Re: Livery query, C.R. 310A.

The fact it was scrapped in 1895 I very much doubt this or any of her type ever received the "light" blue livery. I would suggest its most likely a light effect making it look different at first glance as its not just a difference between the loco and tender there's some big shade veriations between...

Quintinshill anniversary

Just a thought chaps today is the 104 anniversary of the Quintinshill disaster. We should all give a thought for all the people who lost there lives in what was Brittains worst rail disaster.

Re: St. Fillans station track plan

Thanks Jim good to know but I was hoping for the track and signal plane for this station only.
Getting the book as fine as I'm sure it is and if funds allowed I would is a very expensive way of getting the basic information I would like on St Fillan station alone.

Re: Ballest over turnout sleepers

Thanks Jim I figured as much but it was more a case of whishfull thinking than anything else.

Still I've got a few other ideas one being to replace some plastic sleeper with copper clad ones to get the look right
If done in sections I won't loose the turnouts geometry.

Ballest over turnout sleepers

Hi chaps your advice please. I want to lay a bit of track using Peco track which will include a couple of large radius turnouts. Being off the shelf Peco the turnouts will have no interlaced sleepers. My question is, is there a case for ballesting over the sleeper to disguise this fact. The period w...

Re: New Layout Blog - Crawford

That all looks brilliant Ross I especally enjoyed the videos.
Is there any chance of some close up photos of the lifting section by the door in both the open and closed position with maybe a description on how you went about it?

Re: TPO pick up net

Well I've been through the WCJS book the carriage book and a third book I have on TPOs and found nothing to indicate whether the TPOs No. 2 and 4 were fitted with nets but then again apart from the caption with the drawing in the carriage book I've found no evidence that they didn't. So is the state...

TPO pick up net

In the carriage book on P313 figure 42.2 shows a plan of a 6 wheel TPO possible No. 2 or 4 and the caption states although fitted with gear to drop off mail bags it has no pick up net. The question is did it have a pick up net but is just not shown on here for the clarity of the plans or did it run ...

Re: Drummond "3" layer coach paneling help please

Thanks Mike, I think I see it now, the trouble was I was looking for three layers of paneling but it's actually really only two layers with a very heavy beading on the lower section.
