  1. As Merfyn pointed out, Graham was a member of the Colwyn Model Railway Club and that is how he came to know my father, Arthur. Dad remembers Graham as a very enthusiastic model railway builder and a character. He remembers one story of Graham, which was the night before an exhibition at the Colwyn club rooms in Beech Road, Graham incorrectly did some wiring and burnt out all the point motors on the clubs 'TT' layout, an issue that was rectified and trains did run the next day. He also remembers that Graham was hands on and willing to learn and try to improve his modelling techniques.
  2. Dennis, This is a truly wonderful development for LNWR Modellers, for whom there is very little in the way of RTR available. I have one question which you may be able to help me with - is the production run of Hardwicke going to have the White Cab roof, or will it be black? Thank you David
  3. Are you scrapping the 00 chassis and wheels?
  4. Why not try the LNWR Society for a drawing. A quick look on their website under the drawing services tab (link below) shows that the drawings below the link might be suitable. http://lnwrs.org.uk/ArchiveDrawings.pdf DLOCO292 LNWR 6ft Four Wheels Coupled Side Tank Engine.

  5. Ruston, I am rather impressed with this motor set up and the ingenuity in using this motor. One thing you dont say (unless I missed it) is where you sourced the two plastic gears for the drive shaft and driving axle. Can you remember the source? Best David
  6. An LNWR Society at home perhaps once the new layout is built? I hope the move goes well and smoothly. I am intrigued as to how the new layout will look with you using the two extension boards. Will it be a roundy or end to end? Is a new station planned? Best David
  7. That will be D316 sorry - I was trying to eat my lunch - reply to you and help a work colleague all in one go Here is an image of Dinas from the Society Collection. SITE 266. Copyright L&NWRS Society.
  8. You are quite correct Jol - M&L did Cornwall, not Lady of the Lake (Problem Class) which was in K's milestone range which seems to command quite a sum nowaways on eBay. It is a very very nice collections of carriages and locomotives, I hope you enjoy them.
  9. The 50Ft Pre printed side is a D373, PC Kit. http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Modelling/4mmcarriages?display_base_mod_photo=4cpcwd373b1 You also have a 50Ft D2216 PC kit http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Modelling/4mmcarriages?display_base_mod_photo=4cratd316a1 One of the ratios is the D316 centre brake 1st/3rd. http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Modelling/4mmcarriages?display_base_mod_photo=4cratd316a1 Another is the D318 which was a corridor composite http://www.lnwrs.org.uk/Modelling/4mmcarriages?display_base_mod_photo=4cratd316a1 Locos: Rai
  10. Excellent work as always, I love watching this thread. Where did you acquire the Archers Rivets from? David
  11. After painting the roof of the brake van thought I would try a technique to blacken it. Quite pleased with the result so next I think two coats of matt varnish and then weather the sides.
  12. Are you doing it as a 1st/3rd or 1st/2nd/3rd? Seats were red, blue and green according to class. I can check which was which when I am at home later on if you do not get an answer beforehand.
  13. Time to bring this thread back to life. Various kits are at different stages of building - in the foreground are various wagons with carriages to the rear at various stages of build
