Hi Guys

As there was some interest in the flask crane were doing two version (with and without the cab) and packing them tighter to get a lower cost. If anyone has any tweaks then now is the time to mention them!

Meanwhile - here's the KUA in primer - remember there are no dimensions for these that's we could find so its entirely educated guess work. Needs some revision but worth a look....

Russell brought this, now painted and with handrails, over to mine last night to give it a run and it performed faultlessly despite my son trying just about everything he can think of to derail it! It got a run through all sorts of pointwork and through the tight curves on our layout proving it is very well designed.

Am mega impressed and will be getting one, at least when available!!

Best wishes
Simon

In addition to the Crane running on Choates Lane, we had both Nclear Flask wagons trundling round as well.

Here is a short video of them:

I know there should be a DRS loco up front, but someone forgot to bring one the same person also forgot his DRS escort coach  ;)

Just saw the KUA wagon on the real railway sandwiched between a pair of escort coaches and two DRS 37's heading north on the Scottish Central Main Line. First time I've seen that.

May have to order one up now!

Hi Guys,

Quick update - well nothings changed yet. Both myself and David are busy with our families so 3DR is on hold. Neither of us has any idea of when this is going to get going again but the stuff that life throws your families way has to be taken care of weather we like it or not.

Meantime specifically for the KUA flask wagons Iv think theres a few of the prototypes bagged up if they are of any interest - might have time tomorrow to look for them. Some how the dimensions are out and the wheel base of the bogie is a bit off so if you go looking for errors you will find them - but if you want something different that works (and this runs beautifully) its what I run.

Regards

Russ

Thank you Russ for you reply.

I am keen to try a prototype and get to out there on an exhibition layout. Am not too fussed by dimensions etc just as long as it runs and can be turned from kit form into a running model as a copy of the original.

What bogies would need to be used on the wagon?

Looking closely at this picture, I couldn't view the ones clearly enough in reply 23

https://ukrailwaypics.smugmug.com/UKRailRollingstock/K-Tops-codes/KUA-flask-carrier/i-9QVQvjD/XL

you'll need the Y25C

The only person I can find with any stock at the moment is Bob Davies i.e. N-Train

and you need to look for code 1802

Thanks for that Russ, appreciate your reply.

I was looking at this website which prompted me to ask about the wagon on this thread


http://s374444733.websitehome.co.uk/kua/index.htm

it may be of use to you regarding dimensions etc
