Have done a few pictures today!

Only the goods trains are started as Dapol aren't producing their "B" set coaches at the moment and I can't find any for sensible money. as my setting is the 1940's much of my stock is weathered to give it a more dirty and battered appearance as befits a railway which is busy with the war effort and where resources for maintainance and cleaning are limited.

I have a pair of kits for coaches formed in B sets. They are from 5522 etches and have quite a lot of detail parts. You can have them for very sensible money if you would like, just drop me a pm.

I would also appreciate any advice on couplings for this lot. I will be using electromagnets or permanent magnets with DCC control of locos and maybe the uncouplers, probably NCE powercab.

I would recommend DG couplings for 2mm. They have been proved over time. One of the 2mfs blogs did a feature on them. I know Missy has used them on Highclere. You should look at her blog if you are into small scale models.

This might be of interest to you for a B-set I saw a pack today and thought they looked good. I won't be buying them though as I already have 2 sets of the originals.

The show was good, but Avonwick was generally behaving badly, never mind I think I now know what I need to do to progress the layout.

Sorry to hear it misbehaved. Did you get your stock finished in time? Monster box was used for the elephants on the circus train to Kingbridge, both pre-war and into the early 50,s. This would be a fun use for it!
