  1. Delete Nos. 5 & 9 from the above! We now have only 1 or 2 copies left of Midland Record Nos. 1, 2, 8, 11, 12, 13 & 14 Remember these are brand new and free UK P&P.
  2. If you have a Facebook account, the view from the cab mentioned above plus an extract from Blue Pullman May be viewed here...
  3. Forward to First Principles (1963) is the go to film for Derbyshire footage including a view from the cab of Type 4 near Bakewell and Great Longstone - albeit too brief! However the LMS publicity department was one of the foremost producer of marketing films of the big 4 in the 1930s. The Southern (which provided many staff for the BTF unit) was the only other producer of note. Here’s a brief clip from “Passenger Trains of the LMS” (1936)...
  4. The above is an alias - the official website is actually... http://www.midlandrailwaysociety.org.uk
  5. Glad to help - we are now down to the last 1 or 2 copies of Midland Records Nos. 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13 & 14. (Plenty of No. 26 and Nos. 29-35). All other issues have now sold out!
  6. All Midland Railway enthusiasts may wish to know that the Midland Railway Society now has an eBay store where over 60 issues of its celebrated journal, plus books, occasional publications and the last surviving stocks of the superb Wild Swan produced 'Midland Record' may be purchased with FREE UK postage and packing (overseas rates on application). The Society purchased all remaining stocks of Midland Record from Wild Swan and they have been selling like hot cakes since we listed them with several issues selling out - time to plug the gaps in your collections while you can! https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/midland_railway_society?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
  7. A little heads-up to Midland devotees that I have started a blog to record my modelling musings and progress updates once I do practical things like buy pieces of 9mm plywood and actually start fastening things to it
  8. Can anyone correctly identify these 2 coach types (on a Derby to Wirksworth service just before it was withdrawn) and if they exist in RTR, please? Thanks in advance
  9. The Midland Railway 2 chains = 1" Line Plans are indeed a work of art and a valuable resource to the modeller. Many are available at the Midland Railway Study Centre in Derby.
  10. Just started a new blog regarding a layout I'm starting to construct...


  11. As I said several pages ago - I can produce replacements in Brass (denser than Mazak too!) if somebody can get a set of drawings to me!

  13. I’m hoping for SLW or now an accurascale version. Or anything where the multiple working plugs are in 4mm scale and not 7 :-)
  14. Brief intro clip here... (available on DVD) https://distrify.com/videos/3VwVm2-black-five
