  1. UTA 2-6-0 Ex-NCC 'Earl of Ulster'

    I have to say this thing of making a model loco look so perfectly like, or as near like a prototype as possible leaves me asking why ! This is supposed to be a hobby !!! Of course there are people on here who wouldn't entertain anything else, & the very best of luck to each & every one of them, & if any of them decide to dismantle a loco & bash it, bend it into what they decide is more to their train ( no pun intended ) of thought & style, then so be it. To me if I can lay my paws on something that to my Specsaver eyes, looks a bit like what I have in mind & with a bit of graft, tweaking or whatever, I'll be happy to run this loco on my layout & as said before, if it passes the 2 foot rule then it'll do for me, I actually have 2 LMS 0-6-0's that I intend to get bashed, bent into shape....but this will not be done by me, I hope it'll be done by someone who has the skills, I know my limits.. .. I'm not looking to have a model bashed or styled into something looking so perfectly similar or identical to a prototype that'll be sitting in a glass case up on a shelf, I enjoy playing trains, each to his own.......just saying.

    Hi Noel, only seeing this now, for what's it's worth, if it's possible, if the doors open you might be able to put something inside to render some weight which might help in weighing the wagon for movement ,, btb
