NSE General Managers Saloon #975025, ex-Hasting Buffet, NOT the current green version

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Does anybody have any pictures of the following vehicle available that they would be willing to make available here please ?

 

The vehicle is TDB975025, the NSE General Managers Saloon, which is an ex Hastings buffet coach, and I'm interested in it BEFORE it turned green and got itself a facelift !

I have posted the above picture in the belief that this is permissable as long as I am not 'earning' from it, but please advise if I have misunderstood this ?

 

I am attempting to build a model of the vehicle and can not find much reference material out there.........nor do I know where I ought to be looking.

 

I have some excellent brass sides and cab ends here that have been specially made for me but need help particularly with the chassis and u/f boxes etc.

 

The last time I worked with the saloon, the kitchen staff dished up some stunning nosh..........for our jaunt around LUL territory !

 

Many Thanks in advance........

 

Dave

Didn't Charles and Diana travel in this one on their way to honeymoon at Broadlands? That may give some alternative search terms when Googling for pictures...

Are you an SEmG member, Dave? I suggest you join and ask the question on there. Greg Beecroft, who I think wrote the detailed book on Hastings diesels, is an SEmG member and he, among several other v knowledgeable types, may be able to help you.

 

If you need any convincing about the depth of knowledge, there is a discussion under way just now involving MLV shoegear....

Thanks for the replies gents.........

 

I'm gonna stick with traditional methods for now to get this together using fotopic and pre-acquired material.

 

It has occured to me that a lot of the underframe equipment must be laid out similarly to as it always was.......but I can use comparative reference to work this out for now.

 

Kindest Regards,

 

Dave

Bit late, but just out of the box for scanning, at some sort of open day/event I think at Andover in 1986:

I have a couple in NSE sent to me by a club member, the saloon was attached to a 33 in Princes Risborough, someone on this group is building an O gauge version.
