  1. Our pack C has 910059 , 910325 and 910374 none have Railfreight logos , would have liked just one wagon with it on , i have some transfers so not a problem really , but something the buyer should not have to do when they were advertised as such , also we had them on pre order but had no email or contact from Rails , so cancelled the pre order and ordered straight off Rails and were delivered in 3 days .
  2. I would assume so , probably off cuts of tube made at Corby , there was a flow of scrap from BSC Ravenscraig to Aldwarke when Ravenscraig closed that used HSA ( ex HEA ) , SJA and SPA wagons to carry slag , note the SPA with what looks like lumps of slag from the slag ladles that has not been broken up , if you search Flickr for ' Ravenscraig scrap ' you will find more pics of this train
  3. A bit early for you , but in the late 1980's there were quite regular stone trains from iirc Stoke Gifford to Machen quarry with ARC PGA and a few ex bulk salt PGA mixed in , I have a photo somewhere , will see if I can find it for you , as said above about the Tilcon trains , I remember seeing the Tilcon PGA wagons through Newport , poss with a pair of class 37 upfront . The other PGA I saw through Newport were a rake of the ECC PGA that worked from Croft quarry , I think they went to Marcroft at Swansea for repairs. The Redland self discharge train used to work to Cardiff Tidal sidings bu
  4. MEA ran from Corby to Aldwarke with scrap , these were the EWS ones , only seen one picture of this train
  5. I have had a look at the couplings , it is on one end of a wagon only , there is / was a slight downward drop , I have checked the others when coupled up they are fine , taken the NEM out and give it a slight bend upwards , that has solved the problem ! A great addition to our steel wagon fleet , will run these with some BZA and JSA opens so well done for making these wagons , the BBA has quite a few variations that could be made .... Just need someone to make the BVA coil / slab wagon now
  6. My BLA wagons have the same problem with the buffers , some pointing upwards others seem to have no glue and are nearly falling out , not a great problem as I can stick them back in , I don't know if it's just me but the couplings on one end only droop down ?
  7. Hello all , i have set up a Facebook group dedicated to the modelling of the metals era from the late 1980's onwards , topics will be wagon types , traffic of all types of metals , locos , modelling loads , layout ideas based on actual locations , we have 100 plus members so far , if you have an interest hopefully the following link will work for you to join Regards Baz https://www.facebook.com/groups/950962518665076/?__cft__[0]=AZXABj--SPQYN5MFZLPpycjtch6EIcApKz7_kwUlDDZ0Mw4AWkxUoBG4hWYVSYUOF_xCuiauiPtp1vdQLVCKcoqing7gMSKy2jjOWzwuWXScsENPP8TdYODSE-zhqtmDIISpwblECIXiBuO_8cjzRChBTsio

  10. Does it look too big or about the right size ? if i had the time i would make a silicon mold and try casting them...
  11. Ingot made many years ago , maybe slightly too big , but can be sanded down to a more acceptable size
  12. I tend to make my own loads , slab is made from 4mm PVC board as used in advertising signs , sprayed various shades of grey , 4mm gives you a slab depth of 1ft so prob just about right thickness , cut to various lengths as some slab can be very long ! , coils can be made from card cut into strips of various widths and wrapped around a tube or shaft @ 10mm , stick the card with pritstick paper glue as you roll them up , painted with either grey or polished steel paint , strapping made from thin sticky labels cut into 0.5 mm strips and stuck on , a dab of red paint for the banding clip , use
