Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys a new search for details about the original railcars No 9 and 10 which where converted buse bodies,  if I can find enough information worsley works has said he would have a go at the etches so we could end up with a part kit,  so please check all your photos and lets see what we can come up with, if you happen to know someone who is the king of GNR buses please ask them what they might know about them

All information will be gratefully received.

 

Regards

 

Colin Rainsbury

Link deleted for clarity as it's not the correct Railcar Colin's looking for 

unless it's this which looks like a bus but actually they sort of all do on the CDRJC

I think that's ex CVR articulated railcar that was re named no10 when moved to Donegal in the 40s, I've got a couple more pics of that in a book I can photograph if required, but I suspect you might mean an earlier railcar bearing same number?

Hi Colin R

Drawings for no. 10 are featured in 'The County Donegal Railway Companion' by Roger Crombleholme, ISBN 1-85780-205-5, including some detailed photos.

Also the 7mm Narrow Gauge Association's drawing book no. 6 has drawings for no. 10, ISBN 0 9513300 0 4.

Unfortunately nothing on no. 9

If it is the ex CVR Donegal no10 you want I've got 7mm scale drawings btw..

Thanks I have the drawings in David Lloyds book modelling the Irish Narrow Gauge, the early pair are providing a bit elusive in finding any details, the only thing that has come to light is the comment they where similar of railcar No 4

Yes I thought it would likely be the other one you wanted...that seems to be the one I can't find any pics of at all !

Thanks PorkyP they are very hard to come by, I have asked the guys at the Donegal Railway centre for help to see what they have, so hopeful they may have some details, but I am not sure where the GNR(I) archives have ended up to check them as well.

Myself I quite like the idea of making no7, the big old one with the long snout..tho I've got a few projects to finish before thinking about yet another..!

Hope the Donegal lads have some useful info anyway, I'd also be interested to see what they turn up if so...
