New 'stuff' from Lanarkshire Models & Supplies

So would the DMU be both buffer stools or 4 of one and 8 of other?

 

Need to work out diameter now!

Time has come for an announcement, not tomorrow, next week or next month but tonight.   A wee hint - it is, they are electric....

Sorry but you are all wrong....

 

Electric lamps LNER style.  Consists of etched fold up lamp brackets to suit LNER pacifics with a single centre lamp and B1 which had a double lamp in the centre, the etches have the grab handle for the pacifics which can be removed for the B1.

 

Another announcement tomorrow....

Don't you just love the suspence.

P.S. it's a scrap loco body and I didn't paint it....

Oi!  (Last time I got exited I was in your local).

 

 

 

PS. I've got some pics of the early standard fit 101 DMU buffers (that hardly anybody knows about)  if you're interested.

Nice. Handy for the cathode on LEDS. That's if I could see the bl**dy pics as Mr G has screwed your post up.

...don't you just love a good product announcement, the anticipation, the excitement, the buzz and then the inevitable let down that it isn't your favourite loco, coach, wagon, lamp post, buffer* (*delete as appropriate)...still there are the dancing girls to look forward too...

 

...cue the dancing girls someone.

 

...PS any chance of a webbed NER buffer?

I'm fairly confident these can't obtained anywhere - any chance of a GNR coach buffer?

 

GNR Quad-Art coach

 

A lot of LNER built coaches also received these instead of the usual round or clipped round :)

Tonights announcement although overshadowed by the news from that there London is epic for some but deflating for most I'm sure.

 

People have been pestering me for ages for DMU buffers but details and sizes have been difficult to find believe it or not.

 

Here we have a very common early DMU buffer

Other DMU buffers are OLEO pneumatic types fitted later, these have either 20'' or 22'' heads.

Dave, 

 

Are you doing the non angled stools for the DMU buffers for us Met Cam and Cravens fans? Or is it a case of filing down the angled stools?

You'll be meaning these Davey?  Now I'm sure a man of Mr. F's skills could also sort out a decent etch for the lump brackets.

Now to the very common  (but rarely acknowledged) early 101 buffer. Any Chance Mr. F. They lasted until the seventies on some units. Nice & sexy. Different lamp brackets too. Apologies for quality of the image but i couldn't be ar$ed to dust of the neg.
