Thanks @maridunian - I will be using crimson which I hope will give a reasonable rendition of the original.

Kind regards

No worries @dannyboy - this is one of the reasons I try to keep most of my posts relating to HOLLERTON JUNCTION in this thread.

Hi Folks,

Can anyone please advise me on how to get into a Dapol Maunsell coach?  I have removed the bogies and the additional two screws but the chassis and body will still not part ways.  This is one of the Light Bar ready versions - not sure if that makes any difference?  I could only find the following on the web:

"You just need to remove the *whole* body. Unclip the ends and then run a thumbnail between the bottom of the body and the running board and the long clips in the centre of the coach will part. It should come off fairly easily. I've fitted 16 light bars and not had any issues removing or refitting the bodies."

This does not seem to work unless I need to be more forceful - I do not want to brake the coach.

Many thanks

Paddy

Exactly that way @Paddy I've just stripped a 4set of mine to weather and you can leave the bogies on.

Undo and remove the tiny screws behind each bogie

Holding the coach, I use mobile phone pry bars, lever between chassis solebar and coach side, again these chassis clip into glazing panels so work from the middle of the coach above truss work and go to each end.

This is best done over an empty ice cream tub to collect anything that pings off!!

Be AWARE these light bar ready ones have the socket in the seating panel and the wiring soldered onto pads on the chassis underneath. Not much movement in the chassis or seating but bodys come clear.

Replacement just requires a little persuasion once everything is square.

2 screws to tighten up and shes good to roll again

Thanks @exmouthcraig - that worked perfectly and I see what you mean about the soldered wires.  It was a bit nerve racking removing the glazing but actually it came out OK using a phone pry tool.

You are a star!

:NGF:

Many thanks

CHIPMAN’S WEEDKILLING TRAIN - PART #2

Cost to date = £45.85

Today's update consists of:

1. Disassembled and stripped the factory finish from the second PECO TTA.  This wagon came from Rails of Sheffield and cost £11.45.

2. Disassembled (thanks @exmouthcraig) a Dapol Maunsell BR Brake 3rd Class coach.  This coach came from Rails of Sheffield and cost £22.95.

3. Tested Humbrol Acrylic Spray Crimson #20 which is a good match to the Dapol coach.

4. Worked on artwork for the Chipman tanks (see images below).  Decided on a font called Bitstream Vera Sans in bold which is a good match for the prototype.  I also came across a very useful site that gives you the RGB values etc. for Humbrol paint (https://encycolorpedia.com/).  When the images below are printed on glossy photo paper the match is almost exact - very useful.


Photo 1. Company name for side 1 of the TTA tank wagon.


Photo 2. Service name for side 2 of the TTA tank wagon.

You can now see why I went for two tank wagons as when they are next to each other you get "CHIPMAN CHEMICAL COMPANY LTD" "INDUSTRIAL WEEDKILLING SERVICE".

 ;)

Comments and suggestions always welcome.

Many thanks

My pleasure Mike.  One of the main reasons for creating the HOLLERTON JUNCTION thread is to share useful information with other modellers.

Kind regards

Hi Folks,

Another question which I hope someone can help me with.  Does anyone know what the glazing in Poole original coaches is made from?  For example, the clear sheeting that is used in the old Pullmans?

I have some that could do with replacing (discoloured) and was hoping it is possible to buy an A4 sheet of the stuff and cut out replacements.

Many thanks

Hi @Ben A - just reading Railway Modeller (well it has got Sir Rod Stewart on the front) and see you folks are releasing the Class A tank wagon.  Are you planning on doing any in the Chipman Chemical Company livery?

Kind regards

I don't know what the original is made from but would suggest a sheet of acetate such as the type used in photocopying would be stiff enough to do the job and probably easily locally sourced

Not quite what was asked I know, but that is the stuff I use for windows in scratch built buildings and I would think it would do the job.

Hi @dannyboy and @Newportnobby

Thanks both, I have ordered a few sheets off Amazon and hopefully this will do the job.  It was less than £3 which I thought was a bargain.

Many thanks
