  1. Accurascale may have been influenced by some of my photos. This is the list with reference to my photos but this does not mean that the artwork, or detail of the wagons, will appear as in these photos.

  3. Burry Marcrofts was very active when I found it in April 1987 https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/marcroftburry Paul
  4. All very nice. Occasionally threatened with replacement with escalators but the companies running the station change so frequently it is never done - Non Yorkies tend not to realise there are lifts and underpassages available so instead struggle up these stairs, not least when there is a platform alteration. I hadn't realised before, that when entering the modern Smiths the back of the store is in the signal box locking room. I'll have to look more carefully next time I'm down there. Paul
  5. B312257 will need a lot of work to make it appear as it did in 1982 https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brmdv/ea5e5ad73 As will B201198 to appear as it did in 1980 https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/mdo/e2d18ccd3 Life wasn't very kind to these wagons. Paul
  6. This March 1968 photo has a similarly short rake of two tanks with a Birmingham type 3 at Clapham J. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brmilktanks/e3aa0837f Paul
  7. This recent book shows the condemnation dates of individual coaches, and what further use some had. Paul
  8. .. and not conveyed on anything fancy, just a standard Boplate. Paul
  9. The wagons were very basic; worse than Dapol Gen 1 (which were at least cheap!). Also, they had wheels that would not run on finescale track - such as Peco so another £9 to replace them - which was easy because the axleguards were screwed on; I said they were basic. I suspect a US standard for the wheels. Paul
  10. This was in a red, possibly Gulf red https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/lmsbrakevan/e23048bd8 I don't know of any as Mess vans, only as gauge wagons. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/lmsbrakevan/e37cb8b03 Paul
  11. One was being washed, with a broom and bucket, when I visited there! https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/silcockcarticpja/e31d176c6 Paul
  12. This report Clean up continues after fiery explosion outside Cameron (msn.com) suggests that the tractor trailer crashed into the train, not the train into the truck. Quite amazing all the reports re-iterate that there were no injuries. Yes, my knowledge of names of road vehicles is out of date. In our hitch-hiking days they were simply artics, rigs and road trains (not that Road trains operated in Europe 50 years ago). Paul
  13. Wow the hard ones. Its taken 2 days to explain what an 18 wheeler might be! Paul
  14. Doubtless had these before Paul Bartlett's Photographs | BR Container flat for bullion FXA (zenfolio.com) https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/bullionflat and the bullion coaches https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brnpccs/e3ee05fa4 and a couple of others. Paul
