  1. I am seeking Class 47 Porterbrook livery. [email protected]
  2. Is there an up-to-date listing like this one as cannot find on their website? they had a list at Warley.
  3. Dapol Digest notes from the MD that the Pacer will have a new run in 2020. Ideas are sought for liveries. GW chocolate and cream is favourite. These also raan in the livery in Manchester area. Two tone original livery is another option. Manchester orange or Merseyside yellow. The Pacer Family book also shows Regional Railways livery rebranded as ARRIVA. Valley Lines livery is quite colourful.
  4. Correction -Simply Southern wagon is Battle Gunpowder GPV> Sorry for error.
  5. Guagemaster have listed several 7 plank commissions on order from Dapol in N Simply Southern has just issued Gasson tent supplier- GPV -very colourful and features in Private Owners of SE-in N Medway Queen project has just issued GPV as tool van for their project. Looks good but fictitious livery. N again
  6. I have been several times. Usually have a tour of factory to see machines. Can chat to Joel ,the MD and other key staff. Make a model. Lots of bargains in shop and in separate sale of NQP but a bit of a scrum. Usually a Talk on latest developments. 2 to 3 mile from stations Llangollen and Oswestry railways nearby and Glyn Valley beginnings
  7. More Peco wagons from thewagonyard -Van in complex livery of Gassson and coal wagon for Victoria Coal. Based on real wagons in Turton books.
  8. Doing some useful Peco N wagons of Dean Forest area and provides some info on Prototype which is interesting. Also answers emails and despatches quickly.
  9. Brilliant service from AGR -next day arrived and pleasing model. Visited shop in May -developing well and has second hand side.
  10. I see AGR have a N Peco -BR conflat with white insulated container - see AGR on mode shop section.
  11. Derails have released their latest 7 plank commissions based on Dean Forest area. Eastern United Colliery and ParkEnd. great news for private owner collectors. Six more are planned over the next 18 months.
  12. Pennine wagons have just released two N Peco wagons -Murgatroyds Salt and MSC Brake which must be first private owner brake issued. Wagon yard have just relased detais of their next two commissions

    Dapol 142

    Western Skipper livery as transferred to Manchester area would be a worthwhile livery. Also I see Dft are proposing Pacers could be used as church halls and community venues. No mention of donating them to preserved lines for off season use -amazing!
  14. Just found HMRS book by Dickinson (2010) -"Still Nodding" on 142s -has section on limited use in Scotland- Carlisle to Dumfries service occasionally and also en route to Glasgow for repairs.. Also noted a Scarborough to Holyhead service
  15. Two usefu sources of areas where 142 operated are in two books on Pacers -the Pacer by Mackin -largely captioned photos and The Pacer Family by Kerr which has more detail and many photos from around the country and various liveries. There is also a Modern Locomotives Illustrated on the subject. Examples of 142s in Cornwall, North East, Darlington-Saltburn, Carlisle-Lancaster, Blackpool, Leeds, York, Sheffield, Liverpool, Wales.
