OTHER MODELLING WORK: N Gauge Loco Gallery

Presenting a gallery of detailed locomotives to run on 'Bournemouth West for the S&DJR', usually after they've gone through the Grouping Workbench phase of having extra bits and pieces added, or have had paint jobs and lining.

 

 

SR 4-6-0 Urie Class N15 No E741 'Joyous Gard'
Still carrying its eight-wheel bogie tender. A BH Enterprises white metal kit on a Poole-era Graham Farish chassis (with a brass central cog), bought fully made up, painted and lined, but still needing vacuum pipes, a new cab fall plate, a running number on the back of the tender, 'E' classifications above the numbers on the side of the tender, and crew, plus some scratches and scrapes to be painted over. Work began with this workbench entry. [Photographed on Bridgebury Gate - see external links.]

SR 4-6-0 Urie Class N15 No E743 'Lyonesse'
Fitted with an eight-wheel bogie tender, this is another BH Enterprises white metal kit on a Poole-era Graham Farish chassis (with a brass central cog), bought fully made up, but painted in BR Brunswick Green. A full repaint and lining was carried out by Ozymandius of the N Gauge Forum, who also added the front vacuum pipe, and then a cab fall plate was added along with front buffer hook and chains, a fresh coal load to show a half-empty tender, red cab side plaques, and crew and tools. The wheel centres were painted in Maunsell Green and name plates were added. Work began with this workbench entry. [Photographed on Bridgebury Gate - see external links.]

SR 2-6-0 Maunsell Class N No A868
This is a temporary visitor to the SR Western Section from Ashford - as a new Graham Farish model it was already fully detailed apart from some real coal being added to the tender, but it still needs a crew. [Photographed on Bridgebury Gate - see external links.]

SR 4-4-0 Drummond Class T9 No E304
Union Mills. Fitted with a six-wheel tender for service in the Eastern Division, but temporarily seconded back to the Bournemouth area. Maunsell Green paintwork corrected and then fully lined by Ozymandius of the N Gauge Forum. Further detailing added, including real coal and crew, front and rear buffer beam hooks, lamp irons, and vacuum pipes. Work began with this workbench entry.

SR 0-6-0 Drummond Class 700 No 368
Union Mills. Plain black livery, one of the early ones to be detailed by me with buffer beam hooks and chains, vacuum pipes, lamp irons, copper pipes, real coal, crew and tools. It could do with being lined green and having an 'E' added above its number. Work began with this workbench entry. [Photographed on Bridgebury Gate - see external links.]

SR 0-4-4T Drummond Class M7 No 247
Dapol. Weak enough to be troubled by skin on a rice pudding, so extra leaded weights were added underneath the chassis. The numbering was changed from 37 to 49 to 247, on the sides, rear, and front buffer beam. Real coal was added to the bunker, tools and spare coal on top of the side tanks, and a good deal of everyday grubbiness was added around the running plate and tank tops, along with a driver in the cab. Work began with this workbench entry. [Photographed on Bridgebury Gate - see external links.]

SR 0-6-0 ex-LB&SCR Class A1X 'Terrier' No 735
Dapol. The LSWR bought two Terriers from the LB&SCR, and this one, No 735, lasted until 1930 (mostly in storage). My story is that it has been pulled out of storage for one last test in service before being sold off. Lettering removed from side tanks and new lettering printed on a laserjet. The Westinghouse gear was removed along with the bunker rails and front steps. Sanding boxes from N Brass loco were added over the splashers with hand-painted lining finishing them off, a new N Brass Loco chimney replaced the Dapol plastic one, and mechanical pull-and-push cable equipment was added to the cab roof. Given its long-term storage, quite a few layers of grimy grey were washed over the body. [Photographed on Bridgebury Gate - see external links.]
