Hi
First of all may I wish all members a happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.
Amongst an 0 gauge collection we received a large number of 00 coaches the majority of which have been built by Derek Lawrence and painted by Larry Goddard and are of super quality. If you model 00 as well as 0 gauge and are interested I can supply a list and photographs. Please can you also pass this message on to any friends or fellow club members who may be interested. The coaches are models of LMS, LNWR, WCJS, NSR, L&Y and MR vehicles - plus one LSWR vehicle. In all around 50 coaches.
Please contact me or ask your friends to contact me via the E&T email address which is ET@gauge0guild.com. The '0' is a number not a letter.
regards

Kerry

Murry,

I obtained a list of the 4mm models from the "Wright Writes" thread on RMweb, but had difficulty in identifying most of the carriages as the descriptions and coach numbers weren't too helpful and Diagram Numbers weren't supplied. I emailed the contact address I was given twice but didn't get a reply.

I have attached a MS Word copy of the edited list showing the LNWR carriages

Hi Jol
I have posted a query on the 0 Gauge forum. Just out of interest would these coaches be what they are cracked up to be.

Murry,

Lawrence/Goddard carriages would have been very much the things to aspire to in their day. It is probably fair to say that the absolute detailing (underframes, etc.) might not be what the finest model builders achieve nowadays, but for someone looking for "RTR" LNWR models there probably wasn't anything to surpass them.

They might be considered collectors items nowadays, which could reflect in the prices asked.
