WEEK ENDING 
29 JUNE 2017

By David Carpenter

THIS WEEK


This week we have an unusual selection of articles on MEWS.


WHAT IS IT?

This one had us puzzled (a sure sign half our readers will know instantly what it is). If you can identify just what this model is, do please let us know.


CRAFTSMAN’S TOOLS

This set of craftsman’s tools made by Mark Davis shown at Bristol show a high degree of craftsmanship themselves. More to come.


THIS WEEK

Julius de Waal has  new set of drawings for us for a display model of Stephenson’s Rocket.


STUART LIGHTWEIGHT

Jason Ballamy continues his description of building a water cooled Stuart Lightweight Petrol engine. This was a quick project based on old drawings.


Metric Minnie

We were happy to hear from Julius de Waal a few weeks back that a Metric Minnie traction engine had been completed to his drawings - as published on MEWS a couple of years ago. We contacted the builder, Franco Pucci, in South Africa who is kindly giving us details of his build. He has completed the project in just two years which would be impressive for anyone. But Franco is a complete newcomer to model engineering, learning from scratch as he went along. Impressive!

 


New Garratt book

Having reprinted Peter Manning’s ‘The Darjeeling Garratt and the engine it tried to replace’ a few weeks ago, Camden Miniature Steam has now reprinted Peter’s first book ‘The Anatomy of a Garratt’. This gives lots of dimensioned CAD drawings of K1, the first Garratt, built for use in Tasmania and now running on the Welsh Highland Railway. In Garratt terms, K1 and its sister K2 were a ‘one-offs’, being compounds, and the only Garratts built with the cylinders to the middle. The Darjeeling engine was the first in what was thereafter the standard Garratt layout. This version of ‘The Anatomy of a Garratt’ has two extra pages to bring it up-to-date.



Don’t forget!
