  1. Reference to the IRS Archive gives: No.122 September 1990 Eighteen Inch Gauge Heavyweights (S.Africa) A Light Rly on Stanton Moor, Derbyshire Ley's Sidings (Derby), Hope that this helps, Martin
  2. But beware, there are errors in this drawing, easily identifiable from these photographs.
  3. [quote name="47137" post="3396484" Nowadays the only tool I really curse is the vernier caliper. The micrometer is easier because I need to use both hands and it's easy to use with the right hand; but the vernier somehow begs to be used with the dominant hand - Richard. You could get a left-handed digital one https://www.machine-dro.co.uk/left-handed-digital-calipers-150mm-6.html?gclid=CjwKCAiAo8jgBRAVEiwAJUXKqOYwWTLn25A3FO_NAmxlxjcXpQE2e04-Kx3jA7Stvmv-xSjF0aoxpBoCe9kQAvD_BwE It makes life much easier martin
  4. For those who didn't see it, there was a long thread on the 'construction ' of a model using the Golden Arrow body and a lot of other bits at http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/114917-building-the-chocolate-zephyr-gt3/page-1 and following. The Facebook site seems to be making free with a lot of images without acknowledging their source? regards martin
  5. Hi, According to the diagram posted in http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/114917-building-the-chocolate-zephyr-gt3/page-1 they were 3ft 3 1/2in martin
  6. For a bigger ruler, for bigger jobs, I have this one https://www.therange.co.uk/hobbies-and-crafts/craft-supplies/trimmers-and-cutting-tools/guillotines/jakar-aluminium-cutting-ruler-with-handle#253079
  7. I'm not sure that any barrels have been unloaded, there doesn't seem room for any more.Can anyone identify the wagon behind mink 35415, it seems to have high sides, cupboard doors and a sheet rail? martin
  8. Thanks for this extra info, it certainly adds to that already published. The ILD paper provides some more interesting pictures. I haven't had time to have a thorough search through the NRM list but it looks promising. A YouTube popped up recently, 'Strange Locomotives - British Rail GT3' which has a colour view of the other side! martin
  9. As far as I have gone, the Ceiriog ones have a 'normal' curved end, the Lilleshall ones have something rather different. The photographs of the S&M show trains with groups of 3 plank flat ends and 5 plank(?) rounded ends. There's no suggestion that other wagons were used for the stone traffic.regards, martin
  10. Hi,I've not had chance to reply before now, but I have been going through ps of the S&M looking for POWs too. Breeze Ltd has been mentioned, as has Sydney Yates and Lilleshall. One of the reasons for the continued existence of the S&M was the quarry at Criggion, their wagons, predominantly drop-down 3 plank - not unlike the Hornby BQC offering. Other wagons carried Ceiriog Granite, Granomac and Granoplast liveries. These excited the S&M just south of the Abbey station. Other wagons seen on the S&M include Brentnall & Cleland, Wm Cory, Cory Brothers & Co, and John Pot
  11. Help! Can anyone translate the construction instructions in this piece, please (or advise on further texts)? martin
  12. What an interesting thread. Whilst boning up on the Shropshire & Montgomeryshire Railway, in BRJ 23 from Autumn 1988, p139 I found another Lilleshall wagon in a train at Shrewsbury. regards, martin
  13. Thanks David, I have looked at all of the easily availble Sentinel sources and the history of Coles cranes but there seems to be no other information - hence my request on this forum for further information, regards, martin
  14. 'Hi, Can you provide any more detail on this? I can't see any trace in my Leleux index, I don't want to make a drawing if one already exists, martin
