Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Hawthorn class Broad Gauge locomotive

I have now virtually finished ‘Hackworth’ a member of the 2-4-0 Hawthorn class of Great Western Broad Gauge locomotives. It’s mainly scratch built using etches produced for me for the footplate, splashes and valance.

The loco is finished in its final state with double buffers to facilitate working mixed gauge trains. Because of the fine tolerance between wheel and valance I elected to use a slightly smaller driving wheel to prevent shorts. The cab and boiler blackhead remain to be done as well as a suitable crew.
