Re: GWR number plates

Just received Nameplates and Bunker numbers from Narrow Planet, for two Locos currently under construction. They measure 0.16mm in thickness. I'm very happy with them and they will look great on the finished Locos. JPEG attached. No interest, other than a satisfied customer. :thumb

Re: LSWR/SR 02 Class - Drawings

Jeremy, A couple of photos of an O2 bogie from the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Detail from General Arrangement drawings or Line drawings may not show some of the detail revealed in a photo. Hope they help. By the way, I've just started on an Alan Gibson O2 and have a second to scratch build myself....

Re: LSWR/SR 02 Class - Drawings

Hi Jeremy, The best drawings of this class I have come across are in Railway Modeller July 1992, page 316. Although the article is for Kit building in 7mm scale the excellent set of drawings by Ian Beattie are reproduced in 4mm scale. The drawings show original bunker along with the final enlarged I...

Re: Stroudley Class E1 0-6-0 T

Thank you, Geraint, Keith and Charlie for your information. I have now discovered that 4' 6" 14 spoke wheels with a 9" inline crank are not manufactured. The closest match I can find is an Alan Gibson 4' 6" 14 Spoke wheel with a 9 1/2" crank between the spokes. I will order them ...

Stroudley Class E1 0-6-0 T

Good evening all,

Can anyone let me know where I can find the "throw" for a Stroudley E1 Tank from the Driving Axle to the Connecting Rod Crank? I have been unable to track down a sufficiently detailed drawing.

Re: Replacement of Dapol Chassis

Thank you Mark and John for your replies. I will follow your suggestions to see where they lead, fingers crossed :thumb I have been advised to try E B Models and 5 and 9 Models for LBSCR items, which I will try later today. LSWR continues to draw a blank, never mind, something will turn up :!:

Re: Brettell Road

Hi, What about a sign or name board painted on the brickwork of the building on the opposite side of the road with only half of it showing due to the gates being open? It may give some idea of depth. Possibly someone appearing to wait outside of the gates on the opposite side of the road. Just a tho...

Re: Best option for a Terrier

I recently purchased the Albion Terrier Kit via Roxey Mouldings. It looks very good with good instructions. It has been added to my stash of kits to do once I eventually finish my Stroudley E1. Give Roxey a call I found him to be immensely helpful and received the Terrier Kit in a very short time. M...

Re: Manning Wardle no. W1

Hi Mark, The photo supplied by CSP models is the same one I referred to as being in MacLeod's Other Island; but the one in the book is a lot clearer, this is probably because the publisher has taken the image from the original and not just copied a copy. The problem with the picture is the way the l...

Re: Manning Wardle no. W1

Hi there Mark, Locomotives Illustrated No 149 , page 28 gives a very good representation, an excellent rear view is available on page 48 of MacLeod's Other Island by Terry Hastings and Roger Silsbury. I cannot find a picture of Medina, W1, with a black saddle tank, lined out green is the norm. The I...
