Re: FR double Fairlie Livingston Thompson

Ah that's very helpful thank you, I need to make the bunkers still!
Looks like it may be closer to Victorian maroon than the "Fairlie maroon".

FR double Fairlie Livingston Thompson

Hi guys, I'm looking at making a model of Livingston Thompson as is currently in the NRM. Can anyone confirm if the locomotive is painted in FR Victorian maroon or the newer, lighter shade seen on Merddin Emery's? Some pictures of its visit to the FR in the last decade seem to show it's a different ...

How did you cut the ends without fluffing up the MDF?

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

The FR beer waggon is a replica of a single plank "general purpose" waggon from the old FR. Originally when the replica was built it was used a lot for carrying the Purple Moose ale in casks for Spooner's; now it's gone back to a general purpose demonstrator waggon.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I'm almost certain that Van 5 was fully glazed in the obs section. Festipedia states that it was a composite; I imagine the obs section was first, similar to the glazed porthole bug boxes.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Good luck Andrew!
I'm amazed that these vans have never really been modelled in any of their guises, apart from Perfect World.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hi Andrew, Seems the weight is the main issue then, otherwise it would run well would it. :?: Would a flat wagon with really small wheels help, then you could possible add some weight with a heavy load like slate or even a hollow box with some led in it.... :scratch: Yep - When running as a three w...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

I think it's a good way to showcase different methods of construction and finish for the same piece of stock. For example, Andrew and myself both have FR van 10/2 (not sure what it's called now) and carriage 23. Andrews is finished as per the 20's whereas mine are "as preserved" in order to run them...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hi JMORG, I'm pretty sure it was Beddgellert. It would have been a couple of years either side of 1970. I was only a kid but I vividly remember being on holiday in the area. We went up Snowdon on the train that year (Dad managed to blag us a seat in the front with the Guard!). One of my clearest me...
