  1. Great! just leave a long slow freight train , with the engine appearing on the layout just as the last wagon disappears into the fiddle yard!
  2. Great to see you had fun! Did you have a sequence with one dmu and two goods trains? Was there a lot of crane shunting to get the variation in trains? Would be great to hear how you did not get bored!
  3. I see your Freightliner class 86s are a better model than the photo I found! Do you know the history behind the fire extinguishers on the roof? The Freightliner type have one brown cylinder across the roof next to the non pantograph cab. The Virgin type have two larger red or grey cylinders lengthways. When were they all introduced? Did the Anglian and Triple grey RFD ones get them as well? I think we trust the model manufacturers too much sometimes when they miss out detail to make production simpler!!
  4. Sounds hard work , but it will transform the model. Doing this and covering the chassis/ body clips will make people wonder what make the model is. As it surely is not a Hornby!!
  5. Are you going to try to add cab door handles?
  6. Great layout! what is the height from the floor for the fiddle yard and the main layout? I see you are adding storage space under the fiddle yard. Can never have enough!
  7. Hi! Have you started painting your mk4s into WAG white body with red doors yet? Pictures would be nice!
  8. Thanks! So the black sheep of the mk2 family then! A strip and paint to blue grey or mod to regional/ trans peninne is called for. Or sell!
  9. Hi! did any mk2b receive scotrail ? ie executive with the blue stripe instead of red. I have the Lima mk2b TSOT executive buffet, which I know is fiction. Under the mk2c label, would painting the top dark grey in provincial blue be accurate and change the red stripe to light blue? Also how come the mk2b coaches were retired early compared to mk2a? were there non standard components?
  10. At least we know any pictures on the web of multi liveried mk1 based DMUs or EMUs have come from your stable!
  11. Love all these dmu conversions! At least you can run them in their half finished state. Is the paint workshop on strike or on extended leave? Whilst the management debate what shade of green to paint the stock!
