More stock for Outwell

Postby Alan » Sat Nov 21, 2009 8:51 pm

At last I have achieved two things tonight. (1) Firstly I have managed to post something on this forum. (2) I have managed to do some modelling. Work commitments getting in the way, since the end of March.

Here are some pics of my work in progress, Its the bogie coach of the type which ran on the Wisbech & Upwell tramway.
When completed it will join the four wheel version and run on Outwell Village, the layout which is based on the W & U at Outwell.

That's lovely work, Alan, neat and clean soldering. I do like the prototype, and I feel I ought to know the origin of this kit, but I can't put my finger on it at the moment...

Hi steve,

It does indeed, they are both the same apart from the wheel arrangement, and being slightly longer.

Hello Alan, glad to see you've got some time away from the taters. Coach looks very nice already; obviously having practiced on the four wheeler this one will fall together in a matter of minutes. :D On a different, yet related tack have you seen the new Oakwood Press book on the W&U? I'd hope it's a good un, I've got some of their later releases on the railways round here and they're very nice indeed.

Hello Neil,

You didn't pay too steep a price now, did you Alan? I know one went the other week on eBay for something like £156 :shock: :o

I managed to pick up one of these sets for a bargain price at Epsom earlier this year..........weren't until I got home though that I realised it was minus it's castings :roll: I'm sure I'll still be able to get by though when the time comes to build them for a future dream project.

Anyway, lovely work there Alan. Ever felt tempted to put it in Titfield blue then?.......................somebody had to ask :lol: ;)

Holy Cow! Somebody must have wanted it real bad. Makes Gauge 1 look cheap :lol:


It's about the third time I've seen a set crop up in the past several months. Alot of the D&S stuff fetches silly prices now, I even seen someone list an LNWR roof door van kit with a starting price of £35, though it never sold, and then got relisted at £25............they were a first time seller.

Got a bit more work done on the coach over the festive break. The bogies are in place as are the buffer beams,buffers and the coupling hooks. Also I have fitted the glazing and added seating and passengers, although the pic's dont show this. Will take some more pic's soon.

I have also started on a Sentinal steam shunter, which will run the metals of Outwell Village. These loco's did have trials on the Wisbech & Upwell tramway, but proved to be unsuccessful. As I have chosen to fit a Black Beetle motor rather than the recommended Tenshodo, I will have to make a new mounting bracket as the dimensions of the Beetle are different.

That Sentinel will look just right shunting in the yard. :)

Plain black livery I guess?

The coach is coming on a treat Alan; has snow stopped farming and had a beneficial effect on model making time?

Like the Sentinel lots too, do you remember those awful plasticard ones I built on Lima motor bogies, I may even have one in my bits box. I'll have a look later this morning, but they were just not in the same class as the Nucast kit, or anywhere near it for that matter.

Hello Neil, I had two weeks holiday over christmas hence I managed to do a bit of modelling. Snow a bit of a pain but us farmers have to keep moving.

Here is a shot of the interia of the coach. Just for effect when looking in from the outside.

A bit more work done on the coach. I have fitted some of the railings around the end, it seems to be more fiddly than on the four wheeler but it can't be as its exactly the same. Must be me!

Well its almost finnished, the body is just off to the paint shop. More roof detail to be added, awaiting the roof vents from the casting company.

Well this is true, had not forgot. It might be ready for then, if I can find some suitable roof vents or I can find a method of making them.

Having spent fruitless time looking around shows for some suitable air vents for the bogie coach, to replace the ones missing from the kit. I decided to try to make some, Here is the outcome.
2011_0103workbench0078.JPG

2011_0103workbench0080.JPG


I made them from a lolly stick and parts of a sprue from a kit, as can been seen in the top photo. First job was to glue a section of the lolly stick to represent the bottom wider part of the vent, to a piece of the sprue. When this had set I placed the assembly in a mini drill held in a vice and turned to the required shape.

I had not realised it is over a year since I posted on this thread, although some of the items have been posted else where on the forum. :o
First up is a pair of horse boxes.

The one to the front is of North Eastern origin,and lasted into the early 60's. The second again North Eastern . They are both brass kits from D&S Models, found on ebay.
They are liveried in Teak brown as they were in LNER period
