Andrew

I have done a good few wagons with Robbie's transfers

I found that the best results for 10ft tanks are the ones with silver backgrounds

Examples below







The seven plank wagons take careful application of decal fix to get the transfers to bed in!




Thanks

Some nice work there Rabbitaway, the Pumpherson Oil ones look good, I have 3 of them partly finished - but ran out of 10 Tne kits!

Thanks for sharing, I have a few of the 7 plank ones to do once I finish the tanks, so will heed your caution

Cheers,
Andrew

Thanks Andrew

I have a number of Scottish based wagons with Robbie's transfers - photos are on another post on the forum

They provide great unusual wagons instead of the available RTR versions 

Only non Scottish is the Thames Haven tank wagon - I worked in the area where the refinery is now demolished a few years ago so it is a bit of a favourite!

They are very good transfers. I was thinking of making some homemade ones but it might be better to see if Robbie would make some up.

Think you might be right Brian, I bought a sheet of transfer paper to try some, but think it might all be consumed in the trial & error phase!

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



The lesser spotted Woodtink   :camera:   :beers:


These vans were surprisingly roomy inside, huh? Plenty headroom.....

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?)

Almost certainly from the Fife Collieries...

Harburn Hobbies do a nice range of Scottish wagons. Well worth a look on their website. Or if you are in Embra anytime, pop down Leith Walk. Lovely little model shop.

Thanks Scott

It is a fantastic wee shop, I still have the rejection letter from 30+ years ago when I applied for a Saturday job there  :'(

The 2 Scottish & Newcastle tankers & the 2 Edinburgh Distillers covered wagons were from their fine selection :)

unfortunately, the last picture of the van shows it without a floor in it.... should till be ok for headroom though, as we are not going to replace the 3" floorboards that were in it originally, will be more like 3/4".... (don't think I will be like Maurits and have 12Tne's of computer controlled track (& more helices than Juraassic Park) on my layout)  :D  and it is about 2.5m at the walls

Cheers,
Andrew

My own attempt at the Pumpherston Oil Tanker



Still a work in progress, but quite pleased with the colour match (but not the lighting for the photo!)

The decals look very good. What printer did you use?

These are from Robbie's Rolling Stock too - I have not tried any self-created ones yet

With the recent good news about progress on the PRPS new location, the members set about organising some of the rolling stock in readiness for movements later this year
