Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Looking good Andrew!
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...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Could try the IP axle boxes? They add extra weight as well!

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Hello! As a relatively rare treat, I've bought myself a kit to build, Lineside Hut's version of the Ffestiniog timber bolsters, which arrived today. First impressions are that there's an impressive amount of parts to put together, and that they seem well cut, but that for some reason the wagons are...

Re: Internet "forums" are a thing of the past

What has increased significantly is attempts by bots and spammers trying to join! They'll never build a bot that can accurately replicate our nerdiness! Well,mine anyway, I guess I should only speak for myself! You'll be surprised at how sophisticated they can get! A lot of forums I use have tests ...
