NGF Wagon Tour
« on: January 03, 2011, 10:19:47 AM »
I'm thinking about making a wagon (or two) painted in NGF Livery to go on tour with forum members.

What do we think?

Good idea matt-b.  Depending on how cheaply they can be bought and painted, I'll try to make them fit the Steam era and another for the Modern era.

All suggestions on colours or models are welcome.

Something we have plenty of on our layout are container flats, so would not look too out of place on our layout... ;D

Was part of this on another forum (not the horrible one  ;) ) and we ended up having a Southern Hemisphere wagon and a Northern Hemisphere one.  Each member took a photo and this was located on a map which was put on show at an actual model railway show mainly organised by members of the forum (ddolfelin will know what I'm on about)

I think in practice it is a great idea however it may be worth waiting a few months to see how the membership settles down or indeed grows.  Not trying to be a party pooper, but these things take some organising and whilst the forum is still growing, new sections are being added, new members arriving and (as far as I am aware) just the 2 of you trying to run and maintain it, perhaps this is one to revisit in the summer.

I'll get me coat  :o

I am up for it so long a whatever wagon is chosen it has wheels as I have nothing to put a container on  :-[

Just another thing..... lets hope it doesn't degenerate into a farce like it did on another well known site

No worries Lawrence.  I expect that by the time it's all ready it'll be a few months.   :)

I'll make sure that whatever is decided on will have wheels.   :thumbsup:  And I also hope that these models don't go missing like they did elsewhere.   ::) ;D

Latest so far...

I've resprayed four containers red, and I have two Graham Farish Container Wagons to mount them on.  I've also bought and installed the new GF black profiled wheelsets.

Currently waiting on Electra Graphics to deliver the vinyl's to put on the containers. :thumbsup:
