Following Ramma Wood's first outing to Pewsey I have been working on some extra motive power. First up is a steeple cab loco inspired by the OKJ's loco No. 5.
Next up a small I/C loco that while freelance is dimensionally the same as a 7mm scale model of Redgauntlet.
At Pewsey I had problems with the loco sticking on the approach to one of the points. This may have been due to a change in gauge due to heat / humidity or due to the robust nature of the Bachmann Plymouth chassis and it's use of split axles in muffs which may have changed gauge due to rough handling.
Following Pewsey I spent a few hours adjusting the back to back measurements of the Bachmann wheel sets, but also tried other mechanisms with shorter wheel bases these included the Minitrains Gieminder chassis which worked like a dream and due to it's size allowed the building of a truly scale sized scooter.
Next on the agenda is some additional rolling stock.
