New Railway Modellers Van Tour 2008

Finally it's been posted! The NRM Van 2008 tour is now go!

Below is a copy of the 'instructions' which can also be found with the van.

  • 1. When you receive the parcel, handle carefully and try not to rip any packaging.
  • 2. Place van on layout/section of track and take a photograph of it.
  • 3. Complete enclosed 'travel document'.
  • 4. Repack model and 'travel document' in packaging. Repair/replace any packaging as needs require.
  • 5. Contact next person on list via Personal Messaging on the forum and get their address.
  • 6. Post parcel to that person and post picture of van into the dedicated thread on the forum.
  • 7. Recorded delivery is recommended to guaranteed delivery and security of the van, but it is not obligatory.
  • 8. Bask in the glory of being part of a group doing something to unify us all through an object we all assocate with!
  • 9. If you want, download your own PDF certificate.
Accidents do happen, if you damage the van in anyway at all, please own up - it's not the end of the world and all things can be repaired. If the van is damaged or lost in post tell us on the forum and we'll sort something out.

Norm has arrived in Norfolk at Barnfield on a cold morning having being hauled from Buckingham by a Vi-trains 37...

Image

Image

Image

Image


Once he arrive Norm then took a trip to the mainline station making up his own special HST.

Image

Image


After realising that no passengers could actually use this new HST, Norm was put on frieght duties.

Firstly with a Class 55 Deltic.

Image

Image

Image


Then a 20 with some empty coal trucks

Image

Image

Then into a siding behind a 47

Image

After sitting for too long not moving, Norm was shunted into the pile of scrap coaches where he lay for years.....

Image

Dont Fret. Norm was rescued from scrap, had a nice set of metal wheels fitted and now continues his never ending journey.....

NRM 00 Tour Legs 2 3 4 & 5

Postby Raider » Mon Jun 30, 2008 9:15 pm

NoRMan has arrived in the 'sunny' Midlands and decided to head out in to the garden to get a bit of air after being cooped up in bubble wrap.

Image

On closer inspection, it would seem the NoRMan has met his N Gauge twins
Image

Image

Passing over the lifting bridge (yes, the grass does need a cut)
Image

(Could do with a bit of stain on the shed as well)
Image

Stopped at Levington Halt, where the line was found to be blocked by giant vegetation.
Image

NoRMan then said fairwell to the garden as it was beginning to get dark and he moved to the re-built Never End
Image

Waiting for loading at the steelworks
Image

Passing over the bridge behind Hogwarts Express
Image

Image

Passing through what will be the cutting (eventually)

Hi

Martin had asked if he could have the van due to his trip down here to see me and and then our trip to see Camelot Junction today. As far as I know Raider and Davek both knew and were ok with this.

Which was a bit cheeky really considering he wasn't even on the list.. pushing in like that!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

He'll be off to you next and following the list again when Martin gets home MR T
