Ran short of time but I’ve separated one of the early ones off and put it on a 51ft underframe, I don’t think I have any 60ft ones available at the moment – I don’t think any HD dynamos were fitted to the shorter underframes but it works as a proof of concept sort of thing. It’s held on by being gripped between the solebar and brake v hanger so it is a little wonky. I've not removed a stabilising bar as I don't know which way round I want this one yet as I've not built a catering coach yet (or anything else that might use a heavy duty one).

And a quick one of the later type.

I also found my open 3rd bodyshell (I built this quite a long time ago, and not very well hence it's not progressed) -

Comparing with photos of the LNERCA open coaches at the NYMR they need lifting slightly and moved nearer the outer walls of course  - looks like mounting to a plasticard base should allow this.

Just a note about FK3D, the supplier of the above - I emailed on a Sunday asking about a different set of the GER Restaurant Car seats (for an RTO), received a reply and quotation by return and had them in my hand on Wednesday afternoon.   Outstanding service and a quality product.

Excellent - it's on my list to get some for one of those at some point so saves me asking :) I assume it's for Bill's D18? I've been toying with asking him for a couple but I think the panelling is wrong for my era.

If it's just the lower panels that need removing, it may be possible if you ask nicely.

Ok, I'll put you down for 2?  

I don't think I'll be ordering from the etchers until after Christmas, so they won't be ready until around the end of February. I'll try and get an updated LNER 51' frame etch in the same batch. 

 

Looks like only two were built but yes please for 2. And definitely the turnbuckle underframe too if possible.

 

Thanks :)
