Left field

It’s no secret that I’ve always wanted to build a Victorian Railways S class 4-6-2 and Spirit of Progress in N scale. 

It took another step forward in the creation of a later series S class tender bogie and making the SOP carriage bogie a while ago. This is the same bogie that was under the QH and QS wagons as well.

Whilst I work on multiple projects I also try to do some things that I want to do for my layout Wallan

Victorian Railways ZL kit update

For those wanting a ZL kit there is a delay as Peco stopped making their NR112B underframe that was used to complete it. 

Consequently, I have re-evaluated the kit and have decided to produce the more common 6-wheel version and include a 3D underframe as part of the kit.

Each kit will come with 1 ZL lasercut etch and a 3D printed chassis and 6 wheels.

Currently I’m revising the instructions to cater for the changes. Photo courtesy of Paul B. Photos shows old chassis style

Pushing for more detail

I've only had the printer for a week now but I'm pushing it and myself to see what I can achieve with it. It's not even at its best setting yet but I'm happy with the print of the E car bogie which even has the VR on the horn guides.

Microtrains on the left and my printed E car bogie on the right.

Tried printing an ABE which again looks great.
