Availability of 7mm diesels in UK


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just to let you know that I have finally updated this page to reflect the current state of play, I've probably forgotten or overlooked something though.

One thing I have also done is to put website links in where I can find them (most were either from my own 'favourites ' or the Guild traders page!

Cheers,

John E.

Might be a little cheeky but do not forget the DMUs (and EMUs) from Peter Clark models..........

 

He, he!:D

I have 'started' such a list but after doing so much 'trawling' to develop this list, I needed a good break! If you PM me, I will send you what I have if you'd like!;)

Cheers,

John E.

What about

El Crappo
? You've left that one off the key. El Crappo, what's that all about? :huh: I can't believe there's a kit maker called El Crappo.

Hi Dave,

Yes! A hard to believe name but there was indeed a kit manufacturer who called themselves such. Probably quite tongue in cheek from what I've heard!

Sadly I can't recall any further details of who was involved right now, perhaps one of our more learned friends could contribute, please?

Cheers,

John E.

Hi All,

 

The Tinsley paired '08's' as class 12?? Or was it 13? I suppose it's a fork out for 2x 08 kits then a heavy modding on a cab etc... ...a brave mans job!

But another class of loco that's available!

 

Regards

 

13

MMP.

El Crappo was a range of 7mm kits by Colin Massingham of MTK fame.

 

A bit more about the man and his kits here:

ISTR there was some sort of disclaimer on the box, that went something like 'hammer and nails not included. Finished model may not resemble prototype', or something along those lines!

Hi there,

Thanks for that video, the Fell is quite a strange looking machine, I must say! It looks odd with it's coupling rods flashing up & down like that! I also like the early BR blue electric loco, you must have wide interests on your layout!

Very nice looking layout by the way with lovely music!

Cheers,

John E.

Hi,

Its the Judith Edge North Eastern electric EE1, I have put it into the 1950's express loco blue as I reasoned that if it was repaired for use on the Woodhead at Doncaster instead of scraping, it would have followed the A1's into the paint shop, its powered by two motors and twin Delrin drives for the center wheels.

Cheers,

S.

Great resource here. Is anyone updating it?

Doesn't look like it, ive compiled a excell spreadsheet of 7mm diesels, electrics, DMU's & EMU'S which I could try and cut and paste here, not sure if I've missed anything, but, I'm sure someone will help point out errors or omissions.

Good idea Ian, I'd like to see an updated list.

 

By the way, did you receive a little something from me recently?

When I read this list, I thought wistfully about the huge variety of diesel locomotives we had on our railways in the 1960s and 1970s compared with today's utterly boring and rather antiseptic railway.
