  1. A locally built and liveried Guy Arab would certainly help place the model in the Wolverhampton area. There is a Roe bodied Corgi example currently on eBay although the price is ambitious compared to sold listings in the last couple of months (and there were a few). A legitimate alternative might be a Midland Red D9. BMMO ran services in the Wolverhampton area and had a depot at Bilston Street then Dudley Road: http://midlandred.net/depots/index.php?depot=wn Corgi D9s are readily available and can be bought for sensible money.
  2. Bagnall's in Stafford. No trip into town was complete without a visit to that Aladdin's cave. Opposite the Borough Hall too. When the Stafford Railway Circle annual exhibition took place there in the 1970's, life didn't really get much better.
  3. St. Pancras for me too. Without doubt my favourite piece of London architecture. I used it frequently in the late 1980s when it was pretty grim and its future uncertain. I used to think to myself "Why can't they do something with this?" I'm so glad they did.
  4. I particularly liked the background music and words of encouragement!
  5. This damage appears to occur when they are stored or transported. When supplied new, the locos were seated in the polystyrene inner by two removable metal L-shaped brackets screwed to the underside. Over time these become lost and even if packed out securely, the loco has a tendency to shift forward in the packaging, particularly if subjected to a sudden jolt.
  6. Another vote for the LMS 4F.
  7. Thanks @innocentman, that's really useful and the tender looks great. Would an etch be available for purchase please? Many thanks.
  8. It has the look of a Hornby X9108 motor as fitted to the Britannia, Clan, 8F, King and others; albeit the worm is fitted at the end with the electrical connectors. No longer available as spare. I think many were used to upgrade the motor in the Hornby P2.
  9. I do like the high-sided tender. Not something you see modelled very often.
  10. For looks, it has to be the Fowler "Austin" 7F, although the less said about its reliability the better. If it's reliability with a certain amount of Edwardian elegance, then it has to be the LNWR G2 and variants.
  11. Can you tell us a little more about the small Chinese motors please? How do they need to be adapted to take the gearboxes? How well do they perform? And, where do you get them from? Thanks.
  12. If I win anything, great - it's a bonus. If not, I'm happy to make a donation to the cause with something that has RMWeb's name on it.
  13. With the thread now so long, a reminder of how the raffle/donation process works is probably worthwhile.
