    I'm considering doinng a six wheeler or two after the cattle - probably GSWR first - a third and a brake would seem a good option and nice to stick behind your J15?

      I wonder would a Midland one be  better? There are kits of GSWR ones available and several ratio & Hornby things can be repainted to give reasonable approximations of some GSWR types. 

      Yet, the majority of the last passenger-carrying six-wheelers in traffic were Midland 2nds and 3rds, although the last wooden bogies in traffic, PLUS the last six-wheeled passenger VANS, were all GSWR.

      In 1963, Cork still had a good rake of MGWR 2nd & 3rds, which ran along with 6W GSWR brakes and bogies.

      What do you think?

      I'd say a Midland third and either a Midland 2nd or a GSWR 6w compo as a 2nd choice.....

      (I'll take half a dozen Midland thirds, to start!)
