  1. GWR was working with Brown Boveri in the 1930s. Swiss prototypes are probably more likely. Cheers David
  2. How's this for a DMU drag? Class 130, GUV, CCT, Siphon and PMV. And in the siding another PMV and LNER CCT.
  3. I think it's a 5205 2-8-0T at the back. Cheers David
  4. Shakedown trials of AC16 218 at Zig Zag. This means both preserved AC16s are now operational.
  5. Another one of the class 120 hauling a CCT at Aberystwyth.
  6. On a similar note, class 120 driving motors with a class 101 trailer hauling a CCT.
  7. The UK was designing and building more advanced steam locos for other countries well into the 1950s. Come to think of it, the UK was exporting more advanced locos in the 1920s than it was building for domestic use in the 1950s! Cheers David
  8. There are abandoned steam locos in various places along the Hejaz railway. Some look pretty much the same as the day they were wrecked by T.E. Lawrence over a century ago.
  9. I've never been able to find a good paint or mix to represent concrete, even new concrete which is mostly uniform white. Aged concrete is even harder.
  10. Another article: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2021/may/19/uk-rail-overhaul-privatised-great-british-railways-
  11. A whole thread on bus turntables. https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/75405-bus-turntables/
