Modelling Tip Of The Day – 42

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller. Today’s tip is:

Two locos in one

If you only view your locos from side whilst running on a layout, & you’re on a tight budget here is a way to increase your loco fleet for minimal cost. On one side of your loco renumber it, thus replicating two locos in the same class. So for example, you have diesel loco 37 057 remove the number off one side & renumber it say 37 058. So when running & viewed from one side you’ll see it as 37 057, & when turned round & viewed from the other side you’ll see it as 37 058. This way you can expand your fleet without actually buying new locos. Check out the following loco transfer manufacturers such as:

  • Fox Transfers
  • Modelmaster
  • HMRS
  • Railtec
  • Replica Railways

They produce both waterside & pressfix type transfers. The other option is to produce your own using your computer & computer printer transfer paper.   Happy Modelling.
