  1. Future run of the TOPS era wagons would be splendid .............................. I reckon you'd make a killing on these even now - there must be lots of people that missed out
  2. Any hope of a D & E pack re-run for those mere mortals that decided to save up first ??
  3. Accurascale seem to be taking their sweet time in announcing this ......................................................
  4. Personally I quite like them .......... Livery suits too ............... time to point the camera at the railway again me thinks (been prostituting myself with Red 4-rubber-tyred things mostly during these lockdowns etc ........ easier to snap on the way to work than standing exposed on a platform) Will there be a phased or en-mass(ish) introduction into service ???
  5. I'm sure someone else has pointed this (been away from RMweb a long time) - So the D-trains being 1979 (?) vintage puts them in service on the IOW 42ish years after first introduction on the District - nice to see tradition being maintained
  6. Did pretty much the same back in 2005 with a 4-VEP but we used a Class 73 and a length of rope through the cab windows as the buckeye was buggered ......................
  7. Actually sorry to see them go ................................. Here's 001 on the blocks at Waterloo P17 late on 12-01-21
  8. No - but I know where you are referring to ........ they were used quite a lot for deep catchpit covers on the line. Mine was lying loose in the Down cess about 10 chains Reading side ..................... redundant "fence posts"
  9. I have these from their SNCB range ............................ nicely built & detailed & all run well without problems The Class 51 & Class 26 aren't done RTR by any other manufacturer - another tick for Mehano.
  10. Where is this please - can't place it - 3rd rail / OLE poles - am guessing NLL - Acton-ish somewhere ??
  11. EH & HG 33/0's could be found in each others' territory on the SR pretty regularly.
  12. Lovely view of a DH25 compressor on the bufferbeam - normally tucked out of sight on the underframe of SR EMU's
  13. Nice ..……… can almost hear the chatter !!
  14. Quite - I remember standing on the platform at Bedwyn back in 2014?? en-route to a possession planning meeting at Reading just after it was announced that the wires wouldn't reach further than Newbury and overheard a suited chap say to his travelling partner "Have you heard we won't be getting electrified" ……………………… "Yes, I've SPOKEN to Steven about rectifying that" came the emphatic reply ……… There's a lot of that sort of thing in West Berkshire & East Wiltshire ………………………………. they wear hats to work still
  15. Although both of these are worthy of inclusion in the same breath ……………….. https://www.amazon.co.uk/British-Railway-Wagons-Rowland-1985-04-25/dp/B01K965860/ref=pd_lpo_14_img_0/259-9861288-0483055?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01K965860&pd_rd_r=a3fddbbb-79d1-4cf2-910c-b472611cc240&pd_rd_w=0tLIp&pd_rd_wg=2eAlc&pf_rd_p=7b8e3b03-1439-4489-abd4-4a138cf4eca6&pf_rd_r=34SSQ53DPVZXJPYZHRZV&psc=1&refRID=34SSQ53DPVZXJPYZHRZV https://www.amazon.co.uk/British-Railways-Unfitted-Vacuum-Braked/dp/0711036365
