photos/info needed on Moors Valley enclosed coaches

Want to talk about Sir Arthur Heywood's 15" gauge railways? About modern day minimum gauge lines? Have you found a minimum gauge line you've not seen mentioned on the website? Want directions to one of the railways that is mentioned? Whatever your interest in real minimum gauge lines, post your questions (and answer other modellers' questions) here.

photos/info needed on Moors Valley enclosed coaches

Postby DuffieldBank » Thu May 08, 2014 11:11 am

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. =)


Any help always appreciated.

Bogies are to the standard Moors Valley design, channel sides with a hole in the web for the axle to pass through, and two for the long bolts that the Plummer block moves on. Since picador went to the wall a few years ago, they now fabricate their own from plasma cut blanks, bored for the roller bearings.
