Re: London Road 123 kit

Fished out of the 'To Do' pile. Apart from a few bits of wire and the odd nut and bolt I think this is all the bits of the LRM kit (there are a few of Caley Jim's bits in the same box for other projects !) 20201012_220346.jpg 20201012_220001.jpg 20201012_215931.jpg 20201012_215841.jpg 20201012_21573...

Re: Breakdown Vans

I think that's either the same riding van in both photos (7 years apart) or the D516 in the TL pic was replaced by an identical vehicle. It features in another 1966 pic in volume 7 of "LMS Engine Sheds", interestingly the Thompson BZ in the TL pic is still there but the CR tool van has gone. Volume ...

Re: CR COUPLING RODS IN 4MM

I'd be interested in universal rods in 4mm please. Potentially half a dozen sets based on current requirements.

Ah, thank you. Not long enough to reach Wigtownshire in the 1950s then !

Re: New RTR mineral wagon

Yes, Thank you Dave (L). I'm with t'other Dave here too, close enough to not worry me. I'm grateful to Mr Swain for pointing out shortcomings in RTR models so I can make an informed judgement (Dapol Stove and brake tender - no thanks; Oxford mineral - close enough for me) but he does go on a bit. No...

Re: New RTR mineral wagon

Incidentally, there is a colour photo of the Wilson and Clyde version in one of the mags I was leafing through this lunchtime (Hornby Mag I think). The crown plates and other solebar ironwork are picked out in black but I can't tell from the photo whether they have picked out mouldings in black or j...

Re: New RTR mineral wagon

I apologise, I confess to being responsible for pointing Mr Swain at this page (and in particular Mr Macdonald's endorsement) from another site where was giving the wagon his characteristic shoeing based solely on the grainy photo in Oxford's own website. In particular I pointed out that the pre-pro...

Re: RM web wishlist poll

Yes, the Caley showing in the LMS group was encouraging. Unfortunately we are still up against this attitude, published in MREmag for 30th November: Well, well, well! Where were all the Scottish and North Eastern Region locomotives we have been told, ad nuseum, are serious gaps in the lists of RTR l...

Hi David, I don't have a post-able photo of a twelve wheeler but I can point you at this, from Niall Fergusson in response to my own query about Grampian BTKs in BR livery: http://www.crassoc.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=397 Well, I don't have a photo of a real one but there is this, based on a ...

Thanks, I will do. I can't help with the numbers I'm afraid, the numbers all start 55xxx by the time I get interested in them !

Re: 419 kit

Assuming you mean 439, I'm interested.

Out of interest (i.e. before I go any further with mine !) apart from being awkward to re-gauge is there anything major about the inaccuracies in the DJH kit ?

Re: CR 123

Yes, and stalled in the same place. I've had the kit since it came out, it's sitting on a box with all the necessary Sharman wheels, transfers, the lot. There was even a Portescap 1219 until I nicked it for something else. For the tender I have the top half of a Tri-ang one, some Drummond axleboxes ...

Re: D97 Grampian Brake Thirds in BR Service

It isn't I'm afraid, I think that's a D122a brake third. The D97 was a twelve wheeler. However, it's a cracking photo and one for a future project, so thank you !

D97 Grampian Brake Thirds in BR Service

Evening all, Is anyone able to point me in the direction of a photo of one of these in BR condition please ? According to the notes for my recently-acquired Caley Coaches D97, eleven of these passed into BR stock, with three lasting until the early/mid 50s. Blood and custard would be nice but I'll t...
