  1. There is a short article about the DRS branded HYAs in the December 2010 issue of Rail Express.
  2. Hornby have a strange mix of DRS Mark 2F coaches announced for the 2020 range. They list a single SO and two BSOs. I would have expected one BSO with a selection of differently numbered SOs in order to form a prototypical rake.
  3. Nuclear flask wagons are covered in detail in Rail Express August and September 2007 issues. Chris
  4. I wonder whether this photo shows the conversion with a tarpaulin cover, immediately behind 47 310: http://www.penmorfa.com/Archive/47310%20Ffynnongroew.jpg Chris
  5. There is an anomaly on the circuit board on (some?) Bachmann Class 105s. Pin 1 and Pin 8 are incorrectly wired and/or labelled from memory and you may find that this is affecting the lights. Turning the decoder plug through 180 degrees worked for me. Chris
  6. Are the Network Rail DVTs actually used much these days? There are a few videos on the Internet of trial runs in 2014/15, mainly with DBS Class 67s, but not a lot after that. Colas seem to top 'n' tail test trains or use RTOV ex DBSOs. Chris
  7. Thanks Nigel. I always thought they were a rather nice representation with a delicate operating mechanism considering they were made probably 50 years or so ago. Chris
  8. Could anybody assist me with identifying the manufacturer of these rather good, for their time, working ground signals (4mm). They probably date from around the mid sixties and appear to be mostly whitemetal castings. They have a diamond logo on the underside but I cannot decipher the inscription within the diamond. Thanks for any assistance. Chris

Turning the plug through 180 degrees might solve it but I've never tried this with a sound decoder. Good luck. Chris
  10. Probably not the issue you are trying to track down but the November 2005 Rail Express has good coverage of Freightliner. This issue had a few articles (prototype and modelling) to mark Freightliner's 40th Anniversary. Chris
  11. That's very helpful, thank you. I wonder if the wagon shown was in use through the Channel Tunnel as mentioned in the Rail Express article as the photo is taken at Wembley? Chris
  12. I can find plenty of photographs of the white PBAs as a single wagon or a pair of wagons in freight consists but such use seems rarer once they were refurbed as JIAs in blue Tiphook livery. Can anybody point me to photos showing that they still worked as wagonloads in the later livery or were they then mainly used in block formations? I've seen the Rail Express article and it doesn't specifically mention later individual use. Thanks, Chris
  13. After a bit more digging I have found an article in Rail Express (December 2011 - page 58) which has a table showing the dispersal of the London Midland Class 150s after introduction of the Class 172s. It looks more likely 150 020 never existed. Chris
