I'm building a layout based on South Wales steel and thought I'd nailed all the locos I'd need until I saw this same vid the other day. Might have to get a Yeoman 59 now :D

:o.......oh my bank balance. 

 

I'm sorted on the 37, 56 and 60 front though :rolleyes:

 

And as Eric said, as luck would have it along come Dapol. There's a Railroad Yeoman 59 though seemingly not an ARC.

The first four Yeoman 59s would have been in service for around 4 and a half years when that video was taken. Hard to believe it was so along ago when they first arrived. I first saw them in 1987.

Stunning!!! Don’t know what else to say really! Apart from that I wish I’d ordered some British Steel wagons!!

 

Looking forward to these!

 

They're still available to order "cough cough" 

 

Cheers!

Hi Fran,

 

Nice to see the progress, those BS blue ones do look very good but I’m pleased I ordered the grey/orange ones to create the workings from Shap up to Scotland.

 

Cheers

Mark

Hi Fran

are you intending only doing one set of grey wagons.

regards

John


Hi John, 

 

Correct, demand wasn’t huge for VTG compared to other liveries so just the one pack for now.

 

Thanks,

 

Fran

For some reason I thought I could only run the Mendip stone PTAs in same liveried rakes.  However, I have just watched some video taken at Kensington Olympia in October 1994 of mixed Yeoman/ARC rakes.
 

Time to for me to order some more methinks!

Once the Mendip joint venture was set up, mixed ARC and Yeoman sets were common, as were complete sets operating into the "wrong" quarry or with a "wrong" liveried 59

Looking at the Mendip stone trains now anything with wheels on gets filled with stone,theres all sorts mixed in rakes,if you were heading to London and left your boot open it would be filled with stone........makes for interesting modelling.

Just found another video that shows mixed liveries on the Port Talbot - Llanwern train.

 

 

 

 

So funny it actually looks like someone's model railway with real people :D

If I get the space this is actually high on my list of places to model and in the time period shown in the video. There was a great selection of trains at this time and now with PTAs, BBAs, PFAs etc. all becoming available to a high standard it is getting more tempting. Hopefully  in future Accurascale will do some appropriate 37s too.

Hi everyone,

 

Great news! Our British Steel, VTG and Yeoman PTA/JTA/JUAs are now on the high seas and on their way to the UK! They will be in stock and ready for dispatch in 4 weeks time! We were going to do an unboxing video, but felt it's best left to unboxing experts instead. We think they'll like our packaging though!

No so good news; Unfortunately as we can see with this rather unfortunate image, there has been a slight problem with the ARC variant. We are moulding, then painting these wagons mustard to get the consistency of finish. Unfortunately, there was an issue with the yellow plastic so they will have to be manufactured again.

These will now arrive with the JSAs in December. We apologise for this unforeseen delay, but banana shaped wagons are not acceptable!

 

Cheers!

 

Fran
