Well, no news from SteamerDave still.  I'm just waiting for Adam @ Electra to send me some more vinyl's and I'll apply them to another coach.  I've asked it to have different numbers on this one, just in case the other one comes back on the tour.  :)

Such a shame to have lost the old coach :(

Would it be possible to be added for the new coach? If possible to have it before TINGS so the coach could be displayed for the show?

its funny cos i was actually thinking of making a rake of blood and custards with n gauge forum on the side of it, which can be used at various layouts at exhibitions....you beat me to it with...a coach....

i might do it anyways for when our nymr layout gets done and into the exhibition circuit!

i wouldnt mind seeing the new coach for myself mind....as i might actually change my livery to the green and cream livery ;)

The new coach has made it to the USA, and Mustermark has confirmed its arrival. :claphappy:

Has there been an album made up of the photographs taken where it has been?
That would be a good thing to have  :thumbsup:

cheers John.

All of the photo's are in this thread, but it has become a little full of posts.  An album would be a good idea.

In that case, since I opened my big mouth, I will go through this thread and sort all the pictures into an album.
This will not happen today but over a period of days  :D

cheers John.

The NGF Coach arrived in Reading as part of an historic heritage train and I have been to Boots on the High St to get my films developed.

The N Gauge Forum organized this "Steam and Diesel Legends Tour" and provided the special coach for its members to ride in.  Tickets were 1.50 members and 1,500 non-members, with lunch in the Platform 4 Buffet (ham sandwich, plain crisps and a coke) included.

Mallard, holder of the steam speed record since 1938, lead the train into Reading.

As previously posted Western Zephyr held the diesel speed record back in 1974 and was at the rear of the train as it approached Reading from Paddington.  After the Lancaster fly past, the heritage train trundled very sedately into a busy Reading station where Western Zephyr took over at the front.

Great pictures Mark.  Not too sure on the price for non-members!  :o  :smiley-laughing:  The Lancaster looks excellent with the 'moving' propellers.  Where do I get them?

I have collected all the photographs together and put them into one album as this thread has become more comments than pictures.

Please, who ever gets the coach, post your pictures here so people can comment then I will copy them over to the album.

I would like the album to be clear of comments apart from the members comments about their own photographs.

The link for the album: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?action=media;sa=album;in=210

Thanks John.

Scotsoft is right...

I actually print out yellow circles the same diameter as the supplied propellers so that the edge of the circle is yellow and the middle is white.

Then on my inkjet i print out onto the transparency film that has a kind of texture that absorbs the ink.  This is not quite clear and helps to give the impression of the propeller blades.

Only caution is that you cannot get the textured bit wet at all... The film stops being see through and you need to replace it.  Can be annoying!
