Hi Russ

As you have already produced a CAD design do you intend to produce this revised genny module? 

If so will you then be offering an alternative/replacement consist of the revised genny and two additional tanks for those who have already purchased the RHTT in the original consist?  I hope so :D

Hi Mick

Once its perfected you can order what you like. Note the inspection windows in the centre of the genny need some attention before we do a test print.

Russ

Hi Guys

Spotted a mention for the N gauge forum in the current issue of the NGS mag. Ged's article for members models - page 39. Check the small print!

Good spot Russ!

My RHTT set will appear again in the next issue of BRM. They will be publishing an article on my loft layout.
Cheers,
Ged.

The only unfortunate issue is that it will be obvious that I have not put the orange stripes on yet!

Could this possibly be a sighting of a completed kit?

Congratulations to MalcolmH!

SIMPLE ANSWER IS THAT THEY DON'T

Two Versions of RHTTs

RHTTs primarily come in two forms – two-car Multi Purpose Vehicles (MPVs), lightweight multiple units also used by Network Rail in the summer for weedkilling duties, and the loco-hauled sky-blue modular FEA flat wagons, carrying large tanks and spraying equipment, which were first introduced by Network Rail for the 2005 leaf-fall season.

Chiltern Railways also use a converted three-car first generation diesel multiple unit to cover some of their running lines. For the autumn 2011 season, a pair of Network Rail’s 97/3 locomotives (specially converted from Class 37s, with the addition of the new ERTMS in-cab signalling system) were provided for use on the Crewe-based Welsh diagram, where their once immaculate yellow liveries was then obliterated by a brown film of sandite and general railhead dirt.

The loco-hauled RHTT sets, which present the most interest to rail enthusiasts, are currently operated by two freight operating companies – German-owned DB Schenker (formerly EWS) and Carlisle-based Direct Rail Services (DRS), and bring loco-hauled trains to many parts of the rail network which rarely see anything other than multiple units, such as the rural branch line from Oxenholme to Windermere, in the Lake District.

This converted unit has gone now. We get a pair of DB Cargo 66's and a trio of flats. This time it always seemed to be 66101 in red and 66017 in ews when ever it came through my station..
