  1. At last I found my Pullman to takes it's photograph, it's been in storage because it's too large for my present shunting plank layout, unless I use it as a single coach push-pull unit which is what the Midland railway ended up doing with theirs. This is a modified H0 scale coach, I had started to scratch build one of the early 1870s Wild West Pullmans, following a David Jenkinson article I think from a 1966 Railway Modeller. It did not work for me trying to cut lots of window holes in thin plasticard to build up the coach sides from many layers. I just ended up with hundreds of little bits of shredded plastic and the Pullman bogies I built are too flimsy. So when I saw this coach at a swap meet I though it was a good starting point as it had suitably baroque detailing on the sides and a clerestory roof. I can't remember the make but is says made in Italy underneath. I used the sides and roof. Despite being H0 it is the correct height and I cut it in half and added a strip of plastic to make it the correct width and reworked the roof, which has since gone banana shape I think because I combined balsa wood and plastic to make the clerestory more Pullmanlike. I can't remember exactly what I did to the ends but I remade them into the vestibules and outside steps in the manner of the 1890s Pullmans used on the LB&SCR and the LSWR Bournemouth Express. See the strip of white plasticard to widen it, 6w Pullman bogies from a USA coach, a representation of the 3 gas cylinders the LSWR kitchen coach used to power their cooker. Photo to come Coming back the other way, it should have elaborate gold lining and patterns but I chicken our doing that, a job for computer printer transfer paper perhaps?
