For my latest arrivals, I have to shift location from Reading and go back about a decade.

My latest arrivals... seen here around Paddington in the mid 1960s.  Both of these take me back in time to long before I was a trainspotter... and neither fits with my BR Blue era.  But I love them both...







The Midland Blue Pullman is probably making its only appearance before it gets converted into a Western Pullman with additional second class carriages and altered driving cars.  I'm waiting on some etched sides from Worsley Works and it remains to be seen how well the Grey/Blue Western Pullman turns out...

The red and blue brick wall has been made following the method of Chubber on the card building section of RMWeb.  I feel he should get the credit for the idea.

If you haven't seen what he has done in OO gauge - take a look!
http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/38687-brick-to-stone-wall-join/page-2

My next arrival will be the RTC Class 24 that is on its way from The Signal Box at a knock down price of 59.  It will be photographed once I get RTC vinyls from Adam to make up a Trib Train...

Looking good. I haven't seen 6 wheel tanks about before in "N", can I ask what make they are please?

Suspect they're Dapol NB115A -

Not being clever, just so happen to have the Dapol catalogue by my side and open on page 52!

There's 9 variations in their range of 6 wheelers, Trev.

:laughabovepost: I'm going the third rail route on my layout so avoiding that mast problem, and have confirmed there's enough room to accommodate twin-stacks and autoracks where the lines disappear at each end - it does mean I'll have to invoke selective amnesia about that third rail and road markings when Solsbury Hill operates as Mercy Street though  :doh:

Dapol is definitely right. I'm hunting the United Dairies version for a future Somerset & Dorset layout. I've managed to find two for about 11.00 each, so I seem to be doing fairly well in grabbing a slight bargain. So far! Another four would probably be enough for my needs, but it may take a while.

Re 6 wheel tankers:

Just got an email from www.modelfair.com

http://www.modelfair.com/product/166797/dapol-4f-031-003-6-wheel-milk-tanker-unigate-silver

Not the Co-op version perhaps but a decent price!

Tempting  ;)
