  1. She was not one of the Streamlined variant but did carry the BR Green Livery.
  2. Take a look at HF Florescent Fittings. Benefits of High Frequency Fittings. Flicker free and silent operation. ‘Instant’ starting. Detects failed lamps, no more flashing on and off. Cold starting in sub-zero temperature. No stroboscopic effects. 20-30% saving in running costs.
  3. That looks like one of Bletchley's AM10's to the right.
  4. There may still be hope. Today I took the tip of a screwdriver and prised the axles upwards. The front one with the gears was a bit difficult but it came off eventually, seemingly without damage. Thank you for the update; your findings are encouraging.
  5. From your photograph it looks (at least to my un-trained eye) like the wheel set would lift out. I wonder what is holding it in place? I was hoping that an EM Gauge Wheelset would be drop-in replacement.
  6. See : - https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/112517-cl-finescale/&do=findComment&comment=4334032
  7. Lovely layout; hopefully we will be able to see it out on the Exhibition circuit at some stage.
  8. D5388 later became 27105 04/74 and then 27049 08/83 Wdn 04/87
  9. http://www.brassmasters.co.uk/08_rods.htm maybe worth a look?
  10. Platform 8 & Field Sidings brings back some happy memories. I used to spend many an hour during school holidays Spotting from Platform 8 and keeping an eye on the "Field Sidings" watching 47500 & 47521 and D3795 & D3796 carry out their Station Pilot Duties. If I was lucky, I'd get a ride on the Station Pilot. The most memorable thing I saw in the "Field Sidings" was 46245 City of London when working the daily Crewe to Willesden Parcels dropping off a few carriages. I can still hear the screeching of flanges and creaking of the track as she carried out these duties. Happy Days.
