LMS TPO brake Stowage Van.

Postby Bushey Troughs » Tue Oct 29, 2013 7:32 pm

Is there an OO RTR/kit of an LMS TPO brake stowage Van? I'm looking for a brake van for a 1930s 'Night Mail' rake.

Not to sure about stowage brake though, I think sorting brake van could have been mentioned in the narrative!

What I know so far is this Class 6 engine, 340 tons, 12 vehicles 7 of which were sorting vans. apart from the stowage/sorting brake were the other 4 carriages pick up/drop off type? The man said they'd just picked up 7 pouches, so I take it there were several of them.

Yes, BT, there's a kit from 247 Developments:

Looks like you will have to collect the bits for the full kit but perhaps a call will clear that up. I haven't used 247 so I don't know what they're like.

Comet Models do a lot of LMS coach kits but not the TPOs apparently: http://www.cometmodels.co.uk/

Cheers John, this is true, but I'm looking for a brake stowage van. Could this be the holy grail of OO gauge LMS carriages! Find out later in the programme.

Surely there must be something out there somewhere. I don't fancy scratch building one, life's to short, and far too many projects on the back burner. :oops:

Ah, to quote John Cleese "I had not fully divined your intentions".

If there is such a thing, Larry Goddard will know: http://larrygoddard.webs.com/

Good luck with your search.
