Less than two months to Railex and I still have a very long list of jobs.
A top priority is to get the locos to run well. 1649 has benefitted from another session with the maestro (thanks, Allan) and I’m gaining experience all the time. 57587 now has added pick-ups and runs as well backwards as forwards. Especially when I bent the vacuum pipe alongside the valance out of the way of the coupling rods, ditto the middle steps. 54458 has been fitted with suppression and has had extra pick-ups fitted.
A first for bogie pick-ups
A capacitor is soldered between the motor terminals and the inline resistors are connected to a piece of 4-track stripboard – I really should do this sort of work on first building a loco: retro-fitting is much more difficult. I have left the middle two tracks for future use, though…
