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...

Re: Hornby 2019 Collectors Club Model

Not a BR loco - so not a Class 06 - which I think were Barclay designs

Re: Sorry, but ... another Bachmann wagon question

Thanks once again gents. It's mainly certain PO wagons that I'm still after if I can afford them, but I guess the simplest way forward is to assume before I bid that I'll have to fork out for wheels and couplings. That way, if I don't but I still win the item, I'm quids in :) Are you bothered about...

Re: Sorry, but ... another Bachmann wagon question

On the colour of the inserts - the white one with dark blue box - has many inherited designs from other manufacturers - including the infamous 10ft wheelbase 16t BR minerals (should be 9ft wb) - so no, not a good reference point... :( Broadly speaking the later clear inserts with blue/red box are mu...

Yes - it is not possible to say without knowing the actual model - just ask as somebody on here will have one - or know somebody who does :D

Re: Which size wheels

as said above the 14.1 coach wheels, in prototype form were fitted to 99% of new coach build from 1920 onwards - in solid disc form, but still braked by wooden brake shoes 12.6 wheels in solid disc form - equate (roughly) to the disc wheels used in modern coaching stock - BR Mk2 onward - which are b...

Re: Dapol coach kits

Yes - built quite a few Staniers as BR liveried jobs.

They go together well - my only gripe is the plastic wheels - but they are very easily replaced with Hornby 14.1 equivalent steel wheelsets...

Also the pre-coloured coach end should be black and they are not - for my time period

Re: Replacement chassis for Replica Railways 57xx

Definitely worth repairing - much superior to the mainline and early Bachmann split chassis IMO - as I have versions of all 3 - with the replica being noisy (from day one) - but mine has survived without major surgery - which is more than I can say about the others..
