  1. GWRJ No.44 (Autumn 2002) Page 233-236 covers in depth the West of England Stores Van No.2 in service and on the last page there is a side ways on photo of No.2 at Taunton. This is the first issue I would go for. Dave
  2. You may have a job doing that M.I.B as the magazine GWRJ is no longed published. You will have to search the second hand market for issues 43,44,46,47 & 58. Dave
  3. There is a photo of this vehicle in Russell's GWC appendix II Fig 459. It is easier to find by Figs than Page numbers. Dave
  4. A bit more information I’ve found from the Wagon Lot book as follows. L146 dia. M32/Q14, L 40’ 03/4” W 8’ 03/4” H 7’2” , w/b 32’, Tare 29.4.0, ordered 13.1.34 completed 20.1.45, Notes Converted from PBV 1113, 71/2 kw diesel set, 98 B cell batteries. Dave
  5. I don't think anyone has mentioned above 'The Prairie Papers'by Ian Sixsmith. Printed by Irwell Press. No.1 covers 3150-3190, 4100-4179 & 5100-5199. No.2 covers 3100-3104, 6100-6169 & 8100-8109. There are lots of photos and details about the classes, although no GA drawings, as K14 has said that is available from GWJ no.5. I do have a copy of this issue but you would be hard pushed to read any of the dimensions. Dave
  6. https://djb-model-rly-articles.blogspot.com/ This is a link to what I was describing in my last post. There is something for everyone in my blog site. Dave
  7. See my articles on my Google blog site, look on the GWR.org web site, latest, date from September last year. Two articles on 6 wheel Siphons first by ‘Sparks’ 1929. Second one by John Lewis, this includes a GA drawing. Dave
  8. The SVR Vehicle is 41990 of which are my photos. dave
  9. I have 4 photos of the one on the Severn Valley Railway, if anyone is interested I’ll post them. dave
  10. Following on from my last post, I’ve worked out how to create my own material types and what settings to use on 10thou & 15thou HIPS. I can get through 20thou far enough to be able to snap out what I’ve cut. I have bought a twin set of the 2mm Kraft blades with a view to using them on the 20 thou HIPS using the white adapter that comes with the Cameo 4 in holder 1. The machine recognises the blade type but the user has to set the blade depth manually. Has anyone successfully cut 20thou with a Kraft blade in a Cameo 4 and what settings did you use? From f
  11. I'm now the owner of the Cameo 4 as of this week, and I've have bought some sheets of 15thou HIPS. Can someone tell me what card type to chose for these or have I got to add a new type? and what settings should I start with, as the Autoblade wont be able to set it's choice. Dave
  12. Hi to Jason & Mike I'm in the process of producing a SVG drawing of Springs using the same method Jason explained in this Topic. The difference is I'm doing this in Gauge 1 for a 6 wheel GWR Milk Siphon. I'm using the latest version on Inkscape 1.0.1 and the Path Union has worked for me but there doesn't appear to be an Undo except using Ctrl Z several times. Break apart doesn't have any effect. Am I missing something. I only need the Springs and they will only be cosmetic. In G1 there are very few add extras available so this seems a good way to produce them. Dave
  13. Could some one tell me how to get to previous post numbers.

      Hi Pilou

      I've tried your suggestion but it failed to goto the post. I entered 1622243 which was at the end of the hyper link.

      This should have gone to a JCL post on the 12th OCT 2014.

      Hi Kada33,


      It seems you need the full link so you can change the number at the end. Perhaps if you put the question up in the site notices section (I think I have that right), Andy Y or some of the more clever ones than me might tell you how to do it - if it can be done!

      Thanks for the reply Philou.


  15. See the John Lewis articles on Siphons in my link below. See also the 'Sparks' article of September 1929 on six wheeled siphons. https://djb-model-rly-articles.blogspot.com/ Dave
