  1. An example was Writhlington Colliery wagons on SDJR, to run on GWR required a GWR number that they meet GWR standards. Does anyone know if GWR Records exist on the dates such numbers were issued etc. It must have been a practice elsewhere to run on GWR rails. Noel
  2. Re: "PS the IF part is a big if after yesterdays fail, I seem to be getting further away from a good print, but then again I have only had the machine for a couple of weeks." You seem to be taking on a lot with the learning curve for a new machine. I would love one too, in 4mm. I have posted elsewhere to file with Shapeways. Regards
  3. What authority do you have for Brown or Red Oxide

    Writhington Livery.?

      None. I merely referenced the colour applied to the Bachmann wagon, the colour applied to the Cambrian wagon, and compound made a reference to his thread.

       

  4. What colour are the older Writhlington Wagons?
    From WWI it looks like they were grey.
    I can find nothing written about this.
    Regards

      The pictures are only B&W, hence the question
      Is  there any eyeball reference

  5. I thank you all for the replies. "The Picture" is genaerally attributed to 1903; which fits in with what is being reported. I have the Register assembled by the S&DJR Society that gives the Writhlington Numbers. Noel
  6. re. Your research in 2017 on Bratysdown Wagons.

     

    I am currently looking for series for Wagon Numbering.

      Hi Noel

       

      Here is the spreadsheet that will be published next year (I hope) in my next book. It references photos where they are known but otherwise you're on  your own when it comes to actual appearance. That said, the general proportions of the wagons seem similar, unsurprisingly. As for wagon colour, some people say red but I've not seen any official source so I'd plump for black.

  7. WRITHLINGTON 1928 Does anyone have details of the running numbers for the long gone Braysdown Colliery? The Writhlington picture accredited to 1903 shows wagons with Dumb-Buffers. My layout is for shunting operations and is designed for maybe 3 operators. I have room for the few lines in the foreground (not shown), that I have reproduced from old Track Plans. Noel
  8. Always seen Shapeways front-end Staff as "Artsy Fartsy" Business Approach; you have to dig deep to get definative answers. The problem of Conversion rates and how they present Invoices has always been a problem to understand the build-up, and how VAT features. It appears muddled to me. US Dollars are a good Currency to stick with and follow through to Charging. It is how most International Trade is conducted. N.
  9. This was inevitable. All the pointers were there for anyone who has seen this scenario before: Pity!
  10. I am looking for someone to fill and dispatch parts bags to go with 3Dmodels I supply. My current friend is now elderly and becoming infirmed. The tasks are sporadic and piecemeal. All parts, packing and Postage Float supplied. This would be suitable for someone already engaged. Please write:- [email protected]
  11. Hi, Nice to see the Pollens doing service Noel
  12. Andy,

     

    I am 78, a long time member since you appealed for funds to buy a new Server

    - I was flushed at the time and you hit lucky with me.

     

    I am lost on the new layout, and i feel I have lost a pleasure of a good read and exchanges

    on the site.

     

    Could you please consider going back to the previous format - the logic of the current defies me.

     

    Regards

     

    Noel

      Sorry, that is not possible. 

  13. LOL! Looks like this is what it is reduced to. N.
  14. Shapeways now print in HP Nylon and a Bevel Set is performing well with good feedback. N.
  15. My uncle was a wheelwright of the wood kind from the 1930's and restored old road vehicles at Goring-On-Thames into the 1970's when his collection was sold. Oval spokes, YES, hence the "SPOKE SHAVE."
