« on: October 01, 2016, 04:06:21 pm »
Here are a few of my 1970s - 1990s UK rolling stock projects. I've got a lot more in the pipeline its just finding time to complete them!

MTV Aggregate Wagon - 3D printed body (my own design) on Peco 15ft Chassis (suitably trimmed). Decals from Railtec and Fox.


Prestwin Powder Wagon - Repainted LIMA body on modified Peco chassis. Decals from NGS sheet.


Departmental Rectank (1990s livery) - 3-D Printed body, Grafar Tank Wagon bogies (not particularly good) with low profile Parkside Dundas wheels.


Vacuum Braked 16t Wagon - Peco kit. Decals from NGS sheet.


Raillease 'Cartic' - Repainted Lima Car Transporter with kato Toyotas. Not strictly accurate but looks ok. Transfers are my own creation on Mr Decal clear transfer paper.


London Midland Region 'Drain Train' - Consists of repainted Minitrix Van, Lychett Manor Lowmac, Peco Plat Wagon and two Peco TEA tank wagons. Transfers are my own creation on Mr Decal transfer paper.


TPM VCAs & VDA

They are very nice Monty - beautifully finished.

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Hello Monty,

Some great modelling there. I am particularly interested in the MTV wagons (which became "Zander" wagons latterly), as I have found a photo of quite a rake of them, mixed with what may be MDVs amongst others, conveying lime on the Highland Mainline. It would be a good train to model being a block train of vac-fitted wagons.

They were built on 35 ton tanker chassis, so I guessed the Peco 15 foot chassis would be a good start, but struggling to get accurate measurements for the wagon bodies, where did you get the dimensions?

Thanks,
Paul

Do you have any information on the LMR "Drain Train" prototype. TIA, Brian

Hmmmm, it would be expensive to butcher the new Revolution type B 35t tank just for this chassis,  :'( unless you re-used the body!

Maybe ask Ben and Mike if they would be willing/able to produce a small batch of extra chassis to help kit builders.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

Hi, the MTV key dimensions are taken from the BR diagram book (suitably squeezed to fit the peco chassis). The rest of the details are Approximated using photos and guesstimates....it's not a scale model but looks fine at normal viewing distances.

The "drain train" is an amalgamation of several drain train prototypes from the Birmingham and Derby areas operating 1980 - 1990s. I've called it the LMR drain train so I can get away with a wider geographical area 😀

The photos for the prototypes are on Paul bartletts site. When I get more time I'll post suitable links.
