photos/info needed on Moors Valley enclosed coaches

Would anyone have some photos of the interior of these cars? Or perhaps a shot or two with the doors open? A closeup shot of the bogies would be akin to hen's teeth. =) https://scontent-b-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/t1.0-9/10251886_10203115462740930_7325192624901316568_n.jpg Any help always apprec...

Heywood bogies?

Hello chaps. Would anyone have some photos showing the Heywood bogies sans carbody? Perhaps at Perrygrove?

I'd like to give the design some study.

Thank you

One more question on another plate.

I saw a photo of a makers plate that looked like a clan crest with a circular belt and "Swansea" somewhere on it.

Any ideas? I'm not sure what to Google. LOL

Thx.

Alan Keef perhaps, albeit a modern source. O&K also used a diamond plate featuring just their initials. If you Google "diamond plates" (images) you'll also find a number of "broad" gauge UK manufacturers. Alan Keef it is! How funny, you got it spot on right away. Thanks all!...

makers plate question

Hello folks. I have an image of a diamond shaped makers plate in my head, but for the life of me I cannot remember which companies used one like it. I would like to make a plate for a friend of mine who builds miniature railway equipment and has been very helpful to me. Any suggestions? Getting old ...

Coming soon! Moors Valley ride-in coaches for G9 . i had drawn these using 3D CAD previously, but this new version represents a greater amount of detail. Proper bogies will be included, running metal NWSL HOn30 wheelsets. Info as it becomes available. http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3745/11153066874_...

Simon, I would like to purchase the models in Frosted Ultra Detail, but there is no drop-down choice for it. I know there is a significant price increase, but I think it is worth it.

I really don't think strong flexible is a good material choice for anything that can be seen.

Cheers,

Source for tinkerbell drawings?

Hello all. I'm looking for a general arrangement style drawing for a "typical" Tinkerbell engine. I don't need the full set that are available to build a real loco, just enough to model one well. Thanks! Chris http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3227/2943266160_a257fb56ce_b.jpg

The boxcar appears to be located at the Hagley Museum in Delaware. Given that this museum is based on the site of the original DuPont factory, I suspect it may have seen service on the local railway supplying that factory. I haven't found any specific information as to where it is from though. Look...

Dupont-Hagley museum boxcar

I'm in love with this car. I think it has a WDLR feel to it, even though it is "wide gauge" and located in America. Would anyone have more info on it? Thanks! Chris http://inwilmingtonde.com/media/4054/xlarge.jpg http://media-cache-ec3.pinimg.com/550x/20/bc/b5/20bcb50f4390d75a59368a97e62e6...
