Re: New CR negative

Ah yes, I should have probably looked up the allocation of the locomotive. (it was rather late when I posted this) Such a lovely machine, shame they were not as good as planned.

Ex-CR 294 Class 'Jumbo' No. 67237 & Ex-CR 60 Class 'Greyback' No. 54639 in the early 1950s. If the CRA is interested in using it for a...

Location in this photo

Hello everyone, I recently purchased this photograph and was unclear about the location. It looks to be a CR 191 Class pulling into Tyndrum on the C&O. Thoughts? https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/57840094_10219235462694341_7584609861858492416_n.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-1.xx&o...

Re: Sound for CR locos

David, We have been involved with SouthWest Digital, who hoped that recordings made during the Caledonian weekend at Bo'ness would enhance what they had confirmed could be put on the chip. Victorian Lad, whose work is no stranger to this Forum, had arranged for such recordings to be made. We await ...

Re: 498 Class Wheel Details

Im curious to know how these locomotives became known as "Beetlecrushers"? Where did the nickname come from and why was it given to them?

Re: 498 Class Wheel Details

Jim, I think Mike's picture is pretty conclusive, but here is a pre-group shot from a low angle (Dawsholm/ Maryhill area I think) of CR No 510, and 2 later close-ups, LMS 16153 and BR 56154 (ex CR Nos 527 & 528), just to confirm nothing changed.

Re: Caledonian 264/611 Class 0-4-0ST

How is this? I have one which is full vermillion with lining on the border but doesnt have the CR letters and one without the CR letters? Which one would be best option and possibly more accurate? I dont think there would be any room for the number one the bufferbeam? Kris https://i.pinimg.com/origi...

Re: Caledonian 264/611 Class 0-4-0ST

So a full vermillion bufferbeam and lining on the beam going across the running board? Would there be any room for CR on the bufferbeam? Its very small and would be a tight sqeeze.

Re: Caledonian 264/611 Class 0-4-0ST

Hello, Here is an updated look at the pug, I still need to fix the lamp irons on the bufferbeam for this livery, I decided to go with a full black bufferbeam because I could not find any material that said it was painted any other colour. Texturing is about 75% done. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/2...

Re: Caledonian 264/611 Class 0-4-0ST

Here is a look of my computer generated model so far, I included the variant with the rear sandbox and McIntosh numberplates. As you can see I am still texturing it but I need some details of the front and rear bufferbeam to make or not make lining and the colour. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/e4/5...
