A little bit of spraying today on the front of the DBSO 

 

followed up with a picture of two 57’s that I got this week I couldn’t resist 

one of my favourite liveries ,I’ve attached a picture of a 57 pulling some Mk2 Anglia rolling stock ... which will run very rarely on our layout, maybe as a “special “

 

 

one Heljan - weathered 

one Bachmann - brand new 

 

 

thanks for looking

A better coach as it is a mk3a  as in being the loco hauled stock, rather than HST. It has the right roof vents at the ends, rather than the HST style ones.

Now for you to make it a four window type RFM!

Are you going to make the 8 window TSO? As there were normally only two 7 window TSO per train?

 

What will be your train length?

 

Mk2f DBSO 

two 7 window mk2f TSO 68XX

four 8 window mk2f TSO

one mk3a RFM or mk2f RFB

two 7 window mk2f FO

class 86 or 90

 

You have made more progress than I have, as I have only done the first paint coat on a Hornby ex Great Central 4 window RFM. Got it cheap when no one wanted them!

It’s going to be a mix really 

 

 So far I have 

 

DBSO, standard mk2 , standard mk2 , standard mk2 , Mk3 buffet car , mk2 first class , mk2 first class , class 86 

 

currently working on doubling that set above ... so I will have two sets 

 

And I’m also looking at completing the following which I’ll be chopped and changed ....

 

Anglia BSO

Anglia mk2 buffet 

then another 5-6  rolling stock which will run on special services ....

 

we also have a ONE - ANGLIA MK3 set with class 90 and DVT in one colours 

and we are looking into finishing off a mk2 intercity set 

 

do you have a link for your layout?

No topic for my home layout. This has been a work in progress for too long! A folded figure of eight round the loft.

I have done a few n gauge layouts.

Newton Craig went to the club’s exhibition.

I started this one in December, but it has stalled and waiting for inspiration.

 


My club has a good OO 3rd rail layout, I have been working on.

Hi 

 

yes indeed they was , my father was a driver for anglia railways so we wanted to try and cover all aspects of anglia railways especially as they didn’t make a this carriage into a model 

 

 

we currently have 3 DBSO’s in anglia livery but this is something we wanted to create 

 

I think we might end up running 6-7 mark two’s along with this BSO Coach with some Diesel engines either end as a “special “

 

 

thanks for taking the time to look 

Rhys 

 

Just had a read through the thread, like your work !

9520 in Anglia livery was used in the short set, so that's an excuse to run it !

Got pics of various mk2 and mk3 short sets, (Blue/Grey, Anglia, DRS, National Express liveries) if their any use to you ?

 

Cheers,

Phil.

Joining in on the Hello too, Nice work with the Anglia Mk2s! 

 

For the Mk3 RFM - Depending on how much you want to spend, your best bet is to use the Oxford Rail Mk3 RFM available here:

Whatever else you do with it please please get rid of the Jouef wheels into the nearest skip! They are awful and won't stay in gauge.

On the Mk3 RFM Front, you have a good number to chose from as Anglia had 10203 / 214 / 216 / 223 / 228 / 241 / 247.

These are all from 19.8.2011

I'm actually surprised you caught 841 working, That thing was never the best of the 47/8 Fleet! Though by the time you caught it, it was power was provided by 47709s power unit.
