  1. No problem, just glad you put the pic up as a reminder of how things were. Cheers!
  2. The '116 is heading towards you* (the driver** is in the nearest cab & note the angle of the rear car leaving the siding). * Having terminated from B'ham on the platform you're standing on, it's then crossed over via the siding behind the 'box ** Or more likely (allegedly) the guard, the driver staying in the rear cab to avoid changing ends three times!
  3. They were, and (topically) 'Love Rats' would have given the game away if it weren't for the typo...
  4. New 1/59, wdn 5/70. Based at York all of its' working life.
  5. Fitted for Push-pull testing (with a modified Mk1 BSK) .
  6. Just release the brake standard by a few turns, that should do it...
  7. Additional: Withdrawn 10/81 (as vacuum only), reinstated 4/83, dual braked at Swindon & released 8/83 to HA, reallocated to IS ?/83. This is the Directory* https://www.amazon.co.uk/EG-Locomotive-Directory-Every-single/dp/090637510X - There are at least 4 update booklets produced, worth checking that they're included if you're buying a copy * link included for info only.
  8. 1983, according to the D+EG Locomotive Directory.
  9. Quite a few BFK's remain: 14007 NYMR (61264 Support Coach) 14010 Kingdom of Fife RPS, Leven 14013 L&NWR, Crewe 14015 S Devon Rly 14019 E Lancs Rly 14021 Hardingham Station, Norfolk 14023 Mid-Hants Rly 14024 Chasewater Rly 14025 WCRC, Carnforth (45690 Support Coach) 14026 Gt Central Rly Remaining XP64s: 4728 Wensleydale Rly 4729 Dean Forest Rly 25508 Wensleydale Rly Info' from Peter Hall's 'Preserved Coaching Stock of British Railways' pdf & update sheets at rcts.org.uk
  10. One of 43125/6, the first pair repainted IIRC. Note the yellow continuing across the grille.
  11. I'm not up on GER 4 wheel stock, but the 5ive compartment Third D401 below, seems to fit the bill: http://eveleighcreations.com/instructions-4-mm-ger-four-wheeled-coach-body-kits/
  12. 4 & 6, although the former's hardly worth the trip (personal opinion) any more. If memory serves, 5's still online & 2 is a previous version of Footplate in Kidderminster
  13. Ar, but if the era in question is the 60s/70s, there'd be no interest in visiting from afar - unless you had a sadistic enjoyment of watching the home team getting stuffed (CH's nickname being 'spoons' - wooden spoon) It wasn't until the late 70s that their fortunes turned & it was the opposition that got their a##es kicked! So, I can only think of Dudley Zoo in the area of being worthy of a visit? [EDIT] I've been ON an adex from Cradley Heath, nice trip with 47439 via the East coast to Caeredin. I went on one Mystex, from New St leaving via Camp Hill &
  14. It routed via Snow Hill / NW in the summer '62 WTT.
