I don't see DRS :jester:

 

Funnily enough my first thought was to badly photoshop a DRS one as a tongue in cheek response to the conversation about the real ones being photoshopped!

That would have been good but you may get those who wouldn't get it and try to order causing a furor in the process and a page of back'n'forth...actually that would be even funnier :D

Hi everyone,

 

We like that the sight of these DRS branded wagons are giving you similar head scratching moments to us when we first saw them. We weren’t quite sure if they were dodgy photoshop either, but since looked into it and can confirm they were very real. To our knowledge two wagons got the branding for a trial service for Shap Summit - Salford stone workings under DRS.

 

Id also never doubt Tommy’s pedigree! If he saw it and snapped it then it’s real! 
 

Cheers!

Brilliant, Thank you Fran! I knew they were real but couldn't remember which freight flow they were going on trial for. I couldn't work out if it was one of the Settle & Carlisle flows to Drigg (which later used JNAs borrowed from GBRf) or the Shap - Salford workings. I have a feeling they may have from from the batch we once had in storage in Eastleigh Works - They rather rapidly filled the works up at one point with those and the ex Silverlink / London Midland 321s!

And it means you can add a Colas 47 as traction, as this is what took them south.

47739 4Z47 Freshford 13/04/10.

Flickr pic has auto embedded, click it for details of the working.

59003 has also taken them away, ex Eastleigh works.

Spot on Tom, I remember you showing me these photos at the time - no doubts they existed.

Cheers Paul

I don’t think anyone is doubting you at all (I’m certainly not) but the original pictures looked so much like a really bad photoshop job!!

For all those doubters still out there (you know who you are) here are some further shots of the logos on the wagons with the wagon numbers visible

Thanks for the close ups Tom, I'll have to check my photos later to see if they were from the Eastleigh batches!

In the last few months I sold my N gauge versions of these. They were certainly on a like to have list in OO to go alongside the HTA’s and HHA’s so I was pleased to see this announcement. With the funds raised I’ve now been able to order a rake of 20 and watching videos of them through Carlisle there are nice mixed rakes with all brandings so the selection offered make this easy to create. Main issue will be building the big layout for them all to run.

 

Cheers

Mark
