  1. I think the 125Group are looking to do that: https://www.125group.org.uk/
  2. The GWR Modelling Web pages have a section on coach liveries. This page mentions painting of axle boxes: http://www.gwr.org.uk/liveriescoach1928.html which might help you decide. Regards
  3. Hi, Regarding a single power bogie, no idea; however if you look here you might find an appropriate chassis for your unit: http://www.replicarailways.co.uk/home Regards Richard
  4. Super work, has inspired me to do somethin with my B's. Seeing as the bodies are off have you considered installing light bars too, to show of the upholstery and passengers?
  5. Hello, have you considered taking one of the seated drivers in Bachmann's Train Crew set "Bachmann Branchline 36-407 1950s Train Crew x 6" and painting his jacket / upper overalls white? Once placed in the cab I would wager that the fact the Ice Cream Coat isn't knee length isn't noticable. By the way, what are you using for a sound chip? I too am looking to fit my Blue Pullman with sound. Regards, Richard
  6. Hi Jamie, here are some shots of the final drive gear box (...631 & ...632) looking from the other side, as well as one of the hyfro-kinetic brake housing on the leading bogie under the cab (...629) … Note the double arrowed bearing cap on the gearbox. Regards Richard.
  7. Thanks to Onefunkyman for this very useful topic. I have just got round to chipping my Caerphilly Castle, (having kept in the box for a couple of years) only to find that Railmaster can't read the CVs. I too had run it in successfully on DC before hand. Thanks also to Matt Roe for the hint about disassembling the plug with the aid of a scalpal. This meant that the fix was quite straight forward which has saved me a lot of faff trying to contact the manufacturer. With regards to the quality control at the manufacturer, I wonder if the Caerphilly Caste batch may have been on the whole poor - my tender would not come apart because the cab end hand rails was glued to the chassis and when I was finally able to prise it apart the water tank filler flap fell off - is this what is meant by "Special Edition"? Alas Onefunkyman's sentiments about boycotting the products whilst understandable may be in vain, I have also tried chipping another manufacturer's GWR ROD 3000 2-8-0, which showed the same symptoms - not reading CVs in program mode. A trial in normal mode using the default address resulted in blue smoke and a short circuit....
