    Details on FNA wagon

    Yes I saw that label, that's an old BR one. I thought however that the other larger sign said "Not to be shunted", but having blown it up a bit more I see it says "Not to be sheeted..." which of course relates to the dangers of Radiation building up if the vehicle was covered. The Duke

    Tamper Crew Various

    Patch, The large Plasser & Theurer Tamper seen in 3 of the shots, is a 1970's design, which replaced the older type seen in the top left pic, which dated from the mid 1960's. Judging by the state of the larger machine I would guess it is relatively new, possibly one of the first of its type in Britain. Unlike the older machine, this type could cope with tamping pointwork, possibly why its posed over a point in one shot. Your Father in Law looks pretty pleased, so maybe he was one of the first to operate such a machine in Britain ! Best regards The Duke

    So what does it do, and why all the resistors ??
  4. What an obscene colour ! I thought it was a Union Pacific loco for a moment, not Netquirk Rail!

    A comprehensive list of around 8000 vehicles, showing vehicle number, built & scrapping dates (where known), some reference to sets the vehicle may have worked in, a vehicle type description. Whether the vehicle was Pull-Push fitted, had corridor adapter plates fitted, worked without Buffers, and even SR size restrictions. A separate Pullman Car listing follows the SR coach type listing showing all SR allocated Pullmans even when they worked on other regions, and a reference to this where applicable. This list even shows the Pullmans that were repainted green for use in Ocean Liner Boat trains to/from Southampton Docks. The list ends with a KEY to explain the numerous codes used in the lists.
