    Can anyone recommend a blue for the curtain cement wagons please? RPSI 3173 has also progressed this weekend - painting next week.

    IRM Rawie Buffer Stop

    Here is the information affixed to the buffer stop on the siding in Wellingtonbridge showing the distance and spacing of the friction elements.

    This week I made a start on RPSI 3173 from a Bachmann BSK donor. I also picked up 6 MIR curtain cement pallet wagons and put them together this afternoon. Another job was to attempt to straighten the chassis on a completed beet wagon which was warped. A dip in some hot water and cooling under weight seems to have removed most of the wobble.

    Looks good Noel, do you have a Bill Bedford handrail bending jig? Handy for these jobs.

    Looking forward to seeing the different liveries on the site!

    Track cleaning. Wagon

    There is a screw to regulate the flow. As it is so heavy it does a good job. I'd get the Dapol one just to repaint it into an Irish livery but I have heard that it only does a so-so job.

    Does anyone know what the red star seen on railway stock mean? (Just finished applying over 200 decals to 4 autoballasters...) Thanks!

    42ft Container Flats Pre-orders begin this weekend at Raheny!

    Are you still considering offering the liner wagons without containers - a few rakes would be great.

    Thank you, it's still sitting there, waiting to be finished.

    Thanks JHB, it's a Bachmann Fairburn, which is a good approximation for now.
