Tramway trea­sure

Model Rail (UK) - - The Club Room -

I was very happy to see the Sen­tinel ‘Y1’ be­ing pro­duced, as the Kerang­shire Tramway in north­ern Vic­to­ria, Aus­tralia, used one for a num­ber of years. In com­mon with most Aus­tralian mod­ellers, ‘HO’ is my scale of choice, and the small size of the lo­co­mo­tive is a rea­son­able fit with the rest of my rolling stock. I’ve fit­ted it with brass and styrene cow­catch­ers, re­moved the BR em­blem, re­duced the buffer­head di­am­e­ter and have mod­i­fied some Kadee cou­plers for oper­a­tional rea­sons (I’ve re­moved them for the pho­to­graph). I just have some weath­er­ing with pas­tels and dry-brush­ing of paint high­lights to fin­ish and it’ll be ready to go.
