    Any chance of a few dancing girls and an ambulance being there? 'Twould be great to have the girls to take my mind off the announcement of 42' flats, twin plough vans and a 3 pack of manganese wagons. The ambulance is on stand by if ye announce an 'A' class!!

  8. Barrier wagons

    Hello boyos - can anyone tell me if at any stage, the wagons carrying the caged or uncaged water tanks for the ammonia trains were ever painted green matching the tanks? Difficult to tell from any of the pics that I have. any help appreciated as always!

    How about for model making? This is a full size replica Tiger tank made from (wait for it) ... timber! The structure is built on a ford transit chassis and if memory serves took 2 years to complete. This Tiger was at a vintage military display in the Curragh racecourse some years back.
