  1. It's also been said that some train operators prefer a 'neutral' livery for hired-in traction.
  2. It was SJR Models, long since defunct though.
  3. All three have gone this week, 313026 to Sims, Newport on Monday, 313055 on Tuesday night to Booth's and 313050 yesterday to EMR, Kingsbury. All hauled by 57312.
  4. Depends on your period really. The Dapol model of 68005 portrays the original smaller fuel tank that the first five had. These have since been modified with the larger size so nowadays 68005 and 68010 are the same.
  5. That's an entirely standard Class 08 wooden door, nothing unusual about it. The unpainted frame wasn't uncommon on BR green.
  6. If you ran this DRS combo on a layout, you'd probably get a few comments http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReTOelATE0s
  7. It has previously been kept at Craigentinny during the operating season but that is now a Hitachi-owned depot. Remains to be seen if Hamilton is this year's base but it had been there for a month after arriving from winter servicing at Eastleigh.
  8. It was 66743 and 66746 to collect the Royal Scotsman set, which left this morning for Edinburgh to begin its first tour of the year.
  9. Those appear to be the same first livery samples that have been kicking around since last year.
  10. Yes, exactly right for those two. Bulk ballast work for IOAs while JNAs will move fresh ballast or spoil, can also carry recovered sleepers and short rail lengths.
  11. Put 'Blyth Cawoods' in the Flickr search and prepare to open wallet.
  12. Latest Mk.3 formations I have are Unrefurbished passenger sets, most still in FGW dynamic lines blue, a few have lost the stripes, those in GWR green are highlighted. HA01 - 41124 42256 42255 44029 HA02 - 41144 42295 42301 44039 HA03 - 41104 42208 42206 44066 HA04 - 41130 42325 42267 44032 HA05 - 41022 42030 42010 44010 HA06 - 41158 42200 42129 44086 HA07 - 41010 42012 42013 44004 HA08 - 41180 42268 42296 44024 HA09 - 41146 42300 42299 44040 HA10 - 41135 42279 42280 44035 HA11 - 41136 42207 42047 44015 HA13 - 42209 42558 42269 42574 (training use only) Refurbished sets, ScotRail Intercity livery HA24 - 42343 42559 42183 40604 HA25 - 42045 42562 42292 40602 HA26 - 42046 42561 42004 40601 Power cars swap too frequently so don't record those against the sets but still a mix of FGW blue and ScotRail. Both can appear on the unrefurbished sets but only the ScotRail ones can be used on the refurbished sets.
  13. If I recall correctly, decorated samples are due quite soon.
  14. PFAs run to Berkeley pretty much every week, also Dungeness occasionally and the very irregular Southminster workings.
  15. They're in temporary store, Hornsey is full until such time as the 717s get into service and the 313s can be moved away.
