About the blog

The layout is merely an exercise to prove that anyone can build a reasonably plausible SDJR layout in a modest space WITHOUT having to resort to scratchbuilding, instead easily available models were repurposed to suit the supposed location.

2P 40634

For almost a month, I have been in recovery following a heart attack and open heart bypass surgery. The 2P has now been completed, thanks to Neil Kinison. 


A rather good image of the loco showing the later Fowler dome and chimney (without capuchon) 



2P 40634 at BGP 1954 
 
The Hornby model upgraded with new crew, fixtures and fittings



The dome and chimney are Fowler items from Alan Gibson Workshops Dome 4M613 - Chimney 4M608. - for building a BR loco but the capuchon on the chimney had to be removed.


And almost finished?

    My first thought reading the post was s**t!

    Really like the new layout.

    Best wishes.
