  1. Yeo, model the post 1910 proposed GNR, GCR.and GER merger.
  2. Not 299, but still MR... I wrote this to a customer earlier :- Does that seem a reasonable suggestion? And what was the likely number of these wagons built with steel end stations and vertical side strapping?
  3. It seems I have repeated a graphic. The maybe list should have been this one:- The GC diagram numbers where of the form Number Letter Number, where the first number was:- 1 - NPCS 2 - 4 & 6 wheelers 3 - Non-corridor bogies 4 - Non-corridor bogie with lavatories 5 - Gangwayed stock 6 - Self propelled and p&p stock The letter was the carriage type eg:- B - All third L - Composite Q - All first Y - Full brake van The second number was a sequential number for that letter type. The final group of letters is the LNER/BR type codes:- B - Brake C - Composite F - First K (suffix) - Corrdor O (suffix) - Open T - Third
  4. I have etching tools for the following:- ...and these may or may not be OK to etch from:- But in the longer term I plan to do at least some of these as resin prints.
  5. Does this help? It is a later Robinson bogie, but it does show the arrangement of the bolster springs, plank and swing links.
  6. If you do get a saw, you can solder layer of brass together and do all you need in one go. You could even solder an etched part on top to act as a template. I many ways the thicker part sandwich would be easier to cut as thicker saw blades are more robust.
  7. The Form2/3 allows you to print the brake gear and w-irons all in one go.
  8. Looks like a gas tank wagon built on a six-wheeled carriage underframe
  9. Andy Gibbs originally drew these for his Wheatstone? layout and then passed them on to Danny Pinnock, so they would date from the mid 80s.
  10. Bogie foot boards. They only go under the brake van ends. Not sure where the wee wheelie things go. These make up the boogie bolster springs. HTH
  11. Use components instead of bodies. You can then ground one and use joints to fix the position of others relative to the grounded one.
  12. I wonder if employers will start thinking that in people don't need to be in the office their jobs could be done by AI?
  13. Titanium dioxide replaced lead white during the 1950s and 60s in this country. Any paint formulated after that time is unlikely to have contained lead, and especially those intended for modellers, as models legally go under the heading of toys. Whether any of the model paint suppliers made a chromatic correction to remove the blue cast I have no idea, but I find it difficult to believe that their hardest of evidence would have include a chemical analysis of a paint sample.
