  1. olive green makes it after mid 1963 but there appears to be a date on the solebar. Ask TMC? Paul
  2. I live in York and I believe I have seen complaints but cannot find the subject in the archive of the York Press. Once again the Siemens depot was newly built in an area converted from railway use to new housing. The 185s with their propulsion spread along the train are relatively quiet. The problem seems to have been solved, I don't know if any 68s lay over at that depot these days. In York the 68s sit at the Scarborough end of platform 4 which is relatively high up - they go straight over the river bridge. Now that bridge has a much improved walkway and cycle route these things
  3. The location of any conserved wagon is easily found on http://www.ws.rhrp.org.uk/ These are similar and give the diagram numbers, which should be able to give you the info you want, via the Barrowmore site. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/briggsdundee/e24eef510 https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/briggsdundee/e31e22bb0 Paul
  4. I don't think you'll find many ratchets before 1977 and plenty of shackles well into the mid 1980s. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brsalmon8ft/e2d675824 https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brsalmon8ft https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brsalmon5ft As most of these were going to be based on my photos I'd welcome some decent photos of the models being posted on here. Paul
  5. These wagons had power brake, so if painted in BR wagon colours they would have been freight stock red = bauxite. if NPCCS then the crimson as used for the mainline crimson/cream livery. Don't use Precision paints BR Crimson which is much too dark. Paul
  6. Various diag 1666 and 1667 near the beginning of https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/lmsopen I've sold them now, but didn't 3H do a kit of 1666? Paul
  7. Plenty of clean ones here https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/rhttfeaf Paul
  8. PG006B in https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/yeomanpga Plenty of ARC photos Of course they weren't necessarily painted the same through their long lives. Paul
  9. The avatar I use is me measuring the Coil B in STJ. Half a lifetime ago! It was a great yard to visit, although the WR were not good with permits - I think I applied three times and we got in when I asked to measure the ODAs which were stored there between jobs - and went off TOPS because of security precautions. One of the interesting shunts was going across the GWML from the Up to Down yard or reverse. We could, of course, have done a Coil B anytime in Newport Docks. Paul
  10. When we visited Yorkshire TD all 4 surviving rectangular tanks had noticeable differences one to another. https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/yorkshiretardistillers Paul https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/pounbraked
  11. They aren't as colourless as most internal user vehicles https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/scunthorpebsccorus/e91c9df2e https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/scunthorpebsccorus/e91c9da21 Many more people will be aware of these than the average internal users as they are on display during the regular tours of the steelworks, and the heat coming off of them when passed can be very welcome - Scunthorpe can be remarkably cold in June! Paul
  12. It would be unusual to see a Brodsworth wagon in poor condition, in 1987 it was like a well kept wagon museum; a lot of heritage railways could have learnt from them. https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brodsworthcolliery Paul
  13. These ? https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/bccfrenchpca/e24320bf7 Not sure where Alcan and Deltics comes in. Paul
  14. They worked into Newport docks hauled by the 08 from Alexander Junction or Ebbw Junction - went there several times but didn't know its proper name!
  15. Note that despite them being a rather regional wagon I did record one for repair at Horwich works. https://PaulBartlett.zenfolio.com/brcoila/e1d129531 The Coil B has been mentioned. Our drawings have been offered and one that has wider geographical use, although they ended up working with the Coil A. I'll admit a wagon type that I was hopeful would be produced when we started publishing drawings - rather less well known than many but with some play value. Paul
