Re: Model Wagon Company

I have discovered a copy of the price list & catalogue in an unbuilt box. The castings & box are clean & pristine, some might be tempted to keep it unbuilt, but this will appear an an extra CR cattle wagon.

Steve, I imagine it was handled with the wagon charges, but I don't know whether these were done on a weekly or monthly basis.

Blue saloon instructions

Does anyone have any kit instructions for the blue saloon ? I have a sheet of etches and could probably figure out where they all go, but some instructions would be useful. Not sure if it is one of John B's etches. I have various photos & the diagram of the interior in Mike's Carriage Book. Many tha...

Thanks Jim, wouldn't the CR use W/H for the express by preference ? Could there be any reason not to ?

Re: Quintinshill, TV programme.

One point puzzled me while reading the troop train composition in the TL article - approximately 1/2 of the troop train was Westinghouse piped only, so would be un-braked. Was there a speed limit for such trains, or have I got things wrong ?

Looking at the epilepsy theory, I think this deserves further investigation, do we have a medical expert in the house ?
