Just to add to the O&K and Hudson catalogues posted by Annie, here is a Decauville one:

Thanks very much for this. There is certainly an awful lot in there. I had no idea they produced such a comprehensive range of equipment. Even on a quick flick through I spotted, f'rinstance, horse harness!

So much inspiration!

I fear if Peter B looks he'll start building at page one and not stop until he's made everything in the catalogue...

I particularly like the "Type 34B barrel wagon", and some of the other specialist wagons, plus the inspection cars...

Perhaps not quite from page one, but there are a few items in there which could easily be added to the BURPS collection.....
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?

Great resource! Plenty of inspirational stuff in there. Some of those wagons look very flimsy.

Thanks for posting this. A real treasure trove.

Anybody else notice, at the bottom of the loco specs, it claims that all their locos can be converted to "lampant petrol". I was a bit shocked and wondered why anyone would attempt to fire a loco on petrol - then I looked up the definition of "Lampant".
It means Lamp Oil. Sounds smokey.. :lol:
