The coaches have been detailed with underframes and bogies from the new Mk1 coaches and the van has also receoved new gangways and modifications to the underframe.

Ultimate Mark 2A Coaches

Mike Oates has produced some suberb Mark 2a coaches, using Electra Overlays - these feature fully detailed roofs and underframes and really look the part!

Penryn Station Exhibition

We recently supplied three OO gauge Class 153s in FGW Livery to the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership to feature on a leyout showing the new operating model at Penryn Station (on the Fammouth branch), which has just had a new passing loop commissioned.

Watch out for more details of this layout in the August 2009 edition of Railway Modeller.

Arriva Trains Wales Cardiff-Holyhead "WAGs Express"

Ian Coe's superb model of the new Arriva Trains Wales loco-hauled rake, top and tailed by Class 57/3s.

Ian has converted the lead 57 from a 47 and used Electra's bodyside vinyls for the coaches.


Some alternative motive power for the Caledonian Sleeper!

Alan Jenkins asked me to produce some decals for the Farish HST Power Cars in Scotrail Sleeper livery and, having plenty of artwork on file for the coaches, I was able to oblige. The livery really suits the HST well and Alan has done a great job of applying the livery.

David Gray has built a superb FGW HST Rake in the attractive "Fag-Packet" Livery.

The Farish coaches have been further improved with close-couplings and interiors from BR Lines.

2-HAP EMU Built by Gareth Collier. Gareth has added full underframe detail from B+H Enterprises and sepearate wire air pipes on the end.

A full article on the construction of this unit recently appeared in the N Gauge Society Journal.
