  1. On https://colourrail.co.uk/ there is a photograph of engine 78000 with a passenger train on the Mid Wales Line at Newbridge on Wye, 18-07-1959. Jelle Jan
  2. Yes, I now the Bedford OB bus is 1:50, I checked that by comparing the size of the model with the size of a real one. This lorry is also smaller than 1:43, some say 1:50, others (like Corgi/Vanguards itself) even say 1:64. I haven't been able to check the scale myself.
  3. It's the Thames Trader by Corgi / Vanguards, on eBay many versions are available. This one is Corgi 30201. Click here to go to google images Click here to visit eBay Jelle Jan
  4. There is a photo of the green 03 128 on the internet: https://topticl.zenfolio.com/p240553310/hC1F333D8#hc1f333d8 Jelle Jan
  5. That looks great Alan, now your 3716 only needs a couple of Berry Wiggins tankers, like mine... Jelle Jan
  6. A few days ago a bunch of iron minks arrived in the Netherlands, I'm very pleased with them. Jelle Jan
  7. That photo features another handrail on the other side of the smoke box, also visible on this photo: https://thetransportlibrary.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=38509 Can it still be added to your great model? Kind regards, Jelle Jan
  8. Thanks for the information, Brian, everything clear now. Jelle Jan
  9. I noticed that both Lionheart and Dapol made the wagons without top flap only in a post steam era lettering. However, railway photographs incidently show wagons without top flap between 1960 and 1965. Are these early ones different in details? Otherwise it would be nice to have one or two in my mineral rake... Jelle Jan
  10. I bought myself the Dapol Lightmoor open wagon, it's a great model, high quality in my opinion. Here are some photographs, on one of them the wagon is coupled to the longer Lionheart Cannop open wagon. I'm looking forward to other Forest of Dean versions. Jelle Jan
  11. You could try this web site: https://artcice.wixsite.com/cice Jelle Jan
  12. Could that be this one? https://bestieboy.smugmug.com/Trains/Miscellaneous-Wagons/i-mdjG95p
  13. Many thanx, Richard, I just tried to clip them in with in bit more pressure and they are all in place now. Jelle Jan
  14. Today the postman brought me my first four steel opens, all rivetted, 305A-4, 305B-4, 306A-5 and 306B-5. Most of the three link chains are loose in the box. Can I get them in the hook, without bending them open? I don't find any flat part on the outher links. Thanks in advance for your help. Kind regards from the Netherlands, Jelle Jan
  15. I just found this interesting photograph of Milkwall: https://mikemorant.smugmug.com/Trains-Railways-British-Isles/GWR-and-BRW/GWR-pannier-tanks/i-zCXHfxB/A (Or is it in the Neil Parkhouse book? I don't have a copy of it yet.) Jelle Jan
  16. Another interesting one is in S&W Railway Volume 3 by Ian Pope & Paul Karau (Wild Swan), p.571 NEYLAND R.U. NOT IN COMMON USE A photograph made in Coleford, 7th april 1964
  17. Detailed plans and many great photographs of Milkwall and Sling Branch are in S&W Railway Volume 3 by Ian Pope & Paul Karau (Wild Swan), p.515-537.
  18. Hi Mark, do you mean the photograph by Ben Ashworth, used in BR Steam in Dean on page 75, also used in OPC's Historical Survey of the FoD on page 139? Could it be read as Bristol West Depot? Bachmann did it (with another wagon number) as 33-306: Kind regards from the Netherlands, Jelle Jan
  19. In a couple of months the new OO scale Bachmann anchor mounted tank wagons will come (38-775/6/7). Wouldn't that be a nice base for that Berry Wiggins triple set? I think I see the same tankers in "BR steam in Dean" on page 75. Kind regards from the Netherlands, Jelle Jan
  20. I like the NLS website for this kind of research, containing historical 6 inch Ordnance Survey maps of the whole country, projected on Bing Maps. So I took a look (is that correct english?). Is this the footbridge? http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=18&lat=51.6926&lon=-2.3560&layers=171 Playing with the transparancy, Bing Maps shows the current satelite photo, then looking for the same spot on Google Maps gives a June 2009 Streetview, with a nice footbridge on it: https://www.google.nl/maps/place/Dursley,+Gloucestershire+GL11,+Verenigd+Koninkrijk/@51.6925086,-2.3560
