  1. Can't find anything in Peto's,but just found the livery data sheet for the 48xx/58xx,which states" tank sides and ends, GREEN ,tank tops BLACK,as is all associated tank top equipment" so my best guess is anything forward or above the tank tops would be green.(Assuming a green liveried loco). atb Phil
  2. Perhaps a look in Peto's Register ( the 4800 and 5800 tanks) may help? I'll have a look myself later and see if there are any hints. atb Phil
  3. That's coming along nicely James, a Proper job, in fact. Phil
  4. I'll take that as a yes - possibly, then. Phil (Methinks the gentleman protesteth too much).
  5. Now that's more like it................... atb Phil
  6. I must say, that certainly looks as I remember them,(dirtier of course),and in later days, faded blue and yellow. Cheers Phil
  7. £55 for delivery? That sounds excessive! Where are you living, Outer Mongolia? atb Phil
  8. Actually, the chap with his hands on his hips looks like a shunter I know, does a bit of diesel driving at Chasewater...... Cheers Phil
  9. I seem to mind that Eileen's Emporium had some wire mesh about the right size at a reasonable price. atb Phil
  10. As opposed to a "Hell I've had enough of this!"(Bang! Rattle! as it lands in the bin) project................ Cheers,and a Happy New Year to you all out there. Phil
  11. Looks good to me.Keep you off the streets for a while. ATB Phil
  12. Merry Christmas and New year back to you and Lez. Cheers Phil
  13. Likewise from me ,Alan. Hope it's a good one. Cheers, Phil
  14. Don't know if it's just me, but that gear lever looks a bit long? I'd say Frank would be banging his head on it............... atb Phil
  15. There seems to be a lack of quality control on Dapol wheelsets. You may peruse at your leisure my findings about Dapol wagon wheels on '3 Pots Yard'. Cheers Phil
  16. Looks like he's trying to fire a Bagnall 0-4-0 tank, except his shovel is a tad too long! atb Phil
  17. Excellent work, Giles. Simplicity and neatness appear to be your trademarks. Well done. Phil
  18. Proper job that, Alan. First class. Phil
  19. Ah ,well, in the good old days locos were just moved about as required, usually stuck into a goods train, or maybe towed by a light engine(with a caretaker crew , of course)Nowadays a charge has to be made(as the railways must turn a profit)to shift things about, and "Hey Presto! " the road haulage industry can undercut the prices again. Mind you ,as they have to use a specialised haulier it will still cost a fair old wad of money to do the job. I suspect the above picture truck and trailer would cost at least the thick end of £250k .The last new truck I drove was £85k about 12 years ago and that was without a body or a Hiab crane mounted< and was only a 6 wheeler. Phil
  20. Could be there's been other unseen damage, a lot of transmissions on buses have air/electrical gear changes (I know my last truck had)and maybe the electric have gone haywire - no electrics or air, no go! atb Phil
  21. Looks like the bottom half of a chaldron wagon. atb Phil
  22. You may as well give up Andy, and come back to the dark side...............you know it makes sense! Phil
  23. Absolutely magic Giles.So neat and simple.I take my hat off to you,sir. Phil
