  1. Hi All, Just to let you know that I managed to pick up three short and two long coaches from eBay for a really good price. Starting to build my collection. Regards, Jed
  2. Woops, meant Benina short coaches, not Albula Regards, Jed
  3. Hi All, Did/does the RhB use the short Albula coaches on other lines, such as the Bergun Preda section? Regards, Jed in Australia
  4. Thank you very much for your replies. Regards, Jed
  5. Hi, No, no window glazing. Regards, Jed
  6. Hello All, I have been given a Mallard locomotive only, in Garter blue, but missing the tender. The loco is less than 10 years old. It is loco drive and has an eight pin dcc plug ahead of the motor. It also has sprung front buffers and a fixed rear truck with flangeless wheels. Can anybody let me know the likely model number of this item so that I can order a replacement tender? Regards, Jed
  7. Hello All, I have recently purchased some Jouef CIWL cars with model numbers 5300 restaurant, 5301 sleeper, 5302 2nd class, 5307 sleeper and 5308 sleeper. These appear to be the longer, more accurate versions. Most are plain blue with grey roof, but some cream upper body sides. Is anyone able to let me know where the real versions of these ran, and in what formation? Regards, Jed in Australia
  8. Thanks Andy, I bid on these but missed out. I think I will go with the Modelisme Collections aftermarket versions. Regards, Jed
  9. Hello All, I am looking at purchasing some Jouef coach interiors. They have model numbers 2500, 2501 and 2502. I know that they are relatively crude, but they suit the time. My question is which coaches do they suit? I can't find that reference in catalogs. Regards, Jed in Sydney Australia
  10. Hi All, Sydney is in Australia! I can confirm that it would be the black version. I will have a look at the answers and come up with some more questions. Regards, Jed
  11. Hi All, I am looking for a DCC system for my collection. I think that I have decided on the black Z21, but thought I would just post on here for confirmation. I will post the details of what I am planning below. - Layout will be around the walls in a 3 by 4 metre room, with a station based on "Minories" down one of the long walls - Majority of stock is 80's vintage Jouef, so fairly basic with no advanced features such as sound, but I do have some newer models with sound. Approx 50 locos - I want a hand held unit, not a desktop type. - I do want to be able to consist (double head) I think that the only other system I would look at would be the NCE brand. I welcome any comments or thoughts from any users. Thanks very much for your help. Regards, Jed in Sydney
  12. Hi All, I have just purchased a Lima golden series TGV that has damage on the trailing unpowered power car. I need to know how to remove the body. I have already removed the two screws holding the under body section. Does anybody have any suggestions? Regards, Jed in Sydney
  13. Thanks All, I will research all those leads. Off to play with my Peco track templates! Regards, Jed
  14. Hi All, Thanks for the reponses. I will certainly look into that location I am also looking for information such as facing crossings were never used, three way points were always used (to give two possibilities, of which I have no idea whether they are correct or not). Did France have left side running on double track? By the way, the layout will be set in the late steam period, using mostly Jouef locomotives. Regards, Jed
  15. Hello All, I am finally about to commence my first proper layout. I am planning to do a version of the classic Minories, but set in north eastern France (very loosely). My plan is a slightly wider version, with at least one more platform on the side opposite the loco spur and single box, and more goods or parcels facilites on the kick back siding. Track will be Peco code 100. I would like to know if there are any signature track formations that I should include, or any part of Minories as drawn that is not French in formation? Thanks for your assistance. Regards, Jed
