Finally got my hands on a few of the NG Coaches, already starting converting them.

This one will likely sold because of some small areas I'm not happy with, hence i got another blue coach to remake Lucy. Ruth has just started under going her repaint, with Agnes arriving today.
I also built Cora:

I purchased their new red and blue narrow gauge coaches back in December. 3 of each. I totally forgot that I purchased 6 and thinking I had 4 for some reason. Silly me.

Like posted earlier the blue carriages also don't have door handles on the other side. Plus I don't remember these coaches ever having bumpers.

While looking at photos from season 4 I can see the bumpers. Probably me not seeing them is the lighting which is pretty dark with same paint being black.

Hey Chaz where's your review on the narrow gauge coaches? It's been several weekends pasted already.

Thanks Chaz, I thought the review was on this discussion than the narrow gauge coach discussion. It was a very good review. I had the same problem trying to make mine.

Thank you!  Iím glad you enjoyed it.

I will be posting updates on my new OO9 layout soon, I added the baseboard last night so now itíll be a matter of laying the track/roadbed before I can really get started.

Figured I'd attempt to post this here. Recently started experimenting with adding faces to my NG coaches, and decided to use the clear sticker faces after discussing it with a Japanese modeler who did the same.

I started with Lucy, who served as the testing ground for the theory, though I wound up having to shave one of the communication cords back. I plan to either remedy the face or just redo it. It'll likely be cut up into the separate features to allow for easier application and serve as the test for that.

Agnes turned out better, and she's also gotten her class numbers applied to her door:


Still trying to find one that's a bit different from Agnes for Ruth, while Jemima and Beatrice? Well I'll cross that bridge once I'm able to get their respective kits done and built.
