Re: North Elmham NNAG Layout

I've just watched the excellent video, I just wondered what was done/how the grain tanks were converted to P4? Did you do anything complicated with springing or chicken out like I did and just swap the wheel sets?

That one looks like a pressure vessel possibly gas. CAV, later Lucas, was in Sudbury from from 1911 and was a "modern" high tech manufacture. For instance, they were turning out fuel injectors a from the end of the war onward with the help of my father in law. Quite likely to have the nee...

Re: Tanks (Septic?) as wagon loads?

I tend to agree that the tank in the wagon at Clare looks like it was steel but what do you make of this one at Sudbury?

Tanks (Septic?) as wagon loads?

After all the intellectual content from Virtual Scaleforum trust me to bring the tone down.... This wagon in the yard at Clare in the 1960s appears to be loaded with a round tank. septic-tank.jpg I have seen a similar loads in photographs of Sudbury goods yard though that load appears to be more lik...

Re: Formation (and size) of a pick-up goods train

Returning to the make up of trains I wondered how intelligent the planning was? Noel pointed out that there would be delivery of empty wagons for loading and removal of empty wagons after unloading. Presumable goods clerks at each yard would tell control what wagons were needed and what empties were...

Re: Formation (and size) of a pick-up goods train

thanks for the feedback. I hadn't realised that the fitted wagons would just run as unfitted. I'm now going to display my complete ignorance of exactly how vacuum brakes work. I presumed that the brakes were applied when the vacuum was lost, either by being released out by the driver or by a break i...

Formation (and size) of a pick-up goods train

I'm guessing this question is a bit like 'how long is a piece of string' but I'd like to try and model something which looks right.... So here are my basic premises, I suspect that they might not be correct so please point out where you disagree. Time period is ~1955 The Stour Valley line had 12 int...

Re: What 5-plank wagon is this and what livery should it be?

And the other good thing about having a library is discovering what looks to me like just my wagon, in colour, on the front of Martyn Welch's seminal work 'The art of weathering'. At least by the time I've fixed the brakes and added the tie-rod.

Thanks everyone for your informative responses. Those photographs are really great and give me lots to work on.

What 5-plank wagon is this and what livery should it be?

I've been trying to start renovating some of my wagons which haven't really had a proper look at in the last 15 years. I've learnt a lot over that time and some of my attempts from back then look, well frankly, a bit embarrassing. I'd like to try and get these wagons into a livery suitable for ~1955...

transfers for signals?

Hi All

I vaguely remember a supplier producing transfer sheets for signal arms. My painting isn't really up to what I'd like.

Any ideas who it was?

Re: How tall should cattle dock fencing be?

I put a coat of paint on the fencing and made a little water trough for the corner.

As I am modelling the dock in a disused state I need to add few weeds growing through the concrete.

The surface finish on the gates looks very smooth; which 3D printer are you using?


Anycubic Photon

And now I've just spotted the corner of a beet conveyor parked in the dock.

Re: How tall should cattle dock fencing be?

Much to my surprise my attempts to 3D print the cattle pen gates were actually quite successful. I honestly hadn't expected these to come out given the size.

When fitted onto the dock I think they look the part.

Re: How tall should cattle dock fencing be?

I hadn't actually spotted that water trough - thanks for pointing it out. I think it would be in the far corner and would fit between that corner and the gate on the other side of the dock. I knew the grain loader was a post-1950 addition.
