At shows up and down the UK, RM Webbers and others ask, 'What are you doing next!'

 

What do you suggest, Multiple Units? Shunter? Tamping Machines? Steam Loco? Trackside stuff? Electric Multiple Units?

 

Please help us to help you!! Arran & Charlie

Guest baldrick25

Transpennine class 124 DMU please!!

 

Then 303/305/309 EMUs - there's enough livery variations there to keep you busy. ( not forgetting the scottish blue's)

RTR Warflats and Warwells please! Think of all those lovely military vehicle loads they could carry - And you can get Coil Es out of the warflats too!!!

Small 40HP Fowler 0-4-0DM these were built for many years and if you want to measure one Charlie you know where this one is.

Or the later 0-4-0 Fowler diesel with the rounded bonnet

 

Possibly a Hunslet that has a coat of many colours - I also have a photo of this loco in lined blue at the same spot.

How about pre painted and detailed body swaps for the likes of the Hornby/Bachmann 08's to do the likes of the locos that are similar such as the 10, 11, 12 and the pre-grouping locos?

Should have included this link:

I know where 170 lives too, it's on the Pontypool & Blaenavon Railway

Agreed with Jim, Mk2E/F coaches including all major variations.

 

Secondly, perhaps it would be good to go for a Bombardier product such as the 377, have it modular so that most other Bombardier 37X products can be created. Or alternatively, 185 or 222 units.

Is taking your OO models to N gauge out of the question as that would get my first vote?

 

Failing that, MK 2 air cons would be great - start with the DBSO varients, you know those will sell by the truck load...

 

An AC EMU would be great as well - 305 and their ilk for maximum reuse on common bits of tooling..? 309 would be lovely of course.

 

Or go for broke with the PEP/1972 derived EMU stock (313, 314, 315, 507, 508).

INDUSTRIALS *COUGH

 

Its the relatively untapped market out there, plenty would delve into exchange sidings/industrial railways should an industrial appear... and I've been after a diesel for ages (I can't build brass kits BTW so RTR is curently the only option with my skillset ATM)!

 

As for what to make... the Hunslet diesel shown above would be perfect (used in steelworks, railworks and collieries across the land) but a RSH tank engine would be a winner as well.

Another vote for an industrial diesel.

A Thomas Hill Vanguard like this perhaps

this

would be usefull to a lot of us as it woudn't look out of place on any layout from the 60's onwards. And this type isn't available in kit form (although the bigger Vanguards are).

 

And another vote for a Warflat as well.

how well did the 81 and 85 kit do?

 

would the 82, 83 and 84 be of interest do you think?

 

either kit or rtr

 

should be more interest with Bachmann doing the 85

 

The kits of the 81 & 85 were dissapointing, only 150 ish ever sold, not convinced about overhead stuff!

323 is one for Bachmann we think!
