  1. The yellow box bodied ones are ex-BT cable gang wagons, the flap above the cab was to carry long ladders. https://www.britishtelephones.com/vehicles/specialist/236.htm Telephone poles were carried (and put up) by purpose built pole erection units https://www.britishtelephones.com/vehicles/peu/010.htm Nick
  2. Looking at RR Picture Archives 722 seems to have had a partial repaint when it was on FEC, possibly using close-enough shades of yellow and gray. As the NEC patches don’t quite match the background I’d be inclined to explore 298’s suggestion of Fox warning panel yellow patch decals. http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/locoPicture.aspx?id=164562
  3. Industrivej has exhibition invitations! It will be at the Nottingham MRS Autumn Show at Highbank Community Centre, Farnborough Road, Clifton, Nottingham NG11 9DG on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th September 2021. The next outing is the Elizabethan Model Railway Society Show at the Summit Centre, Pavillion Road, off Lowmoor Road, Kirkby in Ashfield Nottinghamshire NG17 7LL on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October 2021.
  4. Not quite as adventurous but this repainted Model Power Alco has a certain charm
  5. Looks good, have you checked out Bernard Kempinski’s Port of Los Angeles layout? The posts are on his US Military RR blog tagged with POLA https://usmrr.blogspot.com/?m=1
  6. The Wiking models come up rather nicely with a coat of paint, these being Danish, they’re Bedford CFs
  7. Norfolk and Western’s later SD40-2s had a low short hood but the long hood was designated as the front. http://rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=1584409 Here’s one I made earlier

  11. Thanks for the translation and the kind words, I’m glad you like the layout. I just meant the loco as I bought the body so long ago and there have been so many detours along the way. The layout probably is fairly complete but I keep adding bits. I keep building and acquiring wagons and locos too.
  12. The magnum opus (or should it be stor arbejt?) is complete!
  13. Would the 4 wheel Minibulks suit, they seem to have lasted to the early 90s https://paulbartlett.zenfolio.com/brtgraincovhop?fpciidx=27
  14. Locos and Stuff offer 10.5 and 12mm disc wheels and seem to be quite flexible (I’ve got a project that needs 10.5mm wheels when I get around to it) https://www.locosnstuff.com
