    Are we ever likely to see Cow & Gate or Dried Milk Products liveried 6-wheel milk tankers (pre-Unigate - up to late 1959(?)) please?

    Per my other comment, JR_P's comment underlines the different levels of weathering our customers prefer (or not!). We will continue to offer weathered versions (as they are popular) alongside 'pristine' versions, and will also occasionally trial more involved weathered finishes on an occasional basis.

    The only wagons I've EVER bought weathered were Dapol's megafrets.... and only because the real thing is ridiculously filthy (in my experience) and also because the 'paint shop fresh' turquoise is offensively garish, and as aforementioned, never actually observed in reality (by me, at least)....

    And to re-emphasize the point that Jeremiah made on one of the other threads, you CAN weather a 'paint shop fresh' finish, but you CANNOT 'un-weather', which I guess is the clincher.... so I suppose it's like they say, sometimes "less is more"....

    On the other hand you'll spend even less time and money doing your own. It's very easy to weather wagons... Again I see a lot of weather stock sitting on shelves and being discounted.

    More weathered wagons please - I pay GBP5+ for a professional job so it's high value added. You could probably go on forever with limited edition 3-wagon sets, renumbered and weathered with maybe custom loads and tarps.

    Hi,

    How about producing the HOA hopper wagon. Details can be found here: http://www.ltsv.com/w_profile_058.php

    This hopper has had several liveries including:

    Cemex (white/blue)
    EWS Construction (cream)
    DB Schenker (red)

    Here is great a collection of photos showing the different liveries: https://ukrailwaypics.smugmug.com/UK...egate-hoppers/

    Kind regards,
    Ben.

    Yep, definitely need KQA/KTA - never could figure out why they didn't do those for us in N....

    .... would nicely complement the new KFA con flats from RevolutioN ;-)

    I'd agree with a KQA/KTA.

    Joel commented on page 1 about the MRAs and being unlikely to do them - I think this is a real shame as they would work perfectly in N. If Dapol want to make the tooling cheaper do away with gimmicks like tipping (unnecessary).

    Cheers, Mike

    KQA/KTA
    MRA

    And any other NR wagons. There's a reasonable selection of NR Loco options on the market, but relatively few wagon options available to make up trains.

    I'd have thought that the shorter (buffer to buffer) the wagon is, the more you might sell - assuming short wagons would have a lower RRP than a longer bogie wagon, and therefore cost me less to make up a long (by number of wagons rather than overall length) train. I'm not for a minute suggesting that wagon length is the only factor determining RRP, but all other considerations being equal the short wagon should be cheaper - less materials. For example a simple 20' two axle flat wagon should be cheaper than a simple 50' bogie flat wagon. Shouldn't it?

    I would suggest some wagons to form a pre-grouping freight train for the Terriers:

    LBSCR Stroudley 4-wheel brake van http://www.roxeymouldings.co.uk/prod...ods-brake-van/

    Midland Railway 4-wheel van http://www.anticsonline.co.uk/1411_1_1753584.html

    LBSCR 4-wheel van http://www.bluebell-railway.co.uk/bl.../lbsc_box.html

    LBSCR 5-plank open http://www.bluebell-railway.co.uk/bl...pics/3346.html

    Hornby are doing this one in OO, so it might be worth watching how well it sells.

    I am throwing my two-pennyth in with post #20 and #27......A Ransome and Rapier 45 Ton breakdown crane would be fantastic along with a 4 wheeled ex-LSWR coach or an Ironclad BTK........ or...both!

    Vehicles to make a steam era breakdown train would be great

    A KQA Pocket wagon would be great. Also, a Tamper would be great though I appreciate its not a wagon!.
