I have one, approximate weight 175 grams (that's using an analogue kitchen scale). Here is a video of it in action but with pretty free running wagons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4HBC-6fVsI&feature=youtu.be

Re: Metcalfe kit - what stone?

From the images on their site, I'd say the dressed gritstone M0052 is the closest match to the tunnel portal.

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

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

The Southern Railway also had PMV's (Parcel & Miscellaneous Vans). Bachmann do the PMV and the BR Mk1 CCT, while Hornby have made LNER and LMS CCT's.
