  1. Hi everyone, Great thread. I seem to have built a collection of green Scottish diesels but I wonder if any photos exist of a Clayton and either Class 21 or preferably 29 working in multiple.
  2. That's a very strange decision! Well, I guess Rule 1 will have to apply, lol. Thanks Russ,
  3. Hi Russ, Yes they were originally Red Diamond, while the 21/29 was originally Red Circle. I haven't worked out whether the re-engined ones were rebuilt as Blue Star. Steve
  4. Morning, I've just found this thread. In theory is it possible for Blue Star fitted Claytons to work in multiple with Blue Star fitted Class 29s? Steve
  5. David, I have a computer PSU with both 12v and 5v outputs and wondered about using this for model railways but I've been told it's not as simple as it sounds. Can you advise, please? Steve
  6. Hi everyone, I've just found this great thread, curiously whilst trying to find another on Prototype Question forum! The one I was looking for was about cement works traffic at Southerham. Steve
  7. Evening all, This is a brilliant thread! I remember hearing about a Newhaven based driver who was shunting the van train and ended up spilling Transits all over the yard! C126 mentioned Motorail flats, there used to be a Newhaven-Stirling service. As for the excellent track diagrams, I remember seeing a turntable well in Seaford yard, there's a brick wall but it could be seen from the top deck of the bus. This would have been around '84 but it had gone by '87 when I began working in Seaford. The yard has been built over. I'm going to Seaford tomorrow I'll have a look from t
  8. Bernard, That Minx is outstanding, I thought it was an Oxford new release at first glance! Steve
  9. Thanks Johann, that's very useful, I'd better get on to their website but I might have to wait a while to pick it up. Steve
  10. Evening everyone, I'm enjoying this thread but I have a question. Does anyone know of a match for Ulsterbus blue? It's a mid blue, not dissimilar to Jones of Aberbeeg. I know the cream/ivory is a Cherry/Precision colour. Steve
  11. Hi achil, Yes, you're right. I didn't put that very well. I remember reading many years ago about Alexander's Riviera Blue and Trader Ivory but that may be wrong. It is the blue I need a match for, Model Bus Zone lists Cherry/Precision paint as having a match for the ivory. Any ideas on the blue? I found this site useful for NIR blue locos and Revell paint. Steve
  12. Hi everyone, I've been following your posts for some time and they bring back memories of travelling by train in the 1970s. I've recently received the Colourpoint book on Ulsterbus -The Heubeck Years and was wondering if anyone here knows a paint match for Midland Blue which I understand is an Alexander colour. Ivory is available and listed on Model Bus Zone website. I'm asking on this page as I thought more of you would be likely to know than on the Road Vehicles page on the main site. Regards, Steve
  13. Hi 'Chard, That's great info but are you sure about Class 21 and 29? It would make more sense that 21 were Red Circle, and the re-engined ones (Class 29) were Blue Star. Steve
  14. Hi Arun, I took these at Rudgewick Steam and Country Fair a few years ago. Steve
