Thanks Geoff T and TimberSurf.
Not much happening modelling wise on Millsend, enjoying some running sessions now.
Whilst trawling the internet I found this oddity, an LNER 4 wheel LWB Pigeon Brake Van. After
reading up on their history, it seems a few survived through the sixties and 1 example lasted
until 1971. As well as used for pigeon transport they were also used as parcel stock, just what I
needed to know as I am always on the lookout for unusual parcel stock and as Millsend is set in Lancashire
it seemed just the job.
I found that Slimrails did a plastic kit at a very reasonable price. A few pics of the kit up to its first
coat of paint, Railmatch maroon, looks a bit wishy washy but after its next coat should look ok. I added
vac pipes which don't come with the kit, but the kit otherwise is excellent.
More pics to follow after another coat of paint, glazing and numbers added.
