Rufuskins' Workshop LNWR Wagons

Post  rufuskins on Wed 14 Dec 2016, 8:39 am

I've made a start on a 7T Van for LNWR - Diagram 32. This is not included in Brian's wagon upload. I'm also looking to create Diagrams 22 (Cattle Wagon), 53 (Coal wagon), 64 (Loco Coal Wagon) and 84 (Open Goods). I had hoped to post a screenshot but for some reason I can't get it to upload?

Well at long last I've managed to upload a picture of the almost complete Diagram 32 (7T Van). It's missing door fittings and some lettering.

Here is what I hope is the final version of the Diagram 32 with LNWR lettering.

I shall also produce a version with the illiterate symbol. I should point out that these wagons only had one set of doors located on the opposite side of this formation, and as this has just left Duddesdon Goods Shed on the original Black Country route would have have made unloading somewhat difficult!
I have also produced some sketches for a Diagram 84 Open Wagon. I believe that Volume 3 of the LNWR Society Wagon books may be available in the spring of next year, which should allow me to produce some coal and loco coal wagons. In the short term I hope to get a copy of the 1903 LNWR Wagon Diagram book that may allow me to do some of those early? Rooting out information can really add to the enjoyment of our great hobby.

Just a brief update on activity in this area of the workshop. I was advised that that the handbrake should have been the other way round, and I have amended it to suit. I have also been gently admonished for referring to the "diamond" as an illiterate symbol when it was more akin to a logo for the early days of the railways. Whilst early railway workers were not totally uneducated the symbol did allow for a lack of literacy skills. I shall now move onto a Diagram 84 open wagon.

Here in the LNWR wagon workshop only Christmas Day was taken as a break, but today we are back in business and here's a picture of a Diagram 84 10T Open wagon.

Need to add "10 TONS" to the wagon sides.

Just noticed the lettering is wrong.
The centre "arm" of the W should be full hight.

Hopefully it will be an easy fix.

Thanks for that Ian, and I'll look at that later.
Here's a screenshot of D32 plus D84 on a short trip working.

Next I'll try a Diagram 103 as that has similar chassis and braking.

Looks Good Alec. I see you have used the different W OK

Thanks for the comment, and yes I've amended the "W" in all 3 wagons.

Still not right.
The W should have a flat top.



Try these. I use them for most of my private owner wagons.

I may or may not amend the lettering on the Diagram 103, but I shall continue to create virtual models that are representative rather than exact. If they do not meet some peoples' exacting standards then I can only suggest that they don't download any potential upload that I might make.

Here in the LNWR Wagon workshop the following wagons have been completed apart from final review and check including lettering:-

Diagram 32 = Van
Diagram 53 = Traffic Coal
Diagram 54 = Traffic Coal
Diagram 64 = Loco Coal
Diagram 64B = Loco Coal
Diagram 84 = Open
Diagram 103 = Open (Low)

I am considering the following once I have completed the 50ft arc roof corridor coaches:-

Diagram 4 = Open
Diagram 17A = Brake
Diagram 22 = Cattle
Diagram 87 = Van (Express)

I should point out that the coal wagons and brake vans are based on the 1903 LNWR Wagon Diagram Book and hence some details are best guesses. Once Volume 3 of the LNWR Wagon Books is published - possibly April/May this year - they can be revisited for any significant corrections.

Taking a break from carriages here's a screen shot of a rake of the Diagram 4 6T Open carrying wagon wheels.

It'll be back to finalising the 50ft arc roof corridor coaches tomorrow, with just Diagrams 316 and 317 to complete - they need logos and numbers.

Having finished the 50ft corridor coaches, I've developed the parts to make up the Diagram 87 express van. Livery is with LNWR only as per those built after 1914 - relevant to Brian's Black Country (LNWR) route. Once this had been put together I'll look at Diagram 22 (Large Cattle Van). I may not do Diagram 17A (Brake Van) until much later.

Here's a screen shot of a rake of Diagram 22 Large Cattle Vans, which completes the initial batch of LNWR wagons I set myself to do.

I now need to go back through them and make any necessary tweaks. I intend to upload them as a single batch with LNWR markings, although I may look at amending textures later to include the earlier "diamond" logo.

Here's a screen shot of the LNWR wagons I hope to upload soon, although the Brake Van is one of Brian's wagons. They look good behind an 0-8-0 C1, even if I do say it myself.

Very Nice ! Look forward to adding them to my LNWR Trainset.

This is another area I'm hoping to dabble in again, especially as Volume 3 of the LNWR Wagon Book series is due out soon!
