Looks straight out of an early western movie.

Does the PRR stand for 'Peter's Rail Road' by any chance?  :D

Hi Phil,

I don't think I have ever seen any of the Athern cars for sale.
It is a pity they have discontinued these classic cars  :thumbsdown:

cheers John.

Hi

I sold my PRR recently like this. I've never seen PRR cars for these, but I may have a contact for you - I'll look.
I can get you some like these, but they are undecorated. These are slightly smaller than the Bachann ones and so are bit better scale. Will send some more pics later.

I bought this off ebay the other day, my first ever class 45 Peak! :claphappy:
Its secondhand but is like new & runs smooth. As its an older China split chassis Farish model I'm thinking of taking the knife to it at some point & doing a bit of detailing  >:D

I'd like to fit lights to it as it doesn't have any, anybody else done this to theirs?  :hmmm:


cheers, Stu.  :)

I bought this lot to celebrate my recent promotion:



16 for now, 3 more and I'll be happy. Just got to build all the loads now, one down......

Should keep a pair of Metals 37's busy (if they ever get made!)

I hope you have not drained the stock of the supplier I am looking at for these.... :P

Nah, only joking, congrats to you on both counts  :thumbsup:

Ref the Metals 37s, I have a Poole Era one, not long BR Lines serviced, if you don't want to wait.... >:D

There's plenty left! Good offers at the moment too.

I'm sure the re-tooled 37 will be along soon!

Two Dapol Gresley teak carriages arrived in the post today, a BCK and TK.
They join my Dapol buffet car and two Minitrix corridor thirds with spindly truss rods to form a short set of Gresley corridor teak carriages, all based on preserved examples, but currently in varying states of repair.
This is my set if all of them were restored to their original condition, described from top to bottom (none of them have been re-numbered):



TK 1002 (SRPS, Bo'ness) (Minitrix)
TK 3291 (NYMR) (Minitrix)
Buffet car 641 (NYMR) (Dapol)
TK 23896 (NYMR) (Dapol)
BCK 24068 (Severn Valley) (Dapol)

My plan is to run them as a preserved set as though I was running my own heritage railway, behind my first choice locos for the job, 70000 Britannia (Minitrix) or my recently-acquired J27 (Union Mills)

For other modellers, the prototypes could be seen running together between 1934-43, numbered as supplied RTR, on the LNER it could run behind any Gresley or any other suitable pre-group passenger loco, e.g. B12 or GC Director, and also on inter-company service behind a suitably-powered passenger loco of the late 30s such as a GWR Hall, LMS Jubilee or Black 5, or SR Lord Nelson, or Schools in Maunsell livery.

Nice coaches gc4946.

I've got a Brake Third and Corridor Third and I'm thinking of buying another Brake Third to make a 3-coach set to go with my LNER Dapol B1.  They don't really go with 1960s Western Region but they look great together and remind me of a childhood friend's Hornby LNER loco and coaches which I admired.

Thanks for the loco info. I have a Hall that will possibly do.

Can someone please explain why Dapol have produced what seems to be 3, 3rd class, 1, 1st class and 3 breaks and no 2nd class coaches.

Can a realistic rake be put together with these?
