Modern vehicles
« on: March 19, 2011, 08:21:51 PM »
Hi guys, pretty new here but have got a thread running about the construction of my layout. Now this is set in the late 80's early 90's and I am thinking about having some kind of cement plant has an industry. I was wondering if anybody could point me in the direction of either modernish readymixed cement lorries or modernish powdered cement/bulk powder lorries.
Thanks

I think you mean ready mixed concrete - rather than ready mixed cement. Tomytec produce these 'mixers';





and Bandai produce a range of powdered goods tanker lorries.

Thanks for that guys, one small problem those ambulances are fine for a layout set around the london area in the eraly 80's/90's. But modern ambulances are all now painted yellow due to an EU directive and the battenburg striping is usually unique to each area. Sorry not being anal about this but I drive an ambulance nearly everyday of the week so don't plan on having a singal one anywhere. Reminds me too much of work and I try to forget the place when I ain't there lol.

Thanks though and keep em coming, there does seem to be more modern vehicles out there than I first realised.

Adam,

Are you making those ambulance vinyls available commercially for people to purchase? and have you put them on your ERG website?

The overlays will be an N-Train release, as I am importing the Ambulances. It is part of the ongoing co-operation between myself and Adam.

Just to clarify that the Ambulance overlays are being done as an "exclusive" for Bob and won't be directly available from myself. I shall, however, be doing a link from my site over to bob's with contact details, etc.  :)

Very cool. 8) Bob, you will be getting orders for those when they're available.  I will find somewhere on my 1970's layout for one in spite of it being the wrong era!

These Japanese plastic vehicles are quite easy to anglicise, convert and adapt in to something different and more appropriate
I converted a dump truck to an AA relay style car rescue flat back;

Nice job, H.  I have a couple of those that I want to try to convert to yellow BR vans, but that AA truck looks like a great option for one of them...

form a STGO category 3 heavy haul low loader ;
