Re: Stour Valley Dream - progress on P4 layout

I finally managed to get my Crownline J20 kit built. I think it is fair to describe the kit as 'old school', lots of bits designed around OO tolerances. I'm very pleased with how well the paint has managed to hide a multitude of sins in terms of 'cut and shut' work on the footplate and where I gave ...

Re: Stour Valley Dream - progress on P4 layout

It's been a few months since I posted an update on my model of Clare. IMG_8467a.jpg The bulk of the work has been in the area around the cattle dock and down towards the goods yard.

Re: Turnout construction - Question here please.

I don't think the construction is any more complicated in P4 compared to EM, but because the tolerances are a bit tighter you just need to be a bit more careful how things are done. Terry Bendall I'd completely agree with Terry, I've built both EM and P4 trackwork and it is next to identical, you j...

Re: Kernow Beattie Well Tank to P4?

There is a video on Youtube which shows the current EFE release. To say it is less than complimentary would be a bit of an understatement.

How many of the things he thought were an issue would be a problem for someone who is going to convert it to P4 I'm not sure.

I've just watched the excellent video, I just wondered what was done/how the grain tanks were converted to P4? Did you do anything complicated with springing or chicken out like I did and just swap the wheel sets?

After all the intellectual content from Virtual Scaleforum trust me to bring the tone down.... This wagon in the yard at Clare in the 1960s appears to be loaded with a round tank. septic-tank.jpg I have seen a similar loads in photographs of Sudbury goods yard though that load appears to be more lik...

thanks for the feedback. I hadn't realised that the fitted wagons would just run as unfitted. I'm now going to display my complete ignorance of exactly how vacuum brakes work.

Re: What 5-plank wagon is this and what livery should it be?

And the other good thing about having a library is discovering what looks to me like just my wagon, in colour, on the front of Martyn Welch's seminal work 'The art of weathering'. At least by the time I've fixed the brakes and added the tie-rod.

I've been trying to start renovating some of my wagons which haven't really had a proper look at in the last 15 years. I've learnt a lot over that time and some of my attempts from back then look, well frankly, a bit embarrassing. I'd like to try and get these wagons into a livery suitable for ~1955...

Re: How tall should cattle dock fencing be?

I put a coat of paint on the fencing and made a little water trough for the corner.

As I am modelling the dock in a disused state I need to add few weeds growing through the concrete.
