  1. I just had a look at Paul Bartletts site and I see they are a bit different in profile. Never knew that tbh, I thought it was just the ends, now the question is do I make the ends look right and just accept the body shape wont be spot on? Painted and transfers applied will it be noticeable?
  2. Silo wagen works as well. If Hornby had any sense they could possibly do well if they reproduced these wagons even unpainted.
  3. One was from a German seller(possibly the same one you bought from) and the other two from a seller in France. How hard are they to take apart? Im thinking of doing Grainflow version though I noticed the ends are different so may have to have a think about the rebuild.
  4. I love this thread Ive managed to buy 3 of the Electrotren Polybulks in the last week on Ebay from out of Europe(best done before Brexit kicks in proper haha) They are very far and few between though. Some in the states but they want a lot of money for them.
  5. Hello Simon, just curious do you do the Gloucester Fast Freight bogies in 4mm scale? If you do what price are they?
  6. That's taking research to the extreme hiring a chopper to get some pics!
  7. Yes well things have actually moved on a tad and building will commence soon, been buying stock etc so now have enough to possibly keep Pendon sorted out for a 1980s feel... Got myself a DCC set up. Space is the big one, have a 13' x 6'6" space in an L so planning on triple deck, FY down the bottom, Yard with stabling and possibly with a small wagon works to give licence for anything to turn up. Branch off to a Clay works and Freight depot maybe a couple other industries (cement, oil maybe) depends how cluttered it looks connected with helixs. So expect a few questions regarding your underlays
  8. What a small world it is, I grew up in Lyme though its not the town it was tbh. Great looking layout Ian, Ive been trawling my way through from the start.
  9. Went up to Exeter and back today on the train and theres a reasonable sized rake of flat wagons(Ferry type) complete with what I assumed was log cradles on them in the engineers sidings at Newton Abbot, from a search I think they are KSA's. Is there more logs goings out of Heathfield? Didnt get a pic sorry, I forgot till the last minute on the return journey.
  10. That is quite possibly the most stupendous reason ever to visit a model shop. Brilliant! I was gutted to read the shops shut as I'll be in Exeter every week soon. Bought a few things in there if I was in Exeter and Dave seemed like a top bloke.
  11. Looking at some kit built wagons listed on EBay Wheatley. Going by your response I might be better off avoiding them...
  12. Probably a very random question but how hard (if at all?) and what would be involved converting P4 stock back to 00 gauge? Tia for any answers to my query.
