The patience was rewarded (on 2 counts.... a sunny hour in March too!)

Thanks Wookie, having seen the quality of work on your layout, that gives me confidence to keep trying!


Thanks but I don't have a clue what I'm doing half the time! hahahaha

If you use some fine piano wire for brace rod it improves the wagon

Those transfers look excellent and well applied. Got Robbies web site bookmarked. "Another thing to do" added to the list! :D

I noticed that they have one for "PICKFORDS" containers which would be attractive models to have, Brian.

He also has transfers for "Somerset Coalfields" for putting on 7 plank wagons. So much to do. :'(

I did not see the "Somerset Coalfields"; that would be ideal. The next parcel was already going to contain some undercoated 7-plank wagons. I guess they should be in white undercoat if the lettering is in white? We will also need to work out how many we will need for your layout and "through" running, Brian. (But, Perthshire, may have its local suppliers of Steam Coal?)

Got the name wrong, it's "Somerset Collieries". (SW 086) There is only one running number but it might be possible to get several numbers.

Thanks, Brian. That name makes more sense but you'sd have to change RADSTOCK?

Thanks Brian, yes .. I think he does change the running number if you buy multiples of the same one, he did this on the Guinness & Ebano tankers & I got a few multiples of coal wagons (Callendar Coal Company) and he has sent No 400 & No 399

Thanks Chris, will definitely have a few test pieces before I try anything on the finished ones.  As for local coal suppliers.... with the neighbouring Fife coal fields (now a shadow of their former glory sadly), there is no shortage of fine local examples to choose from, that said, quality coal from the south is well thought of by the PRPS footplate crews :)

Just to follow up on what I said about running numbers... might be better to specifically ask for the different numbers, as I notice in the picture of the ones I bought, there are 2 pickfords ones & they are both No 28, but I got a few Fox removals & they have different container numbers - as do some of the others, but the 2 Southern Region ones are the same number

From the one container I have done so far, would advise that some of the sharp features of the kit (if you use the peco kit as a base) need filed down in advance

Thanks, Andrew, food for thought. For the "Somerset Collieries" 7-plank wagons, we would need a range of running numbers but they can include duplicates for 'through' running.

It sounds like it might be easier, then, for me to post the unpainted 7-plank wagons to Brian (Mito) and for him to do any necessary filing then spraypaint them with some locally bought acrylic white undercoat prior to applying the transfers?

For the "PICKFORDS" Conflat Containers, I agree, there would need to be some filing and sanding before applying transfers.

For the transfers which we plan to make for our various West Country PO wagons and vans, I was planning to make the background transparent. However, to make the text stand out it looks like part of the bodyside will need to be overpainted in matt white? It looks like we will need to try a prototype, first.
