  1. Why not prop up the tow bar on some bricks or breezeblocks, jockey wheels break and it would fit in with the ambience.
  2. I take it 7050 was a one off and none were built for industry?
  3. I would be interested in a kit of 7050 also if you were to go ahead. How many sales would make it viable?

My reasoning is based on something my old dad used to do when I was a kid (quite a few years ago) He was a prolific tea drinker and he would clean teaspoons marked with tannin from the tea in a steradent solution, this wa very effective in producing shiny teaspoons So logically you might get a similar result with tarnished brass However old teaspoons are not made of brass so one
  6. Not much difference in loading gauge height the highland could build up to 13’3 3/4”. The Rivers and some Castles were built to this height The Drummond 0-6-4T was built to a lower height of 12’9”
  7. If anyone has read “The Broon’s” by DC Thompson about a city tenement dwelling Scottish family they go on holidays sometimes to the “Butt and Ben“
  8. The LMS did build replacement boilers for the GSWR 0-6-2T and some of the Highland tanks were fitted with these. I have read that the reason for their early withdrawal was cracked frames.
  9. Might be better off returning to the seller and getting a refund Those sides are not for a V1/V3
  10. This might be an example of something that someone thought was a good idea at the time, currently on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/372980883903
