    Hello

    I would like to suggest the ex SECR "Dance Hall" brake van. These were in service from pre-grouping up to the 1990's being used on engineering trains after brake vans ceased to be used on freight trains. I believe there are examples present on preserved lines. Also, these would look just right behind a Q1 or even a WC/BoB/Schools.

    I too feel this would be more popular in N for space reasons. Generally NR yellow has a huge following too.

    A CemFlo of the type that derailed and finished off DP2?

    Just right for a block train hauled to the North East behind a Class 33 (or two)

    What Alistair has said is our experience (Revolution Trains) ie that modern block trains don't necessarily sell better in OO than N for space reasons ie very few OO modellers have space for full rakes. So although there are more OO modellers than N that doesn't necessarily translate into more sales. I'm pretty sure the MRAs would be a hit in N.

    How about a 45T breakdown crane of some variety (1940's+) The options that I have seen (Tomix mainly) look good but are not truly UK type, would be great to have a UK version.

    Again this might be one to put the feelers out to see if there is demand, something that is so much easier to do in this day and age and probably the way forward for more specialised rolling stock.

    I'm keen for spinewagons and KQA pocket wagons. Can't figure out why the latter hasn't ever been released in N by Dapol, having done the CAD work for OO.

    The Air Ministry tank wagons would be a good one to do.

    JeremiahBunyan They really existed. 13 were purchased in used in the late 60s/very early 70s. Very successfully as well.

    I've always wanted a LT Pannier, but never knew what stock ran behind it. Was wondering if it was just like a promotional thing or if they actually were used by LT.

    How about some London Transport Departmental stock to go with the Panniers? It's a massive missing area for anyone who wants to run a correct LT train.

    Cheers,

    Jon
