Network rail structural gaugeing train I hope

Recommended Posts

Right going to chuck my hat into the fray I am going to attempt to build the gauging train (the black thing with the lights in) this is going to be my first ever scratch built item so this maybe as far as it's ever going to get is this post but I will have a go all I need to do is find some good plans maybe using a pre-built chassis but everything else will be scratchbuilt wish me look gentlemen

Good luck sir! I am currently building my own mentor coach and it has now just been through it's third re-paint... I'm finally happy with it!! Looking forward to see this progress. Is this the train hauled by the NR class 31's?
