Hi All Clacton unit fans. I am a wee bit stuck, I am trying to work out what is what under a Class 309 Motor Brake Second. I have a reasonable drawing, from Lyn Brooks series on GER EMUs in the GER Journal that shows the compartment side of a MBSk, and I have loads of photos of the compartment side. I only have a few 3/4 view photos of the corridor side. I am after a side on photo or a drawing showing the equipment on the corridor side. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

 

The Driver Motor Brake Second Corridor of a 2 car unit has the same underframe.

 

All my own photos of AM9s show the compartment side, why didn't I check all those years ago I had both sides.

 

I can't even crib off the Britannia Pacific Models 309, he appears as lost as me to what goes on underneath.

I think the litter might be slightly different.

 

See what my problem was, every photo I have was of this side the compartment side, pre-reurbishment.

 

I say was, Mike Edge, Paul Wade (Lyddrail) and Andi Dell (Dagworth) have been really helpful.

Now to draw the bits, then make 3 sets.

Would this be of any help?

 

EDIT: Check out the Class 309 (Clacton) Flickr page: https://www.flickr.c...@N22/pool/page1 - You'll find LOTS of interesting photos there, I even found one with a Wrap Around Yellow Cab!

 

I found this too: https://www.flickr.c...ol-1683283@N22/

 

I even made a song about it: PERFECT FOR WHAT'S COMING SOON!

 

Dashing through the snow
In a clunky old Clacton!
On the rails we go,
Clunking all the way.
All the tracks are squealing,
Annoying everyone.
What fun it is to ride and sing,
A Clacton song tonight, O!

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a clunky old Clacton! 

 

Hope you like it!

Hi DD

 

That's my mate Andi's Clacton, we were discussing them in depth at Warely the other day.

 

I hadn't come across the shot of teh one in the snow at Colchester. A 302 on the Clacton via St Botolph's service is a wee bit different.

Clive,

Look at page 15 of this diagram shows the trussing, although it doesn't specifically show the equipment, it gives an idea of the base of where the equipment is stored. The video below may help too.

Hi DD

 

I supplied the diagrams for Barrowmore gang to use.

 

Thanks for the video link, they look so so wrong up north, they should be bombing along doing a ton as the zoom through Kelvedon and Marks Tey.

Almost finished drawing the corridor side of a MBS underframe. It still needs some pipe work added. Thanks to Mike Edge, Paul Wade, Kelly Harding and Andi Dell.
