Pattern for a lco

New Hornby Bagnall. This might be a good candidate for a Gn15 bash. New cab, no buffers and a multi height coupling block. Bit big for 4 mm scale.

My Mistake

Oh ye of little faith. We all make mistakes. The most experienced of us (and I don't include myself) make mistakes. We learn from them. That's what makes us good at what we do.I've been trying for years to make the perfect model. I'll be trying for a few years yet. Don't give up. We are here to help...

Sylvasprings No 2 Loco

At a guess,I'd say the wheelbase of No2 is about 3 feet. Therefore, if 45mm is 18", the wheelbase would come out at 90mm, or 3.5 " Divide that by 3 and you would have a scale of just over 1" per foot. 1.16 or there abouts. You would have a model approx 9" long!

Never seen this Picture before

Interesting wee beastie. Shouldn't be too difficult to size it. Yatton Engineering do a 7/8th scale kit of the Jesty in both it's forms and it would make an interesting companion for it. I've taken the liberty of sending a copy to them, with the Gnatterbox as the source.

Gnotable anniversary

Puresprings is the layout that hooked me on Gn15. Great stuff. I found the little Jesty a lovely little loco and I built one in 16mm. Wasn't a scale model though. I have now put a foot in the 7/8 camp and have a Jesty on order for that. I am building track to 32mm which is,of course, 18" gauge.

Outside frames

One way to make it look different is to remove alternate spokes from the wheels,then "beef" up the remainder with small pieces of plastic card to make them thicker. Fiddly. Another possibility is to swap the axles for extended Romfords, the fit a dummy o/s frame to it. Have fun.

Matthews Corner

This layout is most definitely a classic. It's also given me an idea. I Gnow work mostly in 16 mm scale and, as usual, track is the problem. Code 200 Forth Bridge off cuts don't cut it for me, so I'm going to try Chris's idea with Code 124 track. Here goes. By the way, been reading the Railway Muddl...
