"DRS KUA"  in flickr throws up the most odd KUA move with JNAs... (I think we've had this one before)

Glasgow and South Western Growler

 

 

I'm wondering if that KUA had defective brakes and the Falcons were added as brake force to enable it to be moved back to Carlisle. No other pics on Flickr of that move as far as I can see. Interesting move nonetheless.

Just speculating, well guessing really.....if that was a loaded KUA it would have the guard and another Loco (usually) with it, presumably it’s an empty KUA and as empty it would be vastly lighter than loaded, I would have thought a single 37 could easily handle a single unladen KUA?

 

As I say no idea just thinking aloud.

Having seen this consist on RMWeb on the KUA topic, I just had to set it up and take a video. Unfortunately I don't have a MK2 in all blue, so Rule 1 has to apply in this instance.

If anyone is looking for formations Mordern Locomotives Illustrated Issue 249 has a brilliant article about nuclear rail traffic and has some brilliant images of KUA train formations from the last ten years, tempted to try the formation on pages 42-43 if a Bachmann Class 57 can haul both of these excellent wagons. If you want a copy let me know and [Admin Edit - you can go and buy it!]

Must say, though I had reservations about these wagons. On arrival, I thought I won a nuclear mine (I like mines). The weight is quite astonishing at c.420g! Certainly shall need a double headed 20/3 to ensure safe transport. I am pleased to see a number of previous 'quirks' ironed out and a rather pleasing wagon delivered (best to provide an understated compliment than all out praise) as you have done quite well!

For those looking to acquire some escort vehicles, Rainbow Railways have produced a quantity of each of the original MK2as, £70 each:

I've got no affiliation, just popped up on Facebook.

 

Thanks,

I believe Rainbow do small batches using their own paint process, so if you really want one then I'd give them a call to see what they can do, I wouldn't be surprised if they do another batch of demand was there.

Yes i guess Colin will be beavering away as his first batch was vapourised in a flash,i got one of the two before they went and as you say i think a few more will be produced to his high standards,just have to keep an eye on his site if anyone wants a pair to keep your heavies in,thanks Jon.

Sorry.....

No need to apologise - I wasn't after any as I bought 2 from Hornby last year in anticipation - half the price of the Bachmann version.

I was considering this, £75 is a lot for a coach but the Hornby ones look like they fetch about £40 at the moment and these look a lot better.
