Success Bolstered


Not too much to report tonight but the Bolster E is now structurally complete and with running gear and couplings fitted is ready for the paint shop. The J39 although largely complete lacks the sandboxes which should be ahead of the forward pair of driving wheels but everything else outstanding is essentially paint.
That being the case, I’ll save photographing 64948 for the blog until work is fully completed.


About maxstafford60093

Scotsman in exile. Lover of Scotland's railways, land, people and culture. Always got an ear for new and interesting music. Politically of the left and most definitely repelled by the shallow and narcissistic. An unlikely jazz-cat mod rocker with punk tendencies; a bit 1968, a bit 1977 with a distracting overdub of 1958... Most often found outdoors with my four legged buddy!

    It does look good. Do you know, I’ve never clapped eyes on those Lima donor models. Not one!

    Looks good Dave.
    Jamie – must look harder, sometimes in grey, often with a load of FB rail.

      Hi John, total blank on these – don’t recall them in boxes, nor on layouts. Funny that?!

      Not that I am looking for any, I hasten to add. See you at ModelRail, I hope 🙂

  4. For something once rather common they do currently appear to be as rare as rocking horse keech!
