For me it really depends on the actual wagon proposed.
If it is marked "NGF 10 years", I will not be in because I feel it would look odd in a consist.
To refer to the forum, we could imagine a fictive company, e.g. N. Gafo for N Gauge Forum. With #10 as a possible road number.
For the wagon I would prefer a GPV from Dapol. For the livery I would avoid black and grey and go for red or dark green.
A plank wagon would also be 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.

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:

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:)
