  1. Thanks Jamie. The 92 means it's a diesel, the 87 means it's registered to a french operator. The rest of the numbers I think will be class number etc. This link goes someway to explaining it. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/UIC_identification_marking_for_tractive_stock I've also seen on t'interweb a whole huge document complete with appendices that explains all rolling stock numbers, can't find it at the moment. I used to have a copy on my desk at work, but.. Enjoying your photos, I do like the single cabs. I would love for Eurotunnel to run a
  2. Hi Jamie, Where are the loco numbers to be found on the ECR G1206, please? It might be me but I can't see them in your photos! Thanks, Paul.
  3. Hi Tex, They were not built with train air brakes, the air brake was just a 'straight' air brake in use on the loco only. Train air brakes were fitted to some later. All were built with vacuum train brakes except for 13092-13101 (D3092-3101). Paul.
  4. Next from the right, is that Andy King? And the guy in the middle with the camera is that 'Swish' from MML control?I Paul.
  5. Is that Grimsby Town looking towards Garden Street crossing? Paul.
  6. Hi, how about the 'Pontnewynydd' vans? The ones with the low roof. I believe they were replaced with two BR ones, diagram 501? One of the BR numbers was B950540. Might fit with your own layout, too? Paul.
  7. "BR blue with lining" - isn't that an oxymoron? Jeepers I hope I can afford one of these! Paul
  8. Said six left when I ordered mine, must be five now! Thanks Strathwood, it's arrived safely. Paul
  9. Grimsby Dock station (for drivers) - I know 'cos I've paid out wages there many years ago as a relief clerk! Paul.
  10. Thanks Meld. Much appreciated, and it confirms it was in the museum at Rotterdam too. Thanks again, Paul.
  11. Hope someone can help me here. The attached photo was taken in February 1993 in the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam. I didn't take a lot of notice of it at the time, but now wish I had. It wasn't there last year. I believe it could be an NS500 because the NS600 has a wider buffer beam. I've trawled the internet and found 4 NS500s preserved in Holland. NS521 at SGB Goes, NS532 at VSM Beekbergen and NS508 and NS512 at NS Utrecht. I don't think it's 521 as on 521 there are some 'sticky-out bits' alongside the radiator which are lower on my photo. NS508 doesn't have them and the buffers look differen
