    As in different engines would have different types of rivets, or the same engine would have different types?

    Back to Work I've had quite a long break from modelling locomotives (nearly 2 years!) Mainly to focus on ships. I tend to lean one way or another, but never both at once. Now with a sufficient battlefleet to protect against. ..er....cheeky buggers....it's time to get back into the Kettles of CIE. Quite some time ago I purchased an N15 class locomotive with the intention of converting to 402 Being myself, I didn't start taking photos till I had most of the job done. Chassis were terrible on her, so something must be done about that. Nonetheless, off came the body One sees the obvious differences between the locomotives. First tackled was the Firebox. Round on the N15, it was a Belpaire type on the 400s. A piece of brass, bent to shape, along with some glue and filler was used. The Firebox was filed slightly, to make the corners more rounded. Splashers were stolen off some poor old airfix kit, filed down, and fitted Then it was off to the paint shop, for a lick of green. Looking somewhat like a crazy idea Bullied would have, 402 will have to make do with the tender chassis she's lying on for now😋

    Of course we have Irish Pictorial Weekly now While we don't have the Minister for Hardship, it's still pretty funny "Some towns could do with a bit of a bombin'. Mullingar"

    Or the smoke generator when the Crossley engine sound is engaged. If it doesn't cause you to hallucinate it isn't authentic
