the fourth O9 tractor loco by Chris. This one uses a 1934 Lanz 15/30 and is modelled with open cab. Base and cab etc. made from plasticard on a Kato tram chassis
The complete fleet of tractor locos.
Stuart has been doing some work on his 5″ gauge American 0-4-0. Including painting parts black, some re-plumbing and improving the controls.
Stuart’s 7.25″ gauge Heywood-inspired “top wagon” now has handles and has been moved to the Top Field Railway at Whitwell & Reepham.
Geoff is installing a bridge to take his O gauge (standard gauge) line over the narrow gauge.
Posed for a photo on New Walmington Pier are the whole fleet. Works Car No.3 (a Japanese model), Southend Pier Toastrack No.2 (Shapeways body on a Kato 103 chassis) and Volks Electric railway ex-Southend Pier No.1 (also a Shapeways body on Kato 103).
