Am I too late to add my name to the list?
It would be great to run any of the ngf rolling stock items on Northallerton at it's inaugral exhibition in August.
Do I need to pm Tank?

@Tank

Cheers
Kirky


I shall put you on there Kirky. :thumbsup:

It is sort of mind boggling the journey that little fella has been on!

Has anyone worked out the total miles covered by the coach. Real ones, not on layouts.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Quite often, the train from where I live to Sydney is replaced by a bus.

More comfortable, and sometimes quicker!

The NGF Coach is nearing the end of its stay at Port Perran and Trepol Bay so a few photos to remember its visit by :
The carriage was stabled in Platform 2 at Trepol Bay for most of yesterday so that passengers could get a glimpse of the futuristic design. Seen here (somewhat incorgruously) in the company of the restored T9 which works in the area :

The carriage was also used on normal service trains. Seen here yesterday on the 15.20 departure for Wadebridge hauled by an N Class mogul :


If it looks right then it most probably is right.

And finally, the NGF Coach says goodbye to North & West Cornwall leaving the area as part of a special train hauled by a brand new Class 52 Western diesel hydraulic.
The train will make its way to the Bristol area where we expect to see yet more photos in due course :

Hopefully the carriage will make an appearance at several more model railways in due course.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Video worked fine for me :thumbsup:

Great pictures (and video), thanks for those!

Just had word from the panel which covers Parkway and Filton West, the 52 hauled special has been given the road into a platform (wasn't clear which one).

I will have a word with the TMD shift manager to see what motive power can be sent along to pick it up  :hmmm:
