30ft 1in Carriages Gas pipes.

I am in the process of building a D425. From the picture in the book on these carriages this Parcel Van looks to have the Gas pipes on the End with steps and on the left hand side which seems to be confirmed by the photo on the front cover of the Journal Vol 8 No 5 2016 and in addition gives a good ...

Re: D14 Timber wagon 7mm

Have nearly finished but need to make a decision regards the chains. They look larger than they actually are. The hooks are from a NZR model supplier.

Re: 30ft 1in Kits

I am making a start on the D425 Parcel van. From the picture page 21 in 30ft 1" carriages it looks like these vans had no roof ventilators is this correct also how far up the roof did the rainstrip go.

Re: D14 Timber wagon 7mm

David that was what I thought when I first looked at the photo's and then I wondered if they weren't hooks but a anchoring point to the underside of the sole bar. If you look at the photo on page 158 the two rings on the RH side are a different size. This also shows up in the other photo's and the d...
