Hello to All:

Mulfred-100 your Winter scene photo looks fantastic, very nicely done. Thanks again for sharing with us all.

Well another week has pasted and I have been able to complete the Sir Handel models I have been building for Chaz and myself. I have mailed Chaz model to him and it is due to arrive today. So I hope you enjoy your model and your complete First Six plus Duke. Happy Holidays to you.

As I said in my last post I have added the coal load, face, couplers, and name and number plates. I have also assembled the body, powered chassis, and added the trailing wheels. The chassis' I used from N-Drive in the UK runs very smoothly and were worth the long wait for their arrival. So here are a few completion photos of Sir Handel.

Photo 3



I am very happy with how Sir Handel has turned out ad hope that you all have enjoyed my progress in building my Narrow Gauge collection. As Bachmann releases their Peter Sam and Sir Handel models our plan is to change the nameplates to Stuart and Falcon. Until then our models will serve as place holders until the Bachmann models are produced someday. I now have models of all of the narrow gauge models except Victor to my knowledge. As soon as I can get the 3D design errors fixed I will probably build him to complete my collection. I will also get a photo taken on my layout of all 14 of my narrow gauge locos and post it here as soon as I can.

Looking forward to the release of the narrow gauge coaches soon.

Enjoy,
Grandpuff

Great work to everyone! Really love seeing all the progress that has happened recently! While another semester of college is wrapping up, I am beginning to plan the next stages for the narrow gauge extension that I am in the process of making too. Here are some progress videos from the summer:

Heís an amazing model, thank you again Grandpuff for putting him together for me.  He will be a perfect addition to hold me over until a Bachmann model is made.  I would recommend this body to anyone who is anxious for Sir Handel while currently owning Bachmannís 3 narrow gauge engines and waiting for their Peter Sam model.   On that note...



Would anyone here like some M&Mís? Cheesy

Rodimus Supreme:

No, the faces I used for both of my Sir Handels came from Japanese Bandai Sir Handel models.
A little pricey to be sure, but the only ones that were the correct size.

Hello Again:

First thank you for your comments Terrence, I am a big fan of your layout and model work too.

And to Chaz I really liked your M&M's locomotive caravan, especially that the M&M colors matched the engines. It is great to see your "First SIX plus Duke" and I am happy to have played a part in making that happen for you. You were very generous in helping me build my Duke which started me on this journey to build all of the narrow gauge engines, thanks again.

I thought that I would post a photo showing all 14 of my narrow gauge engines gathered around my engine service facilities on my 2 X 4 foot layout. Shown clock wise around my turntable are Rusty on the turntable bridge, then from the lower left is Ivo Hugh, Freddie, Proteus, Millie, Luke, Sir Handel, Peter Sam, Smudger, Mighty Mac, Duke, Skarloey, Rheneus, and Duncan. I hope that you all have enjoyed seeing my models as much as I have enjoyed building them.

Also just to let everyone know, I received a call from TW today telling me that my Red Coaches are on the way, YAY!

Enjoy,
Grandpuff

Waiting for the call that mine are ready for pick up, though I've had to specify I won't be able too until after Christmas.

Just checked TrainWorld and it would appear they are now in stock at long last! I would love to get them after getting my first engine (leaning mainly toward Rheneas) and I think it helps that they are set at a reasonable price.

Are narrow gauge couches couches that are smaller than standard couches? Tongue

Just wanted to point out that couches are something you sit on and coaches are something you sit in. Also that our and are do not mean the same thing. And yes Narrow Gauge coaches are smaller than standard gauge coaches due to the smaller gauge of the track even though the scale is the same.
