  1. Glasgow Queen St. When there were 47/7s on the push pulls and a couple of 37s - oh and the Casey Jones burger bar! Paul
  2. It's a bit surprising that they are going to the expense of doing the train crash stunt for real instead of CGI. Paul
  3. More views https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-9496231/amp/Tom-Cruise-58-clings-train-filming-stunt-scene.html One of two class 66s that was sent up to nymr on a low loader pushing a modified steamer. Paul
  4. Not the best looking locos, but 70001 departs Hull Dairycoates with the Tarmac stone empties to Tunstead on 20th April 2021. Paul
  5. A bit of income for the railway. https://www.thescarboroughnews.co.uk/news/people/video-tom-cruise-films-at-levisham-on-the-north-york-moors-for-his-latest-movie-mission-impossible-7-3207564 Paul
  6. From Dapol Facebook page Paul
  7. The cover picture of this book came to mind when I read your question. https://www.waterstones.com/book/private-owner-wagons-in-colour-for-the-modeller-and-historian/david-ratcliffe/9780711033658 Paul
  8. One that I never got to model was the parcel side of a large terminus station. Along the back scene a single track with a platform. On the platform either stone work or large advert hoardings just giving a hint of the train behind on the single track. Moving forward on the viewing side of the platform a track used for assembling a short parcel train and / or running DMU shuttles. In front of that 3 or 4 tracks to park parcel stock or stable the odd loco. The trick is giving the impression of a larger station, so lots of signs indicating platforms 6- 9 this way. The t
  9. Andy they also do a PCA cement wagon (Vee tank) they are not listed on their website so you will have to ring. Mine were bought at shows. Paul
  10. My two resin skytrex ones cost around £50 plus wheels and were fairly easy to build. Paul
  11. A TTA tank wagon in the number of liveries they come in must surely be viable. Carefully done to allow for variants. Paul
  12. Several of these are available as kits. From time to time some manufacturers ask for suggestions but they don't go any further. I was hoping accurascale would add to their hopper range, but nothing as yet. It's all very well churning out loco after loco but if they have little to pull... I guess air brake stock is a niche market in what is still seen as a niche scale. Paul
  13. Nice to see progress on these. Was there a HSA variant too for scrap metal that had the hopper doors welded shut? Paul
  14. Link is back up! https://www.Dapol.co.uk/O-Gauge-Vanwide-and-VEA-Update Paul
  15. In the Dapol interview on the virtual show on Saturday it was said they are on the water. Paul
  16. Yes it seems the page has been removed. Hopefully it will get re instated Paul
  17. Link to update https://www.Dapol.co.uk/O-Gauge-Vanwide-and-VEA-Update Paul
  18. Looks really nice Julian. So nice in fact I have ordered one despite running BR blue! Paul
  19. A small tank engine would be a good bet, but a large chunk of work was already done on the Little Loco companies two up and coming plans before they folded - the Ruston shunter and the class 22. Could Dapol have bought into these? Paul
  20. Looks good but as already said leave room for a portacabin and a road vehicle or two. Looking forward to your progress. Paul
  21. According to a Heljan Facebook Post these have just arrived in Denmark and are being shipped to the UK. Paul
  22. Regarding explosives the SS Richard Montgomery a WW 2 liberty ship sunk in the Thames estuary is another one you would not want to go bang. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20151027-the-ticking-time-bomb-of-the-thames Paul
  23. Get some parkside grampus wagon kits, Andy. They suit your era. Easy to build. (If you can build an airfix kit you can build these) Paul
