Quote from: Madasasteamfish on April 29, 2022, 04:48:26 PMErm... could someone please take my credit card away? Or at least do something to hinder/prevent me shipping online?I've just secured a pair of die-cast buses for use on Dukeswood (either as is or reference for appropriate public transport liveries), and it took a force of will not to add anything else to the basket...

Quote from: The Bullet on June 10, 2022, 06:28:13 PMHi James,thanks, this is a good piece to my puzzle.I do not have this book.I have Maskelyne's "locomotives I have known" and found a description in the second book.I also odered: Edward Talbot- A history of LNWR Engines.Hotspur also offer parts like the slotted splashers (a nightmare to machine from scratch), cab and smokebox parts,....There is also a nice Teutonic class loco for sale now in 3.5" gauge.I already habe the Problem class as a project but maybe......

Quote from: MWBailey on June 18, 2022, 01:37:01 AMI hope you mean you're reworking them. I love the old "varnish" coaches (American term for our 19th century passenger rolling stock, referring to the heavy use of that kind of exterior finish used on them back in the day).By the way, I've forgotten your preferred modeling scale...
Quote from: The Bullet on June 18, 2022, 08:07:04 AMHi James,looking good. Please show us more pictures. (and info aboout the prototype).Even though I wanted "no other project beside the Problem Class loco", the inevitable has happened.Another "Running restoration" is heading for my workshop.
Quote from: Madasasteamfish on July 07, 2022, 08:55:04 PMErmm, do you think I've got enough teak coaches?With a decent mix of corridor composites and brake 3rds I think I've amassed enough to fill all the LNER passenger trains I want to run on Dukeswood:2 clerestory roof coaches behind my V3 as a commuter service2 composites and a brake 3rd behind my Sandringham as an intercity express (Lincoln to Sheffield/Manchester) and the same behind a K3 (or similar) hauling a holiday train to somewhere like Cleethorpes/Skegnessthen remaining coaches behind a Gresley pacific (or similar) hauling a to/from London Express (I have plans to model my own version of the Master Cutler, the Sheffield Pullman and or South Yorkshireman).Of course, all being Hornby stock, the arc roof coaches have the same running numbers, so renumbering them all bar 2 will be another 'roundtoit' job, along with adding an interior to the clerestory roof coaches and a few passengers.Now, onto my MR/LMS coaches! and the fish train(s)! and the coal trains! and the steel train! and the mail train! and.....I think that might be enough for now.
