      Found a piccy of a blue grey one on Paul Bartlett's site but it was in 1968. Probably still working as a passenger brake rather than a parcels van.

      This has come up in various threads, some did get blue/grey early on but no other pre-BR BGs. Mainline used to do a 4mm model

  22. Modernist: Squires Tools or Eileens emporium for small drills!

    1. halfwit


      Both give excellent service.

    2. Modernist


      Thanks, I was aware of Eileens but not Squires? Could I expect a swift dispatch from both?

    3. halfwit


      Certainly from Eileens, Squires I tend to order from by post ans are usually very quick.

  23. Can't decide whether to keep the Saltney blog going, or change to a layout thread. Or forget both and just get on with the layout..

  24. Hi Phill,

    The remnants of Talacre are re-appearing as the Saltney Railway now, so we'll do our best to keep the spirit going. Struggling for space a bit though....!
