  1. Your mixer is painted in Pioneer Concrete colours, an Aussie firm taken over by Hansons. Hansons still had some Hino mixers until 2015/16. there was certainly one running out of Cannock plant. Paul.
  2. Thanks John, Will order a set. Regards to all. Paul.
  3. Thanks for that I remember the windows now you've said it. Thanks Paul.
  4. Sadly a house move has deprived me of the large area I had before. The layout now resides in the cellar in storage, about 90% of the track is laid, now I'm working on a WCML station approach. Will post some progress if there is any interest. Paul.
  5. Where these the units that ran on the Crewe to Cardiff services for a while before they were replaced by Class 25's. I seem to remember them running through Shrewsbury in the late 70's? During early 80's on a commute from Wolves to Shrwesbury a 120 was rostered and the speedo hand always went to the stop on the long downhill run from Wellington. The bench seats [sofa's] behind the Drier were very comfortable and gave a fantastic view ahead. Paul
  6. Thanks Pete, I missed out a very important C. Checked your site before I asked. Its for a couple of Bachmann models I've repainted. Are these suitable for them? Paul.

  8. Hello, could anyone point me in the direction of 4mm bogie bolster transfers please. Thanks in advance.
  9. Add a bit of weathering and run it as an everyday loco. My boy loves this and it will be his one day.
  10. Great inspiration and ideas, have done this to a matchbox TV van.
  11. Does this count? built for my son.
  12. Hi I've tried a zen 360 with stay alive, lenz gold and hattons 8 pin direct all of which were at hand and also to large. Will order a zen nano and see what happens. here's a couple of pics of my renumbered 009 as runnig July 1976 and as class 81 was mentioned earlier a couple of one I've been working on. Need to speak to Lee to fit handrails and give it a squirt of blue and yellow. Hope the Heljan 86 is going to be a vast improvement on thier first effort. Thanks Paul.
  13. Hi Anyone chipped on yet? If so which have you used. Have tried 3 for my 87 009 but none are small enough. Thanks Paul.
