  Lambing Flat Chief Train Controller

Location: My preference....... Central West NSW, circa 1955....
Ixium have just announced the new loco...

A low frame NSWGR 32 Class.

Hmmm... Why? So much else could have been done...

Are you kidding!

One of the most important NSWGR steam locomotives and a satisfactory model has never been offered commercially (a discrete veil should be drawn over the two brass versions... )

This is great news for NSWGR steam modellers!

Not to mention that they intend to do both superheated and saturated versions, plus the two styles of front footplate (I have drawn their attention to the two types of cab roof overhang... )

If you can't tell the difference between a 'low framer' and a rebuilt version, that is your problem... Wink

Is there any sort of list regarding the cab overhang?  

Personally I am glad to have them as I would not mind a TOR rerun for another high frame, but also would like a couple of the low ones, while I don't need them, I loved the Pcl, even though the old framed ones were rougher than the others.

As far as I can remember without actually checking, the first 50 were delivered with the short roof overhang and the rest with the wider version. I have no idea if the cabs moved around through overhauls or if they stayed with their original locomotives. I expect Ron Preston's 32 class book will have all the details.

I don't remember reading anything in the book but will recheck. IIRC 46 & 55 were two I worked on with the short overhang, certainly fit the early footplate versions.

It is more likely the cabs could have changed when new frames were constructed, but during heavy overhauls at the LES, the roofs were removed from the cab sides for any rust repair & replacement of timbers, that replacement had to be done off the cab, although I remember 3127 which had terrible leaks in the roof having new timber & welding carried out at Enfield but that's not a 32cl
