Cavan & Leitrim 4-4-0 loco 7mm plans

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Afternoon lads.....only just joined here, and apologies if I ask what's already been asked a thousand times before, or put it in the wrong place!

Anyway, I'm trying to find some plans or diagrams to build a C&L 4-4-0 ( a Robt Stephenson co engine, one of 8 ordered by C&L) I'm looking at doing it in 7mm scale, seeing as I've got to scratch build it anyway!    I've got a very simple basic drawing by J Emslie from a 50s mag, but was wondering if anyone had anything a bit more detailed / dimensioned ?

Has anyone else here built one in the past ? I'd be very interested to see what others have done and how they went about it.....

Hello! Sorry can’t help on this one, although others here will know. I’ve had a look at the Alphagraphix catalogue, which includes a number of coloured card kits which make very useful drawings for scratchbuilders. Unfortunately he only has a Schull and Skibbereen steam loco available - with lots of  railcars though from Clare and Donegal.

Funny you mention Alphagraphix, as I've just posted another question about their card building kits, I've ordered a Ballyconnell station !... I ordered this from ebay rather than their catalogue, (which I don't have) as I understand it they do a few Irish wagon kits but in card ! As you say handy to use as templates I suppose, doubtless some have made decent models out of them..there's some clever fellas out there.!!

Hi PP

The 7mm Narrow Gauge Association Book No. 6 has Mr Emslie's- side elevation, back n front drawings (no plan) in 7mm scale, there are axle ctr dimensions given only- but the drawings could be scaled!

Diarmuid Byrne of Wierpark Books had a copy of this booklet at the last Stillorgan Show, you can catch him in Fairyhouse Market tomorrow, and he's on facebook......

Cheers Eoin,  thanks for the heads up...

I've in fact (kind of ) already ordered that book from the 7mm nga , tho I'm still awaitn' them to get back to me to confirm, I believe it contains a bit of other nice Irish stuff too, they seem to have a bit of a funny system when it comes to simply purchasing a book !!

Have both books - more accurately A4 notes and drawings in a binder - and there are indeed lots of Irish NG drawings, including several railcars too. Well worth having.

I've finally had a message back from 7mm NGA and paid for it, so hopefully should be on it's way. !
