  1. The 40 has gone up by a tenner as well, which if just for plastic, put against a 3 car DMU is rather steep seeing as you are using less material. Scott
  2. When I lived in Wood Green back in the 80s there were two off licences in close proximity to a pub. One literally next door, the other on the opposite site of the street. Numerous foody takeaways as well. Scott
  3. On the same Speedlink theme, the S&C orange sets used to appear on Whitemoor-Norwich SLK trips as well, usually just a single set of 4. They were also seen under repair at March Marcroft. I will certainly be in for a pair of these, one loaded one empty, as well as some blue ones. Wallet getting ready for a pounding. Scott
  4. Certinly cannot argue and I would agree with your logic Ben :-) Scott
  5. Those Imerys JNAs were never white, they arrived new in blue as replacements/additions to the earlier PBA Clay Tigers, which as far as I know have still never been produced either in original white or Tiphook blue. As such, I suspect that it is these white clay tigers that Western Aviator is yearning rather than these later wagons. Or then I could have it completely wrong LOL Regards Scott
  6. They look good Robert. I still have two of the blue sets to build to add to my existing three. I foolishly didnt aquire any of the Silcock ones at the time. The orange looks like a fairly good resemblence of a weathered example to me although from seeing them many times on the WCML my memory is telling me that when cleaner they were more orangy. Regards Scott
  7. Here, here to that. Have been waiting seemingly forever for the Cravens 105 to get shrunk.
  8. Another vote for said BDA in faded railfreight red. Scott
  9. As a keen follower of KL2 somehow I had managed to miss the fact that you had started on this build Jeff. Anyhow, I have just spent the last three hours reading through the project so far and have to say that the viaduct, even at this stage, is simply stunning. Looking forward to continuing to follow during 2021. All the best, and a better 2021 than 2020. Scott B
  10. Also ran from Three Spires Jnct (Coventry Colliery) to Didcot. Scott
  11. 31418 in the original series and after refurbishment, 31444 & 31450. Scott
  12. They look great Duncan, especially with all the individual paint jobs. I cannot believe that in this day and age we still have no decent RTR example of this wagon in N. May have to resort to looking at what can be done to the Farish example, especially the hideously thick chassis. Regards Scott
  13. Here you go. One of three images of what look like curtainsiders on John Turners Flickr site. Going by the dates of the images I would think that any blue "doored" versions that are pictured with brown/white UKF versions had, at that point, clearly escaped the repainting program. Scott
  14. 20154 allocation history since the 1970's, a brief two year spell as a Scottish based loco, a month at Haymarket, a month or two at Motherwell with a two year spell at Eastfield in the middle. Gen from the excellent Roger Harris Allocation History of BR Diesel & Electrics. Toton 5/73 Tinsley 12/79 Immingham 7/80 Tinsley 1/82 Haymarket 4/84 Eastfield 5/84 Motherwell 5/86 Toton 7/86 Stored (U) 8/4/93 Wdn 23/12/93 HTH Scott
