That's looking good, Paddy.  I remember a shed visit to Haymarket in the late 'seventies and seeing the breakdown train.  It was very red!  I spent a fair bit of time looking at the crane as it was in light steam.

Much later I shared digs with a crane operator who told me that he much preferred the old steam cranes to the ones he had now.  He said that steam cranes were more powerful and more controllable.

I look forward to seeing developments.

Best wishes.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1930s to the 1950s.

The recent posts by Ian ( @icairns ) about his BR breakdown train have inspired me to have a third and final go!

Wow!  Thanks!  I do not think I have ever inspired anyone before!

I especially like the Engineer's Red colour you are using.

Hi Folks,

Does anyone know who can supply breakdown crane/train transfers?  I have Googled but drawn a blank.

Kind regards

Paddy:

I also struggled to find suitable crane decals.

I ended up using the following from Railtec (see attached pdf file):

     #8254 - 2mm BR Diesel Hydraulic Recovery Crane (1980s onwards) - Cowans Sheldon

     #2980 - 2mm Re-Railing, Breakdown, Tool Van Pack

The hydraulic recovery crane decals are a bit late for my period modeled (1960s), but they were the best I could find.

Hi Ian ( @icairns )

Thank you for your helpful reply.  I wondered if I was missing a trick but you seem to have confirmed not.  It is a shame but even in OO the situation seems to be similar.

Many thanks

Hi Folks

Can anyone recommend a Halfords car spray that is a suitable representation of BR bauxite?

Kind regards
