  1. Guy, I have had a response from Daniel at 3D Printingcorner and he is currently working on my request. I painstakingly went to some extreme lengths to get the correct measurements in order to have the 4mm version as per the real thing. I felt that this was important as the bridge is all accurately to scale. A friend of mine still lives there and he very kindly stopped one day recently as he was passing and took a full set of measurements so I've been able to give Daniel some spot on stats. I'll post a couple of photos when I get them. Paul C.
  2. These units were in service on the Sheerness branchline from 1959. Can anyone suggest numbers of the ones that worked on this route from the start of electrification please? Paul C.
  3. Suggestions please for iron railings (4mm scale) for my lift bridge. I've had an initial search but would like to get something that's as close as possible to save scratch building. Thanks. Paul C.
  4. Mick, I've just looked on their website and it comes up in three formats, all tinned. Do you know if they do it in a spray at all? I'll go over to Great Yarmouth in the morning and get what I need. Paul C.
  5. Thanks for that Mick, I'll get some over the weekend if their stores are now open. Paul C.
  6. Can anybody give me some suggestions please as to the best type of red oxide to use on structures/buildings/rolling stock etc.... I'm painting some plate girders on a lift bridge and they ideally need a base coat before applying the main colour. Any hints and tips will be most welcomed. Thanks. Paul C.
  7. Does anybody know of a sound decoder that would be suitable for this model please? So far I haven't managed to find one for D class. Paul C.

    Thank you all for your responses, I have now found them although having read your comments I think I can be excused for my initial failings. Paul C.

    Andy, I did look on their website but was looking for specific bullhead ones. I didn't realise they don't exist.

    Can somebody please point me in the right direction as to where I will find the free templates for Peco code 75 Bullhead. Thanks. Paul C.
  11. With regard to the paper mills at Sittingbourne and Kemsley can anybody tell me which is the correct terminology please, is it Bowaters or Bowater? Paul C.
  12. Can anyone tell me which particular issue of Modern Railway magazine contains an article on the Bowaters china clay slurry tanks going back to 1966. Eighteen of these were introduced initially with another two being added in 1971. I have been told that a good article including several photos of them in their original Bowaters livery appeared in a certain issue but I need to find out which particular one it was. Any information on this would be very much appreciated, thank you. Paul C.
  13. Hi All, I'm trying to find some of the old Triang-Hornby Bowaters slurry tanks (R668). If anybody knows of any that are available could you please give me a shout, thank you. Paul C.
  14. Hi Andy, Here's an update on what you are looking for regarding the Queenborough/Rushenden bus route. I've found some photos on a local website that confirm my previous comments, route numbers were indeed prefixed with a 3 at some point (probably early 80's). I cannot find a photo of a 354 but it shows a 362 to Rushenden. In my time the 62 was a Sheerness to Leysdown route but I found a 362 displaying Rushenden. That service was extended by the looks of it and ran from Leysdown into Sheerness and then onto Rushenden. I reckon there must have been a 354 so to cover Rushenden Road you've two options, 354 or 362. If you go onto Trevor Edwards Sheppey Pictures and click on "Buses" you'll find the afore mentioned. Regards, Paul.
  15. Cheers mate, I've just sent them an email so will await their reply. Paul C.
