  1. Naturally not - an honourable exception. John Isherwood.
  2. In BR days, the shafts connecting the outer axles to the inner axles were removed. CJI.
  3. Judging by what I read on this website - the vast majority! CJI.
  4. I think that the cardin shafts referred to are the cosmetic ones - not the functional ones. CJI.
  5. Is this the Steve Knight / Kitmasterbloke? John Isherwood.
  6. Until relatively recent times, Cambridge Marshalls Airport (Newmarrket Road) had emergency gates mounted on NG skip chassis, so that they could be rolled quickly to one side in the event of an incident. I'm pretty sure that they were recovered for refurbishment - possibly by the local FR / WHR support group. John Isherwood.
  7. Try reading back up the thread - all your questions are answered there! CJI.
  8. Thank you, Craig, for that correction - it's an age / memory thing! The Brassmasters connection was that I obtained the etches with the intention of fitting them to, amongst other things, a BM Black 5 - which is STILL incomplete after all these years! CJI.
  9. Be aware that the etch is steel - I have quite number of them myself. I think that the etch was produced as an aftermarket item for the Brassmasters Black 5. The use of the etch is covered in the MRJ issue that featured the BM Black 5, I seem to recall. John Isherwood.
  10. The point that 'The Johnster' was making is that the model is not painted as such - what you see is the colour of the bare plastic. It will there fore be difficult / impossible to match that effect with ANY paint. Your best bet is a complete repaint. CJI.
  11. Have you clicked on the pre-order tab? Mine is there. CJI.
  12. Don't make me laugh - I don't leap to anything at my age, and I've absolutley nothing to defend. Clutching at straws, methinks! CJI.
  13. I get the distinct impression that you wish the plastic chair / plywood sleeper method of track-building to be something that it never was. Plywood sleepers were intended for rivet / cast cosmetic chair construction; plastic sleepers were intended to be paired with plastic sleepers. More than a few modellers find that plywood sleepers combined with plastic chairs will produce perfectly acceptable track - though perhaps not with the degree of robustness that you demand. Yer pays yer money and yer takes yer choice - don't have a tantrum if the real world fails to match up to your expectations! CJI.
