  1. Thanks for the info, It does seem that the first of the class to receive the yellow waring panel were those based at Darnal? Best Wishes David
  2. Neil, thanks for you assistance - I’ve got a copy of the Haresnape book somewhere so I will take a look. But the answer does seem to be that some 30/31 did start to receive yellow warning panel early - May 1962. I will keep looking. Best Wishes David
  3. Thanks What I’m specifically after is an example of loco getting it’s yellow warning panel before June 1962. So have had a very enjoyable good look at Brush Veteran Flickr site. Has a picture of D5656 at York May 62! Was a 41A loco at the time so not EA, but does start to answer the question. Thanks David
  4. Hi, Just looking for an example of an East Anglian based Class 30/31 which received its small yellow ends early. Understand that they started application in 1962 but would like to identify a loco that had an early application especially if it’s before Stratford/ Cambridge etc closed to steam in the summer of 1962. thanks David
  5. Oh wow - I hadn’t come across that site before! thanks Thats really helpful. Best Wishes David
  6. Looking for a bit more info on which shed's the Class 05 Shunters were allocated to. Thanks David
  7. IS there a guild to fitting a DCC chip to the Class 05 Shunters. Looking at it I cant work out how you do it!. Thanks David
  8. Very basic question, but this is my first go. I am fitting the Hornby TTS to Hornby Class 08. I assume that the speaker fits at the grill end but the padding seams to rub on part of the motor. What do I do? Is it ok to remove that padding or is that important for the whole thing to work? Thanks David
  9. I was looking at what shows local to me were likely to be happening when I found the following note on the St Neots MRC website. Don't think there is a thread running already on this, sorry if I have missed it. https://stneotsmrc3.webs.com/ East Anglian Model Railway Exhibition Update: It is with regret that we have decided that we will no longer organise the big East Anglian Model Railway Exhibition. St Neots MRC will go back to running a one-day exhibition in a local school, community centre or similar venue. We are aiming for September/October starting in 2022. Further details will follow when a venue and date are confirmed.
  10. Just to add in that got round to looking at my copy over the weekend. And would agree with other comments here - great, well researched and presented publication. Hope there will be more editions. Best Wishes David
  11. Progress is always slower over the summer. Working on the factory offices. I’m going for a rendered wall that is failing. Have got this far. Needs more work but pleased with it so far. David
  12. Always good to see an update on your work Andy, Do you have any plans for future exhibitions? Would love to see this one in person? Best Wishes David
  13. some more steady progress on painting things - the archers at the back are now a nice engineering blue and the pub is starting to be toned down. Both need more work but 2 hours sat in the garden painting while listen to the ‘your dead to me podcast’ has got me this far.
  14. Thanks for the comment Lez
  15. Thanks for your comments. The roof is done using Humbrol maskol and a copy of couple roof's I've seen near me on my lockdown walks. I would like to add some moss to it, but trees and greenery will come after the building have all been painted. Best Wishes David
