Panelcraft

Fowler before painting

Fowler after painting

 

I have been working for just short of forty years as a traditional coach painting and coach builder in the motor vehicle industry.  Much of that time has been working in Classic and Vintage restoration. 

As my interest turned to Model Engineering, I decided to go into 16mm loco painting. I have been painting locos in gauge 1, gauge 3 and up to 7 ¼ locos [ see photos above. ] I paint them, like Roundhouse, in two pack paint which is hard wearing and heat resistant. I have found conventional paint comes off from gas spills when filling.  I also repair loco metal work including repairing soldering (silver soldering, TIG and MIG  welding for larger projects), straightening panels and riveting etc.  I enjoy helping people to get their pride and joys back to their best, so give me a call to discuss your project.  Graham Pearce 07802803159

RIVERDALE locomotives

 

Amy is an impressive locomotive
Riverdale Locomotives, based in the Netherlands, supplies coal-fired locomotives and kits based on a new principle. The well thought simple design allows for long running times just as with gas-fired locomotives without topping up coal and water. A damper keeps the pressure at a constant value with any trainload and speed. Full remote control including the damper and an optional whistle is possible. All this combines the ease of a gas-fired locomotive with the fun of building a coal fire.

 

The cab lay out is very neat and leaves ample room for a driver and a fireman. The water gauge and blower hand wheel are close to scale. All radio control equipment is fully hidden except for the regulator servo.


Elke is our little favorite

 

The coal-fired Amy and Elke are based on the proven Roundhouse Lady Ann resp. Billy chassis and body. Amy and Elke are also available as kits and can be built with a Riverdale coal-fired boiler kit and Roundhouse kits & parts which need to be purchased separately. Converting an existing Billy or Lady Ann is also possible. . Visit us at: www.riverdale-loco.com
