OTHER MODELLING WORK: N Gauge Loco Gallery


Page  SR  LMS  

 

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.

 

 

LMS 4-6-2T Princess of Wales No 6975
This is a Langley Models white metal kit on a Poole-era Graham Farish chassis, unidentified but a 4-6-0 type with added pony truck at the rear. The loco was purchased complete, with all-black livery and straw yellow lettering, but it still needed vacuum pipes, real coal, lamps, and the top half of a driver to squeeze between the cab door and the visible motor. Work began with this workbench entry.

LMS BoBo Ivatt 3MT/Type 1 Diesel Locomotive No 800
Designed by the LMS but put into service in 1950 under British Railways ownership, this prototype diesel was No 10800. It never actually appeared in LMS livery and lettering as the No 800 shown here, so it's a bit of a 'what if' version of the loco. It's a Parkwood Models resin body shell (see Parkwood Models Diesel 10800 Kit), with brass rod used for all the handrails and pipes. The chassis is a Poole-era Graham Farish Class 20 chassis with fixed split gears (see Replacing Split Gears on a Farish Class 20). The paintwork is a little too glossy, and needs dulling down with a coat of satin varnish.
