  1. Brilliant, thanks for your help. I’m guessing I would just need one motor bogie.
  2. Sorry if this has been asked before! Bit of a long shot probably but I would like to build a replica of a Class 423 or similar - I am on a low budget. Firstly, is it worth converting my two Triang Blood and custard carriages with sides, ends and new wheel sets? If so I could get two more and convert them too. Would I do better to perhaps buy Dapol kits and modify those? Then of course the train needs to be powered. Is this possible and if so is there a relatively cheap way to do it? I realise that Hornby do a 4-VEP but of course it’s expensive! Thanks in advance. Cheers,
  3. Hi Olddudders, Thanks for your reply. The photo that I found was captioned and explained about the outside cylinders, which I had not come across before - however there is another Pannier behind which is a normal Pannier; at least I now know what livery to do!
  4. Hi Ray, Thanks for your reply and the information. Cheers, Paul
  5. Hi guys, I am doing some research for a layout I am just starting based in the Bournemouth area. I have learnt today that Class 1366 PTs operated, for example, at Weymouth and I have just seen a B/W photo of 1367 which shows BR crests. What I would like to know please is whether these locos would have been green still and if so what exact colour that would be. It so happens that I have a nice Hornby Pannier that would suit the job really well! Thanks. Paul
  6. Folks, I know this subject was discussed about a year ago, where discussions centred around the demise of the Great Western Railway Journal. Do you think there is enough material about GWR of old in mainstream publications and enough online content perhaps about the up to date First Group run GWR company that a separate GWR magazine is not needed, or do you think that there is a market for such a magazine? Should it be a printed magazine or perhaps online only? Pros and cons with both of course. I feel that if a publication did come about, it should cover GWR in the ste
  7. Thanks for the help guys. Here is a better photo. Also, if this is a Grange, would it be inaccurate if modelled as a Manor. Basically, I want to replicate Lydham Manor in BR black as she is now. If this would look wrong, I will refurbish it as a Grange.
  8. Hi all, I bought this locomotive a few years ago as I want to make a static replica of a specific loco. Is it possible to say what make it is and also what motor should I use as I actually want to use it on a layout. Thanks. Paul
  9. Hi all, I hope you can help - I am just starting on a new layout and need to find a red brick skew bridge in OO scale that is big enough for two tracks under and town road above. I have searched through lots of websites but drawn a blank. Is this something I will have to scratch build or is there a solution out there please. I need to keep cost down too but don’t mind card structures. Thanks.
