SR Wagon kit with 2FS chassis.

Good Evening guys, well what have I been upto recently. Well I have started in 2mm finescale and loving the challenge and the skills I am learning too. I have built a test track and a point within that with good success.

On to the next project and below is a few photos of what I have been upto. I have built a SR 12ton box van. The kit is an 'N' Gauge kit and I have built the chassis from the 2mm and with great success below are a few photos of construction and the finished article.





Well there we go a finished wagon with transfers and a lick of paint I have another one to do and that one will be unfitted so look out for some more photos. 

Thanks

Couplings?

I model British n gauge and have always disliked the standard couplings, so I have decided to use DG couplings from model signal engernering. They were a little tricky at first but after about 20 or so I got the hang of making them.

I fitted them to a loco and some of my wagons and installed electromagnets on my layout Halflat and hey presto we have got hands free uncoupling which is fantastic.

Well I shall have to post some photos txt is getting a little boring now.

Well I guess it's time to do the rest of my stock especially my new class 03 shunted from Graham Farish, what a smart model it is too.

Well talk to you all soon.

Hello

Well the nights are drawing in and it is that time of year our hobby gets a lot of our attention and all the exhibitions are well and truly underway. This is no exception for the club and its members.

We have already started to help with the setup of the Exhibition which is in February at the racecourse again. The club and its members have started on a project converting a layout from stabling yard to a busy terminus, which will be complete for next year to show at the sheffield show in October.

I have been busy over the last few months constructing my boards and laying the track for my next layout. (more details will be posted)

Another member has had his layout invited to Derby next year, and some of the members are helping him get it ready in time.

Well If you find yourself with some spare time and want to come down and help feel free to do so. We still meet on a Tuesday evening from 7pm till around 9.30pm (even later some times).

Please either call John Medley our club secretary or email myself either for further details or to arrange to come and join us one evening.

Thanks
