Superb pic and quite different. Well done.

 

The snapper should have asked the geezer towards the front to pull his troos up before hitting the shutter.

Some interesting ones of mine. Don't worry, the background is edited in, I'm not that good!

1894

 

 

Firstly, I know the backgrounds are different in each photo, I just was playing around. Secondly, the bus (and the sneaky Warship lurking in the bottom left) are obviously not prototypical for all the dates! Again, it's just an experiment.

I remember coaches like that in the coach parks at Barry Island and Porthcawl well into the early 60s; the coach and sneaky Warship are compatible if the sneaky Warship is in a pre-Blue livery.

Oh I know the Coach would have been fine for the later dates, just not 1890! Also I don't think the warship could have been seen in 1936. But yes it is in red, so possible for 1958

Or based on the weather this afternoon perhaps this should have been the picture

Good evening,

 

May I ask what the coach is behind the TPO in the first photo please. 

 

Thanks, Chris. 

 

Hi Chris it is an Xp64 SK, it is based on a Southern Pride kit but detailed, there is a thread on here showing progress so far (it is not quite finished)

Thanks. I like stuff like that. 

 

Is there a link to your thread please?  I’d like to see how you get on with the XP64 stock. 

 

Thanks, Chris.

Hi Chris,

 

Please see below:

https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/142659-00-gauge-xp64-sk-build/&tab=comments#comment-3480592

 

Over the years I have built a few odd ball (at the time) coaches including a MK1 BSO and Motorail flats, both now available RTR so no doubt someone will produce some XP64 stock in the future....

A couple from my Crossways fleet which although admittedly not trains I thought some might like to see.

It came from a company called Model Slipway as was sold as a full RC steam drifter scale 1/72.

I converted to a waterline model, added a new bridge structure and many other improvements to turn it into a static model.

 

I have just had a look on their website and they don't appear to do it anymore.
