As far as I know the fly ash workings out to llandudno Junction finished in about 1983. I have imagined it ran until 1986. If it did it might have had a class 58 vice class 56 now and then. 58s did work out on the coast on driver training runs in the mid 80s.

 

I need to get some loads sorted for these wagons does anyone know the part number for the parkside loads. These are the old type Hornby MGR.

 

Cheers Peter.

If you can make up the plastic inserts for the wagons then this shop may be able to assist with the loads

Thanks for that. I will see how I go but I am thinking of using ash from the wood heater.

I am not sure what the colour of fly ash is so I need to find some pics but but I can always add some darker tint.

 

Cheers Peter.

I was asked for some info on my old Hornby and lima mk2s. I thought I would share the pics here. 

I find a painted interior and flush windows really helps these coaches  look a bit Better.

Is M5364 a prototypical running number for the blue/grey Trans-Pennine branded coach? I am looking at branding a couple of N gauge ones like this, but the only running numbers I have found mentioned anywhere are 5323 and E5520. Thanks.

I did this coach over 20 years ago so I couldn't say for sure if it is correct. I did try and get things right and would have tried to find  the right number I am sure someone will know.

 

Cheers Peter.

Of course they're stabled! No trains on Christmas Day.

 

Best wishes to you all as well.

Thanks John, Well I am pretty sure there wasn't back in the 80s though not sure about these days. Trains were running here today.

All the best.

Nice photos as usual Peter, hope all is good down under, working on a plan to get down under in 2 or 3 months time.

Thanks John,  All good at the moment. It would be great to see you if you do get down here but I think we will be back in lockdown soon  i am hearing rumours. 

 

Cheers Peter.
