Modules finally named and ballasted

Posted by Alan on 30th April 2016 in 0n30, Alan's Railway |

In other news, the dry weather today was exploited and my boards have received ballast! Davidson Crossing, Sunstone Creek, Balfern Curve and Inworth Curve are now drying in the shed.

Modules depths reduced to 100mm

Posted by Alan on 30th April 2016 in 0n30, Alan's Railway, Wood Butchery, Woodworking Jigs |

Using a jig that I constructed last night from bits of wood in the shed, we have this afternoon reduced the depth of all the Tim Horn board kits in stock to 4″ from 6″, or 100mm from 150mm in modern money.

Painting the module boards

Posted by Alan on 24th October 2015 in 0n30, Alan's Railway |

Another hiatus, another school holiday! Having put my Dear Lady Wife and Son / Heir on a plane to Slovakia for half-term, I was able to take the module boards out of the loft and treat them to a coat of paint.

Track and wiring

Progress on the modules has been slow, for which read non-existent. With the looming date of the Seaboard Southern show in September, at which these are expected to not only appear but be operational, it’s high time to extract the digit!

Corner Boards Assembled

Posted by Alan on 16th April 2015 in 0165, 0n30, Alan's Railway |

Flushed with the success of the straight boards, it was time to tackle the corner boards. As a precaution, which proved to be unnecessary, the sides were thoroughly wetted and bent, in the hope that they wouldn’t crack or split during assembly.

Straight Boards Assembled

Posted by Alan on 16th April 2015 in 0165, 0n30, Alan's Railway |

Well, today was one of those dry days and, between two of us, the four board kits were assembled. Tim Horn‘s instructions were not specific to the boards ordered but only because they’d been modified to include the Frem0n30 endplates. However, such is the quality of his kits that instructions really aren’t necessary.

Large Parcel Received!

Posted by Alan on 10th April 2015 in 0165, 0n30, Alan's Railway |

Early on Thursday morning last week, I received notification of a parcel delivery the following day, and then later an invoice for payment immediately. Having made payment, I waited – mostly patiently – until the Friday afternoon for the parcel, which eventually arrived at around five o’clock.

As alluded to my previous post, discussions are ongoing with Tim Horn with a view to building a new layout … and look what arrived in yesterday’s post!

Mount Blue Model Company Freelance Switcher

Posted by Alan on 13th July 2014 in 0n30 |

The Mount Blue Model Company produces a number of 0n30 kits to fit on Bachmann mechanisms and underframes. This is the build of the Freelance Diesel Switcher, which is about half way down the page linked to above. I got mine from EDM Models.
