  1. Hi Peter. Just found this thread, wow your modelling is unbelievable. There was a wooden kiosk on the grassed area to the right of Leeman Road bridge that sold Newspapers, sweets and probably cigarettes, i remember buying sweets there after bunking York shed in 1969, it was still there when i moved to York in 1976 think it went in the 80's. i would have thought it would have been there in the 50's, i would imagine hundreds of Railwaymen .would have passed it everyday.

  2. Back in the 80's i had a Prototype Models card kit based on Heckington Station building not sure if it's still available also had one of their signal box kits, not sure if it was Heckington.
  3. I lived near Scarborough until work took me away in 1976 i have some spotting notes from the early 70's will try and dig them out . Think the 08's arrived after i had moved away.
  4. The 4th shunter seems to have a different roof profile to the 08. Class 11 ?
  5. Scarborough came under York District and always had York shunters , can't recall seeing a fuelling point there unless it was in the Gallows Close goods yard complex.
  6. Back in the mid 70's an 03 worked a Scarborough to York passenger train as far as Malton where a loco from York took over, consisted of two coaches after the booked DMU failed. Think it's well documented , can't remember the number
  7. Advert in August Railway Modeller PC90 coming soon. Nearly fell asleep typing this.
  8. Realised my mistake after i posted, now amended, some R&R speakers are 8 ohm others 4 ohm, believe the V4 uses 4 ohm
  9. Would be better if you asked in POWER, CONTROL & DCC Forum, in DCC Sound section
  10. Hi Al. Barlow near Selby was on the Selby to Goole line which as you say closed in 1964, the section to Barlow remained open as it served the railway tip which i believe dates back to LNER days, asbestos was found there in 1983 and it was covered in tons of soil. It is now a nature reserve Drax Power Station uses part the line east of Barlow where a connection was made to the old Hull and Barnsley line. Graham
  11. Full page advert in May's Modeller, the previously used one '' Peco Aces It Again'', also a half page advert showing a picture of both slips and the long crossing with the caption. Arriving soon at your local retailer. Looked out of the window as i typed and saw a Pig fly past.
  12. 2 car + 3 car passed through Selby a few minutes ago on a Hull to K&WVR working
  13. Thank you Paul, will pick up the Hornby Magazine when i'm next in town. Regards Graham
  14. Hi AMJ. I also purchased the J72 Sound Decoder at Pontefract show along with a stay alive capacitor, do you happen to know the stay alive connections on the PCB. Regards Graham
