Si.

Came across this photo while cleaning up.

R111 close prototype.  L:   I took the photo in Aus. first trip. :us:


Finally getting some track laid, ways to go yet for running,

but I at least have a decent place for photo's and a few structures,

which are in kits or on various shelf's. :2t:  


Time for some Dark Rum &  :java:

Had a chance to pick up 8 R111s a couple of months back,

have way to many pieces of rolling stock already.  :bang:

L:

I could part with 2 or 3 dozen, and still have way too many.  :)

Hi    Ken  :wave:



HOLY  HOPPER  HOARD  BOY  WONDER  !

WE'LL  NEED  A  BIGGER  BAT  CAVE  ! ! !



I'm not classed as a terminal hoarding case ... YET ... Ken.  ;) :us:

I've only got 3 'Tri-ang' Operating Hopper Car Sets ! ! !  :shocked:  :shocked:  :shocked:





Oh ... Plus of course the  MASSIVE  ;)  stash of extra spare hopper cars !  :shocked:



I doubt it would impress  'The Tri-ang Collectors Club'  much though ...  :f:  :td:

... I figure some of their top Members hopper hoards are HUGE !  :P



I have been working out some kind of 1:35n2 BASHin' strategy for the R111s ...  L:

... 'Plastruct' 1/4" channel down the sides, 1:35 chequer-plate ends & new knuckles. 



Now I just need the 'Plastruct' & some spare ...  :time:  For the BASHin' !  :dt:



:moose:



Si.

I've heard references to Tri-ang junk before,

but this is the first place I've come across Tri-ang junkies!


Clearly a not so secret society of modellers! 

     :hyp:  :bg:

Not TRI-ANG,

but a friend of mine, has a HUGE HOARD of ore cars,

last count was 1400+ :us:


When the local MRR club had to vacate their building,

he ran 250 + 300 car trains at the last open house.


Working on a template for checker-plate for my R111 cars,

only need enough for 8 cars,

then onto a couple of TRI-ANG tank car conversions.

:glad:

1:35 scale.... Hmmmm

Seems to me I've got some of that scale lying around....

Just not a lot useful for a railroad.


Cept maybe a '50s style Diamond Tow Truck Die-cast piece....

Couldn't resist, it was a really nice die-cast piece.

LOL

Hi    Ken  :wave:



I see on your No.8 Hopper Car R111, you've mounted knuckles.  :thumb:

Also changed the trucks, by the looks of things.  L:

Those darn truck mounting RIVETS, are a killer to remove without damage !  :f:





This ^^ 'Tri-ang' R111 Hopper Car, is from a bunch I got on eBay, inc. some Covered Hoppers.  :dt:

They were all a bit beaten up, to say the least, & painted a kinda 'British Rail' (ish) livery.  :shocked:

Not bad though, for Dr. Frankenstein to practice producing some MONSTER ore-cars from !  ;)



I'm looking forward to seeing your R111 progress Ken ...  :thumb:

... & of course any 'Tri-ang' Tank Car conversions, sound GREAT to me !  :cool:

Go on Ken ... Time to start a new 'Tri-ang' Hopper Car & Tank Car BASHing Thread !!  :time:



:moose:



Si.

Si.

I used left over Model Die Cast archbar trucks for the cars,
and Kadee #5s.

The cars are intended for a seperate mining operation,
so will not be used on my in progress layout.


Always fun to remove TRI-ANG trucks.
 
I usually wedge them to one side to leave a gap,
and cut the mounting rivet, using a decent hobby saw.

A couple of lengths of Evergreen tubing glued in,
trim and mount the trucks.
Then onto the next conversion. :glad:


I will be using Plastruct 91681 HO scale diamond/tread plate,
to cover the open deck, as I found a couple of sheets in my stock pile.
Will cut out a brass template for cutting the plastic.  :moose:
