  1. Thanks Jeff. It should be available give Phil Radley a call.
  2. Another project now complete is the 1926/27 standard stock trailer. Also available from Radley Models. It comes with flush glazing. It can be used as a 58 trailer which ran with the 1938 stock on the Bakerloo till 1974. It has new bogies which reduces the ride height to match the EFE 1938 stock. Looking forward to making mine up into a 58 trailer.
  3. Some photos of the new flare sided cars now available from Radley Models. Also a work in progress photo of the trailer which is nearing completion. Flush glazing is now also available. There is a single piece underframe section for the Q38 stock with the compressor and contractor banks. A PCM piece for the CO/CP stock is available along with the Metadyne O/P underframe.
  4. One project I wanted to do was to lower the underframe equipment to make it more realistic. It’s simple enough to just pack out the chassis and cut away the edging of the one piece. Thankfully the edging looks like the top of the PCM box and grid resistances when cut back looks ok.
  5. I had the idea several years ago to improve the EFF trains. The grab rails are terrible and there are a few mistakes on the bodies. I was firstly going to respray a 1962 stock pilot set with a green driving motor. Next I wanted to respray a six car 1938 stock set. I had to do this for the reasons above but also to include a 58 trailer and also a 1949 stock UNDM which I was going to use a 1959 stock NDM (with scratch built bogies). Obviously to get the red to match only a respray would work. It seems that others got wind of this and I have ended up doing lots o
  6. That was my understanding too. The smaller dimensions of the original Central London Railway tunnels caused the positive rail to be slightly higher up on the tunnel ring.
  7. Has anyone tried the Bachmann Underground Ernie spare motors?
  8. Slightly off topic but I have just been given the ok to refresh the 1931 standard stock trailer with new chassis and seats in the same why as the 1926/27 trailer. The body will also be amended to be closer to the prototype. The current version is here and will look very different when I’ve finished with it!
  9. Thanks Clive I’ve got one myself to make up. The kit will come with glazing as I made a full sheet for it! I understand that there are delays to the glazing due to COVID. Perhaps ask in a week or two and see if it’s arrived. attached is the glazing template.
  10. For Met rolling stock try the Snowdon book we’ll worth it. In the 1930s the Met had a good variety of rolling stock. MW stock 1927-1932 in 7-8 car trains with a motor car at each end. Some had flush steel panels (1932) and some mouldings (1929-30) MV stock three trains from 1927 which vacuum brakes and Dreadnought coaches converted to MW stock in 1935 (available from Radley Models) Circle Stock 1913-1921 (mostly) renovated in 5 car trains for the Circle service (also available through Radley) W stock MW motor cars with Ashbury/Bogie stock t
  11. Radley Models do 1960 Cravens Stock although it is not on the site he must have some left. The new 1927 trailer from Radley Models I redesigned and amended the bogies specifically to fit the same ride height as the EFE 1938 stock so it could be used as a 58 trailer. The 58 trailers all began life on the a northern but were moved to the Bakerloo as intended by the early 1940s. Attached are the pre-production photos which show the jumper boxes inside the saloon. These were removed for the 58 trailers but on the normal 1926/27 standard stock trailer these are added
  12. Sounds good. The 7mm car you did was excellent. I assume the 1956 bogies had rubber suspension like the 1959/62 tube stock.
  13. From Underground movement by Paul Moss here is a Q27 (ex K) interior which is mirrored from the centre of the car to the driver and guards ends. There should be plenty of photos on the web of the museums Q23 (ex G) interior.
  14. Thanks for this very interesting. I understand that probably a little earlier than 1919 the Met was using reconditioned Jubilee stock in 9 coach formations to fill in for stock shortages. I guess the stock on order was the 1920 batch of Dreadnoughts which allowed more bogie stock to be converted to electric working.
