  1. Never mind that, did you get the number of the Pacer?
  2. And a third, Marmite is the work of Satan
  3. If you look at what Nemesis are doing to mk3s for Smithy they look amazing and look sufficiently oldy worldy to pass muster with most of the public. Most of the passengers on preserved railways want a nice train journey on something that looks old, most don't really care as long as its clean and comfortable and has somewhere they can fill one end and empty the other. I reckon mk1s and well looked after pre nationalisation stock are still the future realistically.
  4. Go with rule 1 - its your layout, run what you want to.
  5. This can't be good, me posting relevant and almost intelligent questions

      Please clarify the nature of the alleged relevant and almost intelligent questions.

      Isn't this one of the signs of the apocalypse? 

  6. So I've been trawling the internet looking for reference photos of Gresley non-corridor stock and came accross this interesting example here. I appears to be a Gresley CL that has had all the beading removed, does anyone have any more information on this before I do something drastic like model it?
  7. To be honest I reckon mk1s will be gone from the mainline in 10 years because the ORR are wanting plug doors/CDL and retention tanks and are becoming less keen on issuing derogations, I reckon mk2s & mk3s will be the standard on railtours before long. I think we will be seeing mk1s on preserved railways for many years to come though.
  8. That may be one to keep an eye on with what Han Mattcock has just said in Parliament, going to be 18th of July or so until some of that area is allowed to do more.
  9. Referring back to the OP on replacement crash pillars, new ends etc are a standard part of mk1 rebuilds and have been for many years most of them are so good you would never know it has beenbeen done.
  10. Something a little bit different, the mural on the wall of Gristhorpe signalbox.
  11. Nice seat base in the photo though
  12. In theory you should see the schools dotting about tomorrow on and off from about 945 stretching its legs.
  13. After fish and chips in Brid most of the roaring comes from my back end.
