Wagons with a through pipe were painted bauxite but the end of the brake pipe was a different colour to identify it as not having automatic train brakes fitted. There was a limit to the numbers of through piped wagons that could be used in the fitted section of the train.

Hi all,

Lots of really useful information in this thread about braking, train marshalling and so on.  I wonder whether it's worth putting in a thread of its own, so those who aren't necessarily interested in the Revolution Class B tankers don't miss it?

Cheers

Ben A.

Excellent suggestion  :thumbsup:. A lot of the information is irrelevant to me, (at the moment), but it would make a lot of sense to have the information in a dedicated place for people who are looking for such information.

I've no objection if it is moved to the thread that I started yesterday.

I'm no expert-its just things I have picked up from various sources, including past railway men, and books/web articles. But I hope it has helped some people; but I also acknowledge there may be some errors, though I have checked as far as possible.

Over to the administrators.........

Hello all,

Ran our painted Class B samples on Only Me's Tormouth at the Canterbury MRC show today, and will be again tomorrow.

Not sure if they're marshalled correctly.... barrier wagon either side but maybe not needed for Class B tanks not running with Class As?

Regent in a mixed goods train heading east:


Two branded and one unbranded Essex tank heading west over the Tormouth viaduct:


And a pair of molasses tanks in this consist of a short mixed freight:


Cheers

Have seen pictures of a derailment in 1963 of a mixed freight on the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton where Class B tanks did have barriers.  Each set of three tanks had their own barriers, loaded 16t coal trucks, so it was

barrier
3 tanks
barrier
barrier
3 tanks
barrier
etc

Oh and the train also contained a Class A tank but I couldn't work out what barriers it had.  Most of the derailed wagons were in the dirt at that point and were quite muddled up if not in lots of pieces.

My 'Molasses' tanks look brilliant, (at least I think they are part of my order).   :thumbsup:

Could be mine too, but I don't want mine played with, so I'll happily wait for the container

What is it with these Molasses tanks...they really are lovely and a real rule 1 purchase for me! (farthest south i think they got was Avonmouth)
