I have managed to complete my first locomotive for the Riber Valley Railway a diesel electric locomotive named Manifold. This is my first attempt at Kitbashing and this is a fairly drastic butchering of the Dapol Railbus kit mounted on an elderly but unused Piko chassis which I have had in a drawer for several years.
Its not perfect but for a first try I am pretty chuffed.
Sometime in the future the railbus will be attacked again to produce a version of the diesel railcars found on the truely magnificent County Gate model set on the Lynton & Barnstaple.
However that is a way down the road as apart from anything else I need to build a layout to run things on.
The ex works pictures are below.
