Re: Wagons - What kit would you like to see?

What about the Motor car van D447,D446 some of which were in private owner livery.
The D42 Glass Wagon or the D38 Furniture Wagon might appeal
Please do not forget the 7mm modellers.

Private Owner Non-Passenger Stock

I have been led to believe (by the National Railway Museum) that there is a collection of photographs of LNWR Wagons/Carriages in storage in London. Does anyone know if this may be true? If so, any ideas on where in London? Please keep in mind that I am not in the UK, so can not just "pop" over to h...

Re: Washout Plugs

Simon I did look there but none of the photo showed plugs. Pete In your Bashers and Gadgets page 41 there is the explanation about changes done by the LMS ? in regards to boilers built by external builders which mentions the 1923 drawing. On page 21 there is a Coal Engine in LMS livery and from the ...

Washout Plugs

I have been following the build of a LNWR Coal Loco on the O Gauge Forum and the builder has put the washout plugs under the hand rail. The only photo I can find showing the plugs has them just below the hand rail, which seems more sensible is my assumption correct. Before I put my foot in it.

Re: How were semaphore signal painted?

Philip would a mobile platform suit your job or a cherry picker.Do not know how high up you need to get. If high a man cage on a crane.
As to how the semaphore was painted the first thing is to forget present day H&S. How about a bosun's chair, and the signal arm lowered to be more easily reached.

Re: D14 Timber wagon 7mm

I came across some pictures taken of old wooden wagons on I think the scalefour site and this were a silver/grey. There was a etched brass 7mm D14 kit by wagon works years ago but have not come across any second hand. I see in the O Gauge Gazette that Just Like The Real Thing has released a Rectank ...
