Gladstone has finally arrived at Buggleskelly Station!  This locomotive body shell has been designed using drawings, film stills and photographs from the set of the 1937 Will Hay comedy 'Oh, Mr. Porter!'   

 

It has been designed to fit onto an Electrotren 0-6-0 chassis (a necessary compromise from the 2-4-0 that was Gladstone's basis, but the best option using an available chassis).  Modellers willing to scratchbuild a 2-4-0 chassis can still use the shell as a basis for their own project.

 

Please note, this is a freelance design based on the locomotive from the film.  The details are based on available images and film stills, but the model is not an exact replica of Gladstone due to design restraints and mininmal high quality source material, therefore some elements may differ slightly from the locomotive used in the film.

 

Length (buffer to buffer): 100mm

Width: 34mm

Height (with chassis, from rail top to chimney): 59mm

Height (with chassis, from rail top to cab roof): 45mm

 

Please choose from the following options;

  1. Unprimed. This option is as it comes from the 3D printer, after being cleaned and UV cured.  This will be the colour of the original resin and may be a peach/sand colour or grey.  The buffers, steps and chimney will be provided seperately for you to fit yourself using superglue (Loctite 406 is recommended).  The chimney sits in place without any need for glue.
  2. Primed As above but primed with a matt grey primer, ready for you to paint yourself.
  3. Hand Painted & Weathered.  The model will be hand painted and weathered to the standard shown in the photos.  The buffers & steps will be glued in place.  The chimney will not be attached to avoid damage during shipping, but it slots into place without the need for glue.  As each model is painted individually, some details may differ from those shown in the photos.

 

This model requires a motorised chassis (wheels, motor and couplings) from the Electrotren 0-6-0 model.  This is a HO scale chassis available from various retailers - search 'Electrotren 060'.  The model codes to look for include the following:

  • Electrotren E0033
  • Electrotren E0038
  • Electrotren E0039
  • Electrotren E0049
  • Electrotren ES2001
  • Electrotren HES2000
  • Electrotren HES2001 
  • Electrotren GV2004
  • Electrotren GV2005
  • Electrotren GV2017
  • Jouef HJ5003
  • Jouef HJ5004

 

The Electrotren locos are simple to open with two small screws holding the body to the chassis. The Gladstone chassis fits snugly over the motor, but Black Tack (a stronger version of Blu Tack) will be provided with the model to secure it onto the chassis.  A printed instruction sheet will also be included.

 

I have filmed a 'making of' video and a brief overview of painting the model here.

 

This model is compatible with my Buggleskelly station, signal box and wagons here.
