The full 4-car version hits the tracks.





.....and back to 3 cars again (I seem to recall they were reduced to three cars about the same time as they were repainted blue/grey).

Now, if someone could cast up some ends as good as those, I have some really nice artwork for these units ready to go vinyl.

I quite fancy doing the Greater Manchester Class 504. As with a lot of the more obscure EMU that I produce, I will probably be the only one, though...  :(

Presumably, given top contact third rail pick-up shoes (instead of side contact), and some gadgetry to make them work on 750v instead of their preferred 1200v, and a splash of aquafresh of course, these units could have been quite at home on the former SR.

Hi

You and me both. I did try to get just the ends from Amsies but with little success.

Cheers

Paul

After scratch building my own ends, managed to get a set of etches from Worsley Works for the 304 for a couple of quid!

Will be used on the next set when the 310, 309 and 303 are finished!

Model looks great!!!

The two layer decal system was developed long before vinyl cutters were around, the white layer printed on an ALPS printer.

The 308 end was 3D designed and cut out on a hobby CNC machine, long before Shapeways was around.

Paul, I apologise if you had trouble contacting me, I took a break from the model railway scene for a number of reasons.

I'm in the process of sorting out my old N gauge bits.  I may well still have the master around somewhere :-)
