(F) Estate Speeder -- O9

Postby Simon Andrews » Wed Feb 20, 2008 3:10 pm

I have always found speeders and home built I/C locos very intresting and for a long time had wanted a Simplex (seem compulsory for 15" estate railways) and a speeder or two.

At Expo 2007 I picked up a Smallbrook Studios MOW speeder designed for 16.5mm narrow gauge, I have mounted mine on an Arnold N gauge Kof shunter. The only work to the loco body is to remove the buffers. I have added some plasticard frames and just need to add handrails, controls and some fake axle boxes.

Will keep you updated.

The plate layer at Black Hall Sidings has been casting an envious eye over his Lordship's new toy. He wonders why he has to walk between the sidings and the estate yard, especially as his Lordship has just purchased a new four wheel open for the entertainment of family and guests!

These are the latest items of stock for Black Hall. In addition to the modified Smallbrook speeder I have also shortened the Avalon 4w open coach to fit the short W/B chassis to cope with the curve on the layout.
