Re: Mail sorting vans - how to use?

Hows this for a "prototype for everything". This is the Edinburgh portion of the Up Special TPO arriving at Carstairs, 1xBG hauled by a class 87. This was added to the rear of the train once the Perth portion (4 x mailvans) and Glasgow portion (8 x mailvans) were joined. http://www.jhowie....

Re: It must be Bachmann's turn for some speculating

I must say I was surprised there was no 0-6-0 tender engine from any area. Both the C and the 3F have sold very well indeed.

Re: 2013 wishlist

Swindon built 6 car trans pennine unit in green with buffet car What, and stop the Ebay traders charging £250 for the end cars £117 for a centre car and £135 for a buffet, all that for a 3.5mm scale trix model. Mind you if the moulds could also be adapted fo the class 126 I would support that idea!...

Re: Airfix / Dapol Railbus Motor Kit

Re: "Pen Y Bryn"

Superb once again, you have really put me in the mood to get some decent trees on my layout. I have a hydrangea just begging to be pruned too.
