You should look on ebay.

Last week a very well finished 4mm model of Sam Fay was sold for about £140. There will be another along eventually.

You need to go into trains and model railways and search for Sam Fay. You will not find one immediately, but if you click on Save Search in upper LHS you can set up a system whereby ebay will advise you when one come up. You will have to register with ebay to do this.

If you are after a kit NuCast still do a white metal one, don't know what it is like though. Sherwood Models still have it listed.

My impression of that model is of an "uncorrected" build of the Nu-Cast (or formerly K's) kit, with too-low-slung boiler making the cab appear too tall. Livery looks nice though.
Bachmann A2 to A2/3: from my thread in Model Railways page 56 to 83, also

Hornby A3 to A1/1 Great Northern: from page 84, in resin from page 108.


Apologies for so many missing images - see page 1 for reasons & possible solution.

The use of the Hornby B12 chassis is an interesting adaptation to produce a reliable running loco without the task of building a working chassis. My first attempt as a teenager was a J50 bodyline kit on on a Hornby Dublo R1 chassis. It was not the prettiest of things because the excessive overhang at the back. However it was a good way of building up a fleet of locos when the choice of rtr was very limited and it worked.

Dave; I have a Hornby O gauge model of Sir Sam Fay that I am prepared to sell. It is complete but I do not know whether it runs. It was last tried out around 1988. It is in my loft (situated in Hertfordshire) and I cannot get to it until later in the month as my leg is currently encased in plaster. Let me know if you are still interested; regards, Colin.

Dave;

Re my previous dated 11 May, as you have not responded may I assume you are no longer interested? If I do not hear from you within the next week, I shall have to consider putting it up for auction with those ever so obliging people in Newbury as it is of little interest to me (I inherited it from my Steam Mad Father who had an eighth guage Royal Scot running round the family garden - to his great disappointment I grew up to prefer Internal Combustion as a means of propulsion).

Helpful if you could let me know either way: Mobile 07801 291142.

Best, Colin.

Hello,

My name is Alistair Kewish. I was born in Loughborough in July ,1949.
I am doing research at the moment into an accident that took place in the vicinity of the LNER station in January, 1933.
Faced with being unable to find much data in contemporary newspapers from Loughborough itself, I then chanced across your cross reference to that same accident in early 1933 and would appreciate as much information about the collision as you are willing to provide.

There is only a rather short account of the incident on another website, yet the map accompanying the local area has put the actual location of the sad business on the wrong line!

I am not sure how this has happened but Loughborough Midland and Loughborough Central stations can't be muddled up.
Since Loughborough is my home town, I was hugely pleased when Mainline Steam Trust arrived on the scene in 1971 and thus the long process of resurrecting an excellent and forward thinking main railway route began.

I hope that something useful may come out of this, greatly linked by reading an account of a direct relative of the fireman who decided to jump off the footplate at the very last moment.
Thank you for reading my comments.
