DECADE - The ignored locomotive

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

DECADE - The ignored locomotive

Postby KEG » Thu Dec 06, 2012 8:37 pm

It´s hardly a year ago, when Steve introduced the DECADE, a model to celebrate 1o years of Gn 15. It never made the Loco Shed.

I seems, only three of these have ever been built. Here is one of them

One of the few, if not the only one, with Gn15 mice on board.

Similar style, but no it was an all new cab for this loco.

No mice in this one Juergen, built by Stuart Reeve and running on Ruggin Manor, built by Richard Andrews and now owned by Stuart, taken at MOMING2011

Obviously no longer available as it was a Limited Edition, one currently being built a few miles North of me.
If anyone really wants one PM me as I have a couple stashed away.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

My loco meanwhile looks a bit battered, but I finally attached a nameplate and a frontlamp:

G'day Juergen

Surly more than three :shock:

Here's one that I use on my lighthouse layout.

Assembled but maybe not fully finished (is any model :?: )

Although I will admit to another one still hiding in the 'to-do' box.

Cheers

The Wilfie Brothers brought the old DECADE out of the shed again:

They had to transport a larger log to the saw mill:

Of course, you need a brakeman for such heavy loads:

Logging skips were made by Ralph Brammer, primed with modern options rust in the local workshop.

Unfortunately I missed out on this one. It's a real pity it's no longer available.
Any chance of another limited run Steve?

What is the difference in the Link Nevadablue Ken quotes, to the link, mentioned in the first contribution at the top of this thread?

I had a go at scratch building something similar a while back but could not get the shape of the cab cured roof correct. Maybe another kit will appear for the "20" year.

Sorry, I should have noted... since the 'move' the link in the first post just doesn't work. It refers to the same thread, but that particular location doesn't exist any more. When I finally found the reference thread, I just copied the new link to make it easier to find.

And... the DNS lookup just failed for me AGAIN. I'll post this as soon as it comes back. Grrr...

And... now that link DOES work. I give up. :oops:
