Re: 125 class Dundee Bogie

Yes, You make a good point on the frames, David. Thanks. I will follow. The way I tackled the cylinders on the 179 I built recently was to have two thirds of the cylinder attached to the chassis, with all the moving parts attached, and then a dummy third attached to the body. The solebar hides the j...

Re: 125 class Dundee Bogie

Wow, that's amazing. The springs are unusual, aren't they. I'm still thinking of going for a shorter frame ending just forward of the front driving wheel with a horizontal extension under the smokebox, screwed and soldered onto a rectangular frame spacer, from which to hang the bogie and cylinders. ...

Re: 125 class Dundee Bogie

Hi Folks (especially Dalziel). In the 125 class, the splashers are very large, reaching almost half way up the boiler. Building in 00, I'm having the main frames end in front of the driving wheels and a separate subframe for the bogie. On the main chassis, would you shape the frames so that they mir...

Re: 125 class Dundee Bogie

Thanks to Jim, I now have the most beautiful pierced splashers and the cab sides for an unrebuilt engine. Progress so far has been limited to admiring them and discussing with Jim whether 28mm Romford wheels would foul the 29mm diameter splashers. The answer seems to be 'yes' so 27mm wheels will be ...

Hi Alan and Jim, from where do you source your double-sided pcb and what is it called? Thanks, Graham

Re: 125 class Dundee Bogie

Wow! Unfortunately, I am building in 00. I wonder if your etches would scale down, if only for the fretted splasher!

Re: 125 class Dundee Bogie

Thanks to both Jims for these insights. I'd assumed that they might not have lasted but I'm going to imagine the branch to Loch Fyne from Dalmally had been built, to allow improved rail + boat tours from Glasgow and the south, so drafting a 125 in for light duties in its dotage is so much smaller mo...

125 class Dundee Bogie

I am hoping to model one of the above. On the CRASSOC CD-Rom of loco drawings, the 125 class has a stovepipe chimney, cab with curved-back front at roof level and the same width as the splashers plus a three-quarter roof, the whistle is behind the chimney and the safety valves are on the firebox. In...

Re: Dalmally Station

I have just joined Crassoc. I modelled Dalmally in 00 in a very amateurish way as a teenager in the 1960s. I have a series of slides taken at the time and have made models in card of most of the station buildings and the surrounding houses. I may have resources that would be useful even at this late...
