  1. And the funny thing is that one class of van being used was clearly marked NOT to be used for cattle! The wagons were clearly on their last days... Cheers NB
  2. The CP locos were bought new in 1949. AFAIK the Gironde locos were 65t rather than 45t. I think CFTA still has one loco lurking at Gray works. Cheers Nicholas
  3. Hello, Would it please be possible for someone to furnish me with the basic dimensions for the Seacow/Sealion ballast hoppers? Cheers Nicholas
  4. I know I'm a bit late in this topic, but...I don't have a firm freelance project, however the idea floats in and out of my mind from time to time. After poring through the internet, I have decided that my putative pre-grouping line would use industrial design locos of the beefier kind, a la PD&SWJR and Cleator & Workington Junction Railway. Cheers NB
  5. Eddie, More than one Brazilian modeller is on its knees praying for Frateschi to crank out a Joe...in the meantime they obliged with a V-8 and a "Wanderleia" (semistreamlined C-C motor), both in proper HO scale. That slip access was one of the best locations to take roster shots around the whole of the station, short of obtaining admittance to the shed itself... Cheers NB
  6. Some Frateschi locos - mainly those representing broad gauge prototypes, like the streamlined GE motor, the FA-1 and the 2-8-0 - are to 1:87 scale. Those locos which are of meter-gauge prototypes are made to approximately 1:78 scale. Cheers NB
  7. The loco is not a "Joe" - rather it's a model of the GE 2-C+C-2 motors delivered to the Paulista Railway in the 1940's. Cheers NB
  8. Tough, short of trying to find brass models...however Brawa has models of the "American Style" 4-axle open balcony coaches, these were also used on local lines. Cheers NB
  9. I love the CP T-shirts...in fact I'm liking the whole post, to be read while listening to Madredeus... Cheers NB
  10. Internet is your friend - the whole world of Weinert parts at your hands: https://www.weinert-bauteile.de/ Cheers NB
  11. WTB GF/Bachmann 08. The loco might be in any condition but the chassis must be in good shape and the loco a good runner. Any version will suit, preferably with yellow side rods. Please PM me with price. Cheers NB

  13. Use Weinert screw couplers instead. They have the right length. Not cheap tho' - 7€ the pair. Cheers NB
  14. Hello, I have an Arnold N scale 2242 Hanomag 0-4-0T which I'm converting into a Japanese private railway loco of the 1950's (sounds odd to uninitiated ears but the Japanese bought hundreds of small steamers from German builders prior to the 1920's, many lasted into active service into the 1970's) and after having milled the lower (footplate) set of headlights I now need to repaint the loco. Trouble is, the paint Arnold used on the loco seems to be unremovable (kudos to German quality!) - I tried dunking it in paint remover, no luck; isopropyl alcohol, keine glück...it just won't budge. Any ideas? In another forum it was suggested I use brake fluid...shell and frame are white metal. Cheers NB
  15. Kevin, Deutz OMZ117f locos build for wider gauges (900 and 1000mm) were fatter than their 600/750mm gauge counterparts - to wit this loco on the Selfkantbahn in Germany: LGB wasn't all that far off... Cheers NB
