  1. The Job Centre in Letchworth used have a permanent ad in the window which went something like "young man wanted for inspecting ladies underwear".
  2. I wonder what prototype situation buyers might want to represent. Were the lights controlled from a central point for all compartments, or individually per compartment or lamp. Sounds like wiring for all the options could have been a nightmare.
  3. Even if on that one day Fell looked liked the model but nobody photographed it, Fell still looked like the model. Who is to know?
  4. To almost complete this series of coaches, I have drawn up interiors to suit either my 3D printed chassis or the Roco/Fleischmann Eurofima chassis. There are still half a dozen of the more esoteric types to complete. The linked document also includes an interior and special chassis for the B5uxh driving trailers, and improved interiors for the B6Dux family of driving trailers. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_v91YYY1eEbgqWmpHk23sNxxSNh8u4HT/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_v91YYY1eEbgqWmpHk23sNxxSNh8u4HT/view?usp=sharing
  5. MF Trains make a large range of 3 axle single and double deck car transporters in 1/160. There are two different variants of the double deckers with the early models based on the Spanish version which is wider than the generall Europe wide version. https://mftrain.com/vagones-portacoches-s4//per-page/45
  6. Another candidate for upscaling to 1/148:- https://www.shapeways.com/product/BTATNXSEV/austin-1100-and-gt-for-n-scale?optionId=189379921&li=shops
  7. The likes of Amazon are not all bad. Over the past year I have bought many items through the Amazon shopfront which originated with small retailers. They typically had one shop in a place I would never have visited, and sensibly included with the goods their physical address and website details so I could buy from them direct if I wished. In my local shopping mall there is one retailer in particular who moves from one vacant unit to the next as they arise. I rarely saw anyone in the shop, but in the line for coffee one day, the owner explained that by being able to move to vacant e
  8. That is the sort of Handel he had on his Chopin Liszt.
  9. Mark You probably know that Dapol already produce an NEM Scharfenberg coupler as part of 2A-000-029. You get 6 couplers in three different lengths. Might suit for NEM fitted MUs. It has an Dapol Digest topic. https://digest.Dapol.co.uk/forum/n-gauge-models/accessories/easi-shunt-couplings/7922-scharfenburg-coupler-2a-000-029
  10. The cab end of the CAD shows a Scharfenberg type coupler with a big cut out in the buffer beam to allow it to swing. A working auto coupler of this type would be a first for Farish. The old Poole Farish 158 had couplers attached to the bogie and the air dam rotated with the bogie.
  11. Since I started drawing up the files for 3D printing, I had no intention of duplicating commercially available items, except where those were inaccurate. This was when I was selling through my Shapeways shop. However, now that the files are for home printing or printing in a local 3D print shop, I have decided to complete the range of bodies with the four missing couchette cars and the B6Dd2 second class/baggage car. I think that I have now covered every type including later conversions. To round things off I have drawn up 2 chassis to suit the two different bogie centre options (1

  13. I like the G cramp and caliper vernier GF logo.
  14. I have added the complete range of the driving trailers in the B6Dux family to the range of free N 1/160 print files. Details in this downloadable document. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rRyl8l37VL0oSeEDXqyBtUcZ47XpZi5E/view?usp=sharing This example was printed in grey resin for me by Hexa-cubed.
