One of my earliest scratchbuilds, IOMR wagon H24 (built 2013,) is in for new underframes, bufferbeams, axleboxes and wheels. The body of H8, awaiting similar treatment, can be seen behind.

A "little bit" more work on the Pagosa. Made some overlays for the standard unadorned car ends and......a sorta mail sorter from some scrap bit of a laser cut fret. That grid was begging for something to be done with it. One of the car ends will be painted to match the rest of the non-passenger part of the combine the other will be stained to match the rest of the parlour (?) area. Need some fresh supplies of Swan Morton 10A's now. Max

I am not a fan of diesel units but somehow I just love them in G Scale, especially these little wonders. Have 2 x 2 car sets, 1 x 3 cars sets and 3 singles. Some being piggy nosed jobs. Sure that Dad will be delighted.

Have to say it is nice to see a box used for the correct purpose. Nicely done.

More measuring, cutting, scribing and glueing today.

If you Google 'Gormo point levers', you'll find a blog running through his extensive development work for 00 gauge point levers and rodding. I wasn't sure it would translate into 45mm/ft, but it does; the furthest point from the 'box is probably 15 - 20 feet away, and operates smoothly. The station points are even easier, and provide the lovely slow movement I was after, rather than the thump of a solenoid. Sometimes analogue is best :) .

Indeed it is hard to improve on the satisfaction of pulling a lever and seeing plus feeling it go across in a satisfying non crashing way. My Air operations have a similar satisfaction though some tend to a bit drastic, but I satisfy myself that many early Railways the District and Southern out of Waterloo went from mechanical to Air Operation. The District Railway extremely early commencing with installations in place around 1905, us garden railway types only discovered the joys of Air in the 1990’s almost 90 years later. Makes you think about that solenoid crash that we had been so used to! When Del-Air started around the 90’s there were Air Motors suitable for even 00 Gauge, sadly they never appeared to catch on over here except in the Garden to a small degree.

Not at my workbench but at my lady friends Workmate 400. I spent the day preparing and painting four more “Small Figures” from Roundhouse Engineering.

Idris was/is the dragon in the firebox of Ivor the Engine.
It is, therefore, most appropriate that the local minister is so named as they are renowned for their fire & brimstone deliveries!

The pile of Stainz conversion Bits continues to grow, still a few more to go yet mainly all the big bits, then I can start to stick and screw it all together :) I did start to add up how many hours it would take to print it all, but gave in recording, as it doesn't really matter how long it takes :D

As I believe you have both filament, and resin, printers..
Which parts are printed on which printer?
Have you used more than one type of filament?

Thanks,
PhilP.

The Bluey Grey parts still on the printing supports are ABS like Resin, the rest are all the same filament in this case all PETG as it warps less than ABS when printing large parts, but stands up well still to temperatures. there are two colors just because I have two printers and one has white filament in it and the other Grey :) and the White Rivets are acrylic round beads glued into the holes printed in the parts, works well where you can use that technique :)
