Finished building a very nice Presflow this week from JLTRT. Just ordered a couple more to keep it company. At around ??????‚??70, complete with wheels and couplings, I think it's very good value. I have done a couple of little mods on it though. The kit is built with "sloppy" axles the same as the CCT but I put some Slaters buffer springs between the axle box and spring casting one end only to give a better chance of keeping all 4 wheels on the deck at once. I also changed the vac pipe for a Slaters one and also made a lamp bracket because there ain't one in the kit, tut, tut! Got hold of a sheet of CCT Transfers today for a bauxite livery one with the Presflow Cement on the sides. EMKDE do some transfers for Tunnel Cement and Blue Circle to go on the side boards they carried but I would think these would have run in block trains whereas the BR bauxite ones would be mixed in with the more general freights I would think.

I would like to see one done in the "Blue Circle" yellow with the requisite advertising board, or will you do it in freight brown.

 

Great looking model though.

 

Terry.

Hi Brian,

 

another great model, wondered what you had been up to as you had been 'noticable by your absence' thase past few weeks!! Can't wait to get back into the workshop once the weather improves, I've almost run out of items that fall into 'allowable in-house modelling' by SWMBO!!

 

regards

 

Mike

Don't worry Mike I have still been busy as you can see in the attached pics of a Model Express OAA. The underframe has had the same build mods as their VAA that I did earlier. I managed to get another VAA kit from them at Bristol last weekend but from what I understand it was the last one he had.

 

Oh and one other thing that's been getting in the way is WORK icon_evil.gif But the way the economy is going looks like we are working on that one icon_sad.gif

Looks very nice. Whilst I agree that in early days the Blue Circles and probably Rugby Cements were in block trains, this was not true in later life. There are some working with BR wagons in the collection

APCM Presflos of 1960 and 1963 ??????????¬???‚¬?“ 10 photographs

http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/show_col ... p?id=66758

 

I have not scanned many of my Presflo photographs - there are a few other collections on the site including the Tunnel Cement, but I have not done the Rugby's. Something to think about when I have some time.

 

Regards

Paul

York

 

PS - And please, there is no W on the end of the name, they were always Presflo...

Hello Paul, don't know where that rogue W came from on the end of Presflo icon_redface.gif Needless to say I did the big search on your site for "plain" presflos and you are right, you are slacking on the scanning old chap icon_lol.gif A lot of what livery you do depends on what transfers I can get. The CCT ones cover the one in the pic below but without the repair details on the right hand upright. Anyone know if you can get these in 7mm and the round yellow "curcuit" working sticker, just below the CPV lettering. Another that nobody does, I think, are the square yellow stickers on the left hand side by the wagon label clip that had all the weight and brake force details I believe. Might do 5 or 6 of these to add to a good old mixed freight.

 

The OAA will indeed be brown with a big arrow and TOPs panel. The other VAA I am working on now will be a VAB in brown again with a through vac pipe on the ends.

Hi Brian,

Both wagons are looking good, icon_thumbsup2.gif I remember seeing OAAs at Eastleigh a fair bit, but were they common all over the UK icon_question.gif Are you planning on doing any other Model Express wagons I noticed they do other vans and an OCA icon_question.gif

 

Cheers Peter.

This will be it from Model Express Peter. I already have an RJH OCA and they do a VDA to go with these 2 VAA's. Damn weather is stopping me getting outside to spray the primer on it icon_evil.gif

You could try M&M Wagons. When I purchased their brass kit for the Presflo they had a set, or two, of transfers for sell as well (I got my wagon at Telford). I didn't get them, so I can't help if they have exactly what you are looking for. On looking at the kit and instructions, I think the JLTRT approach would have been a lot easier icon_confused.gif

I have looked on their site Richard and I had a look on their stand but I can't for the life of me remember what was on the sheets. Unfortunatly they have not got a picture of the Presflo transfer sheets on their website and I seem to remember that they did a couple of new ones that are not on their site either. Maybe I should order a set and see what you get, shouldn't break the bank.

 

Just phoned them and they said If I send them pictures they may be able to make a sheet up icon_clap.gif Just off to sort the files for detail pics now icon_thumbsup2.gif

An update on the wagons I have building recently. The VAA has now been weathered and I am in the process of building another to keep it company. The JLTRT CCT got finished apart from weathering. And I have just finished the JLTRT Presflo. A long time ago I built the other Presflo in the pics which I think was from a DA kit? which you can still get from EMKDE. The roof profiles are a bit different. I also have another 2 Presflo's to make as they are a cracking little wagon. I think I will get 5 at least as the CCTransfers sheet does enough for 5 and at ??????‚??18 a sheet I don't want to waste them. I am putting the transfers on the OAA at the mo but trying to get a picture of them in freight brown livery is a bit of a challenge.

Just finishing a Presflo myself for a review, and although i wont be adding any more to the collection i felt the CCT sheet a little expensive for what i want. however looking at the EMKDE website i found this image (link below) but cannot find a reference to the Tunnel cement on a barge board on a prototype, can anyone shed some light???

Terry.

Which Blue circle livery?

 

I am scanning more Presflo's but as there are a lot, and I'm tied up away from my scanner it will be a couple of weeks before I post.

 

Quite a lot of OAA liveries are at

Hi Brian, lovely wagons mate icon_clap.gif icon_clap.gif . You do modelling a real credit with your stuff icon_thumbsup2.gif . Do you have a parcels rake for the CCT to run in or does it run in a mixed. I would love to see some pics of parcels vehicles. As i will be modelling Penzance 1970's most of my stock will consist of coaches,parcels,tpo's etc. What loco's are you modelling next. I know your after a JLTRT 20, but after that icon_question.gif Deltic maybe icon_question.gif . Are you modelling a particular region or just whatever takes your fancy at the time icon_question.gif . Please keep the pics coming. ( I wish i had my shed and layout so my pics would look better) icon_mutter.gif

Hi Rob. I do have a parcels train coming on with a couple of SPV blue spots, LNER CCT from Model Express, Westdale Guv, I can muster a BG and a BCK (buckeyes together), I do have 2 Slaters PMV's but they are green, suppose I could just cover them in brake dust to disguise it, and a Slaters southern bogie brake. Must take a few pics now the weather is a bit warmer.

 

As for locos, I still have a DJH 31 in a box to do that I really must start but apart from that it is a case of build every loco going I think. When I went bashing I went for a bit everything, never really been stuck on one theme. As you said I think the next JLTRT loco will be a pair of choppers. I have just put a bit of weathering on my 40029 today so I can get and put the windows and cab handrails on it now.

The only one I can do is http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p5272724.html too early for me, I have a youthful memory of seeing a train of them - I think on the WCML when I was crossing it on the North London line at Willesden.

Hi Brian,

 

yet more great models and the incentive I need to get back in the workshop, now that the weather is seemingly getting better!

Looking at Paul Bartlett's pic, http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p5272724.html and your last pic of the Presflo's together, it seems the EMKDE's Presflo roof is quite a bit out icon_sad.gif
