I suppose it would look odd in a consist, but me that's the whole point! A bit of fun, proudly displayed. A way of saying, like they did in the seventies (remember those?) - NGF RULES THE WORLD OK  ;)

I reckon you'd sell more of wagon in an authentic livery (like the Rapps or Jones open wagons commissioned from Peco for the Warley show) than of a commemorative design saying something like 'N Gauge Forum 10th Anniversary'. A commemorative design made to look as if it could be authentic (N.G.Forum open wagon No.10?) could perhaps be the best compromise IMHO.

A headboard? I think Fox take custom orders.

Some wives might not like that on their headboard :uneasy:

Especially if they start putting their own words to 'NGF'.  :goggleeyes:

That's another spin on it. What about a normal liveried wagon, but with NGF RULEZ OK as graffiti on it :)

But that doesn't celebrate 10 years, and I doubt a graffiti artist would bother about a 10 year achievement :no:

A 10 year old graffiti artist may be bothered about a 10 year achievement  :thumbsup:

To follow the construction of my layout "Longcroft" from day 1, you'll have to catch the fish below first by clicking on it which isn't difficult right now as it's frozen!

In your case is that 'No Groaners Forever'........ Meaning the jokes thread, not anything else if you know what I mean. OMG got myself into a right twist here, I'll shut up.

As a modeller of foreign stuff any British wagon is of little actual use to me but I'd still have one to support the forum  :D  :thumbsup:   

I'm not bothered about commemorative wagons looking out of place on the layout as that's not where I'd be putting them: I have several from N Club International, Trix Club, Peco, Arnold, and others and they sit in a display cabinet along with other rarities.  The only "souvenir" wagons to make an appearance on the tracks are some beer wagons I decaled up myself for my operating team, one or two of those escaped to collectors and I saw one sell on ebay for about 50 Euros a couple of years ago  :D 




I quite like the idea of a mug, but that's another type of souvenir of which I already have too many and I don't actually drink tea/coffee anyway.

I like the idea of a road vehicle, something which might be seen anywhere at home or abroad. N Club International did a little van some years ago, one of those is lurking on the layout to be discovered!

a) Do we really want a commemorative plate?

or

b) Is that the contraption that the waitress in Betty's Cafe pushes about?

(Sorry!  :no:)

I love Bettys.  And look forward to getting back to one.
