  1. John This looks really great welcome to N gauge the 17 is a lovely model love trains and aircraft looking forward to seeing the Harriers are you going to get a coach or some wagons for your layout
  2. Sorry I don't have any answers but a few things i think maybe likely are most branches were 1 engine in steam if there was an extensive yard a shunting locomotive may have been present for most of the day Also consider slip working i am not sure how common it was as you needed double the amount of wagons but this did mean the train engine spent a short amount of time at the mine
  3. Guys Can anyone help i am. Looking for some pics of a bespoke weedsprayer Wagon from late 90s it featured in a photo in rail magazine with a coal sector class i think it may have been an SPA wagon modified and it may have been at Didcot i have already checked Paul Bartlet site but came up with nothing also google check found nothing

Guys DRS have not pulled the plug they simply lost the contact it has been with Colas Rail before and switched between DRS and Colas a couple of times and there are still some places like Kyle and Mallaig where HSTs wont be allowed the MMT has been to Fort William and Oban so is allowed on those lines
  7. Tom The dispensation to use the MK2 coaches ends tomorrow they are not permitted to be used in passenger service now Scotrail did have a tender out and the original plan was for the 68s and complient coaches to return on these services in December but with sharp fall in demand post Covid 19 this plan has been axed
