Concrete fans rejoice, Plastikote Suede has returned, Praise be. Here on their UK website, http://plasti-kote.co.uk/inspiration And available on eBay, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122170687634 cheaper on Amazon, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Plasti-Kote-Spray-Paint-Plastic-Light-x/dp/B01M09AZOU and no doubt elsewhere. All three original colours appear to be offered, tan, mid-brown and chocolate. The label is new but I've used it and the formulation seems exactly the same. .
Less common now than they were, LT owned a fair number of SR [later BR] pattern, concrete, line side structures. These could be found [paired with the SR-type toolshed] for example at Amersham [an excellent photo exists on the District Dave website] and can still be found on the north side of the line between Acton Town and South Ealing. There may well be others still around. A 7mm [only] resin kit has been produced and is now available to purchase from Roxey Mouldings. This also has internal fireplace and smokehood/flue detail - if you want tables and chairs, then you're on your own!
A question for Southern folk, or to those who have access to the PW on a preserved railway... SR concrete chipping bins, what are their dimensions? I have this excellent recent book which contains lots of photos and drawings of various concrete products. Whilst it has photos of a chipping bin there's no accompanying drawing. Any help appreciated. Just in case it's not clear what I mean by chipping bin, it's one of these: My guess so far is that they are about 7'6" long, 3'6" deep and 2'6" tall.
In his book “An Approach to Building Finescale Track in 4 mm”, Iain Rice refers to the Peco Individulay Concrete sleepers as representing the F40 sleeper. The Manchester Model Railway Society website (http://www.mmrs.org.uk/technical/track3.html) states that the F40 was introduced in 1983 and was the standard sleeper until superseded by the longer G44 in 1999. Does anyone know which sleeper type the Concrete sleepers produced by Exactoscale are meant to represent? It is not a major point, but I am looking to explain my track renewals history, so that I can justify a mix of bullhead and flat bottom rail and timber and concrete sleepers. Regards David
