Anything is possible on the current railway and 50044 has been on the mainline!  When Derby got its track renewal - on one occasion there were 5 Class 50's in the station at one time.  It was like Exeter in the good old days!

 

I suppose 50149 would have been more appropriate.  

 

Maybe its a subtle hint for the future................Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Please!

Yes I would love an alternative to the Hornby 50 too

Not sure about the 50. Haven't the guys on Charwelton got a grid? :mocking_mini:

 

Seriously though, looking forward to giving them a run on Whatley with appropriate traction!

They had a couple kicking around....

Hi Fran

Are there any bundle deals on these wagon sets?

 

Yes, still running, add any two or more packs and you will automatically get 10% off at the checkout!

Hi,

 

I ordered two sets when these were announced but didn’t get a 10% discount, is this a new discount?  If I buy a third set now will I get the 10%?

Im undecided as to which livery to go for. British steel blue/orange or the orange/grey livery.

 

Any advice. 

 

Im not particularly bothered about a specific period but i do quite like the orange/grey sets

There's only one thing to do faced with such a quandary - buy  both of 'em!

Do you model a particular region?

 

Orange and Grey were mostly seen in traffic on flows to Ravenscraig (Glasgow) from Hunterston (longer rakes of wagons) or Hardendale / Thrislington as shorter rakes of around 10 wagons (see photo links below). Still often double headed though because of the gradients and loads involved.

Blue and Orange were South Wales based.

 

Cheers,

Rich.

Solid advice from Rich above (and @Edna Clouds too but we dont want to be seen as greedy!) There is also Rule 1 to apply, and of course our handy formations guide which may help your decision!

Can I just give a massive vote of thanks to the Accurascale team as I realised last night that I’d ordered the wrong BS livery for my era and by this morning they had smoothly sorted it out so that I had ordered the correct orange grey sets, as well as applying the discount I’d missed first time round as I ordered my 3 sets individually. Top guys!  Just my 3 Deltics and 2 37s to wait for now ;-)

it was!

Wish you told me earlier, I only live 15 miles from Felixstowe just off the A14 near the A12/A14 interchange. My PTAs could have been dropped off at my door!!, instead they went right past me and out of Suffolk, to Cambridgeshire, only to come back in a few days. Such a waste (sigh).

Fran et al, was it Felixstowe the stock came through? If so it looks like you were relatively lucky, chaos abounds apparently....

Thanks for the link. It's worrying that 2 months ago, the port owner, Hutchison Ports Europe, appointed a new advisor, the one and only ex UK govt Transport Secretary, Chris 'Failing' Grayling. Maybe it was so he could find out what a port and shipping company looked like which actually has ships. Could explain a lot.

Hi Fran.

Just to let you guys know that following on from the excellent advice on here ive just ordered an inner and outer pack of the British Steel Orange and blue livery. 

 

Im looking to order another two class 37's in DRS livery and a JUA when it arrives. 

 

 

Many thanks

A bit like Michael Gove and qualifications to become Education Minister is that he had once been to School!

Thats what I've done with the orange/grey and British Steel

I've also ordered the Arc and Yeoman packs

Not sure how I'm going to explain to the wife why they are a must.

Chris Grayling  - Says it all really.  At least they are practicing damage limitation - alleged to be paying giving him circa £100,000 per week for around 7 hours (work?)!!!!  

 

He only needs to walk in a room for everything to go tits up!

 

Best Regards,

Looking forward to receiving my ARC rake whenever they arrive, no rush I've got nowhere to put them !

 

I'm sure you're already looking to future livery variations, I know the later Yeoman livery has already been mentioned. I'd like to see these as well, I assume they are ex iron ore ones used for stone. Makes a nice train being only load 10 as well, that would be another 2 packs ordered from me if announced ! ;-)
