At last

Post  lynnr on Fri 23 Sep 2011, 12:33 pm

Hi All

Springs arrived this evening Very Happy

Now chemical blacked and fitted.







Hitch arrangement on the taller wheels.




Seat is tooo high for confortable use behind the roofed loco's
I think unless STW has a better idea my seat is going lower and slightly to the near side and a second seat on the off side.

SO water bowser basically finished. Just the bolts around the suspension to treat and tighten up and the bowser will be going behind the wagons.

Thoughts?

Post  lynnr on Fri 23 Sep 2011, 12:42 pm

Having cogitated for 5 minutes.

When the traction wagons are built and the water bowser is still at the angle I think I will remove the seat frame and fabricate a swan neck for the tow hitch to get the chassis of the bowser level.

Hi Craig

lol Kit did not arrive until 17:50 and I had to have dinner first Smile

Just noticed a picture missing and a dupliate in last post.
Bit of a pain that we can not edit posts in this thread.

Idle between kits and days off

Post  lynnr on Thu 27 Oct 2011, 8:00 am

Well since I am idle at the moment waiting for the next kit, just been informed tomorrow. I thought I would line out the water tank. Make it match the engine.

Water bowser now complete. Even got the wheels muddy before it was finished.






There must have been more than 3 carts sold in the last 6 months. Where is all the pictures??

Not much happened with mine over the last few weeks. However now the paint has arrived can get it underway again and hopefully finished. Yours has come out really well though and matches the engine well. I need to visit ex-mayor to decide how best to line it out, but have a few ideas.

You hit a problem on the nail there. What will I do once the engine is finished.
Yes I will be getting a wagon. possibly 2 if they can stack for storage. Looking at the CAD's the wheel plan appears to allow it.

Forgot.. Will try and get some daylight engine and bowser this coming weekend.

stunning!

Post  Dan on Sat 12 Nov 2011, 1:14 pm

Well all I can say is WOW!

One q though... when you connect the bowser to the tender do you have some kind of nylon bushing? How do you stop the paint getting all scraped up? On my 3" I just accept it as a sacrificial area and it's basically metal on metal. How do STW/lynnr do it?

not changed. Still metal on metal. Will lube up when on the road next year. Also I am going to round off the hitch profile so it does not dig into the mating area.

Lynn

Looking absolutely fantastic.

The profile view suggests the seat is very close to the top of the bunker extension on uneven ground I would be concerned about getting my bits trapped Shocked From the instructions with the tender STW suggest the seat for the DCC will probably mount on the tender. What are your plans with the water bowser seat?

I am going to have a wagon between the engine and bowser so most problibly the seat on the bowser will be cut off. I also find sitting on the seat does feel too high to work and stoke comfortably.

STW. You may want to give an option to have the bowser kit without the seat.

Finally finished the painting of the water bowser. The spring hangers were not painted.














Reasonable shine. No polishing done at this stage. It is just the spray finish.



The finished artical.

Looks really good Lynn.

Not sure about you but I have been wondering if the drain cock will be very practical out in the filed. I've been looking for an alternative 90 degree globe value but not yet found one the right size.

Tap is not for use but just for emptying. The water litter hose in the top will be done for tender filling. I spent about five days looking for a tap and did not find one.
