Hello all,

On the prototype the cranes are just clamped on, and the position can vary, so pre-drilling holes isn't particularly helpful. Plus given the relatively small number of customers who would want them wouldn't be optimal on a R-T-R model.

This image shows the same type of crane as the NGS casting, albeit fitted to a Salmon, not a Sturgeon:

There is a plate across the deck which would offer a large area for gluing.

Cheers

Ben A.

Hi

Making an assumption that the cranes are the same distance from the wagon edge as on the salmon then the NGS cranes come with a drilling jig that could be used to position the holes.

Cheers

Paul

Pushing era slightly but I am sure a couple in the yard with the snow ploughs and other random fishkind would not look out of place

I think I'm now going to have two PW trains instead of the one originally planned.

a  Fatal Attraction

b  A Kind of Loving

c  Kiss of the Spider Woman

Definitely c...

I might go for a triple pack in black - I think my next layout will have to be/include a full-blown PW depot... :)
