Profile Information

  • Location
    In the lost triangle of Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.
  • Interests
    Interested in both the Southern Pacific RR and ATSF in California during the late 70's/ early 1980's but stopped modelling them because of the lack of dealers in the UK, so now modelling the current UK railways in the Peterborough and Stamford areas.

    The layout I'm now building is of Ketton signal box and surrounding area. It won’t be 100% correct but it will be as authentic as it can be with the space I have.

    Also interested in London Transport's RT, RM and RML bus's, photography, aviation (both civil and military, riding motorbikes, music from hard rock to classical, depending on my mood plus loads more.

  1. I’m surprised that 91103 is still with us as I was talking to a LNER driver last week and it seems to spend more time being fixed than out on the road. He said the body and running gear are sound but the internals are shot. Maybe the intervals from 91108 are going to trade places with 103?
  2. Yes, it’s DR98909+DR98959 and got a great picture of it.
  3. I think your on a no win solution regarding this survey as you’ll never please everyone. I think you should look carefully at peoples suggestions but I would stay with the more modern era and leave steam to others.
  4. Probably not but more likely a Class 47. Remember a 25 from Bescot or Crewe might appear also.
  5. Even though it was a Tinsley out station, it would not be uncommon to find mainline power from Toton stabled there, especially as more and more “Merry-go-round” coal trains ramped up.
  6. I’m not sure if this the right thread for this but I’d like to model B1 61306 as it is now and I was wondering if anyone would give me pointers to the best recently released DCC ready OO scale model that’s close to the prototype. I know absolutely zip about steam but I’d still like to “get it right” rather than close enough.
  7. I was a participant with one of the teams in this years challenge but Steve was talking with the production company about scheduling to make sure the series was aired before Warley and he could make sure the winners were in MR at the same time. I hope that clarifies things for you.
  8. As a participant in this years challenge, Steve Flint wanted the shows aired earlier so he had enough time to get the winning layout in the December issue of Railway Modeller in time for Warley.
  9. If you do another 144 in Abellio Northern, I’ll definitely have one, maybe two lol.
  10. Hi Charlie, any idea when the “pre-order” book for the Class 142’s will be opened?
  11. Would the same apply to EWS/DBC’s FKA “Megafret” paired twin wagons?
  12. I believe both wagons are individually numbered but I can’t seem to find out if they stay as matched pairs or swopped about.
  13. I was doing some research on these wagons and because they are matched pairs, I was wondering if they are still numbered consecutively or have they mixed and matched as and when they come up for exams or overhaul?
  14. The Class 156’s are also Northern bound because of type familiarity.
