If you guys get a date and I could make it I would be more than willing to lend a hand.

Cheers Acko!

Let's not get carried away though - I am initially suggesting just a trip to check out what they have, what condition etc. and maybe introduce myself to the staff.  Also - I am just interested in the Museum itself, having not heard of it before, and would be interested to check out the pan arrangements on the 305 they seem to have, to help with the 304 kit I am making.

There's a lot of water to run under the bridge before we get to the stage of needing the laser scan, but let's hope we can build up a head of steam to get to that point eventually!

Fingers crossed!  Cheers  Jon  :)

It's an Amsie's kit - now no longer available.  Here is the thread although it has stalled a bit.  I'm waiting for Gresley bogies from the NGS shop....been waiting a while..........

I would certainly be in the market for a 304/305, either in Regional Railways or GMPTE livery.  Heck, maybe even 1 of each, to add to my already ordered 9-car Pendolino!  I remember travelling on the 304s and 305 as a child/teenager, and have fond memories of them in running in Greater Manchester and Cheshire.  I've been hoping someone would make one for a few years, but doubt it'll ever happen.  If you could pull it off, I'd be in the queue!

A class 303 or 311 would be great. I'd buy either one for sure.
