  2. Does anyone know why Rails of Sheffield has their DCC ready example of 31-911 'Portland Bill' at full retail price yet other suppliers including my own have theirs at around £186 to £199?

  3. @coachmann... following on from my posting last year as to the Push-Pull Coal Tanks, I have now decided to go ahead with the project. As you said Alan Gibson's 4M757** Push/pull gear is required but I will also need to order the pipes seperately. Where can I go to order the pipes please?
  4. Updates since I last created this posting... I've found a photo in my collection of a GWR Iron Mink in BR era livery. I remember I picked it up at Warley a few years ago either from the HMRS stand or one of the other trade stands but since completely forgot about it.

  5. LNER Banana Van announced as part of the 2021 range! https://www.facebook.com/2176618712550434/posts/2814301105448855/
  6. First wagon I would say is a Stephenson Clarke Mineral Wagon either of timber or steel frame. The vans are of GWR origin, most likely 1920 build onwards, then possibly a LNER wagon as it looks as if it's back is bending slightly. LMS Goods Van, LNWR Dia.88 Goods van and a GWR Toad to finish.
  7. Wanted A Bachmann ROD front pony truck as the pony truck for my GWR ROD has been damaged. Please PM if you can help. Many thanks, Garethp8873.

  12. Has anyone ever seen any photos of GWR Iron Mink Vans in BR livery? Preferably in general service rather than stores or sand vans etc
  13. Blue does suit the Pannier very well. Infact I did think at first you had a 3650 when it was in it's Stephenson Clarke livery.
  14. Watched the launch video thinking I wouldn't need one but once I saw Talavera in LMS Black I was hooked! Just wondering now whether the Improved Precedent Class will give Bachmann the opportunity to look at the LNWR Cauliflower Class and several other LNWR locomotives that utilse the same tender?
