That's is going to be fantastic for Danny's route! OK

Glad to see you have started up your own workshop thread! :-)

Cheers

What a lovely surprise,Darwin.......didn't expect this! We do have locos with Night Ferry headboards, but up till now no coaches, so really pleased to see these.

Nearly there now.

The final livery of a few...

1950s livery...

Fourgons...




Just one problem, for the final days I can not find the UIC numbers for the Fourgons. Can anyone help?

The never had UIC numbers.

They failed to meet continental regulations from 1960 and were repainted in green, stripped of their Westinghouse brake gear and put into normal service.
Numbers were S1S, S2S and S3S.

I don't know anything about the NORD versions.

Progress update on the LNWR Cauliflower - the loco is now more or less ready for export.
This is in original condition with round top firebox, Ramsbottom safety valves, wooden brake blocks and original buffers:

Then as will be for North Staffs - with Belpaire firebox, Ross pop safety valves and later style buffers:

Now onto the tender, then textures, physics and maybe cabs...

At last to texture... loco and tender constructed. (No cab yet.) The loco loads and works in Open Rails but I can not get it to load in MSTS. It is not oversized compared to some of my other models... Suspect I will just have to check a part at a time until I can find and remake whatever tiny part MSTS does not like. Sad

[Looking rather clean here, but will need some heavy weathering to look the part for North Staffs c 1946.]

Still impresses! It would be of benefit if you can get it to load into MSTS as it would be a great addition to the L&NWR route and stock currently in progress. What are the chances it could be repainted in L&NWR livery?

Good news... it does load into MSTS. (For other people, as it seems my MSTS installation has gone haywire again.)

So there will be one along in LNWR livery. However I will need to make a different tender for it (well resize things a bit) as they originally had 1800 gallon tenders, as opposed to the 2,500 gallon tender I have made for the later version.

In a book by Yeadon on LNWR locomotives there's a reference to these locomotives having alternative tenders attached when in Crewe works other than the 1800 gallon one. These were 2000 and 2500 gallon tenders, and the latter was certainly used by the R.O.D. in the First World War. Talbot's book on LNWR locomotives has an elevation referring to a 2000 gallon tender.

Nearly ready with LNWR livery



Versions with late LMS and early BR livery will appear in the North Staffs pack.

Then I will work on some earlier LMS versions.
