Well It was nice to see some new and old faces at the Bristol show, including one member who nearly demanded I told him the answer to my last question.....
Well to put him out of his miserey.......There are 8 non Easybuild bogies in the box. The 2 silver B1 and 6 Commomwelth.
Now to start on the next batch of coaches. More photo's soon.
For a change I've started on a Loco convertion.
The quistion i was asked was can I convert a Heljan 45 into a 45/1.
My answer was, should be easy, you only need to add the ETH cables to the front..........WRONG.
Complete bogie-Loco dismantalation just to get to the Buffer-beam off.
Then body alterations.
and I've agreed to convert a 45 to a 46.
and some people wonder why I have
A Glutton for Punishment in my thred title.
Also add the 10 coaches i'm building.......

this must be a new definition of "few" that I'm not aware of!
Compaired to the 10 coach build i had last year then this is a "few"
