  1. Chas, Mick, I'm glad the information was of help in the posts above. One error crept in, the ECJS vehicle is being renovated on the NYMR. Chas, as Mick has already confirmed your process is correct in the Stage one - Stage three photos. I hope you enjoy the GNN Back Numbers, we have made available 2 disks of the earlier issues to members, I am hoping there was a Publication list in the new members pack sent ... alternatively check the website as the current issue is on there, Many thanks again for the comments, Steve www.gnrsociety.com
  2. I have attached a higher resolution picture of the side view drawing IMG_1801, I should have also mentioned that the brown shaded area is the end view of the bolster. and also added a couple more photos of the "Preservation" bogie. The bogie was one of a pair located under a crane runner located on the Colne Valley Railway, the runner was the underframe/chassis of a Gresley 51'0" Elliptical Roof vehicle, the bogies have since been removed and now being used by the LNERCA for the underframe of an ECJS vehicle being renovated on the ECJS. I hope the attached are of use to you. Steve
  3. The two etched parts you show are I believe the bolsters, one for each bogie. There should also be a white metal part with the similar 3 holes and a small casting depicting two springs mounted on a plate. In 4mm these are very small and are really cosmetic but mount onto the casting or the formed etch at the outer ends. This is shown on the diagram reproduced below... from the instructions already sent. On the diagram , the two sketches of note are the right hand sketch which shows the bolster locating in the shackle.... at the area shown as 5..... the bolster being depicted as the straigh
  4. Re the bridges... I think 3A is Wrestlers Bridge in Hatfield with 4A viewing the same bridge in the distance with London Road Bridge at the south end of Hatfield Station in the foreground. The line veering to the left beyond the bridge could be the Hatfield St Albans branch. Steve www.gnrsociety.com

  7. Going back to the ECJS bogie 3rd vehicle, I recently viewed and photographed (in sections) 2 drawings at the NRM 120E Composite bogie and 121E Corridor Third. I have attached 2 images of the bogies shown on the GA. Unlike later GNR drawings the drawing for each diagram showed a plan view, side with underframe including bogie, an end view and section, including underframe. 121E depicts a corridor 3rd with lavatories at each end of the corridor and I think this is diagram 27. I have attached pictures of the bogies, these are the same as drawing 120E. I have also included 3 underframe
  8. Mike, This is a great thread, really shows where I went wrong, the sealing of the panels! Having seen your efforts I will have another go with a 45' vehicle. Thanks for posting the components as well, I have other 6 Wheel vehicles in brass to complete and this is a great help. I hope I have added a picture of the Buffer beam of the vehicle at Quainton Road to show buffer type on this vehicle, its a 6 Compartment 3rd, Dia 243. Steve www.gnrsociety.com
  9. There is a note in this months Railway Magazine that 70013's tender was going to Old Oak for turning, didn't mention dates but maybe the tender seen. I was surprised they have retained the turntable
  10. Further checking the Files:- Order No 7046 was Dia 10C, Restaurant First, Built 1929, Original No's 651 and 652, Final 1943 no's 9015 & 9016 I should point out that for both 7046 and 7050 the builder is show as Metropolitan and I am assuming they were built before the amalgamation of Metropolitan and Cammell Laird in 1929 to become Met Cam. Steve
  11. I am not an expert here but from Bills comments above and reference to Chris Bishops monograph on LNER coaches:- Met Cam Order No 7050 was Dia 27A, Third Open, Built 1929, Original No's 6100 & 6101, later 61705, 61706. 61705 was detroyed by enemy action 1940?.... 61706 became 12185. Both worked on the Liverpool St to Cromer service. I havent come across the 7046 order as yet but will post when I do. Unfortunately Mr Bishop passed away last year but his files are now with the LNER Society. Hope of help, Steve
  12. ASDA in Stevenage has them but due to space is probably only having one at a time on the shelf...... checked WHS in the Town Centre at lunchtime and they have them on display and by the tills..... 6 boxes... looks like 6 in a box waiting for eager buyers.... the model and magazine are good value at 2.99. Steve
  13. To aid with modeling the underframe and general details on the coaches, Isinglass Models produce the drawing - 3rd Class 103' 4" Gresley ordinary twin 3rd class (each 51' 1½" and 8 compartments) DRG No 115-B 105 106 Below a link to their website/catalogue. http://www.isinglass-models.co.uk/Isinglass_Catalogue_April_2013.pdf Steve
  14. I am away at the moment so dont have access to my notes but 31's were used on the Whitehaven-Huddersfield TPO... Lincoln-Crewe TPo and also I think the Cardiff - Crewe working...there was often one stabled in Crewe late evening.... the Crewe-Chester REL postal also used 31's....1.7.91 31413 92305 B/G 80301 RMTPO 92262 R+Y... all early 90's period
