Hi Pete,

cheers

Very nice kits Pete, I'm jealous...! :twitch:

Recently I came across a site that sell O gauge models at reasonable prices, so I bookmarked the page, but cannot access it now. Built and painted vent vans for £20 - £25.00 each, open wagons from £15.00 ! They had a range of Parkside Dundas, Slaters, etc etc...
The site is wagonandcarriage.co.uk , but all I get now is a message : 'The website can not be found'. :x:

Cheers, Gary.

Hi guys I will be removing all the decals and re-painting it as BR W region new transfers and then heavily distress the whole wagon before weathering it, maybe as internal use only, not sure yet.

I know what you mean Gary, it is bl@@dy infuriating, by the way, loved the videos, lots of handy ideas mate :thumbsup:.

Cheers, Pete.

I'll just keep watching out for that elusive O gauge bargain...! :whatever:
Thanks for your nice comments regarding weathering. :thumbsup:

Cheers, Gary.

Great start to your model railway like the sector head shunt with the release down the back of the layout gives plenty of extra storage area.

I admire your buildings. A Very industrial works look comming through :thumbs:
Buildings are one area I don't enjoy doing in the scenic's for some reason

Any chance of some photos of the locos on the layout?

Hi Chris, at the moment I only have two locos for Wheeldon that are usable, an 040 Hudswell Clarke.




I also have a Lima 040 diesel shunter that I have Anglisized and repainted, I still want to do some more detailing to yet and fit a dcc chip.




I also have an Andrew Barclay 040 shunter that I am scratch building, still got quite a way to go with that yet.


I also have a kit for an 040 Peckett to build and a part built 03 diesel shunter to finish when funds allow.

Cheers, Pete.

Hi thanks for the photos they look great
Really like the Hudswell Clark and your scratch build loco is comming on nicely will be a great addition for shunting :thumbs:

I see the coupling bar on the Diesel are you using sprat and winkel.
I use those on my BR rolling stock and so does my dad on his O scale layout, I find they are really quite effective with the magnets and the delay action.
A lot easier than the scale Knuckle coupler's I use on the Ozzy stock

Sorry for the delay in my reply Chris, yes I am going for Spratt and Winkle couplings mainly because I have a load of them from an abandoned project from years ago, originally it was to be 3 link but I rebuilt the scenics and afterwards realised I could no longer reach over the buildings to uncouple, I have converted a couple of wagons that took me ages but I will speed up as I get better at them :whatever:.

Cheers, Pete.

Hi guys, for Sprat & Winkle's what would I need to control them. Only having 2 wagons - both with 3 links fitted, and a loco with a cow catcher at each end, now is the time for me to decide which way to go.

Hi Paul, the Spratt and Winkles use magnets under the rail head, they are a little like tension locks but upside down, I have fitted mine with chain links in iron and they are drawn to the magnets which pull down the coupling hooks, you back off the wagons a fraction the couplings uncouple, by pushing forward again you have delayed uncoupling, so one magnet can work on a fan of sidings, I will put some pics up to show what I mean,




the forward facing curved hook jobby on top of the coupling go,s under the bar on the next wagon and prevents the wagons recoupling, you can then push the wagon to where it needs to go then just back off jobs a guddun.

Hope this helps, cheers, Pete.
