  1. Anthony Various photographs, both officials and my own of oil related loading facilities and unloading are at: http://paulbartlettsotherrailwayphotos.fotopic.net/c1231982.html Paul York
  2. ABS did all of the casting for Mopok - John Senior was half of Mopok. Paul York PS thanks to whoever for posting on my photo of the end - but if it is the 42ft. bogie van that is being then this is the prototype - the correct diagram! There are several detail photographs in the same collection.
  3. Prototype is preserved at NRM. see http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p58883706.html Paul York
  4. I don't know much about the 52ft. vans, but three pictures of what I think is the prototype here http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p54556234.html Paul York
  5. This one is probably similar to the kit http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p30420929.html Regards Paul York
  6. I think you will be surprised by the fruit van. I hope you can all appreciate just how much they are going to be able to do with this new underframe which has never been in a RTR range before. Paul York
  7. Red was the livery for breakdown trains, not for PW trains, which would have been black for the period you are asking about (if they were repainted for the tool van use) Paul York
  8. There are some of the suburban mark 1s at Royston in 1976 in this collection "Mark 1 coaches" (C#693000) – 46 photographs http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c693000.html Paul York Now in http://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brmark1
  9. There are some departmental CCT here "SR & BR(S) CCT convert to Departmental engineers" (C#1399712) – 11 photographs http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c1399712.html Although the end doors made them unpopular for such conversion, the PMVs were more usually used. Paul
  10. On 29 October 1987 I photographed it departing with a rake of Dogfish from Exeter Riverside yard. Paul
  11. Dave - although you can alter to VB you do not need to do this. The BDA came from earlier unfitted BDO wagons - the bodies are all very similar, but the BDO would be a simpler conversion. http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c1489637.html which includes examples during conversion. The open web buffer http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p49591231.html is typical for many of these. Paul York
  12. Chris It was on show at the freight exhibition on 1 March 1979 http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p3179744.html Paul York
  13. The chimney of the sand house can be seen at the back of St. Albans Midland Rly shed - see http://paulbartlettsotherrailwayphotos.fotopic.net/p37337381.html Paul York
  14. And colour examples here Ex GWR & BR Milk tank wagons – 44 photographs http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c25350.html and here "Milk tank wagons BR, LNER, SR, LMS, MMB" (C#20075) – 30 photographs http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c20075.html But, of course, they are not wagons but NPCS. Paul York
  15. I have a series of photos of 96708 - see http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p63185762.html and the others then follow on. May be of interest. Paul York
  16. I have now added to the collection "Milk tank wagons BR, LNER, SR, LMS, MMB" (C#20075) http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c20075.html The GWR and BR (W) will follow next weekend. Please note that those at Swindon in 1975 were not necessarily condemned, simply present for maintenance. Interesting the way that by then the LMS versions had been transferred to WR and given the new pre-fix (as was usual with NPCS). In a recent exchange with John Lewis he mentioned that the Churchward brake rigged versions of the GWR ones appear to have gone out of use during the 1970s, although some of my photographs suggest they remained in use in 1975. Regards Paul York
  17. Dear Joe This collection may have some inspiration. http://paulbartlettsotherrailwayphotos.fotopic.net/c1231982.html Regards Paul York
  18. The Devlan Mud gives a nice finish, this example is simply Halfords red oxide undercoat with Devlan washed on. http://ebormodelrail.fotopic.net/p54791822.html Paul York
  19. Did any of the SPA have the Cardiff rod mill livery? There are some in this collection but after conversion to SEA. http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c1110978.html Paul York
  20. They worked well into the late 1960s - plenty here with the yellow loading labels which were not introduced until the mid 1960s Yorkshire Tar Distillers tanks" (C#1080767) - 75 photographs http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/c1080767.html And here are two, there was an EE class 3 hauling the train. Paul York
  21. Dear Rob This is at Wallingford http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p14592873.html, with a VVV - ply doors and plank side in the background. Paul York
  22. The prototype photograph is http://gallery6801.fotopic.net/p56725231.html Paul York
  23. Accurate livery, but is there a running number? Should be three or 4 figures. Paul
  24. Stu. please any more clues as to the livery you are discussing - link to a photo of the model would help. There were hundreds of ICI 14Ton tank wagons. Paul York
  25. A demonstration of how single Presflo could be unloaded using suitably equipped road vehicles. Although the photo is undated, the wagon appears very new, so 1959-60 seems a likely date. There is a similar photograph, but earlier, on the front cover of Don Rowlands BR wagon book. By 1959 the wagons were being built with roller bearings, but the earliest wagons were equipped with oil boxes, and converted under the BR scheme to convert all wagons with a payload of 20Ton or greater to have roller bearings - which seems to have happened for Presflo but not for many other wagons such as Tubes and Plates.
