I have also collected many of the catalogues and am attempting to make sense of them. Now I do know that some of the items shown in the catalogue were never released (e.g. J50 Loco), but what I have also found is inconsistencies in the catalogue numbers used from year to year. The numbers that I have found which seem to have different items allocated to them, with the catalogue years that show the differences are;
#461 73-74=Twin Tank Cement Wagon/FF SS, 1976=Closed Van/Ovomaltine
#468 73-74=Refridgerator Van/Transfesa, 1976=Refridgerator Van/Lederer Brau
#471 73-74=Refridgerator Van/Kronenbourg, 1976=Refridgerator Van/Tuborg
#320602 78-79=7 Plank Wagon/Glasshoughton, 80-81=7 Plank Wagon/Black Park
#320604 78-79=7 Plank Wagon/Oxford District Gas Co, 80-81=7 Plank Wagon/Barrow Barnsley
Is there any concencus amongst lima collectors as to which are the correct numbers and descriptions - or is this just a genuine reuse of the numbers that we have to live with?
Also, are there any web sites out there dealing with the Lima N gauge range and/or the collecting of these models? I have found some for HO/OO, but nothing really for N.
