A new loco kit

Posted on December 7, 2015. Filed under: Project progress |

This kit of parts makes up into a basic footplate and cab assembly.

54495 Scratch 1 151207       Pickersgill 4-4-0 54495

The Caledonian Railway Dunalastair IV and Pickersgill engines are quite similar, so it was easy to make some extra parts for the Pickersgill while plodding along with the Dunalastair IV. Differences include the coupling rod splashers and cab, and the overall length.

After much research and soul-searching, I came to the conclusion that the smokebox, boiler and firebox are the same on both superheater engines in 1950s form. That’s the next job after tacking together these parts.
