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.

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Have Dapol withdrawn their competing offering - anyone know ?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...

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...
