31128 Charybdis

This is a conversion of an O Gauge Class 31/4 back to a Class 31/1. 31128 is currently the only Class 31 with a mainline certificate. I stripped all the ETH equipment off the Loco, filled the holes, masked off the area and undercoated and top coated as necessary.

I have now given the Loco a light to medium weathering. Sadly the Heljan 31/4 does not come with snowploughs, so the Loco remains plough-less until I can source some.

Class 37 D6712 Weathered

Here we have an O Gauge Class 37 in ‘as delivered’ livery, about six months into service. It has received a medium weathering on the roof, frames and bogies but the bodyside has only received a light dusting. This assumes that some form of cleaning took place even when shedded alongside the disappearing steam locos. All detailing accessories were added and missing parts sourced and added.

Scottish 08 in O Gauge

This is my first first attempt to post on my new Computer – I think I have fathomed it all out – fingers crossed.

I have spent the last two days preparing and weathering ten pieces of O Gauge Stock – here is the first to be finished. This 08 was based at Eastfield and is in 1987 – 89 livery. This is a light to medium weathering.

37403 in O Gauge

This is my last Loco of the current batch, it is destined for my Mate in Australia. 37403 Isle of Mull is modelled as newly converted into a 37/4 in 1985.

This was a bit of a challenge as this loco was converted from an ex Western Region loco and retained its regional lamp irons. Adding them was not the problem – finding some was! I eventually tracked some down and duly purchased them.

The nameplates are Fox and the transfers are a mixture of Fox and Railtec.

This Loco will have a medium weathering, more photos later.
