I have to agree with Mr S.Chimney here.

In my opinion the rollers look better with the TE boiler and the TEs look better with the roller boiler.

See i love long boilered rollers but arent too keen on shorty TEs



Jon - great long roller. yes it needs tanks but it is terrific.

Patrick, Its all about proportions. I agree with you that short TE don't look right. I think you need to shrink some of the parts to look more like small and light engines, eg narrower wheels, narrower chimney.

Looks really nice, Jon

Patrick, it's about quartering. All measures halved is harmony

The workshop is easy to set up, having the Se2a in the middle of the brass, and the Mazak flywheel versions meant I could run either by just changing the band on the flywheel of the engine, this set up was dismantled and will be made smaller powered by the MM2, (with a repainted base. As the Se2a will have other duties this year at Armley, once I've rebuilt the meccano crane

Here it is last year at home

That is looking good Job.  Best time of the day is when everyone else has gone to bed.  Just make sure the smell does not waft to wake them up until you have hidden the evidence!
