I have a wee problem (that does not seem to be faced by most members/readers of this group!
) in so far as I'm a bit short on motive power for goods work. I have enough for most operations through doubling, but it's time to apply myself to more. One target I have had in mind for a little while as a "quick" (watch how that changes....) option is conversion of a RTR loco to a “near” VR V Class as rebuilt to simple. The V Class is both an attractive and useful prototype, and the simple just
makes it into my era.
Given the interest shown and queries received when I have shared some scratch building, and the occasional discussion around the topic, I thought some members/readers might be interested if I document at least the major stages of the build in this VRE forum.
I'm not sure about this as there's pros/cons to making one's inner modelling workings so public!!
For example, the build might be a bit sporadic now I have changed to a more demanding work world, and have a 2nd child on the way....
Anyway, would it be helpful/interesting to any members/readers? Is there any interest in my doing so?
