Thanks for these photos., Andrew. There are some very nice rakes, there. I'd forgotten that you also had a Shepherd Neame brewery van.

More shunting activities, this time a rake of 3 Pumpherston Oil Tankers recently completed by the paint shop





Transfers suppleid by Robbies Rolling Stock & clumsily applied by the PRPS :)  I really need to fill those little holes where the ladders go if I am not going to use the ladders that come with the kits!  The scaffolders had clearly modified the height of the working platform which must have confused the painters when they did the middle one  :doh:

With more than a nod to the recent grumblings about "less then Scottish" acquisitions, the parade of the CR 2-6-2 Fairburn Tank loco and the PRPS's Caledonian Rly Suburban coaches was met with great excitement and all round approval





The society has also made it known that they are actively pursuing further rolling stock acquisitions (coaches & wagons) and hope to have some good news on this front soon.

Thanks, Andrew, another very nice selection of rolling stock. Soon, I hope, a BR Blue Siphon G can be added to the parcel's rake. (Then you'll need an ex-SR CCT. . . ) That looks like an ex-LNER Gresley 61 6 Full Brake with the 'GAND' on the door, a nice kit.

The Caledonian Railway coaches certainly look very good indeed behind the CR-liveried 2-6-4T (which seems to have a wheel off the track -- a mistake I made in some earlier photos., now I have to check very closely!

Thanks Derek, thanks Chris, wish I had more to post on actual construction!  but the lesser spotted woodtink has emerged from his April hibernation and has threatened to arrive onsite next week to start laying the floorboards that he has been preparing this week :)

I am now able to spot the Thompson BG :)  came in a job lot, only recognise it now because I have ordered one of the NGS ones in LNER teak.  (not sure what the significance of "GAND" is though) - my knowledge of coaching stock is definitely improving with your help Chris!

Good morning, Andrew. Good news about the van floorboards, I hope.

I plan (maybe this summer?) to buy, assemble, and paint, with John, the NGS three-pack of Gresley 61' 6" Full Brake (BG)s: two will be spraypainted in BR Crimson or Maroon (not decided yet) then lined for John and I and one, in plain BR Blue for John (he will, probably do the BR Blue spraying). The kits are not cheap. I don't think the originals were ever painted in BR Blue and Grey so you may want to consider stripping your Gresley 61 6 Full Brake and respraying it? (Then you can also apply the correct transfers, e.g. GUARD, but I don't think, in the BR Blue period they carried guards, just parcels.) A Gresley 61 6 Full Brake in LNER Teak will certainly look very impressive but I don't envy you achieving the teak finish!

I hope that, this summer, you'll be able to start on your layout (and Derek on his) and I'll be able to restart work on Cant Cove.

You know you're getting older when your mind makes commitments your body can't meet.

Thanks Brian, I already have this one, and it runs ok, just needs a bit of a service, the maintenance sheds are full of much more desperate souls in need of repair, so she is a wee bit down the queue!

Thanks for the heads up though, that one had not come through my searches

Cheers,
Andrew

Thanks Chris, look forward to seeing those kits evolve - I could have sworn it was a Thompson BG as it seemed to match the "soon to be available" Thompson BG's from NGS rather than the Gresley .... I really must stop trying to sound knowledgeable about coaching stock  :doh:  It is quite a thickly applied coat of paint, am slightly tempted to to strip it back, not sure I would do justice to the teak though!  Thanks for the highly rational explanation of "Gand"

Tomorrow was the threatened sighting of the Carpenter... will update the thread if there is any news!
