No, remember Loctites, either retainer or nut locker, aren't glues as such and work by expanding in a joint around a shaft as they go off and locking it solid mechanically. So the thread may expand a bit and go harder, but it will still unwind from the joint without difficulty.

Errr no, cos loctite is not a glue, it's a retainer. Meaning that it hardens in a/ the presence of steel and b/ in the absence of oxygen.

Made the springs for the pony trucks today, out of one piece of wire.

Getting ready for Scaleforum, found the brushes in the motor on the railcar are a bit short. Overheating and smoke coming out of the motor.

My models are high mileage, I suppose it's inevitable. However, doesn't give me much time to sort out.

Meanwhile I have stretched the springs - which were looking a bit short. Probably they are overheated. Looked in scrap box, no luck there. There was another 12:20, but that had no brush gear, swapped with the dud ones, it worked, so I assume - as I don't remember, I've had this problem before.

Going with the Burnham crowd to Scaleforum.

Tuning the Ivatt tankie, plus built some leads so we can have some spare controllers.

Finally running satisfactorily, found the balance weight was being rubbed by the coupling rod.

On with the brake gear, utilising these frame spacer jigs.

According to "Shed by Shed 6:Western", John, it was at Templecombe, as you state 7/53 to 1/59, Bristol Bath Road 1/59 to 8/60, Bristol Barrow Road 8/60 to 12/63, Barnstaple 12/63 to 11/64, Exmouth Junction 11/64 to 5/65, then Templecombe again 5/65 to 3/66 [presumably S&D closure; another source states loco withdrawn 3/66].

Noel, 'Shed by Shed' isn't in my library, so the additional allocations you cite help to fill out the picture – thanks for these. I am working from hand written tables compiled many years ago by an author I am ashamed to say I cannot immediately identify. His focus was on the S&D and the tables concentrate on the shed from which engine migrated to the Dorset and the shed to which it was despatched away from the line, disregarding any other allocations.

One interesting note with regard to 41249 appears from the tables I hold: from 2 to 31 January 1966 the engine is shown as having been in store. Evidently she was treated as surplus to requirements for the purposes of the emergency service that operated from 3 January 1966 and her revival at the end of January suggests that she took the place of a casualty previously employed on that service.

My tables confirm 41249's withdrawal on 6 March 1966, with no note of her being used for shunting at Bath thereafter, so I assume that she duly took her place in the line at Pylle Hill for her final trip.

I doubt there will ever be a definitive list of all allocations. One other source is the BRDatabase at http://www.brdatabase.info/index.php.

The author admits it is still a work in progress, but is trying to cross reference details to improve the accuracy, so currently shows 2 sets of data. The search facilities are quite comprehensive, including loco number, shed snapshot, shed chronological changes, builders and scrap yards.

The page for 41249 is here http://www.brdatabase.info/locoqry.php?action=locodata&type=S&id=114639&loco=41249
