What's on my Workbench

I do not have any workbench at home, there is no room for that in our flat. Therefore the title should be "what's on the kitchen table".

Some projects are finished within a few days, others takes much longer. They disapear in a box and wait years for completion. But this a part of the fun, in in the hard real world (1:1 scale), you can not delay projects just for fun otherwise you have to search a new job.

Americanized 2-4-2 Lyn

Lyn is an outside framed 2-4-2 Baldwin. The prototype was delivered to Lynton & Barnstable, England in July 1898. A very similar 2-6-2 was delivered to Victorian Railways of Australia in 1897. This 2'6" line is preserved as Puffing Billy Railway.

The kit is from Backwoods Miniatures. Actually an 009 (00 1:76 scale, 9 mm gauge) kit. See also an other Backwoods kit I have built. The 0-4-0+0-4-0 K1 Garratt is waiting for assembling, but I have to do the 2-4-2 first.

4 Wheel Caboose

It is an old brass kit from Precision Scale (kit #10068, H0n3, Prototype C&S). You have to cut out the brass sides and ends, the brass sheets are only etched from one side.


The turntable begun its life as a N scale Peco turntable. My brother milled down the plastic deck about 0.8 mm. For the new wooden deck I glued single woodstrips. I removed the cast on pit rail and replaced it with code 55 rail on shortened ties. The turntable diameter is about 43 scale feet, just long enough for my largest Pine River Short Line engine, a Sango 2-6-0 Dachshund.
