And 560 was to be seen as well; the only one to keep her plates right to the end, I think.

I think i saw footage of 560 crossing the city railway with her plates on. 552 and 559 were the regulars in the later days but i think 560, 551, 553 and 557 have been on the line if not more!

And....with only a few small things like using spare SSM transfers to make decals, fixing the buffer ect. GSWR Number 33 is complete. As far as i know this engines last hurrah was working the Clonakilty branchline loosing the Macroom line to its closure and the Cobh line to the introduction of diesal railcars.

Just ordered a Bandon tank from studio scale models...however not the full kit with the wheels, gearbox, coupling rods ect. i want to try use an old hornby B12 4-6-0 Chassis and try incorporate it rather then assembling the chassis of the model as from what i heard from another beginner is the hardest part by far as the there is not room for error. its a bit big and a bit long but no point not trying! if not then ill try putting the kit together as its meant to! ill find out in the coming months.

Well while this wont work.....another strategy has come forth

 

Alex Duggan on facebook has started a Bandon tank 3d model designed for a B12 chassis that will be finished in the coming months no doubt. While its in the very early stages of testing right now. Its yet another step in the right direction for 3d printing. Of course while building a kit is much harder for somone of my experience to pull off this will be Much easier

 

Does anyone have any good photo's of the origional non belfair bandon tanks or anything that can help alex along with this undertaking?

That’s looking most promising. Such impressive locos - classic BP lines.
 

As for the SSM chassis, there are a few jigs you can get which will help in assembly. Eg http://217.199.187.193/poppyswoodtech.co.uk/tools.html

As long as the axle holes and coupling rod holes are aligned, the chassis will roll. That’s the most critical thing. Everything else is just fiddling about, and a bit of patience.

In your second last pic, on the right there are a couple of coaches. Are those the SECR models?

If so, they bear a "two-foot-rule" resemblance to the post-1903 MGWR designs. At least one ex-Midland coach did, in fact, operated briefly on the CBSCR main line immediately before the railcars came.

They are southern bogey coaches of some description or another. Another thing in the works to make flying snail coaches out of them eventually

 Will there be some weathering added?

Eventually there will be. Although i enjoy the idea of one of these being painted like this for an IRRS special!
