How about something like this in the railroad range ?

A cheap and cheerful pregrouping suburban coach, the roof is made from 3 Hull and Barnsley fish van roofs. It would make a change from the 4 wheeler.

Provided they put the motor where it belongs and didn't fit it with rubber tyres.

Fingers crossed they do renew this model and do it right, to their current standard. It will make a very useful chassis for powering other small 0-6-0ery...

yes please. The 1960's BR version. Very difficult to find (even on ebay) and, I think, only produced for 4 years


I had one in blue/grey with a bright orange scoop. The maroon one from last year's catalogue is still available in branches of Hobbycraft c.£41.

I'd like more (OO) coaches with interior lighting or the option to add it easily as Dapol have done with their N gauge light bar ready carriages. Remember having one in blue/grey back in the 70s. No idea what type it was. It was just a coach to me!

I would like to see the following
VR "Z" van, TC balcony coach that little toy Balcony coach and little red caboose.
This list is for my current light railway project except the caboose that just looks good with the TC balcony coach
at least these would then have the right couplings on them.
I actually recently acquired the first two on the list but had to pay prices I consider to be a bit over the top.

Is that the BR Maroon version? Mine came in a 'Night Mail' set hauled by 'City of Nottingham' (now sadly departed this vale of tears) and yes, they don't often appear on Ebay. More annoyingly, neither do the other coaches that also comprised the set (BR maroon versions of the old LMS staniers, with dark roofs) so it has taken me years to get to the stage now of having a rake of 5...

I would love to see the R108 Closed Van from the Hornby Thomas range return. That is such a cool van!

TT to modern standards. I can't make up my mind if I should start working in 2mm or 4mm and have stock for both. I cast sideways glances at 3mm from time to time and whilst I know I couldn't cope with the level of building it requires I still think its very nice scale.
