  1. I understand the Ultrascale are taking orders for steel tyres, made to specification. Alternatively, I am sure there is a thread here somewhere with someone making reason printed wheel centres which might be of use Jim P
  2. I have only just come across your layout. A most interesting and unusual subject. Your models are superb and, I am sure a great source of satisfaction. Glad to hear you survived 35 years of the NHS - my own experiences varied between NHS, University, NHS, retirement on health grounds, NHS, University and lastly NHS - not so much a career, more a series of errors and/or omissions! Keep up the good work and I hope you fine a permanent home Best Jim P
  3. I know that the 1923 spec. required brakes to be able to be applied from both sides but did the spec. require brakes on all four wheels or just two on one side of the wagon? Thanks Jim P
  4. Dave Elvy of Alba Models took on John Boyle’s Decent Models range. He may be willing to get some coach etches done if you contact him: albarailwaymodels.co.uk Jim P
  5. Great stuff Dave The only thing missing is the rain! Jim P
  6. I wonder if the lack of detail is for strategic reasons - a vulnerable asset in time of war. In the same vein, the Nobel explosives site at Ardeer is just an empty space on certain OS maps, even the railway shown on the map stops at the site boundary!
  7. Wonderful maps on the nls maps site (National Library of Scotland) Look at 25” ordnance survey Jim P
  8. In the 25” Ordnance Survey maps on nlsmaps there is a much more detailed image Jim P
  9. Hi Javier A most interesting thread. What software are you using? Thanks Jim
  10. Scalefour News No’s 178, 179 & 180 Jim P
  11. nls maps has a 25” to the mile map of the station, published 1923, which may be of interest Jim P
  12. I agree, thank you for posting this. One disappointment though, many videos/films of Scottish railways have commentaries by folk from England who cannot pronounce the place names properly! Jim P
  13. There is something about a train of vans which I find really appealing. Unfortunately, in CR days vans were relatively uncommon, goods later conveyed in vans were usually carried in sheeted open wagons- so no van trains for pre-group CR Your work is, as always, inspirational - thank you Jim P
