Re: J26, 15 ton crane, wagons from Oxford Rail

Pre-ordered the crane looks great - an early 'breakdown' crane that was retained when replaced by later larger capacity cranes

Re: Plausible WR Passenger Operations?

Previously I had researched South West to North West WR trains - both via the Midlands and Shrewsbury and Craven Arms. Against their loco policy the make up of trains on the WR was less standard than expected - with a great deal of era and period mixing. So look at toplight coaches alongside later C...

Re: Dad-1 - Workbench - West Bay Wagon Works

TVR Diag.2073T - built in Feb 1911. Very strongly built with a rating of 30 Tons. Heavy telegraph poles were a popular cargo - and the wagon length also fitted in with these loads. Definitely still around in the 50's with some surviving into the 70's in departmental use. I have a Ratio one - with Di...

Re: Hornby Large Prairie

Current Hornby one - is a development of the airfix/mainline one - and is not in the current catalogue.

The forthcoming one is 'new' from the ground up.

Have Dapol withdrawn their competing offering - anyone know ?

Re: BACHMAN SPLIT CHASSIS

Also this model could experience the wheel inserts (plastic) expanding and bowing outwards - easy to identify - flip the chassis over and look from the underside at the driving wheels - if the plastics wheel inserts are standing proud - that is your issue..

Re: Four-wheel parcels vans (or whatever!)

Sounds like CCTs - Covered Carriage Trucks.

Used by all pre-Nationalisation companies - but also built by BR - give the above a google image search...should see what you saw then.

The Southern used them famously...
