My first 'G' loco

Postby Si » Thu Oct 11, 2012 2:13 pm

The ultimate intention is to have a layout that combines 15" and 2' lines, with the 15" being the 'shed line' and the 2' the 'main line'.

So have been trying to build some 1/22ish scale stock. Here's my first loco, based on an Andel chassis with a scratch built body...

Afraid the light was rubbish today so had to use a flash which made the colours go all funny, but you get the gist of it...

Very nice Si,

I like the dirty nature of the loco...something for it to tug around next? :roll:

Sure looks like the ones Google and You Tube searches bring up.
Rain gutter is nice touch.

Ah well, as my driver is becoming somewhat thin on top I thought that he'd appreciate it :D

Hi Si,

I’m sorry I seem to have missed this thread before. That is a very nice little critter you have built. 8)

I think the faded paintwork looks rather good.
