4mm kit/RTR model of Caley 439 class?

I am building up my stud of locos seen at Aberdeen Ferryhill during the 1950's/early 60's ...would love to be able to add a 439. Any interest from the RTR boys for such a model? The 439 was a stunning looking loco (just in the middle of reading the 419 story recently published)..surely a candidate f...

Re: Ferryhill, modification to CR water column

Interestingly I have uncovered a couple more pics at 61B taken in the mid 1950's showing the modification to the columns in place. However, equally intriguingly another pic taken of 4472 at Ferryhill in 1964 which suggests an unmodified column! I suspect the columns were modified to give increased h...

Ferryhill, modification to CR water column

I attach some pics showing what has been done to effect this modification. Not sure when the columns were modified, but suspect after WW2. Mikes Models make a passable 4mm CR column (see pic MM39), and together with some measurements made by the late Richard Chown at Lockerbie (UP), and with a littl...

Aberdeen Ferryhill, Sand Kiln Building

I attach a scan of Ferryhill’s sand drying and kindling furnace building, which remained very much as original until diesel days, when it became the bothy for the electricians! I have a question...does anyone know the purpose of the 3 openings on the West elevation, which look as if the can be opene...

Re: Ferryhill Aberdeen, Caley Depot buildings 1908

Hi Ian, many thanks for responding. A few weeks back I bought online half a dozen large file aerial views, and on consulting them yesterday, they did show significant difference in respect of the roof light shape, which tends to suggest my calculations are correct. 44794 outside 61B small.jpg 61B ro...

Re: Ferryhill Aberdeen, Caley Depot buildings 1908

Hi Jim, yes, these would be of enormous use. I would have done the same at Ferryhill, but as you know fate had me in Hong Kong at the time!
I'm also keen to have a chat with you on the subject of research, and would appreciate a phone number I could call you on please.

Ferryhill Aberdeen, Caley Depot buildings 1908

I am going near demented down here in NZ, with a conundrum that I'm sure others have faced (and no doubt solved) before me. I am building a 4mm scale model of Ferryhill, as built by the Caley in 1908 and modified over the years by LMS/BR. I have copies of original plans which were very kindly provid...

Ferryhill Steam Shed

44794 outside 61B small.jpg Well here goes! Over the past few years I have sucked as much information out of a multitude of websites, including CRA, and everyone has been super helpful. My project is a 4mm scale model of Aberdeen Ferryhill set in the late 1950's/early 1960's, which has been made so...
