New Danny

A Birthday present of a Danny locomotive from Kent Garden Railways and made by LC Models.  This is very well constructed and is superb to operate but is VERY BLACK.  The first job is to change the centre chopper couplings to three link  then a set of chevrons front at rear followed by a name and number plate then we can think about decoration.

An Electric Mamod?

Having owned a Mamod for many years I never had one decent firing but the loco was basically the ideal motive power.  This Mac tells you to “think different” so how about a battery powered Mamod. So here is a start. An Alan Dunster  Dream Steam enhanced wheels split apart and a Cambrian Gear wheel fitted then reassembled so we have the basis for applying power to the wheels.
