'OO gauge' interiors, headboards, destination boards, posters

Some of you have been asking about LNER roof boards and headboards etc. You name them, they're there.

Have a look here for a wide variety and at only £3.99 a go, it must be good value

Click on the side panel and there's interiors for teaks and Pullmans

These will make ideal Easter presents instead of Easter eggs.

Interesting that some are offered in LNER style as well as BR. I couldn't spot any interiors or adverts although there were posters, but no tailboard.

Best to specify 'OO' or 4mm scale only in the thread title, to save non-OO modellers wasting their time. ISTR that this is something that Richard has picked up on previously.

Well 65447, I've done some digging since your posting. I have tracked down Laurence Hogg Productions and spoken to the man himself. He has relocated to Worfield, close to the Severn Valley Railway. All items listed are in stock and available as can be seen on his website http://www.laurencehoggproductions.co.uk/kits.htm

On the question of the absence in the range of some tailboards, the answer was that he had been unable to find photographs to enable him to create the necessary artwork. Nobody seemed to want to photograph the back end of a train. So if you find a picture of a tailboard that isn't listed, send it to him and he'll create the artwork.

The sheets are laser printed and don't need varnishing.

He said he's is planning to bring out interiors for the Gresley and Thompson suburban coaches.

His contact details are also listed on the website.

Items are also available on e-bay at http://stores.ebay.co.uk/TRAIN-BOAT-DEP ... 7675.l2563

An interesting snippet picked up during our conversation was that Hornby are looking at possible production in Brazil with FRATESCHI, a model railway manufacturer not available in the UK. http://www.frateschi.com.br/site/index_ ... e=home_eng

Browsed the on-line catalogue, very reminiscent of the style of Jouef and other continental manufacturers since gathered into the Hornby empire.

Quality and detail appear good, although there are very few steam examples to form a real judgement, and the trackwork doesn't look too bad either save for the brass rail.

It wouldn't hurt to have a practical alternative production location to China.

Can anyone confirm the colours used on the tailboard of the "Flying Scotsman" between 1932 and 1939. I have only managed to find one photograph (in the "Headboards" book) and it like white writing on a black background but it would be helpful to have this confirmed.
