  1. Hi James, I like the idea of the flying box logo, they will go well with your prototype flat wagons. Which reminds me that I have some Tartan Arrow boxes to get on with. How are the Cemflo's coming along, same as mine, slowly ? Gibbo.
  2. Hi There, My thoughts were that the Kitson-Meyer would be for the South Wales coal traffic and the Garret for Toton-Brent Traffic to supplement or replace the LMS Garrets, with the Mallet hauling the fast container trains on the east and west coast main lines. Gibbo.
  3. Hi Martyn, The Presflo's are the larger variant that were built for transporting fly ash from power stations, the ash is used for building blocks and gypsum plaster boards. The hopper body is two panels longer and they run on a 12' 6" wheel base frame set which is 18' 6" over headstocks. There were both vacuum and air braked versions classed as CSV and CSA, see below: https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brflyashpresflocsv/hbed8c95#hbed8c95 https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brflyashcsa Here is one I built earlier: I did a draw
  4. Hi Folks, Here is some more of my unfinished nonsense: BR Std class 11F, 2-6-0 0-6-2 Kitson-Meyer BR Std class 8F, 2-8-0. BR Std class 4, 0-6-0 0-6-0 Leader. BR STD Class 4, 2-6-2. BR Std class 8F, 2-8-4-0 articulated with booster unit. BR Std class 12F, 2-8-2 2-8-2 heavy coal Garret. Here is one that I finished: BR Std class 12F, 2-6-8-0 fast freight Mallett with Giesel ejector. Gibbo.
  5. Just to look at ! Thanks for the comments also. Gibbo.
  6. Hi Chaps, Actually half built on my bench a couple of years ago before I decided to do something else and not get back to it. Other unfinished nonsense is available upon request. Gibbo.
  7. Hi Steve, For lifts and slides of a large traverser you might want to look at the following gubbins: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/T8-Lead-Screw-Pitch-2mm-Lead-2mm-Stainless-Rod-Linear-Rail-Bar-Shaft-w-Brass-Nut/352300505751?hash=item5206bf1a97:g:Sn4AAOSwv5xbuFeJ https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/T8-Dual-Lead-Screw-Rod-OD8-Linear-Rail-Optical-Axis-With-Horizontal-Bearing-Set/183902987930?hash=item2ad178e69a:g:t0YAAOSw3dtdPu4D https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/100mm-T5x2-Lead-Screw-Nema-11-Stepper-Motor-Linear-Actuator-External-0-75A/393069611816?epid=2298243570&a
  8. Hi There, A two cylinder locomotive would be the kind of thing I was thinking of, I would have thought that the locomotive would ride as a Std five dose reasonably, I would guess that the roll of the Scots is due to them being three cylinder locomotives. You could reduce the cylinder diameter by half an inch to 18.5" X 28" and leave the boiler pressure at 250lb and the TE figure would be equivalent to the Clans or up the cylinders by half an inch and drop the boiler pressure to 225 and be the same as the Clans at 27520lb. Gibbo.
  9. Hi There, Would you be able to do a render that puts one of these boilers onto the Std 5 frame set to see what the Std class 6, 4-6-0 mentioned above might look like ? Gibbo.
  10. Just wait until you find out what she cleans with yours !
  11. Hi Stephen, It might look a bit like this but with a higher running plate and a BR 3 tender: Gibbo.
