  6. GSR Class 551 / J26 ECMbuild in 7mm

    Sorry David! I fustered over this question for a number of days! eventually I decided to stick with standard Gauge O, the reasoning is that all my other Gauge O stuff is standard and all the track I've bought for the garden is standard...... I'm not eliminating broad gauge- I have plans for a display shunting layout and that will be 'The Right Gauge' Eoin

    Hi Rich Thanks The jigs are home spun- the soldering clamp unit is a new one in hardwood, the old mdf one started to bloat with the flux getting into the mdf!!. The rolling road was built at the time of the Scot chassis build. I reckon spending the time to jig something is time well spent if the work can be put together accurately, and saves time in avoiding undoing or tidying up a mess if things go wrong without jigging Eoin

    Hi David Great photo for reference What is the tube beside the cab door for? I see it on some of the photos of this and other class... Eoin
  9. GSR Class 551 / J26 ECMbuild in 7mm

    Next was to solder in the axle bushes and do a test fit of the Slater axles n wheels Then the drive rods n crank pin bushes to see if everything lines up, rolls across the bench beautifully Gearbox all soldered up Test fitted the motor and gearbox to chassis to work out spacers required to keep the wheel gear in line with the pinion gear on the motor Spacer arrangement and a little flat milled on the axle for the grub screw to seat on OOOH nice little thing First run of motor and gearbox, a bit noisy at first, with slight adjustment of the gears it runs smooth Drive rods back on, bolt it up and oil it and on to the rolling road Opening the regulator It runs beautifully and no adjustment needed- amazing Eoin

    Hi George The flats look great, I'd say a few steel washers stuck inside the containers would keep them wheels on the track? Great looking train when its all together- with the beer at the end, lovely The buses are cool to Eoin
