Re: Railway Engineer Magazine Archive

Edition 67 of The True Line has an article produced by Jim Watt on the subject. The drawings from the original Railway Engineer Magazine are reproduced and this shows that the operating handle did indeed extend to the other side of the wagon.

Hi Scott

Bolt Head Machine
Tony,

Thank you very much for posting those pictures and providing an explanation. It looks to be a far more professional way of producing bolt heads than my current method, I may well give it a go.

Re: TLM RY Pickering Traders Wagon

My method for 4mm is similar but I punch out little discs about 0.33 mm in diameter from 10 thou plastikard sheet using a steel wire punch in a press. Tony, I’d be very interested in knowing more about your punch. Do you have a picture and can you tell me more about how you made it? Thanks, Scott

Robert Addie & Co Wagon Numbering

Whilst looking at photographs in the wagon book I stumbled across an interesting photograph that contained a small number of Robert Addie & Co wagons in the background (Plate 15.15). At first glance nothing appears to be out of the ordinary with the wagons but if you look closely at the numbers on t...

Re: TLM RY Pickering Traders Wagon

Thank you all for the kind comments, they are much appreciated. Many years ago two things inspired me to have a go at scratchbuilding my own wagons. The first was marvelling at the beautiful wagons built by fellow East of Scotland member, Ray Nolton. The second was Simon De Souza's series of article...

Re: Scratch-building a 262 Class 0-4-2ST

Alan, Thank you kindly for the explanation. What I particularly like about your sheets is they way you have sculpted them to look like they have been folded over, tucked in and tied down. I have a few wagons of my own which I intend to cover with Tarpaulin and will certainly give your method a go. S...

Re: Scratch-building a 262 Class 0-4-2ST

A lovely bit of modelling, Alan. I particularly like your wagon sheets, any chance of giving us a quick description on how you made them?

Re: Wagon Colours

Rather than list all the publications in your possession I think it may be better to list which particular private traders wagon you wish to know the colour of. I have just recently completed a model of an Archibald Russell 'Tannochside Colliery' wagon and according to the Caledonian Railway wagon b...
