So, decided going to attempt to enter the challenge. Have been in discussions with Natalie about various ideas and making use of her knowledge and resources. I think together we’ve formulated a possible idea.
No plan as yet, but progressing with idea still.
Liable to be based around a LT Steam shed, with a pannier tank involved as well as maybe some sort of battery loco depending upon what ends up being able to fit etc when I’ve gotten hold of some materials, etc.
Main criteria is as cheap as possible as am skint, but have a Mainline 57xx Pannier tank and some Dapol 16t minerals that should do the job as well as a Street Level Models card kit for a ballast motor.
