  1. Thank you @Compound2632, very useful information. I’ve got a Parkside 7 plank kit to use. I’d thought dark grey as the base colour. Particularly like the way companies used bigger numbers! I’ll do that for sure. Thank you again.

  3. Thanks for the responses so far. I have attached another pic of the first page of the chapter the above entry was in, all data copyright of the IRS of course. As mentioned above, Norton is right on the Staffs/Shropshire border on the Market Drayton - Stoke line. Through the good people of the North Staffs Railway study group, now have plenty of track plans etc, none of which suggest any rail served industry such as a coal merchant. There was a weighbridge behind the station with a couple of sidings at one point. I think I will just end up getting some custom decals printed as I’m very aware that it might potentially not have existed in the guise mentioned, that EG Keay actually owned wagons, and that any chance of a photo is a real needle in a haystack odds. Therefore, perhaps the question should be ‘what information would appear on such a wagon?’ Thanks all for your input.
  4. Hi all, I came across the following entry in my IRS Industrial Locos of North Staffordshire book. As I’m planning a layout of Norton-in-Hales I’d love a replica of this PO wagon on it yet have been unable to unearth any picture or info regarding it. Even EG Keay doesn’t turn up any hits on web searches either. So, I’m wondering if anyone, by any chance has an image of what they looked like that they would be able to share please. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks for reading, Chris
  5. Not a problem Rob. Thanks for your response. Most useful and good for thought.
  6. I’d missed this layout until this morning. Excellent start, looking forward to more.
  7. Jack... how on earth have you managed to find carpet tiles that look like railcar seat covers?!? :-) Loft looks amazing. Well done.
  8. Goods store is excellently weathered, not that I'm surprised as you're quite the master craftsman! Always enjoy reading your threads! Excellent work.
  9. After the rebuild surely the sign should say ‘not quite as seen in Railway Modeller’ ;-p In all seriousness, it looks great Luke. Well done.
  10. Always enjoy a flick through this thread. Excellent, inspiring modelling at its best. What capacity does your sector plate have? Is it just enough for a loco or is it a loco plus x amount of wagons? Thanks
  11. It's Gn15 scale, but an 00 version of something like Simplicity Sidings? http://gn15.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4419&sid=a996e14240025a6954ee687d62af1f85&start=500
  12. Enjoyable thread. As someone who moved to the area several years ago I enjoy a jaunt on the TSR and have got quite a few books on the line. Any plans to purchase the blue Hornby peckett and turn it into Rocket?
  13. Really looking excellent, James. Quality work, as ever. Particularly like the shot of the inside of the shed, and love how you've achieved the road texture.
  14. Great space, Jack. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it!
  15. And what a cracking little model the rebuild is. Great stuff and nice to see it again.
