  1. The Folio on the NRM website shows it’s approx 6000mm wheelbase so much shorter.
  2. I think you are spot on Stephen…….only the markings are different. Looks like a shorter wheelbase so I won’t be making that.
  3. The above link doesn’t work….. hopefully this one will………https://www.ngsjoin.com/ngs-shop---ex-modelmaster-transfers--etched-numbername-plates-57-c.asp
  4. Image from eBay……but can anyone nail the wagon diagram. Distinctive door bracing. I’ve been through the ferry van section on Paul Bartletts site but no match. It’s York by the way. I will go through the folio book on the Barrowmore MRC site too. I’m hoping it is a standard 8000mm wheelbase van so that I can use the NGS ferry van chassis. TIA.
  5. Yorkshire area NGS meeting today… a dry run for the forthcoming Open Day so all the TTrak modules were assembled as per and the Freemo boards were up to. I finished off a couple of Metcalfe kits to add to my TTrak modules and a nice long parcels train for the yet to be weathered class 40.
  6. Limited free parking is available on site, but there is plenty of unrestricted free on street parking. Bus route 11 stops almost outside the Community Centre.

    Limited free parking on site but ample free on street parking. Bus route 11 stops almost outside the hall.
  8. Just back from a short break to Bergen in Norway…..some train, LRT and funicular action during our stay. An organised tour as part to the holiday included the Flam Railway. The locos used on their are the Norwegian version of the SBB class 460…..so about 14000hp on a six coach train makes light work of the maximum gradient of 1 in 18!
  9. Before I use up the last of my ferry van ventilators I’d better cast some for future use. I thought it should be possible to make the mould using Silicon sealant? What resin did you use Paul? TIA.
  10. The T-Trak modules also got a trip out. The gantry to hold the earlier signs was also largely completed, no photos yet.
  11. After the third attempt to get a roof on the Italian ferry van I finally succeeded…..and a start on assembling the second one.
  12. A reasonably productive day in Heworth at the Yorkshire area NGS meeting……..even if it did involve me going back home to get my tool box that I’d forgotten to pick up! 47480 Robin Hood got to stretch it’s legs this week with some Mk2s that hadn’t been out of the box before.
