I can hear the OO Modellers asking for one already!

(Minor thread drift)

Already being proposed / offered by KR Models (sane outfit doing 00 GT3) in 00, with the option of DCC sliding covers no less!

At risk of continuing that tangent yes, it was never clear, despite repeated asking, which wagon Keith was actually doing, as the CADs shown were a hybrid of two different types. It was then cancelled, whether this was directly related I'm not sure!

Hi Ben

Another great announcement that I didn't know I wanted 'til I read about the Dounray traffic. Do you, or anyone else happen to know if they run with the Escort coaches to Georgemas, I'm assuming they might not as not MOD traffic?

Many thanks

Rob

Many Thanks Western Exile

Of course I could have studied the Revolution sample formations properly, hadn't noticed the Georgemas example!

Talking of C=Rail, an you twist an arm or two and get some Greater Manchester Binliner containers done for the KFA?

Steven B.

Some Binliners would be a great idea, do any run along the southern end of the WCML?

As far as I can tell all the various binliner containers around the country are all different. The main things they have in common are that they are all 20' and they are all plain blue.

Appart from the Greater Manchester binliner containers which have been to two designs, the first were yellow, the later ones white with yellow ends.

The GM binliners have the advantage that they ran on the Calder Valley line along side Cawoods coaltainers on PFA wagons (although the Revolution KFAs aren't quite the same type as those used by the GM binliners).

My understanding is that the KR Models proposal has been cancelled.

Also, the wagon they showed in CAD is significantly different to the ones we are offering and not associated with MoD traffic.

Cheers

Is it me or do I detect an ironic drift from the disposal of military nuclear fuel to the disposal of nappies, and is this a sign of the times  :D

I do not know what the current policy is but back in the 1980s the "submarine" related trains ran as Class 1 passenger trains partly for priority reasons and partly as they were carrying passengers in the form of the security team. They also shared in the 1Xxx reporting number sequence.

I passed a frantic hour one evening cancelling/rescheduling a Derby to Rosyth movement after my boss left his briefcase on the Victoria Line - amongst the documents was the Special Traffic Notice for that night's train. Any nuclear related movement was regarded as very sensitive at the time after one or two highly-publicised protestor incidents affecting spent power station fuel movements.
