For Atlantic 3279's benefit this layout, when it is completed, definitely will be LNER era (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=13110 .)

Progress on Clayton can be found: https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index ... 5-clayton/

John
Three cheers for Clayton.

John,

Great film, but especially 1:05 - one of the equivalent Yeast vans to your 6 wheel fish?

Yes, Jonathan a NBR Yeast or Fruit van.

Thanks for posting the link.

A NBR Diagram 119 loco coal wagon, which has been built for some time, but is only just getting weathered; not something I have done a lot.

It is a whitemetal kit available from Wizard Models.

Atlantic, you may have been mystified at my efforts this morning.

I had been working under 2 daylight lamps last evening, when I looked this morning in strong sunlight, almost no weathering effect could be seen, taking subtlety to a new level.

I have noted a similar effect working on the track for Clayton at the Shipley Club.

Being rather 'green' at this I have taken things slowly. One thing I have noted is that the orange used for rusty areas is a very strong colour. Looking at larger areas in colour photos, the effect is a more subtle red-brown, and being wooden bodied not all over the planks.

Always be aware of normal viewing distance, the loco coal wagon looks better at that view-point than the rather cruel photo close-up.

The other side has been done too, I will see what it is like in the morning and photograph if it looks OK!

I have been worrying - if that is the correct term? - that the inside planks of the GN OCT sides should not be painted (like open wagons). But Russ's photo earlier in the thread (bottom of page 2) makes me think I am OK with the painted finish.

More variations on the Parkside van body theme this thread started with.

I am going to make several versions of the LNER Diagram 16 fitted 12-ton van with 9ft. wheelbase. One of which is below, although the axleboxes will be RCH.

The first will have outside sliding shutters on the ends, RCH boxes and, as with all of them, mostly replaced underframe parts to suit the smaller wheelbase. It will have a Darlington random number.

I will also do a steel underframe Diagram 16 in time.

Have you thought of using the 3H body and doing the odd Darlington built one, John? They come up on Ebay or at shows fairly frequently.

That looks like its going to be a great project John. In N gauge we've got the choice of the Farish Van or the Parkwood plastic kit. Both of these represent the war builds with the vent on the ends. Such a shame as earlier versions would have been so much more useful...

Do you mean Doncaster Jonathan?

Do I? Wherever they fitted straight as opposed to cranked corner plates.

The straight wider bottom corner plates were a Doncaster variation. It appears Doncaster only built a couple of batches of the earlier types of LNER fitted van.

My modelling period is circa 1932 so the later steel ended varieties are not required.

Given the better Parkside moulding, I would prefer that and make up the corner plates from plastic strip and rivets.

I will certainly be doing a few Doncaster products in the unfitted version. Page 118 of Tatlow part 4A shows the fitted versions from Doncaster and Darlington.

The body of the first Diagram 16 with altered door, i.e. central plank milled off and holes drilled for handles. For milling this job it is only necessary to use double-sided tape to hold the work on the X,Y table.

Exterior end shutter made up from plasticard.

Floor altered to make room for etched W-irons.

The lamp Iron will be placed on the RH end post.
