  1. The steps were for access to the boiler filler. They were removed/plated over when the filling point was moved down from the roof. Other classes received the same treatment too.
  2. D6975

    Bachmann 4BEP

    But they ran from Victoria, not Charing Cross.
  3. 37012 coming off BR to go light to Avonmouth for the Dringhouses.
  4. I saw 37043 in large logo at Severn Tunnel Jn shortly after the WHL went EH. Lots of other steam heat ones turned up at Bristol off the Dringhouses freight. 012, 027, 051, spring to mind.
  5. My Samsung 10 inch tablet has 2 panels.
  6. re the APT, if you can stand the awful lagginess of the Hornby site, a single power cars is listed there and the price implies that it is powered. The price diference 5/7 suggests 2 power cars with the latter, but as others have pointed out it doesn't quite work out for building a complete set. No doubt things will become clearer in the near future. I've been predicting a standard 2-6-0 78xxx for som etime now, but I got the box colour completely wrong.
  7. The front cab windows are horribly wrong, the characteristic sad eyed look and the rearwards rake are missing .
  8. No, that's the later version of Scotrail regional livery.
  9. There were also a number of ScotRail-ish mk2s about in the early 90s. These were NSE liveried Mk2s with the red stripe painted over with light blue. So they looked like ScotRail livery but with dark blue uppers.
  10. There has been quite a bit of shuffling of class 221s. 221136, 140 and 141 are all missing one of their original coaches. 221142 and 143 both have an extra coach taken from other sets, being 4-car sets originally. 221144 is a 4-car unit but not correctly formed.
  11. There were some at Holyhead for a while too, but I think these have now moved.
  12. All 13 mk5 TPE sets are now in the country, though most of them appear to be at various storage locations.
  13. It's not the shape of the windows, it's the glazing, the cabside windows appear as if they are melting (look at the bottom, it sticks out) and they all have a pronounced prism effect.
