  1. Hi Cav & Alex, Congrats on your latest wagon. I am sure it will be a good seller, your others have gone down well too the pics of your steel wagon look spot on you must be very pleased with how they have come out. All the best Peter.
  2. I think the model looks pretty good I just hope the bodyside steps are plated over on the later locos that had that mod. Cheers Peter.
  3. It's been a while since I caught up on this thread. Talk of ploughs a few pages back was interesting. I would appear the Western where happy to use the class 33s on all sorts of turns and not just the ones they where diagrammed then complain about the centre ploughs. When I worked as a shunter at EH Depot we did a turn in the ground frame. One night shift I had set the road for a light engine when the sky lit up. It was a plough fitted class 37 and one of the ploughs had hit the juice rail. I reported this to the Foreman as was the instruction. The fitters would either remove raise them remember of course if they had been on a loco for some time this might be hard to do. Cheers Peter.
  4. I have never had a lot of luck with waterslide transfers if I am honest. I used Presfix transfers on my Lima GUVs. The lima model comes up well I think. Cheers Peter.
  5. Hi Richie, Welcome to rmweb. I think the High Level kit is pretty good the etch folded up well and the instructions are very clear. the Kadee's on the 142 are number 5s I just cut a hold to suit and set them at the right hight. The 150 has I think number 18s which just plug into the NEM pocket. Thanks, the layout has taken an age to get this far but I am still enjoying the build. Still plenty to do. Cheers Peter.
  6. No worries re hijacking the thread it's all interesting stuff. I spent a fair bit of time at Salisbury back in the day. Cheers Peter.
  7. Thanks Griff, The only place I remember seeing a plough was the London end near where I took my pic. Though it wasn't something I was looking out for, more interested in class 33s. Cheers Peter.
  8. Thanks Mate, your flask looks great. you don't see many wagons with the hood open, yours looks spot on. Cheers Peter.

    Funny you mention that. I had cut between the rails, but the sort which is now fixed was because I hadn't cut between the screws and the rail. I hadn't thought the screws going through the bottom of the PCB would be a problem. Anyway all sorted now Also had a chance to take the body off the class 25. Seems it was a loose wire going into the speaker. It's working now but I might have to replace the speaker if it does it again. Cheers Peter.
  10. Thats great thanks Fran. looking forwards to this model always wanted to do one Since seeing the loco at Perth back in the80s. Cheers Peter.
  11. I am wondering if I have to pre order this or will it be available in normal retailers. Cheers Peter.
  12. Hi Stephen, Yes it's plasticard. I scribed on the planking and painted it. Cheers Peter.
  13. Hi Paul, the pic was taken mid 80s. I will have a look through my other Salisbury pics as I might have one showing the other plough. Cheers Peter.
  14. Looking forwards to the 37s did I see somewhere that 37043 is on the list. Cheers Peter.
  15. Thanks Paul, I remember seeing the one at the London end I don't recall the other one. it would have good to see them on the move with a Crompton in between. Cheers Peter.
