Slaters slate wagon paint prep

Hi all,

Just a quick query I hope you could answer. Has anyone ever attempted to grit/bead blast a Slaters FR slate wagon?

Metal printing - ask here for advice

Hi gents, As some of you may know my occupation is in metal Additive Manufacturing applications. I've been paying attention to this sub-forum and enjoy the content you're creating. Obviously a metal machine will not be available for domestic use for some time but there are some companies around that...

Re: IP Engineering freelance carriages

Lineside Hut carriages are good! We have a Corris coach and van (modified to have a ducket). We did scrap the original roof's and replace them with aluminium but there was no doubt the roofs on them are designed well. The bracing was kept to add rigidity to the carriage sides. The only metal roofed ...

Re: FR. Sentry box brake van.

Hi Dave, From what I can work out, not much of the Boston Lodge archive survives from that time. It's assumed the 3 vans were made at BL (along with the running gear of the carriages). The sentry boxes are also not an original feature of the vans, these were later added. Whether the Spooner's actual...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Looks excellent Andrew! Despite being MDF mr Sharples does make some good stuff! I'm making two of his Simplex locomotives at the moment and they're very easy and well thought out! I have a Slater's Ashbury being painted for a group member, I'm basing it off of yours (but using NWNGR red). FRHG are ...

Re: IP Engineering freelance carriages

We've added wooden strips along the length of the roof former, much more effective and even than the standard kit.
We've now replaced the roofs of all carriages with rolled aluminium...

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

It is a Timpdon one, but I added some plastikard strip to the sides and the doors to complete it. I also fitted Swift Sixteen bogies instead of the originals. The one issue I have with it is the height - all the pictures I've seen of the FR toastrack replica show the height as roughly the same as th...

Looks good Andrew! What did you use for the handle in the end?
I got two of Phil's coal waggons, they're easy to put together but the rivetting is not my favourite part!

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

Andrew,

The mystery carriage: is it old F&WHR? Unless it's another Gladstone I cannot guess what other carriage has partitions like that from the NWNGR (the workman's and one corridor carriage didn't have doors)...
The only alternative is an FR van? Again they had mainly compartment stock.

Re: (WH)WHR Rolling Stock

It's been a while since I've added some WHR stock: IMG-20201031-WA0014~2_compress49.jpg Modern WHHR carriage 6 in the current livery. Was unsure at first how it would look but now I think it looks great. IMG-20200525-WA0019~2_compress61.jpg Brake van (the unnumbered one) in both liveries! Both Juras...

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 ...
