Your Shell tankers look good parked, Puddles, so I'm sure they'll look terrific rewheeled and rolling. It was so easy to change the wheels, I don't know why I didn't do it before. I suppose that I simply didn't realize how easy it was. I also think that I was scared that I'd damage the 50 year old plastic while prising out the old wheels. I've got some wagons with metal bogies and changing those wheels will be rather more demanding.

I agree Glencairn. It was a most satisfying enterprise. 🙂

Summer Comes to the Shankly and Gdynia Railway

I've been doing an online course for the last ten days, so I haven't had much time for the model railway, just a little modelling and I managed to take some photos, including these.

Many thanks Chops. I've admired your photos and videos, so I'm chuffed to get some words of appreciation from you.

I gave the Cromwell tank a run around on a wagon the other day. I should have been doing my online training course, but a little break is good for the soul. The two long green transporter wagons are not actually vehicle carriers, but are part of the Triang Battle Space series. One of them came with a very large (nuclear) bomb, which is long since lost. I assume that it was the original load although I got them second hand, so it may not have been. These were rewheeled, so it's a grand sight for me to see them rolling smoothly with military load. Now back to my course.

Good choice of load for the wagon, lot safer to carry a tank on your railway than a nuclear 💣 bomb😁.
Imagine the mess if it went off.

It does not take me long to do five minutes work.

I can't argue with that Puddles. Total Wipe Out. On that subject, I have seen OO models of British Nuclear Fuels radioactive materials wagons, but I really don't fancy those on my layout. I'll stick to bad old fashioned coal wagons. On a more pleasant note than nuclear catastrophe, here are some more photos.
