Great sequence John.


Brought to mind my train-spotting trips to Bournemouth Central when I was a nipper. Extra coaches were put on to the up Weymouth  trains. They were pushed into the empty platform by a shunter (03 or 04 I think) so that people could get on, then pulled out to a siding while the Weymouth part ran in - usually behind a ‘Merchant’.


Then the Bournemouth coaches were pushed back into the platform and buffered up to the rest of the train. Can’t imagine that now! We loved it because sitting in the siding we could see into the shed easier.

Every coach you build takes you ever closer to the ‘rule’: “no two the same in a GWR train”! 

Each time I see photographs on this thread I think about building some of the carriages in my stash. I’ve not furthered any of them so far, but maybe one time. Thank you for the inspiration.
