Re: JJNewitt's Wonderful World of Wagons

A BR 1/801 fish van. So many options from the trade already for this genus, and none up to scratch? BTW, any chance you'll turn your hand to the SR 4-wheeled NPCS (PMV/BY/CCT) family? There aren't any options from the trade for this particular variety of fish van. As far as I'm aware there has neve...

Re: JJNewitt's Wonderful World of Wagons

Well that took a while! Over a year ago I mentioned Plate wagons. Currently there are three on the go and this is the first of them to approach being finished: IMG_2946.JPG The wagon is of course from a Rumney Models test etch. It represents a BR diagram 1/431 vehicle that has been retrofitted with ...

Not yet but a recent reasearch trip has plugged info gaps that I had from measuring them up the first time. I do want to try and get some castings done at some point this year and they are on the list.

Re: Goings on at the Norfolk Wagonarium

There's a picture of an out of the box lot 3391 Vanwide on page 47 of 'Wagons of the final British Railways era' by David Larkin. The lettering is very similar to how you've done the model. The major difference is that the tare weight is under the wheelbase and the 12T is sited centrally above the n...

Justin, I wonder if it was related to the change in position of the body mounting springs on lot 3082, which were on the internal longitudinals, not the solebars?

Re: Starting From Scratch - SGW meets Inglenook

In the search for the simplest possible method of springing buffers, plastic or white metal, may I suggest it is preferable to drill right through 0.5mm first. You will find it is quite practical do this by hand with a drill in a pin vice(for methods see below). So long as this first hole is accura...

Many thanks for the replies gents. I've sent you a PM Philip. I'd got it into my head that Eillen's only did wire down to 36SWG which is the smallest I currently have. The 41SWG stuff could prove to be useful.

Re: Fitting W irons

Since the ‘nuclear’ option of staying true to the prototype in every last detail remains unattainable, usually scuppered by the things that don’t scale - like gravity, or the properties of readily available materials - we all have to choose compromises. If 4mm/ft leaf springs behaved as predictably...

Hi Noel,

I wasn't aware of the articles by Peter Fidczuk. I'll have to try and seek them out! Those ratios for wooden bodied minerals are a useful guide, thanks for sharing them. I'll have a look through MRJ 151 as well.

Those figures are useful Justin, however those of us a bit older(!) remember the series by Don Rowland which said you needed 400 mineral wagons for every 4F (or thereabouts). I keep looking for the 400 minerals whenever I see a 4F, in vain. I think Don's article fell on deaf ears ( I don't have any...
