    Hi I haven't posted much of late but the mineral train is just about there just some transfers and couplings to do there will eventually be two trains of 25 wagons one loaded and one empty
    I'm hoping to post a bit of film in the not to distant future of the beams chassis working. :)
    Regards

    Very nice John and good to see your progress.

    I have been helping the 2FS section of the Basingstoke Club and they have struggled with trackwork... with wagons... and continued to the point where success can be seen across the whole spectrum of the layout. Today the gang has been building Clams from association kits - my contribution is limited to fitting bodies to underframes (which I note are Fence Houses products for BR HTOs... much more to my liking than Clams!).

    regards, Graham

    Hi the etches for the coal tank turned up today I hope the photo is clear enough I understand that a chassis kit is being done for the kit but first the Beames

    Hi I've been away for a while but I'm back with a smile I've posted these as I'm hopefully going to put the motor in soon and the Beames could be running .The problem I've had is that I have absolutely no idea how to use the quartering jig and how to put the gears and muffs together but a 2mm member just happens to live nearby and has offered to show me
    So
    Hopefully soon
    John
