Lockdown wagon works

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Well a few days off work has seen some leaps and bounds on the box of wagons:

Ammonia tanks got bogies and ride height adjusted, lots more too do ,

SSM flat soldered up and gone green for barrier 

Resin bogie cement of ebay with  Stenson models air tank , A1 etched walkway from TTA detail kit, plus decking plate, new top hatches from Wizzard models . Lanarkshire models drawhook .

Sperry container from 3D print , body join could be better - just need to buy in another 47foot flat from Shapeways .

Airfix and SSM marriage to get fuel tanks - soldering on the gussets for five wagons was a days fun!

Looking good Whizz, a production line! I find its quite hard to stay interested when building on production line status but when you finish wow! instant freight train!    :trains:

Mike true! But once in the swing of things economy  of scale drops into place - soldering brake wheels becomes automatic and doing a few more allows choice of the best.  Just been folding the container cleats on a second SSM 42foot flat but now cross eyed !  Added brake wheels to the two tara mine ex shale wagons - will give a variation in the IRM rake - found a pic of a six wagon move - which matches my fleet size.  Daft fact of he day Flikr has 18000 Irish rail pictures loaded. - one is a broad side of the wagon I was after .. good job the search function is pretty good.   Handbrakes on cement bogies  as well due to quick delivery from Wizzard models.  

 Mind you three green locos looks like a production line to me !

And a bit more  SSM flat  in brunswick green - Humbrol rattle can  and cement pallet two tamyia blues but still not too sure.Second flat in same condition just waiting on more bogie sideframes , a third that was bought in S/H in glued up state over being soldered has had some glue reinforcement and couplings sort - all on Kaydee 20s  , barrier tanks and container frames to sort. 1270858113_Irishmodelling10072020001.thumb.jpg.7705f83c6c0a3aa62b176bc1d397ba2e.jpg
