Ops , uploaded the post twice, here is a pic of the Athearn loco on it's way, I plan to use the shell on the lead loco and the chassis for the second F7/B loco was going to buy a dummy loco found this one motorist for the same price.

Going to be a challenge with using a different make shell, plan to modify the fuel cover to hold the shell on the  Bachman chassis.

Will be a sight to see a Santa Fe Super Chief running next to a Indian Pacific train, mind you I do have an LMS Beyer-Garret 2-6-0+0-6-2T to haul my Kootenay Express Passenger train!.

Afternoon Ken, yeah look even better with Santa Fe's Super Chief replacement Amtrak's Southwest Chief,  sad  indeed.

I have a full set of the super liners , not the AMD103 locos in the latest  phase 5 colour scheme that will change, the consist are 10 super lines for Amtrak's Southwest Chief.

Also got a set of Union Pacific heritage passenger cars for DD40AX 6936 I bought a plain Bachman DD40AX and had it painted in UP colour scheme with running numbers 6936 long before Athearn bough their 6936 out, thinking of re motoring the loco as I am having a lot of trouble with it.

Not sure if I will get outside on the layout today, my wife is very tired up to our son last night a few times, that happens when I don't hear him calling out, told her to have some shut eye today always tomorrow.

Hi Ken, I forgot to mention that down the track I am looking into modelling my own Beyer Garret AD60 NSW ,2-8-4-4-8-4 buying two sets of 2-8-4 steam chassis and one whith a shell on it,a friend did the same a few years back.

They are pretty dear to buy RTR in the $900 mark and  a few issues with the cnnections on each chassis.

THat ship I aminterested in building a water line model of getting some help from another ship forum in PDF plans  pure awesome can't wait to see the plans, I have summer covered on those hot days can last a whole week in the low 40's.

Working on the layout finishing off the secon car port end module and starting on the third moving onto the curve deck , cutting sides for it to stop it bowing in the middle especiaaly when storied in the  garden shed.

Tony from down  under, a taste of summer today 32 degrees hot night 11 degrees and tonight 3 degrees  no wonder we are having a bad flue seaon .

Good luck with your AD 60 build, still puttering around with my model of a Kitson-Meyer 2-6-0+0-6-2 T, based on the Baby Kitson delivered to the Ferrocarril de Cundinamaraca Railway in Columbia in 1928.

About the closest AU got to a Kitson-Meyer was a proposal sent to a Queensland Railway in 1911.

Hi Ken, would love to see a pic of your Beyer Garret they are a huge loco ideal for tight curves handle better to the Big boys.
Here is a pic of QLD's Beyer Garret 1009 sadly was grounded because of the cab issue didn't pass work, health and safety on display at QLD's workshop museum . Ipswich.
Be a while before I make a start on my Beyer Garret version , concentrating on the layout want something to run around Christmas time.

I thought I had a couple of photos of the Beyer-Garrett, will need to take a few and reload them to forward on.

Sounds like a typical govt concept, trying to fit todays reg's for something 50 years old. Still 1009 looks good.

Ken

Hi Ken, be looking forward to seeing the pics of your garret, yeah they tried to modify the cab was going to too costly so sadly she was grounded permanently.

I was so close to getting plans of the Ro, Ro  ship I want to build a water line model of, wasn't going to pay 150 euros for the plans so close but so far away.

I sent a email to a model boat club in Brisbane to see if they can help me track the plans down.


Still looking for a good  pic of the bridge of the ship especially behind the bridge and top deck.
Tony from down under, cool morning here 3 degrees nice spring days, work progressing  on the layout today.

Well under way working in the car port area, finished the second car port module and onto the third module, have come up with a new way to screw the top ply  top onto  the sides using corner clamps, should of thought of this idea years back speeding the module constriction much faster.

 

Pic two is how I line up the track up every time I join the modules together with just two screws , making it very quick to set each module up, so I may move back to the station modules to do aay with the bolts using a a special jig to hold the modules together less time on my knees only to plug up the bus wires.


Next pic  sliding the two modules together.



Joined up 

Final pic both modules 




All I need to do is cut the two ends and two beams then be ready for painting back into track laying and bus wiring be pretty quick no with only two tracks, the next section is the curve,12foot quarer curve 7 foot long onto that straight section that one has track on it.
then a second straight and that one the double track ends single track linking up to the back corner module onto the bridge.

The north end will have the spiral  after other corner module, all the dection is cut already just a matter of building the spiral. and onto another large curve into the north approach module going to be ure awesome when the first train runs can't wait for the big day.

The only thing that will hold up finishing the first track circuit is run out of track, asking Santa for a full box of flexi  track, ha, ha.;)
