I was so excited when the postie came I went to look through the peephole in the door and headbutted it...  :dunce:


:laughabovepost:

Sorry, Luke. Shouldn't laugh but just had to.

I managed to get hold of another Graham Farish Stanier LMS coach for my 1930s Pines Express:



And also this strange little kit of a full brake. It's full white metal with a lumpy roof and vinyl side panels, and isn't the best construction I've seen, but it'll do as an occasional No 7 coach for the Pines. It was a bargain, so I certainly can't complain.



Anyone know its origin?

I was running around, trying to make sure I was presentable, nearly picked up a fleece instead of a dressing gown, then had to make sure my dressing gown was actually secured...  :-[

Had an early 30th birthday party last night; in amongst the single malts and 35mm film, one couple very thoughtfully brought me a weathered triple pack of PCAs to add to the existing (short) rake - how cool is that!

The Cavndish kits had etched bogies, an aluminium floor, aluminium roof and fairly crude etched truss rods with the battery box on the etch as a flat plate and not much else.

Later versions of them added the white metal detailing parts, proper battery boxes, dynamo etc, and the later ones still have a fold up etched floor rather than the aluminium one.

The really early ones are so old in the history of N that they didn't have rapido couplers!

Nice!  I fancy the parcels set but thought it could do with an extra GUV, didn't realise blue parcels vehicles were available as individual items.


I had a look on there, and although I stand to be corrected by the Mk.1 hoarder  ::) it looks like only one BG and one cl24 left as ex-set.

could find no listing for 'new' GUVs in newspaper markings.

Happy to help :) We only split a certain number of sets and the GUV was by far the most popular of the split items and subsequently all the split ones have now sold. I would be surprised if we split some more sets down because the full sets are still selling well, but you never know

I think mine must be a Mk1 version. The battery box is flat, and the bogies are probably etched (there was some white metal showing through the paint). The bogies are attached to the body with a screw, one of which is fairly slack, making for a pretty wobbly bogie!

This arrived Saturday so after a hasty sorting out of electrics managed to run it with my rake of Overton Cars.

All stock is Athearn. The loco is running a Lenz Silver chip hidden in the tender.

Don't have a completed loop yet under the lower end tunnel(beyond the platform), but hopefully will do that over Christmas. Work permitting.

The front does look a bit like Rod Hull's Emu though.

Probably in the wrong thread here, but in relation to my post above, does anyone know what a suitable locomotive would be to pair with my new maroon inspection coach? I thought it would look really cool with my green Class 14, but as Etched Pixels has pointed out, the 14's didn't really work anywhere. Indeed, (and I'll dig it out and scan it, if I can find it).... I came across a Class 14 sitting in an NCB yard (as EP says) way back in 1972 as I was wondering around taking pictures for my college dissertation about the decline of coal mining in the North East.

So any suggestions appreciated.

In relation to my new maroon Stove R, same thing..... what do I run it with? Apparently they ceased being connected to passenger trains in 1959?
