The Isle of Westland Railway

It's better by train.......

Rolling stock

P&J kits in the main with a few Accucraft L&B 4 wheel wagons. all have been 'detailed',painted and weathered. 


The aim is to portray wagons carrying the effects of wear and tear through use and the fact that the P&J kits are wooden helps enormously here. 


When looking at pictures of the prototype I generally find that they did not have the interior of the wagon painted. Why bother when it would not be seen by an onlooker? In addition, different wagons carry a record of their usage on the wooden interior with surfaces and colouration reflecting the loads that they have carried. Each of my wagons is slightly different for this reason and some have a small part remaining of the load or packaging............. representing the fact that customers do not always make much effort to leave them clean after use.


PJ models kit. Opening doors on this 'road van' allows for the interior to be detailed and George the Guard added surrounded by a large mix of  items for delivery along the line. The footboard appears to have been hit by something.............why is it that such features are only noticed when you look at the pictures you have taken!

There are over 20 of these regauged and adapted Bachmann hoppers. The origin of the design is the three foot guage East Broad Top Railroad in the USA.

A rake of coaches built from Brandbright kits. These were designed to be 4 wheelers but I have added bogies.
