I'm not sure what classification or types of wagons and I'm certain with one being arrows of indecision it is out of era for me but what era are they all from?

Going from L to R:-
4/5
?
7 (guess)
8
7/8

Farish era references are as follows:-
1   1804 - 1875 Pioneering
2   1876 - 1922 Pre-Grouping
3   1923 - 1947 The Big four - LMS, GWR, LNER and SR
4   1948 - 1956 British Railways Early Emblem
5   1957 - 1966 British Railways Late Crest
6   1967 - 1971 British Railways Blue Pre Tops
7   1972 - 1982 British Railways Blue Tops era
8   1982 - 1994 British Railways Sectorisation
9   1995 onwards - Post Privatisation

This rather handsome two-tone Sulzer Type 4 has just been unloaded off the boat from Blighty, from whence it was exported as a duff Duff at a knockdown price, but a few minutes with a gear puller and a bulk pack of Bachmann gears soon fixed that.

Weekend raid on Transport Models of Preston:



The loco was a complete impulse buy, but will go with my early BR 64xx. I can feel a 1950s micro layout somewhere in the aether...

Coincidentally, my class B tanks arrived on the same day.

That two-tone 47 looks fantastic, Ian! My favourite livery for that loco.  :thumbsup:

Glad to hear you got it working nicely.

I just got one of these second hand.



Yes, I surprised even myself! I've always thought them ugly (boxy).  Always been a bit put off buying one because you have to feed three decoders into them if you want to run them DCC. Not really my era either.......but then one popped up at a temptingly low price.

And you know what? It looks tons better in the flesh than it does in photos. The tiny lit destination sign is fabulous as are all the lights in general. It runs smoothly and looks excellent in its livery. Boy, was I wrong about this model. I'm enjoying watching it trundle around my layout.

Alec.

So here is my obligatory post showing my TINGS haul. Or at least most of it.



The Loadhaul 56 and 3 Silver Bullets are direct from Dapol stand. I so nearly got the 56 last year, so I am lucky they were still available. Runs well and all lights work.

The NGS Shark is another thing I have fancied for a while, and will actually be my first NGS kit build. When that happens who knows....

Finally the three High Cubes are to compliment my Revolution order for KFAs.

For a person that has been less than complimentary about British N gauge Steam locos I had a great day today buying three of them, (cor what a turncoat)

I sold all my Nscale American gear today for a decent sum

Here is my loco fleet that I acquired this week, don't know how old the Black 5 is but it runs great.

Good decision to go British! I couldn't see your new investment, but steam is great!

Sorry it's a bit late but I thought I'd share this after being shamed by Railgooner for not posting in this thread for so long.

A few weeks ago, I purchased this from the 2mm Association.



But then I had to ruin those lovely etches by turning them into this while on holiday in lovely North Yorkshire...



It's running on N Gauge wheels supplied by the 2mm Association with axles to the correct length to work. It's not quite ready for painting yet but there are only a couple more bits to add.

Continuing my penance following my shaming at the hands of RailGooner, I would like to share the contents of a package that arrived from the 2mm Association about half an hour ago.



There are three NER Hopper wagons with associated etched chassis and two GER cattle wagons with etched chassis plus one spare for the assembled cattle wagon wagon at the back. I built the first cattle wagon a few years ago but screwed up the chassis - its been sitting waiting for a replacement ever since!

Or course, as an excuse to break of from CAD work, I had to assemble one of the hoppers; just to make sure everything fits you understand!  8)

By the way, the hoopers look like somebody ran out of plastic half way though and used a different colour from that point. Makes for some interesting patterns that'll probably be best covered with paint!  :smiley-laughing:

I ended up coming back from TINGS with yet more wagons to build 3 x Vanwide 1 GWR toolvan and a GWR Beetle special cattle wagon - so much for clearing the backlog!

Alex

@Atso
Steve,
Being somewhat thick when it comes to wagons I didn't query whether 'hooper' should read 'hopper' but having seen 'hopper' in your own wagon thread it seems I am not as thick as I thought ;)
