    I really like the new system for inserting photos, makes it far easier to add in text descriptions now that one sees the photo in the editor Great Eoin
  3. Inchicore Class J10 Conversion From LNER J72

    Hi 617 had its buffers painted red, SMM decal number added to the front buffer beam, new axle spacers and final drive gear installed which has improved the running- minimal lurch now. I sourced the replacement axle spacers from Peters Spares.... And a shot pulling a bit of freight out at Greystones yesterday morning Eoin

  13. Hi With the need for a small steam loco to run on Closetmodeller's Greystones Layout to pull a RPSI or IRRS type excursion train, we looked for an easy and inexpensive conversion. I had previously earmarked the Jinty 0-6-0 as a relative easy conversion to an Irish type tank loco- the Inchicore Class J10 or a J11. At the Wexford Show a Mainline Jinty was offered for €10.00, so CM splashed out and our 0-6-0 Tank Loco was secured and travelled off to the workshops. This will be its story..... The J10 is easier to do as its cab needs very little work, the main work is in-around the front splashers and snadboxes, most of the other bits are pretty close. So with that and some other minor fettling- handrails, coal bunker, valance & front steps, valves, and roof top whistles, its going to be a J10 The tanks are little a bit short, but not sure yet if I'll go at that! The plan is worked out, this I did by scanning the loco side and setting up a drawing to have a pattern to work to for sizing the bits and working out what gets in the way! According to Mr Clements 5 of these were built for shunting around North Wall Goods Yard, a photo exists of 617 (Pioneer) taken in 1938 at Broadstone, so 617 it will be...... Eoin
