Branchlines LMS/ MR 48ft newspaper van

Recommended Posts

Hi there.....I. Bought one of these kits at rail wells last year and am just starting it, it all seems fairly straightforward except I do not seem to be able to find any transfers for the the kit, namely “LMS or Midland newspaper van “ which appears to go along the side of the van, I would be grateful if anyone has done one of these vans and could tell me where to obtain said the transfers I have looked at the normal transfer companies HMRS, model master etc, perhaps I have missed it......regards Dave brighty.....

Sorry, not an answer to your question.

 

But this sounds like an interesting vehicle (I like NPCCS). Can anyone here tell me until when they lasted in service?

According to the instructions with the kit the first was withdrawn in 1933 and the last one in 1944...........a total of 4 being built in 1901/2.....2 weighing vans, and 2 packing vans...........Dave.......

Which appears to only be available in 7mm?

 

Well, I have a couple of sheets at 4mm scale, admittedly bought a good while ago. Try contacting them - I did so by email via their web form last autumn when they were out of LNWR transfers; at least I had an idea of what their re-stocking schedule might be and indeed patience was rewarded. If they don't know there's demand for these transfers, they won't be in a hurry to reprint them.

Well problem solved...........a chance phone call with a fellow modeller reveals he has sheet 24 lurking in the depths of a cupboard so there we are work can start on the coach.......thank you to those who gave various advice.......regards Dave brighty.......
