Edit - 'Enprint' not 'Entrant'. Finger trouble.

G'day,

I'd like to resurrect this thread but minus the unpleasantness. Reason is that I'm having a go at some ECJS and GN&NEJS carriages.

Firstly I've reassessed the Peter K etches and I reckon the First Diner is actually no 317 Compo Diner. Originally I made the mistake of accepting the Hoole drawing but looking at photos .... it's wrong..... or at least I think it is. Ken labelled the photo of 317 incorrectly as a first so that might explain something.

I've got some D&S GNR 6wheel bogies but the axle boxes are wrong for ECJS. Is there a decent likeness to the ECJS bogie out there? I looked at the 247 website but found no reference to carriage items. I'm aware of the Bill Bedford etched frames.

Help and (polite) comments appreciated.

Vernon

Speak to the Resinmeister.... he may have what you seek.

Do you know of a suitable brass subframe for 11'9" 6 wheel bogies?

There is a Bill Bedford sprung unit available via Eileen's Emporium. I hope to pick one up at the York Show this coming Saturday.

Thanks Jonathan,
I'll have a word with the chap, see if he can sort me out!
I'll look to use the Bill Bedford sprung bogie frames, as noted above by Mike Trice.

Hello Vernon,

As far as I can tell the Peter K diner is supposed to be that vehicle - sort of, but lacking the recessed doors and with the wrong arrangement of windows and doors where the corridor passes the kitchen, the sides being wrongly "true mirror images" in the etched form. I'm currently trying a different approach to the building of the same kind of vehicle, as you may see over in the modelling section of this forum. Some other interesting developments are also under way and may be of use to you. If you're at York on Saturday a conversation may prove mutually enlightening.
Most subjects, models and techniques covered in this thread are now listed in various categories on page1
